$299 for a high quality Jazzmaster guitar! STOKED...It is absolutely absurd, ridiculous, even CRIMINAL, that you can buy a guitar of this level of quality for only $299. The guitar arrived INTONATED, there was 1 pickguard screw missing, all switches worked, and all of the rhythm and lead settings sound awesome. Even the fret ends are finished. The Indonesian factory must have the absolute best trained workers on Earth. This is my third guitar I've purchased in the Vintage Modified Series. Though impressed with my Jagmaster and Telecaster Special, of same brand and series, the Jazzmaster takes it to the next level. I'd happily pay $500 for another one if I knew it would be of the same quality.

a SWEET guitarthis guitar is the best squier ive ever put in my hands. absoulte amazing playabilty. i thought the bridge was really gonna bother me but after i seen it in person it was a really neat setup. and i really dig the strat input and the vol knob not being in the way like on an origninal jazzmaster.

Amazing Quality at an Affordable PriceFantastic playability. The scalloped body is really comfortable. The neck is fast and the action low. Plus it's a looker, too. It's a terrific value for such a high quality guitar. Fender/Squier has done it again!!

Candy Apple Christmas present!I must first complement Sweetwater for their excellent customer service. The guitar arrived in perfect condition, well packaged, and had been given a good basic set-up. I played it for a while to ensure everything was working properly, then decided to set the guitar up to my liking.
The frets were nice and level, so I took some relief out of the neck, and lowered the bridge a little...this guitar dialed in perfectly, with no adjustments needed to the nut, no high frets, no problems whatsoever!
I build guitars, and must admit that in this price range, I cannot compete! If you are looking for a good guitar for a starting player, or a gigging guitar that you don't have to fuss over...here it is!
Why not a "5"? Electronics...the switches are not top of the line, some scratchiness, and a tendency not to connect sometimes...I'll investigate during the first string change.
Tone and sonic versatility are adequate in this design...it takes premium wood, and high-quality electronics to go beyond what Fender has done with this guitar, which is an amazing value in this price range.
