I play mostly Fender basses, as far as feel goes, yep its a Fender. The quality compared to a Fender is almost the same. Of course they are going to use some cheaper parts to keep the price down but everything on this bass can upgraded to your liking with Fender parts down the road if it bothers you but its not necessary. For half the price of a Standard Fender Jazz I honestly say that this bass is a steal.
This bass has a C shaped neck not to be confused with a Modern C shaped neck like on the Standard Jazz bass. The only way to describe the difference is the the C shaped is a little more chunkier (front to back) compared to a Modern C which is a bit thinner (front to back). They are both very comfortable to play just slightly different.
The pickups sound great, you really can dial in any tone. Love the P/J configuration. They stay very true to the Fender sound and its basiclly like having 2 basses with you.
The action right of the box was slightly higher than my prefrence. Lowered the strings slightly and it was good to go.
I would highly recommend checking this bass out for every type of player, beginners, intermediate and pro musicians. I honestly can say that this bass great and consider it a steal. It will surprise you.

This is a beautiful bass.
It's only weak spot it the concentric volume and tone controls.
They must be replaced with CTS pots.
They are availble, and some places on the net offer the plate with conrtols wired you just solder in the pickups. They use CTS pots which I think are American. This is a beatiful rendition of a Fender. The Duncan pickups are superb especially the precission pickup an the front. Now you can get bassier and you have that bright nasty Jazz pick up in the back.
All adjustable adjustments were made with ease and accuracy. And the overall feel is a bouncy, nick bounce back Fender Bass feed. A great bass for the money, just change the volume and tone control to American CTS. That should tighten her up for a long time and get a polish cloth and gig bag to make her last. IT takes about 3 or 4 months before the pots go bad. I sent the first one back, now I have another and it's the same thing, i also have a black one which I don't play to often.

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass:

      I own the Olympic White. This is by far one of my favorite basses. I have owned it for more than 6 months now. It has the important characteristic I look for in a bass, playability, tone, quality and looks. I own several Fender and Ibanez basses and this one is on the top of my list for giging. If you are looking for the P tone with the comfort of a J neck this is the one for you. It cuts through the mix real nice. The neck plays quick and smooth. Like I said in my previous review this bass comes with a C shaped neck (A tiny bit thicker front to back), slightly diferent than the modern C neck which is a little bit thinner. Its very comfortable to play. They both have the same width at the nut at 1.5 inches. The fret spacing seems a little bit closer together than my fender jazz which makes reaching a little bit easier. The tone on this thing is killer, love the pickups, they are hot!!!!!! The quality on this bass is far better than I expected, it stays in tune with no problems at all. To be honest I bought this as a beater bass but ended up liking it so much that I treat it as a prized possession. If you are in the market for for a new bass look no further. Dont let the Squier on the headstock scare you away. This is definitly one to add to your arsenal. Pure Fender sound and playibility. If something was to happen to this guitar it would be replaced immediatly.

        Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass:

        I picked up mine on sale from MF two years ago and played it for a while. Then I dressed the fret wires, put on a set of Jamersons and dropped the action. Oh ya, bought a can of shoe polish to tint the maple part of the neck and head. With the heavy gauge strings truss adjustment is a requirement.
        This thing is fat and fast. It has a versitile tonal range that can sit in just about any mix. I've tried going to my other basses but can't seem to get away from this one. It has never let me down on or off stage (has the passive pups).
        I own the black. Although if I replaced it would probably get the sunburst.
        When compared to others in it's price range I would have missed out if I chose anything else. \,,/>.<\,,/

        Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass:

        The Vintage Modified and Classic Vibe series have brought Squier out of the muck, and are on par with any mid-range level instruments. This bass has more versatility than a Jazz bass, the controls are great (the notched tone pots are great in that they don't move too easily), and the Duncan Designed pickups get so close to the actual Duncan sound, and have more character than Fender's stock pickups found on American Standard basses. The tone is nice and punchy when needed, and full like a Jazz Bass without being so nasally. This is actually the first passive PJ configuration bass I've played where the P pickup didn't sound dead when soloed. This bass is great for pick style, and better for slapping than a P-Bass (I omit standard fingerstyle, as any bass works great for standard fingerstyle IMO). The body finish is flawless (you can't really blame Squier for damage caused by delivery), and the tortoise-shell pickguard looks great on the black. The pickguard seems a little thinner than the ones on the American Fenders, like it's missing a layer, on the side, I can see the brown layer, a whit layer, but no darker layer under that, but should be better than the single ply that are used on the Vintage Reissue Fenders. The only issue I have is that the finish on the back of the neck seems thin, but that can be expected on any instrument made overseas these days. The bridge and hardware could be better, but I'd say the same for Fender Standard (MIM), and some American Fenders. Even if you drop $200 in mods, you have a spectacular bass for less than the Fender standards. It would be nice if the body were alder, but the agathis is rather close in tone, resonates well, and is lighter.This bass is the cheapest bass I've ever bought, I mainly play Fender modded P-Basses (American and Mexican). This bass will definitely get some use on stage. Don't let the "Squier" on the headstock fool you. The sound, feel, playability, and retro look make it WAY more than a Christmas bass.

        Amazing bass at a great price

        By Timothy horn

        from Texas

        Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass:

        Considering the next best bass is over $400, this is an amazing value. Could not be happier.
        I was really impressed with this. I have a Squier Cyclone that I got in 2002 that I'm reasonably satisfied with, but this is amazing. My friend has a Fender Jag Bass that's easily 500 dollars more, and they feel exactly the same. The only difference from the Fender is that he has more knobs and switches, whereas this only has 2 sets of knobs, and each set of pickups has it's own volume and tone knob (a really interesting and cool design). My first time playing was live and it was great. Bought it used from MF and other than not coming in the original box it was in almost pristine condition.

        Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass:

        I usually don't rate things before I own them, but this thing is just light years beyond my expectations. I was originally planning on upgrading my Ibanez GSR200 to play jazz with. I had a gig coming up with a group that does vesper services in my community. I was seeking advice on how to upgrade when someone insisted to me that I go to Guitar Center first and try out at least one of the Squier basses. This is the one I picked up, mostly because I was interested in a P-J bass, but wow, for $100 more, is it ever better than the Ibanez! The feel and the heft of it is great. The bridge is just worlds better. The Duncan Designed pickups sound clear and punchy, as well as being noise free. The action is fast and playable. The jazz bridge can be made to sound so bright and punchy it's phenominal. The precision neck is a lot smoother for that style. The tone knobs let you add in a little more subdued smoothness to either pickup. For $300, it's just phenominal. And this is all just plugging straight into an Acoustic mini-stack. No pre-amps or fancy pedals, just pure tone. So needless to say, this bass is what I'm going to be picking up to play vesper services with. It's perfect for that type of playing. My Schecter is probably still going to win if I get back into a grunge/alt/hardrock band. But for a jazz bass or any punchy alt rock stuff, this Jaguar Mod Bass is almost unbeatable.
        Would have liked and active EQ, but otherwise great features. The two tone knobs do a pretty good job by themselves.
        Surprisingly good!
        Outstanding!

          Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass:

          For the 6 years of playing, cleaning, and maintaining guitars, I decided to get a bass to learn the role of the instrument and further my musicianship. So, I knew previously that the Vintage Modified series of guitars were excellent for the most part. So, I went to my local GC and played the Vintage modified Jaguar bass, that I now own. At this point, I've owned it for about 2 months. Since then, I've buffed out the frets with fine steel wool and put Flatwounds on it. After playing the bass for 2 months and getting to know it, I ready to evaluate it.

          The build and craftsmanship is excellent for the most part; of course, there are some small, subtle flaws, but not anything that hinders the playing. As far as playability goes, it's superb. The neck is a thinner c-shape neck. Not extremely thin, it still has a nice roundness to it, just smaller like a proper Jazz bass neck. The bass sounds great. It's pickups aren't the best, but they get job done well. The split coil has a solid, meaty Precision tone. The electronics are okay- not anything spectacular. I like the idea of concentric volume and tone knobs, but they have a cheaper turning feel to them. There's going to be some cheaper parts here or there for the money. Other than that, this bass has a very solid feel and sound to it. It will last a very long time, to say the least. It's been a great investment so far.

            I have been playing guitar and bass for almost 30 years and I have played some high dollar guitars. Dont expect this guitar to play like a 1500 dollar Fender, but, for the money, I would highly recommend it. Right out of the box you can just tune it up and your ready to go, if thats what you like, but I'd prefer to take it to your local guitar shop and have it set up the way you like. The action may be a little high for your liking or whatever. I bought this to jam with our church band, the sound this bass has fits right in to the modern gospel we play. I DID recommend this to a friend!!!

            Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass:

            whether you need another or buying one for a kid or student you HAVE to buy this bass. its amazing and once you get used to the controls and knob setup the possibilities are endless and there are no limits.
            the features are beautiful. from the block inlays of pearl to the matching headstock it is just gorgeous.
            the quality of this bass is just awesome and sounds just as beautiful as it looks. for a couple hundred bucks this beast is surely a beauty as well. i've had this thing for just two days as an early chrismas and i already like it as much as my '70s fender jazz. this bass can do literally everything. my fender is my heart and soul and i can pull off just about anything with it from rock to the funky stuff but i got this thing out and got used to all the knobs and just let loose on it and i have been blown away by the sheer awesomeness. the bright funky highs are just tops. its great. and the low down p-bass pickup is just sexy. i got a piece of foam *not styrofoam* but soft black foam that came with my window a/c and put a piece snug against the bridge under the strings and is swear to you the warmth and clarity is amazing and it reminds me of the double bass i used to play in highschool. but now when you just roll back the pbass pickup and turn up the bridge pickup and boost the highs with the convienient stacked tone knobs and that beast of a bass is unstoppable when it comes to slap funk and jazzzz.

            but of course theres gotta be a downside... and that is the neck is a tad too heavy. it wont set up at the angle im used to and thats why i gave it a nine but once you get past that its truely a good buy.
            i was skeptical about it being a squier but i was needing a second bass because of the different tunings used in my band but when i got it and have now fell in love with it, it has opened up a whole new demension of playability because of the versitality of this instrument. i bought it as like a secondary or back-up bass but now im thinking i just have two really great basses. im extremely glad i got this thing. its amazing.

              I bought a used Olympic White (basically store demo) because it was the only way to get that colour in the UK. It looks amazing and is genuinely more than the sum of it's parts. It really feels, plays and sounds like a much more expensive bass. Build quality is very good. Neck is very comfortable. Balance is 'spot on' for my stance. Pick Ups sound great and blow standard pups away.
              The shipping, tax and import charges I paid to get this instrument to the UK added a considerable (some would say 'irrational', wouldn't they dear...) premium to the overall cost but I can honestly say it was worth every penny and more! 3 weeks in and it's still awesome.

              I've been playing guitar and bass for quite a good while, and this thing rocks! I had a friend who had the Squier jazz bass, and i loved to play. I always preferred the jag style body,so i picked up this beauty. The tone is great, and the body is nice and light. Their is a bit of fret buzz on some of the upper frets, but that can be fixed. The sunburst looks a million times better than in the pictures, so don't let it trick you. Overall, this thing is one of the best basses you will find for less than $700, so don't hesitate!

              Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass:

              Have one year now since I retire from play in clubs. I sale all my basses. Had a G&L, Musicman SUB, some Fenders, two Warwicks and some Ibanez. I reacently start to play again in my Church and want to have something different. Something that I don't brake my wallet and sound and looks different and cover lot of style without need to switch basses. I tryed some $500 basses and didn't find it. Looks some great reviews for this one and decided to try it. First, looks better when you have in your hands. Jazz neck is confortable to play, not like my Musicman and my old Ibanez ATK that are great basses but hurt my hands when I used to play long hours even when I use extremelly low action.Second, pickups are great. I used to change all my Pasive Fenders' pickups for D'Marzio but I don't see why I have to do this with my Jaguar bass. This Duncan Desing pickups are great and very versatile. You can dial a nice jazz bass sound when both pickups are open with the tone controls in the half, plus you have the nice and famous growl Pbass sound. With a little patience you can dial a nice punchy mid sound like Flea of Red Hot Chilli Peppers with the bridge pickup too. You will need to sit down some hours with the bass to really dial those sounds specially if you usually like to play active basses(like me) but believe me, you can find almost every sound with this bass.My only complain about this bass is the uggly vintage bridge. I don't understand why Fender and Squier continue to put this crappy piece of bridge like trash in this ecxellent instruments. I replaced it with a Gotoh 201 bridge and now looks better and have a huge sustain. Off course you have to set up this bass for your taste.(neck, entonation and action)If you like to show the brand of your instruments and lke to broke your wallet you can point in other basses. If you just like to play music and sound fantastic like me and safe money, this is the bass for you.

              I bought this bass because at the time I didn't have a ton of money, and wanted something different. I was very very pleased with the bass overall. The original sound I got out of it wasn't disapointing at all. I replaced the pickups with soem quater pounders and now I would easily choose this bass over my more expensive Ibanez or even my Fender.
              I like all the different sounds and tones I can get with this bass because of all the tone controls.
              For the price, I was pleased
              For the price it blew me my expectations out of the water.

              Squire quality and their new designs are really good basses for the price. you have ease to high frets due the body design a little neck heavy though. the neck is worth the price of the bass alone. each pickup has stacked volume and tone for each kinda cool and retro as well. the block inlays and headstock are done well. I have American and custom shop and Mexican mades there is absolutely nothing wrong with Squire.

              (I am throwing all three of the categories into this one.)

              The body of this Squier Jaguar bass is a lot lighter-weight than it would appear. The neck is almost heavier than the body, but overall the instrument is well-balanced. For someone with scoliosis or who's not so burly, lighter weight is a benefit. The materials used in this bass are not top-quality, but that's why it's so inexpensive. For my purposes, as a guitarist needing a bass for recording, this instrument fits the bill. The contours of the bass's body conform to mine such that its playing position is ideal for picking with either a pick or fingers. The humbucker pickup with active circuitry is more than sufficient for recording; it makes me want to play bass, live, in a band, again, to do it justice. I could see how a professional bassist might keep the Squier Jaguar bass on hand for back-up or for playing under hazardous conditions (as some live-music venues can be).

              The neck, after adjusting it (to be expected to do with a mail-order guitar or bass), is quite comfortable; the only comparison with the ease of playing is with that of a Fender Telecaster bass I'd owned a long time ago. However, since this bass had been inexpensively constructed, the ends of the frets require filing to bevels, so that they not bloody the lower section of the index finger of my left hand. The shorter scale of the Jaguar's neck, however, eases the transition from guitar to bass.

              Yes - "for the price," and all that - definitely. My purchasing this bass (used) only made me feel as though I'd ripped someone off. I almost wish that I were more of a bassist to befit such an instrument so nice despite its faults. I expect that this instrument will make a bassist out of me, yet.

              Eight, not ten, stars because the ends of the frets need work on my part.

              I just started playing bass this summer (adding it to my drumming hobby) and bought this bass in August. I love it! While I don't have lots of experience with a variety of other basses, I have had other bassists with that type of experience play it and they tell me that this is a very nice bass.

              This bass is great. you can really dial in almost any sound you want, especially for slap playing. it is alittle neck heavy but went away as soon as i put a 3 inch strap on. has fret buzz around the 17th fret on the A and D strings but the notes can still be heard easily. overall this is deffinately the bas bass i have played in this price range and i searched around alot before i got this one.
              I got the olympic white and the finish on this bass is amazing. very shiny, i love it

              Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass:

              I own the Vintage Modified 70's Jazz (the natural finish, all-maple one with the black fretboard inlays), and that is a phenomenal bass. When I saw Squier had expanded the VM series with this Jaguar, I had to try it. Played one yesterday, and all I can say is "wow". Once again, Squier has knocked it out of the park. The pickups are the Duncan Designed a la my Jazz (but in a P-J setup), sound wonderful, and can generate a huge array of tones. The body is obviously extremely rock-and-roll. But the neck is the thing on this - silky smooth, very fast, and the rosewood fretboard feels amazing. At $299, this thing is just as much of a bargain as the 70's Jazz. I've played bass for 27 years, and owned some really expensive basses, but this Jag is as good as anything available, and at this price is a complete steal.

              I like this bass, looks cool, has a nice mellow tone to it. i've just played it and I would totally buy it. Squire is stepping things up a notch and these Vintage Models are getting better and better. I personally like the 77' Jazz Bass copy, amazing for a squire, but my Fender triumphs obviously, but I would totally recommend this bass to anyone who wants to learn, totally beats an Ibanez,
