Don't Let The Brand Name Concern You

By Nick Bell

from Tacoma, WA

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass:

For most of my life, I've avoided Squier products. But I tried this bass one day and fell in love, and immediately acquired it. It has amazing sound and quality, comparable to higher end Fender Jazz basses. No one could believe it was a Squier. I can achieve any sound I'm looking for, from rock, to punk, to metal, and obviously, jazz. I highly recommend this bass to any bassist, even those that have been playing for years.

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass:

I am a gigging bassist. I have owned American J-Bass models. This Squier really impressed me. Either I got really lucky or Fender really stepped it up in their Squier brand. The finishes on the body & neck are flawless. The bass looks beautiful. I set the neck, action & intonation & the fret job on this bass is so good that I was able to get the action very low. It intoned perfectly & the neck stayed strait with no twist. The pickups are very responsive & the instrument is very tonally diverse. Everything from bright leads & slap to dark mellow lows. The only thing that I did not like were the Chrome Dome knobs. I pulled them & replaced them with some black anodized knobs with white marker dots on top to give it a more traditional J-Bass look. I am very satisfied with this instrument. I own a few other affordable basses (Epiphone Tbird PRO, Stering by Musicman SUB Ray-4). I don't think they are going to get much play anymore.

Great vintage tones for a great price

By Brandon

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass:

I'm very impressed with the quality of this instrument. Be aware that it's Basswood, which has a great tone rich in low-mids, but it's a soft wood, so it will eat a bit of your attack. Sustain wasn't an issue--it's just as good as any other jazz bass I've heard, Alder, Ash, or otherwise. But, here's the fun part, aged Alder (like real vintage Fenders) mellows out a bit and starts sounding a little more like Basswood anyway. I decided to run with that and installed some Dimarzio Area J vintage-style pickups in this, and the result is phenomenal. It's got a smooth, warm vintage feel, perfect for the acoustic rock band I play with. If you want something snappy and more aggressive, you might look at the other Squier VM jazz basses made of soft maple--this one definitely has a softer, vintage feel to it, which is great if that's what you're looking for.

This is a SQUIER?!?!?

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass:

I was shopping for my next bass recently and REALLY wanted a Fender branded Jazz Bass, since I have a Squier Vintage Modified '70's Jazz. I wanted something with a 1960's look to it. After a trip to my local Guitar Center, I tested the Fender MIM Jazz in Sunburst and hated it. It felt unfinished and I didn't like the sunburst one bit. Anyway, After a disappointing James Johnston signature bass, I figured I would play it safe and get the Squier Vintage Modified Sunburst Jazz Bass, since I was debating getting one when I got the '70's Jazz. I wasn't disappointed in the least. Squier has really stepped up the game. I look at this bass, and keep thinking of the sunburst Fender American Standard I wanted some years ago. The finish is FLAWLESS. The frets are dressed perfectly. The sound is outstanding. i always figured Squier is that "entry level" instrument but if I was in a band, I would gig with it. It is just the right weight, right sound right everything. The Fender MIM Jazz I tried sounded muddy.. the Squier sounds like a Jazz Bass should (in my opinion). Crisp, clean, deep. I'm going to throw some Rotosound Swing Bass 77 Flats on it, as well as chrome pickup covers for that 1960's surf look. My ONLY complaint... those chrome knobs. It detracts from the FENDER look and makes the bass look like a cheap generic knock-off. I replaced those straight away with REAL Jazz Bass black knobs. To sum it up... don't waste your money on a $600 Fender Standard Jazz Bass. This Squier blows it away for less money.

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass:

    Got this bass as a back up for songs that I have drop tune as well as for practicing at home. This bass has impressed me so far. Played it yesterday at 2 gigs and the sound I get out of the bass is awesome. Neck is great, electronics have no issues, etc. Only two things I don't like is the bass is a little heavy, I feel like I am playing one of my old Warwicks. Also the tuning pegs were a little sticky, hopefully they get better as time goes on. I play a Warwick Streamer Custom Shop, Fender American Jazz Deluxe, Ernie Ball Stingray and American P Bass 5. Very happy with having this added to the collection

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass:

      I started playing bass about 4 years ago now and started with a Thunderbird Goth bass because I thought it looked cool. It had a great metal and hard rock sound to it but the neck was constantly falling because of the way it's shaped and weighted. Also, when I wanted to play more of a groove track or something a little more clear and clean, it wasn't good for that at all. So I traded it in on the advice of my bass instruction for this Squirer Jass Bass. Now I have the best of all worlds! Not too heavy, not too light and feels good when I play it. I could play it for hours. The sound is really warm and it lends itself to almost any kind of music you want to play. And I know "Squirer" gets a bad rap for not being a "real" Fender but I think it does just fine. I play with a friend who has a MIM Fender Jazz and you really can't tell the difference. (except mine cost $1,000 less) :)

              Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass:

              Solid bass, bought for a trip out to the west coast since I didn't want to bring my more expensive basses and risk damage to them. My sound guy was more than thrilled at the sound I got out of the bass. Bass is a little heavier than my American Deluxe Jazz and American Standard P bass but it is a solid bass. Only issue I have is that the tuners stick and don't do too well when I go to drop D or anything out of the normal/standard tuning. Will probably pay the money to replace them with hipshot tuners
