        Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass V 5-String Electric Bass:

        I have to qualify my review of this instrument with the fact that this is my first 5 string, so I don't know how this compares with other 5 string basses.

        I bought this bass because I needed a 5 string, and I didn't want to spend a lot of money.

        Initially, I didn't like the way this bass sounded and played out of the box, but I almost never do with a new instrument. The first thing I did was change the strings to flats and gave the instrument a good setup. The truss rod needed to be loosened by a couple turns, and the action needed to be tweaked to my liking. The result was an instrument that both plays well, and has clear articulate notes on all strings.

        I have a $1600 bass that will now sit and collect dust because of this one. The fretwork is on par with my most expensive instruments, which I am incredibly pleased with. I have found only 2 problems with this instrument. The "A" string will rattle a bit in the nut, but that was easily fixed by putting some paper around where it sits in the nut groove. Most people won't have this problem, as I'm using some light strings. My other issue with it isn't really a problem with this bass, as it is with my collection of instruments as they sit. The pickup on this bass has much lower output than my other two basses, so I can't really switch instruments at gigs if I bring this one. This is not a problem for someone who only takes one instrument to gigs.

        Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass V 5-String Electric Bass:

        This Jazz Bass V is the 3rd guitar I've bought from MF (the first used one) along with an ES-175 and Tele Deluxe and I couldn't be happier. It was advertised as a Condition 3, and I didn't really know what shape it would be in, but it showed up without a mark on the neck or body, and just normal scratches on the pickguard so I have no complaints, and for the price it's unbeatable. There was some fret buzz, but a simple truss rod adjustment took care of it. It's a great complement to my fretless Jazz Bass (Jaco copy).

          Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass V 5-String Electric Bass:

          This bass is everything I would ever want in a bass and suits my taste of classic looks and tone. The pickups and electronics sound excellent. The tuners work excellent. The bridge and truss rod adjust as they should. The frets don't buzz. My only complaint is the color; I would have preferred something more like black or burst, and with a rosewood fingerboard. But otherwise, I don't see what can be found at fault with this bass. Buy it.
