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 V comes with the distinctive offset-waist body, but it's made from maple, 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 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. A fast-playing neck is vital when you're holding down the bass line, and Squier understands that. The Vintage Modified Jazz Bass V features a neck and fretboard that ensure you'll never want to put it down.

Great Jazz bass

Best 300$ I've ever spent on a bass for sure! Has a fantastic look, not heavy as a brick, and great tonal range. IM gonna drop some EMGs and make it a beast. At that point it's as equal to an 1000$ bass in my opinion.

Sweet action (literally)

Not only 5 stars for sweetwater for taking great care of me, but the sent me this bass. Action was great, intonation spot on, and tone for days. My home studio is a stronger into thanks to this guy! Don't hesitate because it's a squire. My bud Greg has one of these I modified (pickup change) that is the requested bass at his church (over musicians, fenders, etc...).Get it!

Amazing Bass!!

THIS BASS IS AMAZING FOR THE PRICE!!!! I bought this bass after reading many reviews and trying it out at a local music shop. This thing is a monster with it's tone variance and how well it came out of the box. This is my first time owning a jazz bass style and I have fallen in love. I played this bass the same day for one of my bands shows. Iv never bought anything from Sweetwater before, but after this purchase they will have my business. Very professional and customer service oriented. I received a personal call to verify my order and several emails including when it was shipped, the same day I ordered it, and also my Sales Engineer, Ray, sent me pictures of my bass just to have and show off. I also received follow up emails as well. Overall this is the best purchase and best customer service I have ever received. Amazing bass and an amazing company.

Stunned by the quality of this bass.

This bass came very well set up out of the box. Maybe I just got lucky but this bass plays and sounds as good as my American Fender basses. I know that sounds silly but it's true. What a tone monster this thing is. The first couple of days, my fingers were sore because I couldn't put it down. I have 35 years of playing bass under my belt and I am completely blown away by this instrument. I sold a mexican fender 70s jazz bass to buy this one(my wife wouldn't go for me buying any more basses unless I let one go) and I don't miss the MIM fender. This is a much better bass in every way. The tint and gloss of the fretboard is something you will have to see to believe. I am so totally overjoyed with this purchase that I plan to get the 5 string precision version very soon. Dealing with Sweetwater is like a breath of fresh air compared to the other online retailers I have dealt with in the past. Zach and Ryan really made me feel like I was their only customer. Very pleased with them and this amazing bass. I am a believer now. Squier basses have gotten to an amazing level of quality. I don't know how they do it but I have owned many basses over the years and for me, this is a perfect fit. Buy this bass.

Pretty Amazing for $300

I purchased this bass because of some reviews I had read on several blogs, it is white, under 10 lbs. It arrived and played pretty well right out of the box, (Sweetwater is great with QC and setup) and I have a love affair going with it. The tone is quite amazing, and after a little of my own setup to personal preferences, I just love the thing. I am really amazed by the quality for a $300 instrument. I had tried the Fender $1,800.00 version, and this bass, to me is by far a better value. I liked it so much, I bought the 5 string Squire P bass, and it is also a great buy, I call them the twins, both white and both play and sound amazing.
