This bass represents a jazz V costing many times the price. I have lots of professional grade basses already that I am happy working with, but no jazz V. So this was a way for me to satisfy that "GAS" without breaking the bank. I knew from the reviews that it would be good and need some set up, but the same can be said about my high end basses. They always need atleast some string change, and fine tuning. This bass was no exception that way. I did a truss rod adjustment, looser, to give more relief in the neck. This helped with some of the fret buzz. But I am taking the bass to my luthier for a good fret leveling to make it play to my standards. It is a remarkably well made instrument for the money. My standards are pretty high, because I spend so much time playing. I really don't have time to fight with a bass that can't cut it. To my great pleasure, the maple body gives the bass a very punchy sound. I have noticed that some people install upgrades (mods) on this modle. I'll say that I am considering a new bridge, but haven't decided yet if I'll be satisfied with the stock one. I'm having trouble getting the B string to fit correctly over the bridge and intonate correctly. I'm looking into other strings, but might do a string through bridge modification. As for the pickups, they need some EQ alright. I have an Aguilar Tone Hamer pedal that provides the same type of preamp as you would have if you installed one on the bass, only you just plug in, set it and play.The Tone Hammer really makes the bass sound like a much more expensive bass. I can get everything from Marcus Miller's tone to old school Motown out of the bass. I bought this bass on a whim, to satisfy my "jones" for a Fender Jazz V. I am very happy. I think the tune up; the hand worked fret work is going to put this bass right where I want it. I expect to pay extra to have that done, but this bass will sound and play well enough to have it's place with my other work basses. I am certain that the bass kicks butt! Looking forward. Recomend getting one. But don't be surprised if you need to fine tune it to your liking. Hope this helps you!

.This bass is everything I would ever want in a bass and suits my taste of classic looks and tone. The pickups and electronics sound excellent. The tuners work excellent. The bridge and truss rod adjust as they should. The frets don't buzz. My only complaint is the color; I would have preferred something more like black or burst, and with a rosewood fingerboard. But otherwise, I don't see what can be found at fault with this bass. Buy it.

.I have to qualify my review of this instrument with the fact that this is my first 5 string, so I don't know how this compares with other 5 string basses.

I bought this bass because I needed a 5 string, and I didn't want to spend a lot of money.

Initially, I didn't like the way this bass sounded and played out of the box, but I almost never do with a new instrument. The first thing I did was change the strings to flats and gave the instrument a good setup. The truss rod needed to be loosened by a couple turns, and the action needed to be tweaked to my liking. The result was an instrument that both plays well, and has clear articulate notes on all strings.

I have a $1600 bass that will now sit and collect dust because of this one. The fretwork is on par with my most expensive instruments, which I am incredibly pleased with. I have found only 2 problems with this instrument. The "A" string will rattle a bit in the nut, but that was easily fixed by putting some paper around where it sits in the nut groove. Most people won't have this problem, as I'm using some light strings. My other issue with it isn't really a problem with this bass, as it is with my collection of instruments as they sit. The pickup on this bass has much lower output than my other two basses, so I can't really switch instruments at gigs if I bring this one. This is not a problem for someone who only takes one instrument to gigs.

.This Jazz Bass V is the 3rd guitar I've bought from MF (the first used one) along with an ES-175 and Tele Deluxe and I couldn't be happier. It was advertised as a Condition 3, and I didn't really know what shape it would be in, but it showed up without a mark on the neck or body, and just normal scratches on the pickguard so I have no complaints, and for the price it's unbeatable. There was some fret buzz, but a simple truss rod adjustment took care of it. It's a great complement to my fretless Jazz Bass (Jaco copy).

.Great instrument for the money, and worthy of pickup upgrades and Pre-amp in the future.
Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass V 5-String Electric Bass Olympic White
.I purchased this bass in looking for my first 5 string bass. I ultimately tried three of these guitars before returning the last for a full refund.

First the pros:
The tone was very full and had a more saturated low end than my American Standard Jazz 4 string. The bottom end was boomy while still retaining overall clarity and punch. As you'd expect from a jazz bass it cut through well in a live mix when I jammed with my cover band. In my opinion It honestly sounded as good as my American Standard.

As far as feel, the bass was comfortable and play-ability was easy.

There were several craftsmanship issues with each of the basses that I was able to try. On all three basses, there were scratches near the body on the binding of the fretboard. I assume this was from filing of the frets. The first bass I tried had an extremely stiff and "grindy" tuning gear and several minor finish imperfections. The second bass also had small imperfections such as a black mark on the back that wouldn't come off. The first 2 basses also had spotting on the tuning pegs. I'm not sure if the spots would qualify as tarnish but it essentially appeared as if water had been allowed to dry on the chrome and had evaporated leaving spots that needed to be buffed out.

The reason that I gave up and returned the final bass was due to the action of the instrument. I prefer a low action (2mm at the 17th fret) and this particular bass couldn't handle an action that low without severe, note choking, buzzing in the upper register. I had a luthier validate my set-up and he told me this was an inherent issue with the individual instrument that I had received. This issue most likely won't be true for each individual bass of this particular model.

Overall, if you aren't overly picky like I am I believe this is an instrument you would be happy with. If you are more particular about aesthetic details and like a lower action then you may want to look elsewhere.

.Most versatile bass for the $$$.
Even more versatile than the active Squier Modified Vintage PJ Jaguar bass.

Great slap sound, great rock sound. Just add a bit of punch and low end on the amp to make it sound perfect.

.Received guitar in a box. They just threw it in a box with no packing material or double box. Obviously damaged. I refused shipment after waiting so anxiously. Big bummer

.I gave this bass a four because of the weak pick ups. Aside from that, this bass is an absolute dream to play. The pics on this website do not do the bass any justice and especially the natural colored one. The body and neck are well balanced and you have that solid and heavy feel which you get from instruments made out of maple. The pots are smooth and not scratchy and the input jack is completely noiseless (something I've seldom seen on cheap instruments). The neck on mine is straight and the frets are not sharp. It holds it's tuning really well and quality and craftsmanship on this bass makes you forget that you are playing a Squier (I have gotten tons of compliments from people who think it's a Fender and end up shocked when I tell them it's a Squier). The only drawback are the weak pick ups. I am going to install some Basslines Quarter Pounder on mine and I have no doubt in my mind that it will give any Fender bass a run for it's money. Bottom line, get this bass. You are getting MIM Fender quality for less than you think.
