Tap Into the Jag Mystique - Affordably

The Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar solidbody electric guitar gives you an authentically styled Jag with all the trimmings at an amazing price. You'll love this guitar's comfortable and lightweight offset-waist body, easy-playing 24" scale, dual-circuit switching and controls, floating vibrato bridge, and eye-catching classic finish. Squier has armed the Vintage Modified Jaguar with a pair of Duncan Designed pickups that ring out with immense, chiming tone... but they can still get nasty when you push 'em. The Jaguar has long enjoyed a cult-like status in Fender's lineup; now you can affordably tap into that mystique with the Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar.

Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • You'll enjoy taking the stage or doing session work with this axe
  • Tone and playability collide in this vintage-inspired hot rod
  • Squier's Vintage Modified series: hot mods of classic Fenders
You'll enjoy taking the stage or doing session work with this axe

When you take the stage with the Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar, you're in for a real treat. With its offset-waist body and colorful vintage finish, this axe gives your fans something eye-popping to look at. It also sounds stunning, thanks to a pair of Duncan Designed Jaguar pickups that serve up a broad range of immense tone. This Jag's sound is enhanced by a basswood body, while the lightweight, offset design makes short work of your marathon gigs. Don't think of this Jag as a stage-only axe. Those very same sonic and ergonomic qualities also make the Vintage Modified Jaguar ideal for spicing up your recordings with scrumptious, unique 6-string textures.

Tone and playability collide in this vintage-inspired hot rod

Speaking of tone, Squier has spec'd their Vintage Modified Jaguar with a pair of Duncan Designed Jaguar single-coils, routed through the unique Jaguar switching system which includes comprehensive preset controls over two distinct circuits. It produces a superb array of tone colors; you'll love this Jag as a lead instrument. First off, bending strings on this baby is effortless. Also, the Jaguar's distinctive slinkiness is facilitated by a 24" scale which is noticeably shorter than the Strat's 25.5" scale. Add 6105 frets and a 9.5" radius rosewood fingerboard and you'll soon discover lead-playing abilities you never knew you had. Radical when it was introduced, the Jag's offset-waist body design fits like a glove whether you're seated or standing.

Squier's Vintage Modified series: hot mods of classic Fenders

Squier has tapped into something really cool with their Vintage Modified series: hot mods of classic Fenders sporting top-shelf materials, components, and primo fit-and-finish. If you're a guitarist or bassist, then you'll likely agree that vintage Fender guitars and basses are heavily lusted-after items, so it's great that Fender has set their Squier subsidiary free to create hot-rodded and affordable versions of the classics.

Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Lightweight basswood offset-waist body and short scale length give you enhanced playability
  • Comfortable Vintage Modified C-profile maple neck; 9.5" radius rosewood fingerboard
  • Medium-jumbo frets; 24" scale length; 1.65" nut width
  • Chrome hardware; vintage-style tuning keys
  • Adjustable chrome bridge; vintage-style non-locking floating vibrato
The Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar: legendary vibe, sound, and playability!

Easy on the eyes, Easy to play!

As a novice acoustic player buying my first electric guitar, I researched the heck out of every every "make and model" out there, and this one landed on the short list. I then talked my Sweetwater rep's (Ashton Vaudt) ear off, while he patiently answered question after question. Now I'm sitting in my little office with the 'Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar - 3-color Sunburst' in hand and am so thrilled! I admit I'm shallow and just love how this guitar looks and feels. I plugged into my little Roland Cube amp, and I may not leave the room all weekend - way too much fun! Beyond-excellent customer service and the very thoughtfully-written reviews are two reasons I keep coming back to Sweetwater. (Thanks, Ashton!)

my favorite guitar out of the other 9 I have

Let me start of with it is simply a beautiful guitar, the finish is wonderful and the hardware looks stunning . great sounds out of the pick ups and i do know alot of people complain about the bridge that these jags come with. I personally have not had a problem with it . another great thing about this guitar is that the neck is glossed smooth , perfect for people who like thin fast necks.

Fender Squire Vintage Modified Jaguar

Absolutely a beautiful Fender Squire V/M Jaguar electric guitar. Pretty Basswood 3 color Sunburst. The fretboard is so smooth and easy to play. Really great design, great sounding...cool looking switch areas. Just a well made instrument. Duncan pickups. A 24 inch scale with floating vibrato bridge. Maple neck with Rosewood fretboard. Cool surf guitar and awesome additional colors. Sweetwater has done a great job going over the guitar with their 55 point inspection. The Jaguar was set up perfect and ready to play when you receive it. Extremely fast delivery and good warranty from Sweetwater. My tech and sales representatives are some of the best. Great service period. Wonderful price and selection. Sweetwater will email you pictures of the exact guitar you ordered. Really well done with the Jaguar and service. Just a fun electric guitar. Some change the bridge..but I have had no issues or problems....I wanted it just the way I received it. Very cool. Thanks again Sweetwater!!!

A 'true' Jaguar in almost every way . . .

I received the Squire VM Jaguar in 3-tone sunburst today and was amazed. This guitar is 'true' to the Fender Jaguars that were made in the early 60's which means you inherit the infamous bridge and related string buzz issues. I absolutely love it (warts and all) and will not be switching any parts out on this instrument. This guitar looks, and feels, and sounds fantastic. The finish is flawless and absolutely gorgeous. The guitar matches up perfectly with my new Fender Champion 40 Amp and I'm able to replicate that true "surf" sound of the 60's. Great job Squier and Sweetwater in delivering a great product.

Amazing value

I received my Squire VM Jaguar in perfect condition. Nothing cheap about this guitar as the price might suggest. Beautiful sunburst finish and nice wood. Hardware is great quality. Plays perfectly right out of the box. Is it as good as my $1300.00 American Stratocaster? Almost. With better electronics it would be but c'mon, this is a $300.00 guitar and worth every penny. I put a locking trem and chrome bridge cover on it and it is just like it's Fender brother. 100% happy. Thanks Matt.
