First electric bass

Bought this for my son per the recommendation of his guitar teacher. Excellent price, shipped quickly and arrived in perfect condition. Sweetwater has the best customer service I have experienced in a very long time.


I was looking for a short scale bass on the order of a Mustang so I called Mark my bass aficionado. He immediately sent me links and customer reviews on the Squire VintageModified Jaguar Short Scale in Candy Apple Red. This bass has a mini Jazz neck that has no rough edges and plays smoothly.It has a P bass neck pickup which is reallystrong and a Jazz bridge pickup which is a bit weaker. Overall you can conceivably dial in any Fender bass sound with this little great sounding and playing beast.At $200 this is a modders dream.I replaced the Jazz PU with a Custom Shop 60's and now it's a comfy little monster.Amazing!

First Bass Guitar

This is my first bass guitar, so I didn't really have anything to compare it to sound wise. With that being said, I've owned a handful of 6 string guitars, so I know what I like and don't like about them. This bass is awesome to play on, simply from a physical standpoint. The neck is super straight and nice and smooth. the scale is very manageable. I tried some full scale basses in Sam Ash and Guitar Center, and they seemed a bit much for me. I typically prefer lacquered maple necks, but this one doesn't bother me at all.I've been using Rocksmith 2014 to learn how to play, and I've been able to get to 80%-100% song accuracy on most songs in just 4 days of playing. I'm not saying that I'm good at playing, but I feel like this bass is very inspiring. I'm sitting at my work desk right now typing this, wishing that I were playing this bass instead :)As for the sound, I'll mirror what most other users have said. The neck pickup sounds pretty good (though too much low end at high volume), the bridge is very thin. You can get a really nice tone by placing the neck around 60-70% and mixing in the bridge to your liking. I'm going to replace the bridge with a Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounder shortly.NOTE: this base is very beautiful (candy apple red), but the pick guard is really a medium-dark gray than black. It's not a huge deal, but I do wish it was black. It's nowhere close to the black color of the pickups.

Very nice bass!

I highly recommend this bass to everyone..Whether you're a beginner or pro just looking for a spare this is a great choice. Definitely worth twice the price. It sounds and plays great, i especially like the neck feel. I was able to get it setup very comfortably and it stays in tune without issue. All in all you i don't think this bass can be beat for under $500... at $200 it's a steal. Very nicely done squire, this bass has changed my opinion of "squire quality"

squire jaguar bass

I have a 72 Pbass, it's a monster with incredible tone, and now into my arthritus years my reach is getting iffy. I have been in blues bands where I would raise a rukus if I tried to play my framus or my vox or eb! But my band days are gone and studio days are here and this bass is fantastic. The easiest to play next to my framus. quality is perfect. this fender design, German Engineering and Indonesia (cort) factory and great tone out of that agathis wood. so my cort and greg bennet go to goodwill. and I'm still working up my bullet strat, new tuners and maybe my EMG setup and I'll see??
