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 chimey tone, and can 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're in for a treat when you take the stage or do session work with this axe
  • Tone, playability, and visuals collide in this vintage-inspired hotrod
  • Squier's Vintage Modified series: hot mods of classic Fenders
You're in for a treat when you take the stage or do 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 not only 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, from crystal cleans, to gritty grind. This Jag's sound is enhanced by its basswood body, while the lightweight, offset design makes short work of your marathon gigs. But 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 your recordings with scrumptious, unique six-string textures.

Tone and playability collide in this vintage-inspired hotrod

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 control over two distinct circuits. This produces a superb array of tone colors from crisp and clear to warm and chunky. You'll appreciate this Jag as a lead instrument. First off, bending strings on this baby is effortless. The Jaguar's distinctive slinkiness is facilitated by a 24" scale - noticeably shorter than the Strat's 25.5 inches - and even a tad shorter than the Les Paul's. Add to this 6105 frets and a 9.5" radius rosewood fingerboard, and you'll soon discover lead-playing abilities you never knew you had. Comfort? The Jag's offset-waist body design - radical when it was introduced - fits like a glove, whether you're seated or standing.

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

Squier's tapped into something really cool with their Vintage Modified series - hot mods of classic Fenders, all sporting top-shelf materials and components, with primo fit-and-finish. If you're a guitarist or bassist, you'll likely agree that vintage Fender guitars and basses are heavily lusted-after items, so it's great that Fender, in their infinite wisdom, have 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 body and short scale length give you enhanced playability
  • Comfortable Vintage Modified C-profile maple neck with 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!

Nice Guitar!

I've Had This Vintage Modified Jaguar Now For 2 Months And It Plays And Sounds Great. I Was Blown Away By The Candy Apple Red Color Really Looks Good. I Play It Thru My Fender Mustang ll Amp And I Get That Surf Ventures Sound. With All The Switches On It You Get At Least 9 Different Sounds. I've Been Playing For 45 Years And I Plan On Keeping This One. Nice Guitar.

Surf is Up

Fender has done it this time fantastic guitar little tip for you boys who have Fenders with two channels Deluxe Reverb Twin Reverb you can reroute reverb Tank and get a soaking wet sound similar to a original 63 Reverb Unit you can use normal channel controls to set your depth and dwell of your reverb setting as I said this model as well as the Jazzmaster are Super guitars by from Sweetwater and you wont go wrong believe me

Squier V.M Jaguar

I've been playing guitar since the mid 80's and I think I've only owned one Squier. A Strat when I was in high school. For the most part I've owned MIM's and a couple Amercian Strats. (One Custom Shop) and one MIM Telecaster. I've had my eye on a Jaguar or Jazzmaster now for the past year. Really love the sound and the style. I picked up a few of the Squiers at Guitar Center, and surprisingly, Squier Jaguars seem to be a little better quality then most of the Squier Strats,..Tele's I've played. Anyway, I ordered a Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar in sea foam green. As soon as I took it our of the box I was totally surprised by what a solid instrument it was. The action and playability is great! The versatility is nice and the tone seems to be everything I need. I play through a Blues Deluxe and overall this thing sounds great. I totally have no regrets , although I don't see myself buying another Squier, I have to admit The Jaguar not only looks and feels good, but tone wise I was pleasantly surprised by it's quality . Stays in tune fairly well and I didn't even have to take it in for a set-up/adjustment... So, for $300... I have a fun, great sounding guitar~

quite nice

a really nice guitar for the money. some of the tone is not what I would like but I think do to the strings. Play a lot of Jazz and the rhythm side has a nice mellow sound for it. The lead side has a bit of a tinny sound to my ear, but again could be the strings. It seems to be well made and would make a great gig guitar so you can leave the expensive ones at home. For the price, can't beat this one.
