Lightweight, "offset-waist" soft maple 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 V comes with the distinctive "offset-waist" body, but it's made from maple, which is resonant, but relatively light, which you'll appreciate after several hours up on stage. And with its classic finish, your Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass V will command the eyes - as well as the ears - of your fans!

Neck designed for fast, comfortable playing

Made from solid maple, with a maple fingerboard, the neck on Squier's Vintage Modified Jazz Bass V 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.

Indonesia

This is my first Squier bass from Indonesia to love. I've had two other Indonesian Squier basses that were insanely terrible. I also have a Squier MIC (China) that's amazing. This Indo 5 string is awesome. It's beautiful, looks like high grade wood, it plays super smooth, and has a wide range of adjustable tone. There's not a tone I haven't been able to dial up, and they all sound great! I've dropped the tuning down a whole step, even on B-string to A-D-G-C-F, adjusted the neck/bridge, and this thing sounds incredible. Great, flexible tone, slapping, funk, jazz, rock, motown. This bass will probably soon become my workhorse.

Really Nice Bass

I own 3 basses that are worth 1000+ and this bass compares to them. I received this bass on thurs and had a gig sat. The only thing I could play it through was my small practice amp as my real rig was sitting in my drummer's basement. I like what I heard and the it played beautifully. I decided to give a first set test. I was a little worried about the passive pickups, as I like the active. The nice clear low end with a great punch sold me. I played the bass the rest of the night.Bravo Squier. Will never pay 1000+ for a bass again.

All I was expecting, and much more.

I've bought other lower-priced instruments with mixed results. Not here. The Squier VM Jazz Bass V (natural) is fantastic, I'd buy it again. The action is amazing, Frets were all perfect, no sharp edges, and not one bad note on the fretboard. Very stable and accurate tuning, even on the low B string. I can easily play songs on it that I have struggled to play on other basses. It is heavy. Solid, with amazing low-end response. Pickups sound just fine through a good powerful bass amp. And you always have the option to upgrade any pups or hardware, but it all works together seamlessly as it is. I read that some have changed out the bridge, only to go back to the factory standard. The notes and harmonics ring out for a very long time.Get one. You'll probably have to back order it, just like I did, these are very popular. These VM Squier models are surprisingly well-built. For the price, I can't imagine a better made, or more responsive five-string bass. Jimmy Hart is an excellent Sales Engineer, and he always answers all of my technical questions about every purchase. And having the ability to choose your exact model from the guitar gallery before you buy is what makes Sweetwater my choice for professional music gear.
