I was shocked to open box to find the most bowed neck ive ever seen,it was possible it was a bit warped at the top too.nut was cut way too high. pickup was flat and distorted. i checked battery and it was not that. finish was perfect,frets seem great. hardware of superior quality compared to more exspensive instruments. first dud ive ever got from squier. i would still try one if i were you, this one was not the norm for squier.

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Bass Guitar Special Humbucker:

    I was very surprised when I played this Squire bass for the first time. Finish was perfect. Active electronics were solid and sounded great. Neck was perfect. Only slightly adjusted truss rod, tuned up and it was ready to play. I would have no problem playing this guitar live on stage.

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Bass Guitar Special Humbucker:

    I ordered this because I played my son's Jaguar Short Scale and was impressed with the tone I got from a relatively cheap kid's bass. I found a great deal on a scratch 'n dent version of this and ordered it to give it a shot. I liked the idea of the 3-band EQ as most bases in this price just have a single tone control which is limited. Once received, I was not impressed with the tone. The EQ did dramatically boost and cut the low, mid and high but the tonal quality was just not good at all. The best sound was actually achieved with all EQ knobs set to straight up, or flat which is no EQ effect. The sound is surprisingly powerful and boosting the bass really adds a ton of low end, but it's dirty. Boosting the mid really adds the growly distortion to the sound. If a dirty, growly sound is what you're after, or if you play heavy stuff with a pick, then this might be the bass for you. If you like a classic sound, or a clean low end, then look elsewhere. This thing ain't got it.
    The build quality seemed good and I liked the satin finished neck.
    I believe the pickup and electronics are just really cheap and did not come together well, unless you like distortion.

          Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Bass Guitar Special Humbucker:

          The 9V battery powered active pickup was a shock to me. Did not see that in the ad. This sucker is loud at only half volume and clean and clear. Is it hard on batteries? I forgot to unplug the guitar cord last Saturday. Four days later I noticed. My bad. The factory supplied cheap carbon battery still played. The three way tone control let me adjust the volumes of each string to my liking. The factory string action was set to high for me. Luckily the wrench to adjust it was included. The string length settings were very close. At the 12th fret she was just a touch sharp so I still made the bridges about an 1/8 turn longer. Once you play it, you are going to realize she deserves a hard shell case. Mine will not be here until January as they sold out.

                I wanted to surprise my daughter for her 13th birthday. She had wanted a bass for some time. Found a great price, but after receiving and opening, found an 'abused' looking bass. Pick guard was severely scratched and there was a dent/chip (with exposed wood) on back. Box was not damaged, product said it had been inspected... daughter will have to wait for exchange to be shipped and not receive in time for her birthday.

                        I'm really like the light weight. Have several basses most are to heavy for gigging. The bass is great but the pickup placement makes it hard to get a deep sound. I still really like this vintage look.
