Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass V Special 5-string Solidbody Electric Bass at a Glance:
  • Big tone with classic tonewoods
  • Dual pickups provide a broad range of sounds
  • Active electronics for optimized tone
Big tone with classic tonewoods

Squier's Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass V Special features a set of classic tonewoods for killer bass tone. Its solid basswood body gives you a broad and extremely rich tone that has a particularly strong low-end resonance. To add snap and warmth, Squier also gave the Jaguar Bass V Special a maple neck and rosewood fingerboard. Together with its flexible pickup combination, the 5-string Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass V Special lets you get the most out of any bass amplifier.

Dual pickups provide a broad range of sounds

The powerful tone of the Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass V comes courtesy of a Fender-designed Jazz Bass single-coil pickup in the bridge and a Single Split-Coil Precision Bass V pickup in the middle. Adjustable pole pieces in the Jazz Bass pickup let you tailor your bass's sound and response. These pickups sound fat and full on their own, but you can take their tone into new sonic territory with the powerful tone-shaping capabilities of the Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass V Special.

Active electronics for optimized tone

The Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass V sports an active bass boost control that lets you dial in an extra dose of low-end power. Combined with the master tone control, no bass tone is beyond reach with the Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass V Special.

Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass V Special 5-string Solidbody Electric Bass Features:
  • An affordable 5-string bass with active electronics
  • A true workhorse bass that plays and sounds great
  • Jazz Bass and Precision Bass pickups deliver fat, full tones
  • Fine-tuned tone controls give you access to any type of bass sound you need
  • Comfortable maple neck with a modern C-shaped neck profile and a rosewood fretboard

Lay down the low end with the 5-string Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass V Special!

Awesome bass for an awesome price.

I have the black version and let me just say, this is a great bass for the price, especially when you think of the fact that it is an active bass. For those of us that are used to using an active bass, there are no issues.Some people might not feel comfortable playing an active bass because they might think it is too noisy or they might run out of battery power while they are gigging but this bass has a lot of different rich ranges and tones that would not be there in a passive bass. The sounds that comes out of this beast are amazing. It is not too noisy you just have to remember to keep an extra battery around when you gig. I still haven't had to change the battery on mine, after five months of having it and playing it quite a bit.Another great thing about this bass is that it has the p/j configuration of pick ups. you get the p bass sounds and the J bass sounds as well.The neck is a bit massive but for a five string, it is fairly easy to play. It is heavy but with a good wide strap that should not be an issue unless you suffer from back pain. The only thing I plan to do to this bass is switch the existing bridge to a Hipshot hi mass bridge.I also plan to get the four string version of this bass soon.I would highly recommend this bass to anyone, even professionals.
