      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass '70s:

      I own 2 Squier VM jazz basses with the Duncan Designed pickups and 1 with the new Fender-designed pickups. Yes, the pickups sound different, but they both sound great! The new high-gloss necks are high quality and very consistent.

      Not only are these nice basses straight from Fender, they are also a great canvas for your own customization. Replacement/Upgrade parts are readily available. Or if you are like me with a few of these, you can easily swap parts and make your own combination.

      Overall, these basses are the best bang for the buck. If my wife would let me, I'd buy every color combination they make.

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass '70s:

      I was sitting in a music store waiting on them to find me a certain Precision bass when I just pulled this Squier down from the rack to have something to thump on while I waited....then I just fell in love with it. I have been playing bass for over 30 years and I was just amazed at how well this bass felt...solid and well made. I bought it (and another one in a different color) and plugged it in when I got home and was floored by the tonality and bottom end of it..Very, very pleased with it. I have had MiM's before and I like these better honestly. Too bad it has the Squire name on the headstock, but oh well....I love it....

      Squier Vintage Modified 70's Jazz Bass

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass '70s:

      I purchased the Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass back when they were producing 3 tone sunburst models and I was actually blown away by the cosmetic look of the bass. If you were to take off the Squier logo, I'd probably have a tough time knowing it wasn't an authentic 70's bass....until you start playing it.

      Every bass is different, but the one that I ordered had some major setup problems. The action was amazingly high and fret buzz was pretty evident the lower you played, but after about an hour of making adjustments, it played just fine. Almost every piece of hardware that came with it (pickups, bridge, tuners, pickguard, strings), I ended up replacing and I really learned the art of upgrading on this bass (which I think every guitarist/bassist should learn). Suddenly, a back up bass became a large investment that I would bring to practice or small events when I didn't feel like hauling my Rickenbacker or Lakland skyline Precision bass. In the end, I really liked the product that this bass turned into, I felt it was in the same category as the American made Highway 1 jazz basses you could get for much more.

      In the end, this bass hasn't left my house in almost two years since I ended up getting an American Deluxe jazz, but I think the musicians who would want this bass are:

      -Beginners
      -Individuals who want to learn how to upgrade
      -Intermediate or Experienced bass players with small incomes who don't mind upgrading over time (if you're willing to break it in with adjustments or take it to a luthier).

      In all, I can't recommend this for serious use or recording, but it will get the job done in a pinch. You simply can't go wrong with a jazz bass, no matter what logo it has on the headstock.

          This bass was one of the worst basses I've ever purchased. I am hoping to sell it and try to get back some of the money I've lost. The frets are uneven, and the pick ups sound thin and cheap.
