Lightweight, offset-waist basswood body

Bass guitars are big and that can mean heavy, too. Supremely comfortable whether you're seated or standing, the Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass comes with the distinctive offset-waist body, but it's made from basswood, which is resonant but relatively light — something you'll appreciate after several hours onstage. And with its classic finish, your Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass will command the eyes (as well as the ears) of your fans!

Neck designed for fast, comfortable playing

Made from solid maple, with a rosewood fingerboard, the neck on Squier's Vintage Modified Jazz Bass is designed to deliver a smooth and fluid playing experience. The 20 medium-jumbo frets provide you with added playing comfort, so you can continue for hours without hand fatigue. A fast-playing neck is vital when you're holding down the bass line, and Squier understands that. The Vintage Modified Jazz Bass features a neck and fretboard that ensure you'll never want to put it down.

Indonesia ROCKS

I bought a Tele out of this shop and it blew my mind. It did have a cold solder joint but even in opening the wiring switch area I found the most perfect wiring I have ever seen on a production axe. It was beautiful. One second with a hot iron and the axe is beyond perfect. I was really looking for a fretless jazz that day and ended up with the Tele, so after being so impressed with the first Indonesian axe I went for the Squire fretless made of Agatha wood. I'm so blown away by the fit, finish and feel of that axe and the pickups sound every bit as good as my Seymour Duncan and Lane Poors that I had to buy the fretted brother of the same bass but fretted. I'm confident that this fretted bass will be as nice as the first two. After playing the fretless my $2500 jazz feels like a baseball bat and the custom pickups sound no better.

Indonesian made

This bass is well made, in a brand new state of the art factory in Indonesia. It plays well, and II am very happy with it. A great value for the money

Hidden suprises...

So I purchased this bass on the premise that it was going to live up to the multitude of good reviews it received. The fit and finish is great, yes. Even the playability was decent. But I could not get a good tone out of this thing for the life of me. It sounded garbled, and weak, even with the knobs turned all the way up. I tried different variations of knob positions, strings, amp sounds...etc. until eventually I bought some new pickups for it. (The DiMarizio DP123 J set... They sound amazing)So why the 2 stars? When I opened up the cavities to replace the pickups, both of the stock ones were wired to the same pot. Whether or not that was intentional, or a quality control issue, I don't know. But I would expect a $300 instrument to at least be wired correctly. It sounds great with the DiMarzios, but its the principle behind why I had to change them that makes me bitter. Next time, I'm buying an American made one.
