I bought one of these when they first came out in the late 2000s. Back then, the pickups were Seymour Duncans, and the neck had a super-playable satin finish. And it was seventy smackers less for a new one, including the gig bag. The pickups were the stars of the show ... amazing versatility, getting you everything from your standard Jazz tone to more of a "Jaco" style mid-range sound, to an amazing copy of a P-bass tone if you rolled off the bridge pup. The Fender pups this model now has are much weaker, with much less tonal diversity. So while the current model largely looks the same and still plays decent (and would be a good starter instrument), know that this is NOT the same bass that Squier originally sold under this moniker. I'm definitely holding on to the one I have.

.I was sitting in a music store waiting on them to find me a certain Precision bass when I just pulled this Squier down from the rack to have something to thump on while I waited....then I just fell in love with it. I have been playing bass for over 30 years and I was just amazed at how well this bass felt...solid and well made. I bought it (and another one in a different color) and plugged it in when I got home and was floored by the tonality and bottom end of it..Very, very pleased with it. I have had MiM's before and I like these better honestly. Too bad it has the Squire name on the headstock, but oh well....I love it....

.I own a studio and I'm in a band. This replaced my active bass I loved for over five years. I had no intention of trading... ever! But I accidentally ran across this bass and after playing it I HAD to buy it! No regrets. All my friends are so jealous!

.Good bass especially for the money. Like all squiers i've dealt with it needs a little tweaking to be excellent. Fret ends were a little sharp upon purchase but that was a straightforward fix. Pickups are pretty good though i do intend to replace them at some point. i replaced the stock strings with some labella flatwounds. this did require a little filing of the nut for them to sit properly and quite a bit of intonation work, however the bass is coping well with the extra tension. Personally i would rather take a high end squier model over a MIM fender but that's just me. For the price, get it as a first bass and it will grow with you quite well.

.I was very impressed with this bass! Though at first, I was a bit skeptical. (Seeing the price and the name on the headstock) For the money, this bass cannot be beat. For a long time, I only played the higher end jazz basses, and saw Squire basses a cheap. (I was SO wrong) Not here. The Vintage Modified line is amazing! It doesn't feel cheap. You can pick this bass up, and tell it's a quality instrument. The neck is slim, and easy to move around upon. The electronics are great. It took me a while to dial in my ideal tone. But eventually, I found it. When I first saw the price of this bass, I almost ruled it out as an option. But as soon as I picked it up and played it, I was SOLD. I would recommend this bass for any gigging musician or anyone who likes to do upgrades. The only mod I plan on doing is putting some Aguilar AG 4J-HC's in it. Squire nailed it with this one. BUY THIS BASS!

.I had a Fender MIM FSR J Bass Ash body with tortise pickguard that is sold here on MF. I really liked it. I was given this Squier in Natural finish that looked just like the Fender except for the pickguard, knobs, and the maple neck with black block inlays. After playing on the Squier and doing some of the normal bridge and neck adjustments for intonation, I found that I liked the feel and sound better than the Fender. The pickups are not quite as thick sounding, but I acually like the tone much better. So I sold the FSR and still playing the Squier at my Church. Also the FSR was a back breaker at about 13 pounds. The Squier is much lighter.

.This bass is a very good value, I've had mine for almost one year, and it has not let me down. I purchased the natural (soft maple) one. The body appears to be made from only two pieces of wood, and it is finished very nicely. For the money, I don't think you can go wrong, it's better than many of the MIM Fenders I've seen.

.A real fender sound for 3 bills ! Tuners are o.k. and came pretty well set up out of the box ( adjusted string height on the g string). Still have the factory fender round rounds which were pretty rough on the fingers at first. beautiful natural wood and quality finish, nice weighted body. Only real give away thats its a squire is the headstock sticker/logo. the pick ups at this price point are exceptional. Only change I am considering at this point (2 months in) is replacing the strings with some rotosound "77 jazz" flatwounds.

.I purchased the Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass back when they were producing 3 tone sunburst models and I was actually blown away by the cosmetic look of the bass. If you were to take off the Squier logo, I'd probably have a tough time knowing it wasn't an authentic 70's bass....until you start playing it.

Every bass is different, but the one that I ordered had some major setup problems. The action was amazingly high and fret buzz was pretty evident the lower you played, but after about an hour of making adjustments, it played just fine. Almost every piece of hardware that came with it (pickups, bridge, tuners, pickguard, strings), I ended up replacing and I really learned the art of upgrading on this bass (which I think every guitarist/bassist should learn). Suddenly, a back up bass became a large investment that I would bring to practice or small events when I didn't feel like hauling my Rickenbacker or Lakland skyline Precision bass. In the end, I really liked the product that this bass turned into, I felt it was in the same category as the American made Highway 1 jazz basses you could get for much more.

In the end, this bass hasn't left my house in almost two years since I ended up getting an American Deluxe jazz, but I think the musicians who would want this bass are:

-Individuals who want to learn how to upgrade
-Intermediate or Experienced bass players with small incomes who don't mind upgrading over time (if you're willing to break it in with adjustments or take it to a luthier).

In all, I can't recommend this for serious use or recording, but it will get the job done in a pinch. You simply can't go wrong with a jazz bass, no matter what logo it has on the headstock.

.This bass was one of the worst basses I've ever purchased. I am hoping to sell it and try to get back some of the money I've lost. The frets are uneven, and the pick ups sound thin and cheap.
