The Jazzmaster is all about great tone, playability, and individuality

The Squier Vintage Modified Jazzmaster has a colorful back story. By the late '50s, Leo Fender had some new tricks up his sleeve, and a number of design refinements were infused into the Jazzmaster when it was introduced as an upscale alternative to the Strat and Tele in 1958. The Jazzmaster featured a radical-for-the-time (but incredibly comfortable) contoured offset-waist body, dual lead and rhythm circuits, and single-coil pickups that produced richer, warmer sound than its stablemates. The Jazzmaster was originally aimed at, you guessed it, jazz guitarists, but it found a home in the burgeoning Surf Music scene of the early '60s. Today, the Jazzmaster is celebrated as one of the two "alternative" Fenders (the short-scale Jaguar being the other) and is making music in the hands of artists as diverse as Elvis Costello, J. Mascis, and Thurston Moore.

Duncan Designed pickups give this axe a range of tasty tones

Squier's Vintage Modified Jazzmaster is packin' heat in the form of two Duncan Designed JM-101 single-coil Jazzmaster pickups that serve up everything from glassy cleans to jangly crunch. These pups are armed with with Alnico V magnets (same as classic vintage pickups), which give them the warmth, clarity, and punch to compete with your drummer. (If you're in a band, you know exactly what we're talking about!) This pair is voiced in accordance with your tonal needs: a vintage-toned neck pickup and a higher-output bridge pickup. When you crank your amp, you get a gamut of tasty tones, from chimey jangle to aggressive crunch. And thanks to the Jazzmaster's dual-circuit switching, you can preset your lead and rhythm tones and select them at the flick of a switch.

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 Jazzmaster Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:

  • Lightweight basswood offset body, slightly reduced scale length and nut width enhance playability

  • Comfortable vintage-modified, C-profile maple neck with 9.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard
  • 21 medium-jumbo frets, 25.5" 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 Jazzmaster: legendary vibe, sound, and playability!

Great guitar for $300!

I am very impressed with this guitar. I was having issues with it buzzing pretty good, even after getting it set up by a friend. I took it to a really good Luthier in Ft. Worth, and he did a fret dress, changed the angle of the neck a bit, and did a full set up. This guitar now plays like a champ. I plan on upgrading the bridge to a Mastery, because the strings tend to pop out of the grooves if you play hard.
Music background: 11 years playing exp, mainly P&W/Ambient styles.

Candy Apple Christmas present!

I must first complement Sweetwater for their excellent customer service. The guitar arrived in perfect condition, well packaged, and had been given a good basic set-up. I played it for a while to ensure everything was working properly, then decided to set the guitar up to my liking.The frets were nice and level, so I took some relief out of the neck, and lowered the bridge a little...this guitar dialed in perfectly, with no adjustments needed to the nut, no high frets, no problems whatsoever!I build guitars, and must admit that in this price range, I cannot compete! If you are looking for a good guitar for a starting player, or a gigging guitar that you don't have to fuss over...here it is!Why not a "5"? Electronics...the switches are not top of the line, some scratchiness, and a tendency not to connect sometimes...I'll investigate during the first string change.Tone and sonic versatility are adequate in this design...it takes premium wood, and high-quality electronics to go beyond what Fender has done with this guitar, which is an amazing value in this price range.
