I've been playing for 50+ years. Have owned LOTS of guitars -- presently a dozen. Fenders (American and MIM), Gibsons, Martin.etc. I know good from so-so. This is a GOOD guitar. Beautiful to look at. A delight to play. Solid feeling. Very versatile.

Back in the early, pre-Beatle, `60s I was into Surf and pre-surf instrumentals such as the Ventures. Seeing this guitar and reading here and on forums how pleased even experienced guitarists were with this Jaguar I figured it would be worth the chance. Well now, owning it and playing it through a variety of amps, I am simply blown away.

Some here (and elsewhere) have commented on the need for a careful setup -- and particularly mentioned hassles with the bridge. I expected to experience the same but did not.

My instrument was pretty well set up out of the box. Neck relief was perfect. The bridge followed the fingerboard radius. String height was well set. (Only intonation, while not terrible, needed some tweaking. But the guitar came with .9s -- an odd choice for a short scale instrument. So I almost immediately went over to .11s (pure nickel). This may well explain why i had no bridge hassles, even when playing vigorously. This guitar NEEDS heavy strings, It was designed for them. Without them the bridge just doesn't work as it was designed to.

A true surprise was the guitar's versatility. Yes, the "rhythm" circuit is great for background playing. But it also sings for great leads through a high gain amp. The "Lead" circuit is just that -- but it can get not only the cleans it is famous for (Surf's up!) but also a wonderful Claptonesque "woman tone."

The body shape is comfortable when standing with a good strap (it is a fairly heavy guitar), but more unique is that it is comfortable while sitting - this due to the so-called "offset" body shape.

I could go on and on. The guitar is truly that fine. But at the price MF sells it for it is unfreakinbelieveable.

First, this review is no reflection on Musicians Friend. I love MF and have a very long, positive relationship with them. That will continue.
This is about Fender Instruments, with which I also had (HAD) a long (37 year) relationship.
I could not get this guitar set up, no matter what I did. I own 38 guitars, and have owned many more in 44 years of playing. I can set up a guitar to perfection in my sleep. In fact, I've built 8 guitars myself. This guitar was impossible to set up. So I finally took off the neck to examine it. It was twisted. It hadn't been made right, period. I contacted Fender. After 2 weeks they finally responded back, only to send me to a local "certified" Fender tech - who said he didn't even know that Squier made a Jaguar. And his "service" comprised nothing more than to put much heavier strings on it, readjust the saddle height and declare it as "meeting factory specs". He said that about six times. The neck is still twisted, but put heavy enough cables on a fence post and it could probably be declared within "factory specs". What does that have to do with a musical instrument? This guitar is bad. Everyone I showed that neck to had a chuckle over how warped it was...well, everyone but Fender's authorized tech. I own eleven other Fender guitars, ranging from a '76 Tele that I bought new in 1976 all the way to this latest Squier Jag. I own multiple Fender amps, and countless other Fender peripherals. In 4 decades(!) of buying and promoting Fender products, this is the only time I've contacted them for support. And this is what I got.
Welcome to the modern Fender corp. They may be obscenely successful, but don't expect that to translate to you, the musician.
A musician subordinates to a tech? Leo Fender is rolling over in his grave. And I'm going to be looking to Gibson for my next guitar purchase.

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Guitar:

My first guitar was a Jaguar copy and I hated it because I didn't know what it was supposed to be (all the cool kids had Strats). So, years later I decided to order a guitar I loathed? Except I chose seafood green because there were no cool colors in my collection.

The neck is more solid / beefier than I expected from a Fender. It's really nice except the fact that the 1st and 6th strings are so close to the edge of the fingerboard, I had to alter my technique slightly to keep the strings from behaving like lemmings (hence, the four star rating). The strings feel weird on this guitar, I can't pinpoint it exactly - the factory strings felt like 9s but were probably 10s; I normally use 11s at standard tuning and the 11s I put on feel like 10s.

Unplugged, the vibrato springs resonate like crazy. Not a bad thing, just an observation. And the vibrato arm is not threaded, meaning that if you took a bow the vibrato arm could possibly fall out. FAR more chrome than should be allowed on a single instrument.

The electronics / wiring are bizarre. There is a bridge and neck pickup on/off switch for each, a "strangle" switch which sucks out the bass (hey, sometimes you need a treble boost to get your point across), and the ultra-mysterious dark circuit, which is used for rhythm. The dark circuit works for either / or both pickups, but if you turn both pickups off and engage the dark circuit, the guitar still speaks (I haven't figured out that one yet).

If you need a goofy looking guitar with a wide variety of sounds (which you may not be able to duplicate ever), this is definitely the guitar for you. Seriously though, this guitar will get a lot of recording time due to its versatility.

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Guitar:

Practice, jamming and recording. Has that 1950's/1960's sound that makes those vintage songs come alive. A lot has to do with the amp you're using but this guitar adds a just right element.

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Guitar:

I originally purchased this guitar because of John Frusciante (Guitarist for the Red Hot Chili Peppers) influenced me to purchase this guitar because of he many songs he uses it to play. I got the guitar, and I couldn't be happier with it. Just to help out a few people. if your strings keep sliding out of place, use gauge 9-42 strings, that solved the problem for me. this guitar can be used for anything from 50's blues to modern pop. The only thing I would not recommend this guitar for is metal.

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Guitar:

    The guitar looks, feels and sounds great, especially considering it's very reasonable price tag. Most notably it offers a brilliant range of Pick-Up controls that allow you to deeply customise your sound. However, unsurprisingly there is one catch: the bridge. It is just plain horrible. Strings slide all over the place, it regularly comes loose and all in all it's just a burden to the player. Besides this though, it is a great-value guitar that I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for quality but without too much cost.

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Guitar:

      This guitar had a great tone right out of the box. I bought it as a "blemished" item, but it was in perfect shape. Only the hex wenches for adjustments were missing. As with many reviews, I never thought I would buy a Squire, but after my recent purchase of the J Mascis jazzmaster, I decided to try the VM Jag. I changed the bridge to a Warmoth modified mustang bridge. I do not play particularly hard, but the strings did pop out occasionally. That is the only reason I did not give this guitar 5 stars. I also have the Johnny Marr Jag, which I love. It cost 5 times more, but no where near 5 times better.

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Guitar:

      Bought this for myself around Christmas. Got it for a very good price. I bought the white one for the looks and it looks great. Only complaint is I wish they had modified the bridge as well as the keyboard radius. I'm now trying to find a replacement. The standard Mustang bridge is a 9" radius and the VM radius is 12". I will eventually find what I want. Too bad they didn't use an adjusto-matic bridge in the modification of the instrument.

        This is a very nice guitar, after hearing about all the bridge, staying in tune problems, I put some 12's and a bone nut on it and it now stays in tune, and makes that Surf Sound I really like. Fit and finish is right on, buy one before the price goes up again.

        Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Electric Guitar:

        Oh my! I was pleasantly supprized with fit and finish...bring it to a guitar tech to have good set up. To get the best out of this guitar....If nessary, shim the neck angle to raise the bridge.....this will give you a better string break angle to the tailpiece. Because of the short scale try 11's. Make sure you have the nut filed to fit the larger gage strings.
