      Overall is a good bass but like I said before, not too good for slaping and popping for my taste because sound a little muddy.
      Give 8 in features because I will continue to make critic that the vintage bridge of some kind of fenders and squier is trash. Pure trash. Other inenspensive basses like Rogues and Peaveys came with better bridge and in some cases with the string thru body feature that add a lot of sustain. I replaced the bridge with a Gotoh the same day I opened the box. Now look better and have huge sustain. Other than that the bass looks good.
      Came with the pickup a little bit twisted (I don't know why but I fixed) and I find that the acction was high for my taste. Changed the strings for a D'Addario Pro Steel and now sound better with the adition of the new bridge and some settings. Paint job is good and the neck feels fantastic. Electronic is great but please read carefuly this: I owned in the past more than 25 basses because I buy, fix, sell so I know what is a good and versatile bass. This bass have a fantastic sound. It remind me my old Ernie Ball SUB musicman. Lot of treble and very punchy sound for fingerin. But carefull because this bass doesn't sound too good for slap. With some good setting in your amp it can sound much better. Maybe, but is hard to find that clasic sound for slap and pop. The best way that I can describe the sound of this bass is like a John Taylor of Duran Duran sound. If you are planing to buy this bass, take time to check some of the Duran Duran old music like Rio and Girls on Film. In some parts of those songs you will here the slap sound of his Aria Pro bass. That is the sound that you will get from this bass. For me is OK but maybe I will change the pickup for a pickup that can change from paralell to series mode and can fix the sound for slap but for the moment It makes the job.
      For $199 is a good chance especialy for those who love the fingerin sound of Duran Duran and some Red Hot Chili Peppers songs especially in the "Californication" record sound.

      Someone said they got a dud, well I got the bomb!! Again, Musicians Friend has shown why they are the best in the business. A buck & a half for the Candy Apple Red? Robbery!! This bass is a tone, sound & slap monster. It's a Fender with Squire written on it. The finish is flawless. Active electronics are loud & very adjustable. Even the strings are good. I had zero fret buzz. Had to adjust action & intonation. Out of the box electric guitars have to be set up. I've never bought one that didn't. I Love this Bass & Musicians Friend!!

      My dad bought this bass in guitar center and i totally love it the only prob with this is the action is too high and some fret buzz.. But its not a big deal for me since i know how fix the truss rod more on that i'm not really satisfied with their new featured humpbucker pickups so i change it to EMG electronics and now to be honest i want to sell my fender jazz bazz because i wanted to buy another jaguar bass :3

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

            I have had this bass for little over half a year now, and there's not much that I can say bad about it. I traded my 1997 Fender J-Bass for it at Sam Ash, after I had done some modifications to it, and I haven't regretted a moment of it. I do intend to replace the electronics eventually, just for my benefit, but it's not like I got it and was thinking they absolutely had to be changed. The weight of this bass in my opinion is another plus side. I'm pretty sure it weighs less than the case I have for it does, so it doesn't kill your shoulder after a long time of playing. I will also be changing the bridge on this bass, but once again, not because I feel like I have to, just want to. All in all, I'm pleasantly pleased with this bass and am glad I got it. I use it most weeks at church through a big sound system and it holds it's own among the higher quality instruments in the band.

              I thought going from my 68 Fender Precision to this new Jaguar was going to be a let down WRONG easy to play doesn't need extensive adjustment Pick up is hot and offers a variety of Tones, easier to scale than my 68 Chromatics' neck also but I have small hands so this is a great change.

              A quick fretboard and active electronics make the Jaguar hb a must have tool for anyone looking for a cheap all purpose bass. Sustain is decent for live but needs a compressor/sustainer when recording.

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

                I actually bought this bass from my local music store. I know the owner of the store pretty well so he gave me the same price as Musician's Friend. He ordered this bass straight from the Fender Dealership catalog so I don't have any experience with the same bass from Musician's Friend. However, I will say that I am blown away by this bass. I have the silver colored one and the finish was spot on. No chips, blemishes, or any imperfections. It has a three piece, polyurethane finished neck that lets you slide with ease. The neck is thin so you can stretch your hand very easily. It has great tone and stays in tune for a long time. (Not an excuse to not tune it before each show!) The electronics on the bass are good but like most "low end" basses, it doesn't have the most superior electronics. You'll have to buy and install those separate. Give the bass a try, you won't regret it, more than likely. It's all your money's worth and more.

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

                This bass right out of the box was worth the small pricetag. The pickup lacks a little low end pop, but gives the funky bass twang I wanted. Being as close to the bridge as the pickup is, I expected worse. As others said, it needed a lot of setup so if you are not comfortable doing this, find a shop to set it up or buy from a store that does it for you. My only complaints are fret buzz and sharp fret wire. I was able to file the wire edges and tweak the neck and action and resolve the problems. I have since added a second DiMarzio DP120 pickup by the neck with a blender pot so the two pickups are going into the active electronics, and this gives options to get what ever bass sound I want. Would have given it five stars if not for the fret wire, but I am thinking of buying another for my Son's band to have as a spare, The bassist sometimes doesn't know in advance when he is in town.

                Definitely a Kiler Bass for the price! Had a few finish flaws and was in need of setup(like most inexpensive instruments) but for the price I could live with them. With the active circuitry it would be extremely easy to add an EMG.

                I love this guitar. I like the sound, the look, everything. It's not heavy at all, which is great for females with little arm strength like me. However, the frets are pretty huge, which makes skipping around quickly a little difficult if you have tiny fingers.
                I think this guitar is great for the price--she looks classy, feels great, sounds lovely, and isn't difficult to play.
