I felt it Only Right to Update my first review.
It will take adjusting and work on the Entire bridge from body placement to saddles for this guitar to be What It is Meant To Be. A Very Fine Playing Instrument.
Yes it's true I Was Very put off by the way it handled, however I have never owned such a tempermental out of the box guitar in all of my life. Bad ones, yes;however, this guitar is Simply Tempermental and Once the adjustments are made as far as stabilizing the bridge and putting a set of New Saddles on it
The guitar Is Possibly The Finest, sweetest playing and sounding instrument I've owned.
Get past the initial phase and you may just be knocked out. I Am!!
Pre Set Up: seemed like a Bad Joke

Welp.. It is a squier

The neck is noticeably thinner and the bridge can go out of wack if you whammy a little too hard a little too often but for the price it's a nice cheap little guitar.

Solid starter electric guitar!

By Samantha

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar since I was looking for a decently priced electric as I've only played acoustic and I was apprehensive about getting something too pricey and being disappointed - but I was pleasantly surprised. This is a great starter electric that plays very well and I'm obsessed with the color and sound! My only issue was that the E string was a little buzzy when I first got it but that was an easy fix. Great guitar, I really love it!

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Guitar:

I'm in 2 bands, A Jazz bluegrass style band and a Grunge band and play a little bit of everything. It can handle anything you throw at it. It plays great, Feels great, and Sounds great. One thing that sucks is the bridge though. Just get a mustang bridge and thats that. I even prefer this over some Fender Jags.
This is a great guitar, If you're thinking about getting it, Do it. You wont regret it.

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Guitar:

I play music in my spare time more of a hobby these days,,but my first guitar when I was little was 68 jaguar with block inlays and ive always missed that through out the years and then I seen this one,when I read the reviews I had to have one to try it out,and low and behold its my favorite axe and my fiance got me one,it sounds just perfect but the bridge needs to be replaced with a Mustang bridge and that's only about 10 bucks and be sure to use 11s or thicker because those guitars play better with heavy guage and that's all you need to do to it,i have a PRS and I still prefer my Jag,,get one and youl thank yourself I promise..

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Guitar:

    Pretty decent guitar.. I'm not a professional, all I can give is a opinion from someone who is still learning an instrument. Solid guitar, I would recommend to anyone who is just starting out but wants the feel of the legendary Fender Jag. Has some fret buzz, and the pick ups probably could be better, for the most part I would say your mostly paying for the look of the guitar. Overall it's decent. Can't really complain.

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Guitar:

    when I went to guitar center I wasn't really looking for this specific jaguar, I originally had my eyes on the 65' jaguar by fender because I couldn't afford my dream kurt cobain signature fender jaguar. ive wanted a jaguar for about 2 years and couldn't afford the 65' jaguar at the time, but I was greatly amazed by this squire jag! it has all the same tone switches and everything and provides me with a clean crisp tone (most of the time) and hard hitting distortion which was exactly what I was looking for when it came to the sound I want, and would sound even better with some foot pedals too! Ive only had two problems with this guitar having a bit of a fret buzz hence the (most of the time) but I realized it was coming from the strings coming off their saddles on the bridge of the guitar while I play, but is a cheap fix if you buy a mustang bridge to replace the jaguars, and this is also a problem because I play with heavy hands, so other softer players may not have this problem. over all, this is a great guitar for every sound and it surely wont disappoint any player!

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Guitar:

    Beauty in looks dept. but an absolute dog playwise
    needed new saddles out of the box
    and the set-up was way off. Couldn't keep tune for the love of Leo.
    Lucky for me I have a good friend who always gets my business at Set-Up time so i didn't get reamed with a big fee.
    Keep clear of this Squier Jaguar unless you just like headaches.

    Good Guitar Couple of Problems

    By Josh

    from Beaufort, SC

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Guitar:

    I received this jaguar in Olympic white as a gift. First off the finish is beautiful the guitar is all around amazing, great sound and play-ability. Only a couple of personal issues with dexterity, and pick up switching, and a problem with the bridge. My issues were, since I'm left handed, the trem was in the way. The switching is a little if-fy with the roller switches and I would suggest doing a switch blade. The bridge saddles leaves a little to be desired, with shallow cut ridges, BUT this can be fixed simply by replacing the saddle piece and saddles with one from a mustang which has a deeper ridge cut. Hope this was helpful.

    No Better Value for the Price

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Guitar:

    Got this guitar a couple of weeks ago and was simply blown away. A friend of mine used one during a gig I attended and the sound of his was amazing so I figured for the money what the heck, Glad I went ahead and made the buy! The guitar has tremendous range and will easily give you the sound you want whether it is blues, rock or some serious surf sound. I have some other more expensive Fenders but this one is my new go to guitar. Went with the surf green just cause and the fit and finish of the guitar was way better than expected for the price. Overall, this one is a no brainer, buy the guitar!
