    I bought the Squier VM Jaguar Bass Special for 3 reasons:1) VERY affordable.2) Pickup combination and boost circuit (active).3) Transparent red finish and Jaguar body (my wife ... read more [+]picked it out for me).I was very pleased by the condition of the bass right out of the box. I liked the fit and finish very much, and the bass is very light (the lightest of 8 basses I currently own). No damage or quality issues to report.Right from the box, the setup was playable but not to my liking. I had to lower the action and intonate it; I replaced the stock strings with DR High Beams, and WOW! This bass plays and sounds incredible and can be adjusted to sound like either a P bass, J bass or an awesome combination of both. Add some boost from the active circuitry and the bottom end fills out very nicely even with medium/light gauge strings.I'm not happy with 2 things about this bass though:1) The balance is not great - the bass is a little headstock heavy and will drop if I let go the neck.2) The active boost works great on the E and A strings, but thins out on the D and G strings.Overall this is a great bass for the money. Quality and sound are above average for a bass this affordable, it sounds and plays excellently; plenty of presence and tone. Hats off to Squier again for another quality bass guitar. Worth the money - check it out!

    Great Idea gone wrong

    The first bass had flaws in the finish and the second was assembled poorly. The action on both was very high and bridge was mounted way out of center.

        Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Bass Guitar Special:

        The primary difference between the Affinity series Squiers and Fenders and the various tiers above, is how much time has been spent on them. The electronics on the Affinities are significantly lesser as well, but if you have any inclination to do a little work on your instrument to improve it, or if you have the means to have it worked on, you can end up with a really nice guitar/bass for very little money, relatively speaking. In my experience just going over the guitar and tightening things up does a good deal. Filing and polishing the ends of the frets under the high string alone makes these feel like much more costly instruments. And of course you can upgrade parts as desired over time to defer the cost, and if you want the final product to be fairly nice, you still don't need to put a whole lot of money into upgrades. These are already a good deal just for the body and neck.

          Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Bass Guitar Special:

          While I bought my model used and it is slightly older, it is still a rock-solid bass. The first thing that caught my attention was the weight of this thing. My familiarity with Squier before this bass was their starter guitars, which feel extremely light and "cheaper", I suppose. This bass feels like a Fender. Body is incredibly solid and the neck feels amazing.

          Pickups allow a lot of versatility, never had any problems with the electronics. If you're looking for a solid bass on a budget, this is the one.

            What a deal. Bass feels really well made for the price, sounds very good with stock pickups so much so that I'm not so sure installing better quality would be worth it. Only thing that stands out are the knobs are kinda cheap feeling and the internal electronics, wires and solders are probably cheap. But that's a fair thing for such a great price.

              I greatly enjoy this bass simply because its a fun instrument to play. The neck is fast and has a good smooth action on it, It's a hybrid so you get the best of both worlds when you play it (P-bass/Jazz bass). I just need to remember to unplug it whenever I finish playing it so I don't kill the battery for the active pick-ups. Its a great go to bass and the price was a steal.

              Loved the 3-tone sunburst. The extra bass boost with the battery is magnificent! Make sure to disconnect the cable from the bass when not in use. This will kill the battery if left in. I would install a new, fresh battery before any gig. You wouldn't want it cutting out on a gig. Plan ahead. I always keep a few new extra 9-volt batteries in the bass case!

                Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Bass Guitar Special:

                i played one of these basses at a local music store and was very impressed with the feel, tone and quility of the instrument. so to avoid sales tax i order one from m.f. just got it delivered tonight. i was impressed with the looks of it right out of the box. i got the three tone sunburst and the finish is flawless. no wrinkles or blotches. the strings were loose, so i tuned it up and check the intonation at the 12TH fret and it was dead on. the sustain is incretable all the way down the neck to the last fret not one dead spot or muted note. the neck is thin and fast, narrow at the nut like a jazz bass and not too wide at the body and no string buzz. i have small hands so this is just made for me. the setup was perfect right out of the box. first impression. i love this bass. i had a fender pj bass once with the same pick up configuration, and a jazz neck, american made. today they call it a modified p bass, i think. this bass is every bit as good. i would play this bass on any stage, anytime, anywhere with out embarrassment. for the money you can't beat the bass. i am 63. i have had a lot of basses in my life. this one is ranked in the top 3. the only con i have is minor. it is an active bass and it did come with a battery, but the battery was dead. no bigie. a new battery and it was good to go. i have never owned an active guitar before so i did realize it would play at all without a battery. it didn't come with an owner manual no bigie either i just like having one and i can't find one on line. other wise i'm tickled pink.

                    My main instrument is guitar, but I bought this bass so I can play in a couple of side projects. It arrived in playable condition, although I did make some minor adjustments. The strings were quite high off the fretboard.

                    With the pickup setup it's really easy to dial in a lot of different sounds.

                    It's a nice looking low-priced instrument that plays well. I use it to play music in a rock band in small to medium sized venues and it sounds good.

                      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Bass Guitar Special:

                      I bought this bass as an extra to keep round wound strings on after I switched to flats on my primary bass. I'd read the great reviews and the price was phenomenal, so I decided to give it a shot.
                      Straight out of the box the bass was good-playable and pretty. I made some slight truss rod adjustments and lowered the action according to the specs on the Fender website, but that's easy (hint: buy an inexpensive set of automotive feeler gauges). The finish is good, the neck is straight and fast, the frets seem well-finished, the tuners stay in tune, and the electronics are solid. I did switch out the neck pickup for a Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound, but that'd just because I already had it and knew I liked the tone it produced.
                      I never used the bridge pickup in my main p/j bass, but on the Jaguar I find that if I kill the neck pickup, max out the bridge, roll the tone about half way down and use the bass boost at about 25% I get a really good funk tone. This makes the bass *very* versatile.
                      So far I have nothing but great things to say about this bass. Highly recommended.
