Best Value

I had played guitar for a long, long time, but never attempted the bass. I decided it might be fun and educational to learn the bass, but I didn't want to make a large investment. I saw the Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass on the Sweetwater website and decided to take a chance. I was not expecting the top quality and tone it delivers and I honestly don't know how you can sell it at such a low price. I'm usually a hard to please consumer, but I'm very happy and totally satisfied. Delivery, as usual, was very prompt and efficient as well.

This Bass is a GO

I bought the Squier VM Jaguar Bass Special for 3 reasons: 1) VERY affordable. 2) Pickup combination and boost circuit (active). 3) Transparent red finish and Jaguar body (my wife picked it out for me). I was very pleased by the condition of the bass right out of the box. I liked the fit and finish very much, and the bass is very light (the lightest of 8 basses I currently own). No damage or quality issues to report. Right from the box, the setup was playable but not to my liking. I had to lower the action and intonate it; I replaced the stock strings with DR High Beams, and WOW! This bass plays and sounds incredible and can be adjusted to sound like either a P bass, J bass or an awesome combination of both. Add some boost from the active circuitry and the bottom end fills out very nicely even with medium/light gauge strings. I'm not happy with 2 things about this bass though: 1) The balance is not great - the bass is a little headstock heavy and will drop if I let go the neck. 2) The active boost works great on the E and A strings, but thins out on the D and G strings. Overall this is a great bass for the money. Quality and sound are above avaerage for a bass this affordable, it sounds and plays excellently; plenty of presence and tone. Hats off to Squier again for another quality bass guitar. Worth the money - check it out!
