top shelfmy wife bought this bass for me Christmas. I must say it is amazingly full of beautiful tone. The two band eq pre amp really makes the difference between a active and passive bass. The jazz pickup is very strong, turn the p bass pickup half way up, and set the bass boost at 9 o'clock treble how you like and you have one great bass for a low price. Im playing through a laney rb7 combo amp......350 watts. sounds fantastic.

Its got some nice tone and the bass boost is really helpful, very versatile but i like using it in rock. Buy it!

Great bassAlthough, the name says Squier dont let that be your deciding factor with this bass. This is a great instrument !
Out of the box needed a good setup, that should go without saying.
Solid contruction with great electronics. Not sure why they didnt go with the Duncan pickups as with the other jags, but that aside still sounds aesome.
The bass boost circuit really adds low end that you wont find on any other bass in this price range.
The body is light weight and balanced just right and wont stress your back to play it for extended lenghts of time.
Again, this is a great all around bass, and a 1000 dollar price tag wont help you sound any better than this 200 dollar gem.
However, if your a gear snob look elsewhere, the headstock does say Squire.

A Steal ... If you can stand the weightOut of the box this bass needed a serious setup. Significant neck bow and the action, intonation and pickup height we're whacked. After a good setup the bass plays and sounds great! Punchy with a great bottom end. This bass is very heavy so get a good padded strap. It will probably need a setup but well worth the money.
