Squire modified jazz bass '70s

I got one of these about a year ago, well, maybe 2. I have 4 Basses, but this is by far my favorite. I love to play it. The fit and finish are excellent, the action is great. It holds a note beautifully. I changed the strings to flats. It required almost no adjustments right out of the box! I might buy a sunburst next. Don't know if they're all this good, of course, but all I can say I feel like I got a $1000 instrument. Delivered to my door! I'm friends with the owner of the local music store and I tried to buy it through him. Couldn't do it. He can't sell these, which isn't good. In all fairness, though, Sweetwater's service was really excellent. I got the bass in perfect condition in a week, and they called me to see if everything was ok. They are a really good company.

A Steal For Any Bassist

I had played this particular model of bass at a guitar center and fell in love with the tone. It is an absolute monster for slap tone, fingerstyle, or anything else really. It is an absolutely gorgeous instrument with a feel on par with a full priced fender jazz bass. I waited to get it from Sweetwater because of their warranty and quality service. Being in contact with my qualified sales engineer (shout out to Zach!) made the process flawless. This really is an amazing deal. Fender quality for a squier price. I highly recommend this bass to all levels and all styles. It's a perfect match for me!

I can't believe it's not butter! IT'S THAT SMOOTH!

I was thinking that I would need the pickups replaced, neck tweaking, maybe a bridge butthis thing is pretty darn good right out of the box! I just lowered the bridge saddles a little bit because I like it low and it honestly plays like a $ 1400 Fender Jazz. Great bass! I played my($1000) Gibson SG Standard bass for a few songs at a gig and picked up the Jazz and it played as well and had a punchier sound.

Amazing Bass for the price!

The team at sweetwater are top notch! I wouldn't shop anywhere els for all my instrument needs. This Bass is beautiful. It sounds very good. I'm totally shocked. It's a must buy for the price.

Great deal all the way around

This is my second Squier Jazz Bass from Sweetwater. Their service is outstanding and so for about $1000 I have two very different Jazz Basses w tweed cases. This model is great for 70s sounds; R&B, slap, very percussive in part due to the maple fretboard. The other is the James Johnston model, totally different look and feel and a big deep rumble w rosewood fretboard. I am a guitar player adding bass because of the needs of our worship team, so these were the right price and easy to play out of the box; Sweetwater set up just right. All of the reviews by experienced bass players that have compared these Squiers favorably with much more expensive basses really gave me confidence in ordering. I have to fully disclose that I am really enjoying playing bass, so I put together a pedalboard with help from Sweetwater as well, and am working at competence in various styles. Most of the Dunlop MXR bass effects are plenty for my level of skill. Who knew going to the dark side would be so much fun? Thanks to Marshall and the crew.

Sweetwater Advice

Steve Ploense

Being primarily a guitarist, I wanted to get a bass that wasn't too expensive but gave me the tone and feel I wanted. I started playing the Vintage Modified Jazz Bass and was amazed. At this price point, I got a comfortable neck, great-sounding pickups, and that cool 70s look. This is a fantastic, roadworthy bass.
