    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:

      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.

          Great sound, Great electronics, Great feel. Fast neck and active electronics. Don't be fool by the brand. This is a real Fender. Not as popular as the Precision or Jazz bass but a way better deal and equal sound, I have both and I must say I like this Jaguar better. I would buy another tomorrow for back up. It's like that! Try it!

            Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Bass Guitar Special:

            I had this bass for a few months and used it to record, so I'd only heard it through headphones. I was satisfied with that. I finally took it out and played it through a 300 watt Fender combo with a 15 inch speaker- all I can say is WOW. Very powerful tone, tons of variety in the sound- from full-body-massage reggae with the P-pickup to slappy disco knockoff on the J-bass pickup. I did put on new strings, of course, but the setup is otherwise as it came in the box. Fit and finish are really good. The tuners feel a little stiff, but they work and the bass stays in tune almost indefinitely.
            There are no instructions as to what the four knobs do, but here's the deal: top to bottom, neck pickup volume/bridge pickup volume/presence/tone.
            I'm very, very satisfied.

              This is a great overall bass, at an excellent price. The tone and electronics a far superior to the other bass I own, which was made by Axl. I would definitely recommend this bass for beginners or professionals.

                Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Bass Guitar Special:

                Bought this bass like 3 years ago now, and it has been an amazing journey with it. Bought it to replace my practice Rogue LX200B II and finally got this as a gift. Is an amazing back up bass to go to, i don't recommend it as your main cause as the price can show you it has no features as an American or Mexican Jaguar has, but this thing is pretty solid.

                I bought a Lakland 55-01 after 2 years enjoying it, and i can truly tell you that i keep coming back to this one thanks to its narrow neck (Lakland has pretty wide ones).

                After an strings exchange and a set up you'll end up like me, loving this thing.
                I have no plans to sell it cause i enjoy practicing in it cause of its low weight, narrow neck and fast sating finish fretboad.

                I am a semi-professional musician but not a bass player. I just wanted to play this for my own amusement and maybe some recording. It fits the bill nicely. The finish is not the best but the playability is good enough for me.
