Squier Vintage Modified Jazzmaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
The Jazzmaster is all about great tone, playability, and individuality
The Squier Vintage Modified Jazzmaster has a colorful back story. By the late '50s, Leo FENDER® had some new tricks up his sleeve, and a number of design refinements were infused into the Jazzmaster when it was introduced as an upscale alternative to the Strat® and Tele® in 1958. The Jazzmaster featured a radical-for-the-time (but incredibly comfortable) contoured offset-waist body, dual lead and rhythm circuits, and single-coil pickups that produced richer, warmer sound than its stablemates. The Jazzmaster was originally aimed at, you guessed it, jazz guitarists, but it found a home in the burgeoning Surf Music scene of the early '60s. Today, the Jazzmaster is celebrated as one of the two "alternative" Fenders (the short-scale Jaguar® being the other) and is making music in the hands of artists as diverse as Elvis Costello, J. Mascis, and Thurston Moore.
Duncan Designed pickups give this axe a range of tasty tones
Squier's Vintage Modified Jazzmaster is packin' heat in the form of two Duncan Designed JM-101 single-coil Jazzmaster pickups that serve up everything from glassy cleans to jangly crunch. These pups are armed with with Alnico V magnets (same as classic vintage pickups), which give them the warmth, clarity, and punch to compete with your drummer. (If you're in a band, you know exactly what we're talking about!) This pair is voiced in accordance with your tonal needs: a vintage-toned neck pickup and a higher-output bridge pickup. When you crank your amp, you get a gamut of tasty tones, from chimey jangle to aggressive crunch. And thanks to the Jazzmaster's dual-circuit switching, you can preset your lead and rhythm tones and select them at the flick of a switch.
Squier's Vintage Modified series: hot mods of classic Fenders
Squier's tapped into something really cool with their Vintage Modified series: hot mods of classic Fenders, all sporting top-shelf materials and components, with primo fit and finish. If you're a guitarist or bassist, you'll likely agree that vintage Fender guitars and basses are heavily lusted-after items, so it's great that FENDER®, in their infinite wisdom, have set their Squier subsidiary free to create hot-rodded and affordable versions of the classics.

by CJ Beuhler from United StatesI 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 ens... read more [+]ure 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. close [-]
