Lovely bass

Squier have come a long way in terms of quality. I use this guitar for recording and have never felt a need to change the pick-ups unlike other guitars. Beautiful design and great sound.

My First Mail Order Bass

First, I would like to say that I’m extremely pleased with my Fender Squire Jazz bass, and I would like to thank the sale’s associates Philip and Elizabeth for helping with the payment plans and the shipping of the bass. Well to help with this review I played bass when I was younger and had bass copies of Fenders which were good, but lacked the quality of course. Now some years down the road I can’t help but marvel at the quality of the so called lesser basses now, it is amazing. My order was backordered, but I set up arrangements to pay on my bass before it came which was cool. We’ll after the wait I finally got my bass today, and I was very surprised. The bass came as ordered, it’s a Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass -Olympic White. I took it out the box which was well packaged and the bass was in the Fender box within the outer box. Of course I got my Sweetwater treats along with a Music & Musicians magazine with it.As far as the bass here’s the technical information you would like to know. The paint was flawless, the neck was flat, and set up very nicely with low action, tuning pegs and string trees all lined up and were lined up over the pick-up’s, everything that appealed to the eye looked very good. Now the sound!I hook the bass up to my Behringer Ultrabass BX1200 bass amp with a Monster bass cable, I checked the tuning even though it was really close to perfect. I wouldn’t have expected that with the shipping, but it stayed pretty much in tune. While playing it there were no fret buzz at all. I hit each fret all the way up to the 21st with no buzz on any string. The tone of the bass was really great and I tested the bass by just playing fingerstyle, then I played slap-bass and it rocked, strummed chords and the all notes rang out, and I even two handed tapped and they all came out. I also tested the sustain of the bass and it lasted over 30 plus seconds after hitting open notes. I did that and put the bass next to the amp and let it feedback, and it got louder and longer of course. I love each of my guitars and I found a new soulmate and I can’t wait to do new projects with it. I just hope what I plan to do with it won’t change the sound or playability of it (making it a Piccolo bass with Kahler bass tremolo), but the bass sounds great and don’t be afraid to buy through the mail because this was my very first time, and I’m very picky (higher end guitar and basses) when choosing my guitars or basses from stores and still love going to stores, but this was a very good first.

All I Can Say Is Wow

I just received mine today and ran it through the paces. All I can say about this Jazz bass is Wow. Fender/Squier really hit this one out of the park. The '70 Vintage Modified sounds almost as good(actually pretty darn close) to my Fenders. It plays like butter and is well worth the price. I had to double check the headstock to make sure it actually said Squier. The fit and finish are excellent. The maple fretboard looks nice with the black inlays. The new fender designed pickups actually sound impressive for a lower line bass. Kudos to Squier on this one.

Plays good once setup

Was disappointed when I first received it because it was completely unplayable. Needed a major truss arm adjustment, intonation & action too and now plays very good for a Squier. Not quite like my old Fender Jazz but for the price difference, the Fender name is not worth the extra money. Sound is surprisingly good and the pickups & controls have no complaints at all. Very good sustain.The tuners work but just seem to not be real smooth in spots. As it stays in tune, not a big deal. The bridge is functional although I used some nail polish on the set screws to keep them from moving. Depending on how much use this gets, I might upgrade the tuners and/or the bridge. Neither are real expensive and it still is a bargain. Will still have to see how it holds up after some use.
