OVERVIEW

The look and style of yesteryear with updated specs and electronics.

With its offset waist, contoured body, and 24" scale fast action neck, the new Vintage Modified Jaguar® gives a nod to its iconic forbearer but has other things going for it that make it truly 'modified'. The unique top-loading hardtail bridge features string saddles which are adjustable for intonation and designed to have a 9.5" radius when sitting flat on the bridge plate. The bridge is anchored at the rear of the plate while the front sits atop height adjustment screws which can be raised or lowered to achieve desired string height/action while subtle adjustment at the rear (anchor) achieves the correct bridge angle. The Jaguar HH is equipped with a set of Duncan Designed„¢ pickups which offer a multitude of "hot-rodded" humbucking tones. Other features include '62 Jazz Bass concentric volume/tone controls, vintage style tuners and a comfortable one-piece maple neck with rosewood fingerboard.

this is a great guitar right out of the box. the neck shape is nice and thick, but not a baseball bat, and feels almost identical to that of the classic player jaguar. I originally bought the sunburst model and the only modification I made to it was to disconnect the tone controls and use the pots as spin-a-splits to be able to split the humbuckers. That guitar was later stolen and I liked the model so much that I bought another, this time in fiesta red, this time taking advantage of the rhythm and lead circuit routes already present and modifying the guitar with a rhythm circuit like that of the classic player jaguar HH, adding the chrome plates that a jaguar should have and moving the pickup switch to the treble horn.

the stock pickups sound really great. the bridge pickup sounds like a JB, which it's modeled after and I can't say whether or not the neck pickup sounds like a jazz model since i've never had one. after adding switching to be able to split the pickups, I am able to get almost any tone that anyone could want from a guitar.

Lots of people don't like the bridge on this model, mostly because they think that for it to be a Jaguar it needs a tremolo, but I don't. I like how the saddles lay against the bridge plate at the appropriate radius for the neck and the bridge plate can be raised or lowered, but the individual saddles can also be adjusted if needed, kind of like a vintage jaguar bridge, but without the annoyance if it floating or the strings popping out of the saddle.

The one thing about the guitar that I really hate is the skunk stripe on the back of the neck, because I prefer the vintage correct look of a neck with a rosewood fretboard not having a skunk stripe.

I don't really care for the strat output jack, but I can live with it.

Overall, this guitar is one of the best Squiers I've ever owned, rivaling the quality of the classic vibe models, but with a lower price tag.

I got this guitar for my little brother before the new Vintage Modified Jags with the more authentic design came out, and I regret that a little bit. I'm going to try to be neutral in this review, but keep in mind that a lot of what I don't like about this guitar is personal preference and what are cons to me might be pros to you.

The Good:
-These pickups are awesome. I have guitars that cost two or three times this price, and these are some of the best humbuckers I've ever heard. They're hot and in your face, and work well for the Kurt Cobain-inspired music this guitar is obviously designed for.
-The neck is a middle-of-the-road C profile, maybe a little fatter than a 60s Strat but nowhere near a 50s Strat or a Tele. This could be a pro or a con depending on what you like. I'm neutral; I prefer Soft V profiles, but this is not bad.
-The body is lightweight and resonates very well, it is a lively-sounding guitar for sure.

Now for the Bad, and unfortunately there is a lot:
-The bridge, the same design as the one from the Fender Toronado, is a terrible design. The height screws are hard to access and are not stable. The saddles are nigh-impossible to intonate. It is VERY hard to get a low action on this guitar, which is a problem I will tough upon later.
-The tuners are passable, but like many Fender-style guitars it is a challenge to keep the high B and E strings in the tuner hole while stringing and tuning to pitch. It takes some practice if you are used to working with Gibson-style tuners.
-I know some people like Jumbo frets, but personally I absolutely hate them. These frets are so tall that you can bend the notes up a half-step just by pressing them to the fretboard. I guess these are useful for tapping, but the fact that you need a very light touch to keep from bending the notes out of tune combined with the difficulty in getting low action makes this guitar very difficult for me to play.
-The 9.5" radius is not my preference either, but it's pretty standard and many folks like their fretboards even flatter.
-Finally, the toggle switch went out on me after about 3 months of very occasional playing.

To sum everything up, I'd like to say that I had a very difficult time trying to bond with this guitar. It looks and sounds pretty, but it is just not a comfortable guitar to play, even after countless tweakings of the setup.

That said, I would wholeheartedly recommend other guitars in the Squier Vintage Modified line, particularly their new Jaguars, Jazzmasters, and Mustangs. Squier is certainly capable of making a fantastic instrument at a low pricepoint, but this just isn't one of them.

VERY DETAILED REVIEW!!!!

By Jarred Valdez

from Glendale, AZ

See all my reviews

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar HH Electric Guitar:

I don't need to say anything hear, just read everything above.
This guitar is AMAZING!!! And I DESPISED Squier guitars!!! I LOVE Fender, but the Squier neck was a HUGE turn off.... until I grabbed this Jaguar! I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. Being a Cobain fan it was the right style guitar for me! The dual humbuckers are fantastic, although i do not like the Zebra designs at all. I'd rather have creme colored pickups, but that's something i can change later. The one problem I have is the toggle switch on the upper horn. It gets in the way when I'm playing and causes me to switch to the other pickup selections. BUT, i figured i'll just buy some Gaffers Tape and cover it up. I don't care what the others think of the bridge, but it's really not all that bad! I hate tremelo, so it's perfect for those who don't get TOO fancy with that stuff. Not the most visually appealing bridge, but it's very simplistic! The neck is LOVELY! It has a magnificent thin-ness to it, so it offers really good playability PLUS it has great action! The Kluson-Style tuners are great too, really make string changes MUCH easier!
The ONLY problems I currently have with this guitar is the strings have a LITTLE buzz, but it's something that I can deal with. AND the tuning of the guitar can get off sometimes, which is annoying, but you gotta realize that EVERY guitar has it's flaws AND it's not a FENDER JAGUAR, so cut it some slack. Other than that, the quality is ABSOLUTELY STELLAR!!!
I got this guitar for a great price! Compared to the Fender Jaguars. I own a Fender Jag-Stang as well, and I will have to say that this Jaguar is JUST about as good as it. I love both guitars very much and recommend this guitar to ANYBODY who is considering it. I was told to get the Squier Jazzmaster instead, but I can't stand P-90's and the blonde color. Sorry, Fender/Squier but the 3-Tone Sunburst is my favorite. Anyways, that raps up my review. I hope it helps.

Fun Guitar, great for kicking out the jams

By Henry Schecker

from Stroudsburg, P.A.

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar HH Electric Guitar:

It's a sweet little chord machine, absolutely fantastic for rythm playing. I play it every other day at my local music store, just waiting for the day I have enough money saved up to take it home. It can play everything from The Beatles to AC/DC to Nirvana and even some jazzy stuff. The fiesta red finish is awesome and the "duncan designed" pickups arre on par to stock epiphone humbuckers. It has a really comfy neck- nice and smooth- for people with short fingers or fat fingers(like me) and it's offset waist rests perfectly on your knee. It's a good jamming guitar, I could sit and bang out chords all day with it. It plays almost like a les paul, but the body contours make it much better than one. I'd recommend lead players to look elsewhere though, this one's better for the rhythm players.
The concentric volume cleans up nicely, the guitar is pretty simple in other aspects. The bridge holds the strings nice and taut. I actually prefer the strat jack, because it holds the cable better.
Feels solid and chunky(in a good way) It feels like it could take a fair amount of violence and abuse.
for the money it's a great guitar, feels like a mexican made fender.

Squire Has Come a Long Way!!!

By Jaguar4life

from Bryant, Arkansas

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar HH Electric Guitar:

I finally got to play the new Squire Jazzmaster butterscotch today, and the new Squire Jaguar today! The jazzmaster is cool, but was too bright for my liking! I played on both for about an hour, and ended up leaving with the Jaguar. The sunburst looks beautiful in pictures, but they do it no justice, until you see it in person. The duncan designed humbuckers make this thing sound amazing. I have seeen where alot of people were concerned that without all the buttons, which the typical Fender Jaguar has that not as many sounds can be achieved. Nope, the 3 way switch and concentric nobs give one several possibilities musically and soniclly to adjust. This is hands down the most versatile guitar I have ever owned, and I have owned several american, japan, mexico, you name it with guitars. Note that just because this guitar is not step by step in accuracy to the traditional jaguar, it still gives up nothing. Perfect for Grunge, metal, and many jazz type sounds, and even blues! I could definitely see this being my perfect guitar for recording in the studio! I have also heard people's worries about the strat-like jack, and this guitar not having a tremelo. I think the strat-like jack makes this jaguar unique, and I have no complaints about hardtails, actually prefer them! Thank you Squier! Keep up the good work!

Cool Little Guitar and an Awesome Mod Platform

By Worm Food Express

from Dallas, TX

See all my reviews

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar HH Electric Guitar:

Again, with the mods I now feel this is a 10. But as it stands on the shelf I have to say they could've gone with a much better bridge, and a string thru design might've been interesting.
First off I have to say this has quickly become my favorite guitar. My other guitars being an American Tele and a MIM Tele (and previously a MIM Strat, Thinline Tele, etc..) The neck on this thing is very sweet, vintage frets and capable of really low action (though there will be some fret buzz on the 6th and 5th strings, but enough I can live).

I will say that I've since changed out the bridge and the pickups. The bridge in truth plays decently but made the guitar sound a bit dull imo, I swapped in a bridge that makes full contact with the body and the guitar sprung to life much more than I expected. People could hardly believe it was the same guitar, even before swapping out the pickups. The pickups are of good quality btw, but I'm more into the single coil sound.

With the short scale neck and lightweight body this has become my favorite guitar to jam on while watching TV and such, and with the mods is now my favorite recording guitar as well. As far as performing it's amazingly easy to play on this thing, and it looks pretty cool as well.

- Sunbelt Ryders
If they shipped this thing with single coil pickups and a better bridge it would be a 10. The quality of the wiring and pots underneath the pickguard were surprisingly impressive. Very tidy wiring job and full sized pots. I did have to do a small repair to the toggle switch, which only involved dabbing on a small amount of solder and took a total of 30 seconds.
Awesome value for the money, Fender has been doing some impressive things with the Squier line imports recently.

Great looks-Great sound-Great Value

By Joseph Imbasciani

from Florida

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar HH Electric Guitar:

I test drove this Indonesian Squier Jaguar and compared it side by side with the MIM Fender Blacktop Jaguar HH and I liked this Indonesian one so much more that I bought one. I already have 9 guitars, so I look for something different, well made and sounds good and this guitar fills the bill. It is so cheap if I ever want to change pickups or upgrade electronics, I'm still ahead. Hard to find a nice Fiesta Red Fender, but this is one I'm happy I found. Get one before they're all gone.

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar HH Electric Guitar:

I wanted to love this guitar and tried for to for a couple of weeks. The guitar looks great, and the neck is very nice, but that doesn't make up for the rest of its faults.

As many mention, the bridge is almost worthless. Getting the intonation setup is nearly impossible and I could never keep this guitar in tune for more than one song-- retuning that often gets really annoying to me.

Another issue is the neck pickup. As soon as I switched to it, the guitar sounded like I was playing underwater. The bridge pickup was pretty nice though.

I guess I was hoping for a lot more, but it is a "cheap" guitar. Other reviewers have found much luck with it, but unfortunately, I did not. I ended up returning it and the customer service at Musician's Friend has been nothing but spectacular.

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar HH Electric Guitar:

These guitars have some good things going for them. Very comfortable to hold and play. Nice profile on body and neck. Nice, attractive finish. Good quality Duncan Designed pickups. Versatile controls. But it needs a lot of work to make it a usable, good playing instrument. The frets are wildly out of level - absolutely needs a fret level. The bridge is the stupidest design ever. It is impossible to adjust the intonation without a lot of trouble. Not well anchored in the body. The bridge needs to be rebuilt to make the guitar usable. I would not recommend this guitar unless you know how to fix a lot of the design flaws. Once those design flaws are fixed it is a very nice guitar for the money.

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar HH Electric Guitar:

Overall not bad to mod, bridge is terrible as I said...kinda put together quick. Classic look, great sound (when it works!). Check it out and make your own decision.
First off, sounds and plays great. The one thing was at the store the toggle went out...not good. The guy has no idea what happend. When it was working the sound was great, neck smooth, perfect tone and feel. The bridge however is horrible...it tore up the palm of my hand doing simple muffled sounds. Still thinking what I should do...
Well made with the finish, neck, body but the bridge is terrible and electronics need work.
Ok, I have seen better

    This Jag may be low budget but it is Top Notch. I have higher priced instruments but for the money, this instrument can't be beat. Save your funds and get this Jag if you want to learn to play or already an experienced player, you won't be sorry. I'm sure that if John Lennon were alive now he could play one of these on a stage some where and everyone would be scrambling to buy one as like with the Epiphone he made famous. With just a little TLC and tweeking you could have this Jag playing like it was made just for you.

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar HH Electric Guitar:

    First of all, let me say that I have been playing mostly budget-type electrics during the past few years. That being said, this Squier is the best type of guitar for me and played perfectly out of the proverbial box. The neck feels perfect and I can take the bar chords very high on the neck without feeling crowded. The finish is beautiful and flawless; I love the Fiesta Red/Tortoise shell pick guard combo, which is more vibrant than the pictures convey. Since I am a novice, I am certain the "floating" bridge might be a problem if it needed adjustment. However, it was adjusted perfectly for my playing...I checked and there are some interesting after-market bridges for this guitar, so don't despair if it doesn't please you.
    All in all, the vintage modified Squier Jaguar is great for the novice to experienced type player.

      I have a small collection of these VM models, but this Jaguar is especially sweet. Action and intonation were right on out of the box. This guitar is the "other" Jaguar: humbuckers instead of single coil, fixed bridge instead of tremolo. It's got a big, bright sound on the bridge. The fret ends are smooth, and best of all, the controls are placed so that they don't get in the way of your hand.

The bridge will probably be replaced with something more practical...The classic shape of the Jag, along with the rather cool fiesta red and coordinating pickguard, I'm in love, baby!

      I appreciate the great price, but it is a big negative to send guitars to customers without making any effort to intonate/setup with very bad strings. Unless you can do your own set-up and put on strings correctly, the savings is negated quite a bit. For me not an issue just a little frustration and putting in the extra time and effort to get it where it should have been delivered. List it not set up, then have an optional additional charge for setup.

        Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar HH Electric Guitar:

        I am getting back into playing after a 12+ year hiatus, and chose this Squire. I love this Jaguar, it is definitely a get what you pay for guitar. That is not a bad thing. I would describe it as good craftsmanship with low quality parts. The tuning machines and knobs are not the best quality. The guitar is hard to Intonate due to the fact that the saddles raise and lower but also slide forward and backward, all while the guitar must be loosely strung to access the screws. It can take a ridiculous amount of trial and error/re-tuning. It is worth it though, the guitar feels and sounds great! I have been playing it for over a month with no issues.

          I bought this Jag because I wanted a "short scale" guitar. All my other guitars are Strats and Teles. Paint and finish are flawless. I was planning on switching out the electronics because I have a few nice humbuckers lying around in my parts box. The guitar sounded fantastic with the stock pickups so I didn't need to take the time to swap them out. The frets were level with clean edges. Intonation right on. Played pretty well right out of the box. I did adjust the action by lowering the bridge. Easy to do with the two screws (one on either side of the bridge). I am very happy with this guitar. I'll be keeping it.

          This is an alright guitar. I am not a big fan of JAGS or jaguars I must say. This one cannot touch the MIA I sold but it is okay. I prefer the Squier strat standard if we are looking at Cheap guitars or the Epi Sg 400 walnut as a very good guitar

          Very nice. Squier has to be the best per-dollar value for lo-$$$ guitars.

          I am constantly amazed by the quality of these Squires. This is my second in as many years. After a few strike-outs looking for the right Gibson, I determined this low-budgeteer might work for my short scale/humbucker needs. And I was right. This guitar, like my last Modded Tele, is impeccably finished and has a scorching sound. The guitar is solid, and after minimal set-up, is ready to blaze away! Not a buttery Les Paul feel and the sound is sort of one-dimensional--L0UD!-- For the price paid, quite a nice guitar. The only complaint I might have is the bridge-- Weird stamped steel thing that is just sort of hanging there by wood screws, but worse, is that setting intonation(which it needed) is a really ponderous affair. I would have even preferred if they did a Gibson wrap-around to this one, but oh well . . . After checking out the entire squire line, I think they are a really hip company. The Avril Lavign/Sum41 Teles, the hotrodded Jags and Jazz's, etc. For new guitarists and someone just needing a workhorse like me, they have something for you.
