The Jazzmaster isn't your normal Fender/Squier Stratocaster. Most people new to them do not know how to set them up, and some are ruined by the experience of a JM or Jag with a bad set up. So here's a quick tutorial to make the Jazzmaster into a real player.

Most problems encountered by people who are new to these guitars is the strings will pop out of place constantly, it's simply because it's not set up right.

First, take those 9's off of the guitar, you'll want heavier strings, at least 11's. Remember this guitar was designed at a time when the lightest gauge string was 12's, but 11's work just fine, I wouldn't go any lower. I say this because light gauge strings don't have enough tension and combined with the low break angle of the bridge, the strings will pop out of the saddles, but with heavy strings, they'll stay in the saddles,

Second, take the neck off, and put a shim in the very back of the neck pocket, 2 or 3 pieces of a business card stacked on top of each other will suffice, then put the neck back on. What this does is provide more break angle to help keep the strings on the saddles.

You may notice that the bridge is right up against the pickguard, and the saddles are raised way up, with the intonation screws touching the playable part of the strings. This is completely wrong.

First, raise or lower the outer two saddles, so the intonation screws are level with the front edge of the bridge, then take the small allen wrench that comes with the guitar, and raise the bridge until the Low E and High E are about 2mm above the 12th fretwire, then set the radius of the other saddles (Hint: the front edge of the bridge is the radius.) Of course you might want the bridge a bit higher or lower.

When you set the intonation, it's extremely important to hold the bridge in the center of the thimbles, it was designed to rock back and forth when using the trem, and if you let the bridge go forward during intonation, everything will be off.

Now, with the neck shimmed and the bridge raised up, and using heavy strings, you won't have any problems with rattles, or the strings popping out of place. Of course going up to 11's will require a little adjusting to the truss rod, Intonation, and to the spring adjustment screw of the trem (it's the screw right next to the whammy bar)

That's all there is to it. But you might encounter another problem. New Jazzmaster/Jaguar bridges and saddles like to lower themselves while you play. If this happens, reset your action, then get some good clear nail polish. Brush the polish onto the saddle height adjustment screws, that will keep them locked in place, until you decide to make more adjustments. Due to the intonation, one or two of the screws might touch a string, if that happens, you can move the string over a little to keep them from touching, unless you like Sitar sounds.

Also, if your entire bridge lowers itself, readjust it, pull it out, and apply nail polish to the height adjustment screws. Be careful not to cover the entire screw with it, because it will prevent the guitar from being grounded, and you'll get some nasty hum.

This tutorial isn't just for Squiers, the things I've described have been done since the first Jazzmaster left the Fender plant in 1958.

Also, a few more tips, Lubricate the nut, I personally use a small dab of Lip Balm in the nut slots, it'll last for a good while, and it keeps the strings from hanging up in the nut.

If you can't raise the bridge pickup enough, you can uncrew the four screws that hold it on, the pickups are screwed directly to the body, and use a thick foam pad instead of springs. If you need to raise them higher, cut a couple pieces of cardboard from the box the guitar comes in, lay them in the pickup cavity, and screw the pickup(s) back down. Now you'll have a lot of extra height to play with.

Oh, also, the whammy bar will lock into place, instead of spinning around freely, push it in as far as possible. It'll be a bit difficult to get it in and out, but it won't fall out, and it'll stay where you want it.

OK. I admit it. I was very excited to have my Squier VM Jazmmaster on order and couldn't wait to get it. I have owned a Squier J. Mascis Jazzmaster and it was first class all the way.

When this guitar showed up, I was ready for a solid, well built instrument that would need a little tweaking, but be ready to play in short order. Instead, this guitar totally missed the quality and reliability I have come to expect in Squier guitars. The pickup buzz was totally loud and annoying, both neck and bridge pickups. The strings were way off the neck and uneven across the fretboard. The sound was brittle, harsh and really hurt my ears. I was surprised when I selected the Rhythym mode that the neck pickup was still very bright and the tone rolled off to an instant muddy sound when I tried the roller tone adjuster wheel. The finish was shockingly bad with pits and smears in the finish, especially on the back. The guitar had two noticeable scratches on the lower horn and on the pickguard, even through the protective plastic peel coat. The neck felt good, a little chunky but I could use it.

Again, I have owned several Squiers and know what to expect. I wasn't looking for Fender American or even MIM quality, but this guitar truly was an absolute shame. Also,the body was made up of 6, yes "6" pieces of laminated wood! Having ordered the 3 tone sunburst, it was painfully obvious and each plank showed up, especially one annoying knot hole. If you order one of these you may want to consider a solid color.

OK. I've given this guitar a harsh review and it deserved it, but I re-ordered another one and am betting on the quality I have become accustomed to from Squier. I am hoping this was just an odd ball.

Come on Squier. Let's see a better quality guitar next time, OK?

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

      I bought this guitar as a project guitar. Replaced the nut with a bone nut. Replaced the pots with cts pots for better control of volume and tone, and for a better rhythm circuit sound. Had a professional setup done by a luthier. Eventually, I'll probably put in a Stay-trem bridge in. The stock bridge is okay although the high E keeps wanting to move. Pickups sound great for the price. If you always wanted a Jazzmaster like me, this is the one to get. Make sure you put 11's on it. The extra long string length makes them feel like 10's. And it sounds a lot better.

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

      I have been wanting a Jazzmaster for years, so when I saw the Squier prices starting to increase, I took the plunge. Mine is Sonic Blue, but it appears slightly lighter in color than Fender's original color. It arrived with a decent setup, requiring only a slight truss rod adjustment and floating bridge adjustment. The intonation was good, and all the electronics functioned properly. I like the somewhat beefy neck profile, and the frets were level and smooth, with no sharp edges. I was happy to see that the strings were properly aligned on the neck, and centered over the pickup pole pieces.

      There were a couple of cosmetic issues with the paint, such as a paint run resulting in a bubble, a couple of small spots near the neck pocket devoid of paint, and a small split in the paint on the edge of the body. I considered sending it back for a replacement, but I was afraid that the next one might have string alignment problems that are common on Squiers (high "E" string too close to the fretboard edge) or other issues.

      This guitar just sounds good! It has a chimey ring when played clean, through my Fender Deluxe Reverb. I have had no problems with the bridge or saddles, but I use 11's for strings. The only other issue is that the tone and volume rollers on the rhythm circuit are barely accessable, being flush with the pickguard. I took a look under the hood, and there is no room for adjustment. The vibrato bar keeps falling out whenever it wants to, but the system works smoothly and sounds good. The floating bridge and threaded saddles take some getting used to, but they are true to the original design and are just fine by me, if used with heavy strings. These guitars are not for everybody, but they produce a sound that you just can't get with any other Fender. The bodies are made from basswood, which is not my first choice due to the soft nature of the wood and the weight. But these Jazzmasters are a lot of bang for your buck, and are a blast!

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

      Since nobody has mentioned this yet, the price just went up. I own both the (Squier VM) sonic blue Jazzmaster and the surf green Jaguar. I bought both "used" a year ago for around "two bills" one form MF and one from a local shop. Even though both guitars were "used", they were cosmetically in "like new" condition. The overall quality is darn good for the original lower price, but very questionable at the new higher price. Both guitars needed a fret level (due to a couple of dead spots on the fret board) and they needed a professional set up. So, I ended up dropping extra money into each guitar. The pickup selector on the Jazzmaster went out after a month due to poor quality parts. So, that was extra money. I also own the Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster (a great price from MF with 15% deal). I have played probably 200 gigs and hundreds of hours of practices with the Fender and it has never let me down. However, I will need a re-fret in the near future because of normal wear and tear. That being said, I would not trust the Squier VM guitars for gigs unless they were completely upgraded with better pots, caps, switches, and re-wired. So, if you consider that extra cost, you might as well buy the Fender. I will use my Squier Jazzmaster and Jaguar around the house and maybe at practices, but they are more of a novelty. Many people love these and they were flying off the shelf at the lower price, so Fender/Squier saw the opportunity to make some extra coin by upping the price. But, they may have just priced themselves out of the market. Especially when you can get a used (or MF 15% off) Fender Classic Player for a little more.

        A real Jazzmaster without the heavy price tag of an actual Fender. Beautifully made for an Asian import (Indonesia to be exact). As seems to be the case these days with Squier guitars, great value for the money. I'd recommend it to anyone on a budget like myself.

        I bought the sunburst one because thats what my 65' was....as far as the bridge? No biggie there are replacement saddles that have one groove in them and the strings don't slip off the saddles as easily. If its still a problem,them make an after market part that mounts easily behind the bridge to hold the strings down giving more tension on the saddles....problem solved!! This baby really does have a great feel,and feels solid. I used to be an Authorized Gibson and Fender repairman,and for what thats worth,this is a great guitar that doesn't rip your pocket book to shreds! So...that being said...for a little upgrading,and just a smidgen of cash...you'll have a great playing....sounding...and looking Jazzmaster!

        Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

        When I was just starting to play I saw my first Jazzmaster in a local music store. It was a sunburst model, it looked awesome and, played great. Well it was way out of my price range so I had to settle for some thing else. Through out my 40+ years of playing I caught up in the 335's, Tele's, Strat's and, LP's I was doing fine. For some reason, recently the Jazzmaster that I remembered form the 60's was on my mind. Well I'm not a fan of Squire guitars but, this one is definately a WINNER! I read reviews, watched video reviews and, I decided to go for it. GREAT decision!
        I don't know if I got lucky or Squire has upped their quality but, when I recieved this instrument I had very little setup to do. Lowered the action (very little) checked the intonation and, I was playing this fine instrument with ease. I have always been a light not heavy handed player, I have always used light picks and, light guage strings. I have had no problems with buzzing,loose screws or strings coming off the saddles. I took this guitar to a New Years Eve gig and, played it for a whole set, performed perfectly!
        Very happy and, satisfied with this guitar. The sunburst finish is beautiful, looks vintage all the way, just like I remembered when I was a kid. Different sounding than a Tele or a Strat just the way that it should.

        Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

        I have wanted a Jazzmaster ever since I saw one. When I just started to play I had a chance to look at one and play it a little in a local music store. I really liked the way it looked an sounded but, at that time in my life it was too much dinero so I had to pass. Through out the 40+ years of playing I got into the Tele, Strat and, LP scene sorta forgot about it. Don't know why but, I guess it was just time to think about what I have missed and, BOOM! the Jazzmaster was on my mind. Started reading reviews, looking at videos and, checking out the instruments. I had a Squire Vintage Modified Tele with the 3 PUP's several years ago and, it was quite a nice guitar but, I sold it. Honestly I have not been a Squire fan but, this Jazzmaster has definately won me over. I don't know if I just got lucky or Squire has really upped their game but, this instrument required very little setup when I recieved it! Lowered the action (very little) tuned it, checked the intonation and, I was off to the races. I have always played with a light style never heavy handed, always have used a light pick and, light guage strings. Truly I have not experienced any of the things that some of the other reviewers have commented on ( buzzing strings, bridge or anything like that) I still have the same strings that came with the guitar, although I am planning to resting in the near future. The only problem that I had was when I was removing the thin plastic coating from the pickguard it removed some of the gloss part of the pickguard itself, I have never had that happen B4. I contacted MF and, they took care of the issue in fine fasion. I also contacted Fender and, htey sent me a new pickguard Free. I ordered the sunburst finish and, it is stunning! For the money spent this is really a fine, well built and, great playing guitar. I will say that if you're into metal or heavy rock this may not be the guitar for you. I am very satisfied and, happy with this instrument and, at reasonable price.

          Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Jazzmaster Electric Guitar:

          I've been playing at a high level for over 35 years and have several high end guitars. I sold my Fender American 50th anniversary Jaguar after receiving this. Not much of a difference in quality, sound or playability vs the Jag for a fraction of the price. Plus the fatter pickups sound better IMO.
          This guitar is great. Buy it. You will not be disappointed!!

          Surprisingly nice quality instrument overall. Holiday discount = great deal too. Arrived quickly in good shape but as from factory; not set-up + crummy/dirty/flat strings. Set-up required; intonation + shim the neck + truss rod adjustment + new D'Addario strings = now its pretty good.
          Right now our collection is @ 28 guitars w/ 5 Fender Jazzmasters (not Squier). All Jazzmasters are not created equal, so to speak. As a player/collector since 1977 I am impressed with this one - alotta bang for the buck. I'll swap out the electronics eventually but not immediately because its really not necessary.
          I'd def recommend to anyone but with the understanding it'll need a professional set-up to be correct.
