This sounds, looks, and plays better than the $1100.00 American Fender Jazz I had! The pups are HOT! The hardware is decent for the price. Tuners have a nice tight feel but are smooth. The Volume and tone pots have a viscous feeling to them when you turn them, cushion like. The sound is a Jazz Bass. Electronics are quiet with both pick-ups on equal and even with the tone knob all the way up! If you want a good Jazz bass period, get this one and save about $700.00. AWESOME BASS!

I went down to guitar center a few weeks ago to buy a new bass. I hade 600 dollars in my pocket and i was ready to spend it. Looking around i quckly noticed this natural ash jazz bass. From a distance i thought it was a Fender, then i saw it was a Squire. I was impressed by the looks but when i picked it up it almost fell right out of my hands. This bass had to be over 12 pounds!!! I play an Epiphone thunderbird and even i think this bass is heavy. When i plugged this bass into a fender rumble combo amp (By the way, fantastic amp) I was a little surprised by the sound. this bass has Duncan and Duncan pickups, which are copies of Semore Duncan pickups. The sound and tone are ok just a little to gritty for my taste. I almost worshiped the neck with the block inlays, but after taking a closer look they looked like they were drawn on with a sharpie marcker. Instantly a put down. In the end i went on to buy the Fender FSR Jazz bass. Same natural ash body exept with a tortise shell pickguard. Then i went back to get the Fender Rumble amp. If you are limited on cash and want a good jazz bass, buy the Squire classic vibe 60's jazz bass. that was my first bass and i still use it today. Hope my imput helped.

don't miss this bass!

By ricky sparkles

from towson.maryland

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass:

I have previously played a Yamaha fretless bass and decided to look around for a fretted instrument for a different sound. The Fender Squire not only looks great,but plays like a dream. It stays in tune even after "punishing" playing. The retro looks have gotten compliments and it looks like a Fender Jazz Bass I saw in the store which costs hundreds more. In fact, one salesman couldn't tell the difference. The price won't break the bank either--always a plus. When looking for a bass, don;t miss this one.

Don't Go Cheap: Save Up to Get This Bass!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass:

Long story short: I decided to learn how to play Bass, never thought I would need to spend too much money to get started, since I wasn't trying to join a band. $300.00 and 3 Basses later, I learned quality does matter. After playing a couple of basses (in and out of my budget)I decided to get a J Bass. I walked into my local Guitar Center and the guy working the bass area showed me the Affinity J Bass, then 70's Modified J Bass. I recall reading that you will know the Bass for you by the way it feels when you play it. Man is that a true statement. I sat down and started working the fretboard. It wasn't until the salesman came to check on me that I realized I had been playing for an hour! Even though it cost me about $100.00 more than I planned to spend, it was totally worth it. Whether you think this Bass is good or not, it is very true that you have to love your bass to really want to play it. I am sooo in love with bass. Great job Fender and Guitar Center!

This bass is a MUST have for any bassist on any level

By Noah

from California

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass:

If you are looking for that real fender jazz bass sound, look and feel. SERIOUSLY!!! look no further. I played this next to a fender standard jazz bass. I'm not exagerating. The squire sounded, looked better than the fender. This bass is such a steal get it while it last. For those jazz bass nuts like myself and those who just want a good solid as a rock jazz bass. This bass is an absolute MUST HAVE!

The Best Squier Out There

By Jacob Herlin

from Highlands Ranch, CO

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass:

I got this bass as a back up to my Fender American J Bass, and i have to say i play this much more. It has the best fret intonation of any squier i've ever played. It is very durable and incredible tone, not to mention a great look. My only problem is the pickups make some noise when they aren't at the same volume.

The 70's are back!

By BASS BOY

from West Hartford, Conneticut

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass:

This is ultimate bass: giving superb sound quality, and great looks. This is my first bass, but I don't think I'll need another one. This bass is much better than the Precision Bass, the J bass can make much better sound, and also make the same sound has the precision bass by playing with the tones. This bass is great, and look at the price...it's $279.99! That means you're getting a great guitar for almost nothing, what a price! I'll give you advice for this bass, BUY IT, you won't regret it!

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass:

I have played this bass in a few shops around town and really loved it. I finally broke down and bought it and haven't put it down since! I've played many, many different basses and this one is by far the best that i have played. If you are looking for a great bass at a low price this is the one for you!

Way to go Squier!

By Bass4OP

from Winder, Georgia

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass:

I know what to look for in a bass, and I know what I need in one. This j-bass is pretty much my answered prayer, an awesome instrument at a cost my wallet won't die from. First of all, the tone: I expected good tone, but I didn't ever expect the amazing sound that I found coming from my amp at buying time. 70's all the way, this bass's tone seriously rivals that of any true Fender I've ever tested. Second, the playability: It has one of the smoothest, and fastest necks I've ever seen. Very comfortable for my rather thick fingers. third, the appearance: The bass is absolutely beautiful. The natural finish and black pickguard perfectly accentuate each other. All in All, this is my dream bass, only 1000 dollars cheaper, and with a squier logo on the headstock. I bought it recently, and even my dad (one of those who tend to think that all squiers are mediocre a best) loved it.

A Prog Rockers Dream

By X-PROG777

from Bethlehem, Georgia

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass:

I've probably played every fender and squier bass from the Geddy Lee to the Bronco, and I've always been missing that certain punch, that distinctive, rattley chunk that Prog lovers like me dream about. I finally gave up my search, dead set on emptying my savings one day soon to get the obvious answer to my problems; a rickenbacker, until the good Lord shoved this in my face. After getting about 300$ in Christmas money, I tried this sucker out in-store and bought it immediately. It was love at first pluck. The neck is ridiculously fast and thin (good for chubby but quick fingers like mine) The Pickups are hot and put out some nasty sound, especially when you find the right settings and configuration and put some D'addario flats on. Now that my settings are right, think Geddy Lee with much more clarity and depth. I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase! It's a heck of a bass.

Great tone at a great price!

By Garrett Frye

from Jesup, GA

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass:

This amazingly priced bass is practically a steal! Mine had a pretty nice action straight out of the box. It has awesome tone that I didn't quite expect to come from a Squier. The wood finish is beautiful on the body and the neck is pretty fast. It could be lighter in my opinion, but it's a bass for crying out loud. Just get a good 3" wide strap and you're set! Amazing guitar especially for a beginner.
