About what I expected
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
I've had this guitar for a couple weeks now and have put a decent number of hours on it already. I love how the guitar looks. It's a poly finish, which doesn't bother me. Certainly not for the money. Out of the box it was set up reasonably well and played decently, but will be set up when I get around to changing strings. The fretwork was good with no sharp ends or obviously high frets. This was my first vibrato-equipped guitar, and I was actually surprised with how well it stays in tune. It's not for dive bombs, but used within reason it returns to pitch pretty well. My biggest complaint is that the bridge pickup is super bright. I believe this guitar has 1 meg pots. I'm planning on switching them out for 500k pots and maybe changing the capacitor in the lead circuit. I'll probably upgrade the rest of the electronics while I'm at it and replace the pickups eventually, but I bought it with the intention of upgrading so no big deal. That's part of the fun.

Exactly what I wanted!
What is your opinion of this product?
Awesomely sweet. I am not a 'hipster' or any of that, fact is I'm old. I l so had no idea who J. Mascis was, but I love playing old Ventures tunes, and this guitar is sweet. Great tone, love then neck, it feels like an old guitar that has been played a lot,very smooth. I was worried about the size, shape, and possition of the tremolo, but it is perfect. Wish I had bought one sooner, worth every penny.

Exceeded Expectations Greatly!!
What is your opinion of this product?
I haven't owned a Squier product since my second guitar 23 years ago and since then, unfortunately, Squier has been synonymous with that of GMC products from the 90's, just about worthless. That being said, I didn't have very high expectations when purchasing this as a backup and as something with a tremolo; but, due to the cost, J. Mascis is an idol, and the other reviews, I decided to go for it.... And boy was I happy I did!!
The quality far exceeded my expectations. This is constructed just as well as any MIM Fender, if not better! The paint is unblemished and the frets are trimmed perfectly (no need to file any down). The only problem I had, right of the box, was the 3 way toggle was a bit loose and was popping when switching pickups. I fiddled around with it for awhile and fixed that problem.
The feel of this guitar is great. My main guitar is a Bonamassa Les Paul and I love the thickness of that neck. This one is a bit thinner of course, but still has decent girth to it. The controls seem fine. The tremolo is great and the guitar stays in tune really well.
The tone is awesome on this!! There are so many tones you can create with it. The pickups are surprisingly hot (J. Mascis did oversee the creation of them), almost as hot as the burstbuckers in my Les Paul. The bridge pickup is nice and bright, both pickups together are surprisingly thick and a bit dark, and the neck pickup is almost in between the two other settings. When using the slider, the tone gets really jazzy and smooth, almost compressed sounding. I totally dig the sound!
The paint looks fine to me. I personally like the gold and aged white look. The satin neck is also a nice touch!
I think the value of this guitar is way under! I would expect to pay the MSRP of around $600 or more for this. It's built really well and seeing how I didn't want to spend thousands of dollars on an American made J. Mascis Jazzmaster, this is a great backup that will probably be used for more than just that.
Action was good out of the box. I like my action a little high and this was just about right. I installed a set of heavier strings (it comes with 10s, I use 11s) and it handled it very well. I thought I would have to adjust the action, but nope!!

Squier is stepping up their game with their vintage series!
From what I can see and feel, and having owned and played other squier instruments, this guitar is very sturdy. Take off the Squier logo and I could've been fooled into thinking it was a Fender model. That said, the tuning pegs were not to my taste, but that is nit-picking.
This has yet to be determined. I tend to judge that over a 5 year period or so. Since I have owned quite a few guitars and play live, that is usually the time things start to fall apart. But so far, so good..
Your general opinion of this product.
As I stated, take off the Squier logo and you could fool me that this was a Fender standard Jazzmaster. The finish and J. Mascis' specs make this a phenomenal buy.
For sure this is not a telecaster. It being a Jazzmaster, it is a little heavy. Liken it to how an Gibson SG in comparison to a Les Paul. There is a significant wieght difference. Though that has always been apart of it's sound as with the Les Paul. The Neck is absolutely brilliant. Much more truer to Fender necks than Squier necks that say graced the Jagmaster.
The tone is another astonishing value you get for the guitar. Everything from the surf-rock sound that made the Jazzmaster famous to Telecaster like tone that leaves the player with varying sounds at their hands and one versatile guitar..
The finish on the guitar is what first attracted me to it. I was in the market for a Jazzmaster and once I did the research on how the guitar came together and the components it had, the finish was just icing on the cake.
The action out of the box was terrific. I had no complaints. I tuned up, plugged in, and was ready to go.

Better than you would imagine!
The guitar has very nice dressed frets that you would expect from a much higher dollar guitar, the action is decent and the overall tone of the guitar is above average.The guitar has a wide range of sounds and I have yeat to try somthing with it that doesn't sound good. Most guitars of this price range are soley beginner guitars or intermediate. This guitar is totally giggable and stays in tune very well.
The guitar is well built and is very durable for the practicing musician.
Your general opinion of this product.
I like it so well I have considered purchacing a second just to have in case.
The neck is very well finished and the fret job is above average for a "factory" piece. The jumbo frets are nice and well dressed.
The overall tone of this guitar is excellant and as said above exceeds all of my expectations of a guitar with this price tag. You could easily put another zero on it because it plays like a thousand dollar guitar. The pickups have a variety of great tones ranging from jazzy to full on punk rock.
The finnish on this guitar is splended and the pick guard is a nice option (gold anodized aluminum)!!!!
The action and set up on the guitar was above average.
