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

          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!!

          nice bass, great price

          By George Loose

          Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass 77:

          I bought a Pino Paladino model Classic Vibe Squire P-bass off Craigslist about a year ago and was completely blown away and had to change my opinion of Squire instruments. So with that experience I've been wanting a J-bass and was already looking at the Squire line because I wanted something good but inexpensive to play in bars where something could happen. I was ready to purchase a regular Vintage Modified but literally at the last minute noticed this model. '77 has always been a year of significance to me as it was the year I graduated and then the look of this particular model [black] with the neck binding and MoP inlays sold me. I'll admit I was very apprehensive about purchasing an instrument via the mail but for the price plus the Black Friday discount I figured it was worth a try, glad I did. Arrived in a few days and looked as good as the pic. Had a couple of issues which were to be expected and acceptable for an inexpensive import. The pick guard is lifted up a bit in several spots and the jack plate did not sit flat on the body. I had an MiJ jack plate laying around so switched that out. And though the pick guard is really not that bad I already had planned to get an aged pearl pick guard anyway so that was also no biggie. I might change the bridge too at least to a low priced heavy type because the plate on this one looks like it might be straining not to bend. Had it not been for those three things I would have given it 5 stars. Now the good part. It plays every bit as good as my expensive PJ Deluxe and I have no plan to change out the pups. It has a great percussive attack yet is bright and rich in tone and with more than adequate sustain even though it is very light. I didn't used to like light instruments because they felt cheap and unsubstantial but with age and back problems I welcome that now. But having said that I don't feel I'm making some great trade-off or sacrifice, because this is a very nice bass. So far the tuners seem fine and it stays in tune. The fit and finish of the wooden parts, paint and frets seem flawless as far as I've been able to tell. One thing though, I was expecting a satin finish neck and it is a poly finish but it is not sticky like some so it's not that bad. But I probably will sand it off at some point and apply Tung oil which is my favorite. At least from my perspective I say you can't go wrong getting one of these and I plan to get at least one more because our set list is about half and half, E and E-flat tuning. My Squire-P has flat wounds for that sort of stuff. And then I'll be leaving my high$$ instruments safe at home.
