Product Description

The 70s was a decade when Fender’s basses had a distinct look and a funky tone, and Squier's Vintage Modified Jazz Bass '70s nails that look and sound! Dual Fender-designed pickups and a slim C-shaped maple neck with a vintage-tint gloss finish and black block position inlays combine to provide an incredible feel, look and classic J-bass punch.

Squier also gives this Jazz bass a black-bound 9.5 inch-radius maple fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets, three-ply black pickguard, four-saddle bridge, and knurled chrome control knobs. Super ’70s sound and feel for today’s bassists, with superior Squier performance and value.

Looks and performs really well
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
This is a beautiful Bass Guitar. It plays nicely and is almost every thing I hoped it would be. The only thing that I wish that it had is a similar style plug for the cord. I know I can get a 90 degree plug for it. I just worry that the straight out cord might damage the instrument if it were accidently bumped.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
I have a Fender Strat and this Squire really surprised me in the quality of design and beautiful color.If I had to compare the two it would be pretty hard to say one is better than the other. However, that will not be a problem since they are two different instruments.
Features
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
Great Pickups. I can go with pretty much any style and sound I like.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Easy to control. Of course the neck is much longer so my fingers will get much faster moving up and down the frets.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Again tone is good. I play with fingertips, thumb, and picks. All sound different and I can really tweak in a sound that I like.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
All paint and finishes were superb. And that really surprised me considering the condition of the outer shell of the shipping box. Not a scratch on it.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
The only thing I would have liked it for Fender to be on the neck. I doubt most people would be able to tell the difference.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Unlike my Fender Stratocaster which I had to set intonation and tweak the neck or do a setup to get it going good. I haven't done anything to the Bass except tune it and play it. Its been over 30 years since I played a Bass Guitar and it played just like an old friend coming home. About as good as it gets.
