This is my first baritone, after many years of playing electric guitar and bass. I wish I hadn't waited so long to get one! I like the offset body and the substantial neck. The overall length is only 3" shorter that my Precision bass, and it has a wider lower bout. It fits quite well in my Precision hard shell case. The frets are smooth and polished, and all of the electronics work properly. I will mention that the guitar was only single-boxed, and was damaged during shipping. The 3-way toggle switch was snapped off. The biggest problem with the guitar is the high "A" string, which is too close to the edge of the fretboard. I had to shove the saddles over to the bass side and reposition the neck in the neck slot to better align the strings. And the bridge isn't much of a design, but it does function. In order to adjust the intonation, you have to loosen the saddles which are held tight with one screw, and reposition them with your finger. The Antigua finish is ugly to most people, but I have always wanted a guitar in this unusual Fender color. I can find no flaws in the cosmetics. The sound of this instrument is its best quality. I find it most useful in the middle position (both pickups), where it has a deep, pleasing throaty tone. I'll be keeping the original pickups. I wish Squier had done a better setup job on this particular guitar, but I love playing it, and can't seem to put it down.

.Love the thunderous chords this creates. My only problem is the high A is too close to the edge of the neck and I tend to pull the string off the edge. Takes a bit of getting used to playing a baritone but I love it. Was delivered quickly and I would recommend this guitar.

.I'm a studio musician, so I have to have a baritone guitar of one form or another in my toolbox. This guitar is extremely ugly. It has a face for the studio, and who cares what it looks like there? :-) It's not as brown as it seems in the photo - it's more of a vomit green. It looks like it came off of a 3-D printer rather than something that was painted by a person.

I got my first one and the bridge was mounted off-center; the high-pitched E string was on the edge of the frets. I sent it back to Custom Guitar's Friend, and they kindly sent me another guitar....with a bridge that was also mounted off center but not quite as badly. I'm keeping the new one.

I'm not impressed with the bridge on this guitar -- you can see the threads of its mounting screws between the bridge and the body of the guitar -- it sits off the body! There's one screw towards the tail of the guitar, and two screws on the head side -- this seems backwards and fragile to me. Mine came with a lousy setup; I'll be taking it to the shop (and paying an additional sum for it) because it needs nut filing in addition to all the adjustments you can make yourself at home.

But it does sound good.And it resonates nicely. And so I'll keep it, and it'll be used often! You want this for Americana, more-or-less clean stuff. The single coils are not for Heavy Metal -- you need the humbucker version for that (which Fender makes). Although I would think that a punk rocker could happily make use of this with a semi-overdriven sound.

.I play bass and guitar, this falls right in the middle.

Stated in description tuned A to A. Mine came B to B, but put it in A to A, which is from low to high: A D G C E A.

Comes with .14 .18. .26 .44 .56 .68 strings: same as D'Addario EXL 157 Med Baritone-(called Fender to verify). Strings feel adequate for the tuning. Plan on putting Ernie Ball baritone strings on, only 2 strings on that set are bigger than what it came with, but I want a .72 on the low string for doing drop G.

Had to adjust action, intonation, and neck just the same as most guitars I've bought.

Cleans sound great. OD/Distortion sound good, but is very noisy-have to position yourself just right to get it to cancel. A friend may help my shield the pick up cavity...hope will help.

Definitely worth the money.
Warning: the neck is a bit thick, but likely needs to be.

The guitar has great tone and is more versatile than most single coil baritones. The 30in scale length takes a bit to get used to, but the neck feels and looks brilliant. Since it does have a 30in scale length, it handles a to A tuning easily, though I keep mine tuned b to B. I also really like the material, binding and inlays. However, with thicker gauge strings it's a little difficult to bend. The finish is starting to grow on me, and in different light it really pops.

It seems to be a mash up of spare parts, which I actually like. It has different control locations and the output jack is from a Strat. As for the bridge, I'm not sure I completely like it (it's the same kind found on Danelectro baritones). Two problems are that it has two screws as mounting points, and seems to be slightly misaligned with the rest of the guitar. You notice this over the bridge pickup pole magnets and the bottom side of the fret-board, if you aren't careful with pull-offs, the string can come off of the fret-board, because there is so little room from the edge. Luckily, with the binding there, it doesn't catch on the frets too much.

Another problem with the guitar is that it's a little noisy (probably from lack of proper shielding). If you are going to record or bump up the gain/volume, you're going to need a noise gate. I plan on insulating the pickup cavities with copper tape. I'm also going to be changing out the pick-guard for a white pearl one, which I might add has to be custom made because it doesn't use a regular Jazz Master guard. While I'm doing that, I'm going to move the pickup selector if there is room in the body cavity, because it gets in the way while strumming.

Overall though, I'd still recommend it for the value. I just wanted a baritone to fool around with, so I wasn't expecting much from a Squier. I love the neck though. It's well made and apparently from a short scale bass (the same they use on bass VI's I believe).

.Really this is a bass VI/jazzmaster mashup. It sounds like a bass when you plug it into a guitar amp, but with some of the twang you expect from a bari'. If you're used to a 27" scale you'll feel the difference playing this axe, but a few solid sessions should have you used to the stretch.

So far I've run it through a 220w solid state with its own distortion and a 100w tube head with a fuzz pedal, the latter was better but still not quite ditry or growly enough for my application.

I've already ordered a full piece of pickguard material to swap out the (IMO) ugly pickguard on this guitar, might see about throwing some HB's in when I fabricate the replacement.

Don't let that make you think I don't like this guitar (note: 4 out of 5 stars).

The one I bought was from a local music store, I happened to show up right after it had been all strung and setup, played very nice and stays in tune like a beast.

If you have the time to find a distortion/fuzz that you like with a single coil bass/bari sound you'll definitely be happy with the result.

Maybe if I'm feeling motivated I'll post a follow up review post mods.

.I bought this Squier baritone to add musical range to my playing, by moving in the opposite direction frequency-wise from a 12-string guitar or mandolin. The guitar plays and sounds great. The hardware/pickups are what you'd expect on a Squier but completely serviceable. The fit and finish is pretty amazing for a guitar at this price.
The main point I want to communicate for anyone considering this instrument is that the open tuning is one octave below a standard guitar capo'd at the 5th fret. For anyone that plays in that position, this baritone immediately opens that material up for adaptation. Many baritones are tuned to B but this one is in A (A-D-G-C-E-A low to high) and i really like it. You can almost get some organ/pedal tones on jazzy tunes. Be prepared for the long scale as playing some chords in the open position require some stretching.

.I've never had a baritone and I've always wanted a jazz master before I bought this. I have to say, this guitar was worth the price. It sounds so good and feels like a quality guitar. Everything was perfect right out of the box. I didn't have to adjust or change anything. Stays in tune really well. Definitely will be keeping this and using it when I am tired from playing regular guitars and need something different. Also use it for new song ideas. The finish is kind of weird but cool at the same time. Color scheme makes me think of a martian or flying saucer. Definitely unique. Only thing I wish is that the pickups were black and a case would come with it. I mean, really? no case? If it came in a case I would have given it five stars. Black pickups would contrast better too. Other than that, this guitar is really cool. If you want a unique looking, good quality, baritone guitar without spending over a grand, get this!

.I lowered the bridge just above a buzz so I can play lead, works good.
Squier Vintage Modified Baritone Jazzmaster Electric Guitar Antigua
.First off, I must state that this is a fantastic guitar, and quite a head-turner, for better or worse. At first, I was somewhat ambivalent on my feelings regarding the Antigua finish; however, having had this guitar a couple weeks, I can say that I truly do admire it, and I am glad that that this is the finish with which it came.

The guitar feels nice, even with its 30" scale, and this is coming from someone who has relatively small hands, too. There were a couple of cosmetic issues, with even the bridge pickups having some nicks in them, as it seems the technicians accidentally dug into them somewhat while tightening the screws. The nut seemed to be sloppily filed, but not too bad. Overall, it looked nice but I knew it was going to need some work.

THIS GUITAR DRASTICALLY NEEDED A SETUP. It would NOT stay in tune, which was very noticeable with certain chord positions, especially with the E string. Also, this came tuned B-B, which put a lot of strain on the neck. It's obvious from the start that this guitar is best suited for A-A (ADGCEA), so it is somewhat upsetting that the manufacturer would have someone set up the guitar an entire step up.

FRET BUZZ LIKE CRAZY from the 5-7 frets. I mean, I expect a little buzz here and there, but it was as if this guitar were set up as a bad joke. The person setting this up must have quit the same day, because this was by far the worst guitar setup I have ever seen in my life.

It may be a cheaper guitar, but be prepared to put some work into this bad boy. I did what I could, but I am no guitar tech, so I had to take it to a local shop to get fixed up. The original set up fee turned into a hefty set up fee, as it needed a lot of work to become functional. Frets had to be filed down, as they were horrible filed in the first place.

In short, it's a great guitar, but be prepared to fork out some time/money to make it seem like a professional instrument. Also, GET A BASS CASE, as a guitar case will NOT fit.
