“This, the Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass, is one...”

Written on: 29/05/2008 by chafinlw (1 review written)

Good Points
Absolutely gorgeous finish - the butterscotch colored varnish over alder(?) is really nice. Love the fret markers. I'm no expert, but the sound strikes me as a really nice vintage one.

Bad Points
Haven't found any yet, although I'd say the action comes higher than I prefer, but that's why they give you the Allen wrench for the saddles, isn't it? The tuning machines are nothing to write home about visually, but they do stay in tune pretty well.

General Comments
This, the Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass, is one very nice looking, nice playing bass. It's my first foray into bass guitars - from classic rock lead, and I am very pleased. Between my kid and I we have 8 electrics, including Fenders, Squiers, Epiphones, Peaveys and a B.C. Rich. This is every bit as nice in workmanship and playability as any of them. I've played a Fender HWY 1 Jazz Bass since I got this, and while there is a difference between the output of the pickups on the two, it isn't particularly great, and certainly not worth the roughly $550 difference in price.
