    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass 77:

    I am a long time guitarist and aspiring singer who likes to record songs as a hobby. Within the last year I began learning the piano, and recently decided to take up playing bass as well ... both to supplement my recording activities.

    By no means am I a professional musician, but I play guitar pretty well, my vocal skills are "acceptable", and I am quickly learning basic keyboard and bass techniques.

    I purchased this bass to support my learning and expand the tonal palette of my recording. I was quite impressed with the quality of instrument that I could purchase at this price point.

    Based on my many years of experience with guitars, and owning several higher end models from Fender, Gibson and PRS, I believe that the Squier VM Jazz Bass 77 is suitable for more than just beginners.

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass 77:

    I have nothing bad to say about this bass!! Even out of the box with no setup it sounds great and there was very little intonation. A bit more fret buzz than I like but not enough that I was perosonall worried about. It arrived on a Thursday and I played it out the following Saturday. It does feel very light which I was concerned with but there is absolutely no loss in tone. I used mild effects on my pj bass and this one sounds great plugged straight in especially if you are comfortable blending your pickups. The inlays make this bass the maple finger board and mop inlays offset the black body perfectly.

      Great bass! Great neck. setup well out of the box. I got the 3 tone sunburst, maple neck with white pearl inlays and it's a looker. Miner setup after a few days of use and my specs. From bright and punchy to dark and wooly. I'm very happy.

        Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass 77:

        I had a set of Aguilar Jazz pickups and a John East Retro pre-amp laying around the house so I decided to order an "inexpensive" bass and perform some upgrades.

        Much to my surprise, this bass needed no upgrades!

        I own an Fender American P, a Fender Mexican Deluxe PJ, and this is my go-to bass. I have used it on my past few gigs and my last 2 recording sessions.

        This is a pleasant surprise, and a great value!

          I am a guitar player and I needed a bass for my own recordings. After some research I ended up on this beauty! No regrets at all! Great tone, good playability and beautiful look! Very good bass for recordings and to play live too! If it is in your price range you can't go wrong with this Jass Bass 77!

            I like this bass a lot. It feels nice, looks great and is fun to play. The only drawback - it's a little bit light. But for the price you can't beat it.

            I'm from Mexico, bought this badboy online and picked it up there in USA. I'm not an expert, but this Bass sounds like Odin's intestines and feels like a beautiful woman. I'm 100% sure this Bass is good for any level of player. Tis really sublime. I'd recommend this ax to anyone. And thank you Guitar Center, you made it easier for me.

            Spectacular for the price

            By Bradley

            from West Bend, WI

            Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass 77:

            This bass looks, sounds, and plays like it's priced 2-3 times more. The neck binding looks and feel superb, and the action was perfect right out of the box. I didn't plan to spend a lot on a bass regardless, and now that I've got this in my hands, I couldn't imagine having made a better choice. For the cost- you get a much higher quality instrument than you might expect, and you'll therefore appreciate every note that much more.

            Leave It ALONE!

            By nelson

            from new york, NY

            Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass 77:

            People tend to buy Squiers and think they have to start making modifications. STOP! This bass works top to bottom as it is. It really isn't like a 77. The neck, bridge and pickup placement is actually closer to a 60's. But it does have a way cool pearl inlay maple neck with a 70's style white binding. One other pleasant surprise -- I own several Jazz basses and never thought of them as "slap machines" but this one has a GREAT slap response. Squiers can be inconsistent so you may need to try a few, but I ordered mine online and it was a winner. A little set up and it was good to go. This is proof that an instrument doesn't have to be hand carved from exotic woods to be good. I almost hate to admit it, but this baby is comparable to some of my other basses that cost four times as much.

            Well constructed

            By William Conkey

            from Bill C. Oregon

            Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass 77:

            I was amazed at the quality of this Bass! It really doesn't matter what name is on the headstock! The electronics are great for my amp and particular needs and this is the neatest neck that I have ever owned! Action is really low with zero fret buzz! there is not one flaw in the fit or finish! I added an "ashtray" over the bridge for looks and just love it!!
