Not only does it look beautiful, it sounds amazing and is really nice. When I played it, I loved it even more. Great guitar!
After seeing a few bands playing Jazzmasters, I decided I would pick one up myself. I didn't play it in the store because one wasn't available, so I had one ordered online and shipped to the store. When I picked it up, everything was perfect - string height was great, sound was perfect, and all the knobs and switches worked perfectly. I dislike the .09 string gauge they always string guitars with, so I put on a set of .11 gauge strings to beef up the clean tone, as well as put a little more tension on the strings. I had to do some adjustments to the bridge, and it plays okay. The Jazzmaster bridge for this guitar is terrible. The individual saddles do not stay in place, and any height adjustment raises the intonation screws to where it clashes with the strings. Luckily the fix is easy - just buy a tune-o-matic bridge that drops into the Jazzmaster bridge holes. J. Mascis does this with his Jazzmasters, as well as plenty of other players. Other than the bridge issue, this guitar is solid. Squier has been putting out great instruments. I used to have a stigma with the Squier brand, thinking it was low quality. That is definitely not the case - this shows up the Fender standard models by far.
I've never played the fender brand jazzmaster before and yes, squire is known for making rubbish guitars. However, I think, they really nailed this one. The price tag is cheap, but quality of this guitar is awesome. The pickups sound great, but ill be upgrading those along with basic electronics. The tuners work well and the guitar still hold's tuning after using the tremolo. The only con is you are going to have to change the bridge, to a mustang bridge or a adjust-o-matic bridge(which is normal for jaguars and jazzmasters)the strings WILL pop out if you play too hard. Also, im not sure why squire put size 9 gauge strings on it. These guitars need heavier gauge strings.
