    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass 77:

    A sweet bass for the money. I like the sound and looks. Neck very easy to play right out of the box. Confortable to hold. I use it everyday for recording, jamming and gigs and am happy with it. I replaced the bridge for a high mass one and the sustain is even better. I hightly recommend it.

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass 77:

    I had a real 77 once. It played awful. This was a good cheap way to add a maple neck round wound strung bass to my flat wound strung collection of Fenders. It came very poorly set up like most stuff. I adjusted the neck relief, filed the nut slots down etc., added an old quan bridge I had in my parts drawer and set the radius and height, kept the strings because I like them so bought another set of fender 7250's, then I had my luthier dress the frets ( i like very low action)and voila! It plays and sounds better than my old original 77. btw the body wood is agathis which is mahogany so don't shy away from it because of that.

    Amazing quality for a Squier. This bass sounds just as good as my buddies Fender and looks better too. It is a sweet deal for anyone whether your new or even looking for a bass to play shows and record.

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass 77:

      I had a 1977 American Standard J Bass for 35 years; as a guitarist I needed 4 strings for recording & it sounded great. I even played it in a folk rock band [a personal goal to play bass for 3 sets].
      After someone told me of it's resale value, I sold it for $2k+, got a nice Martin & picked up this Squire Reissue for under 3 Bones.
      The neck feels like my '77 & it's like an old friend. The body is about 20% lighter, but that's fine with me. The pickups are alright, but I may swap out the bridge PU. They got pretty darn close in this reissue.
