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.

What is your opinion of this product?
I have been playing for a little over 40 years and decided to just get a base that would be simple and inexpensive. It is definitely more than I thought it would be the tone out of the pickups is really sweet very clear.

I got my 4 string squire jazz bass 8 months ago and the action is awesome, I have to change my strings to a medium gauge elixir. Sounds like a monster.

Beast of a bass
What is your opinion of this product?
Bought this bass last week. Out the box only had to tune strings. Really plays itself. feels really good. My hands are small Fender jazz modified fit my hands like a glove. I see a lot of professionals playing this bass. Its a steal for the price. Trust me you will not be disappointed no matter what level your at. This is a great bass made in Indonesia. Just trust me it funks, rocks slides, glides. Anything you want from it. The candy apple red is really beautiful. I will never sell this bass.

Get one!!
What is your opinion of this product?
Is this going to be a Fender Custom Shop bass? Nope.. Can you make it damn near one? Yeppers!! I have two, a 4 and a 5 string. Replaced the Pickups, pots, jacks and bridges. I am no luthier and was able to do this myself. Sure it will cost you a few bucks to do it. Shop around and do it bit by bit. My two basses are gigged with and have been recorded with. Trust me, if the engineer thought these basses and mods sucked.. He would have zero problem telling me. On the 4 I did replace the tuners but only because I wanted an extender key, so I figured I would do them all. I could have have bought a Fender Jazz, but I would probably replace everything on that too!! Besides.. The colors on Fender Jazzes suck and forget about a block inlay...

Exceeded my expectations
What is your opinion of this product?
The overall quality of this instrument is amazing for the price. Great neck joint, amazing finish and good fretwork. The pickups are passable but I will upgrade to play live. 2 volumes and a generic tone control work for me since I don't use onboard eq on any of my basses. The bridge is a bit thin and I will replace with something that has more mass. Absolutely a great beginner bass and with a few upgrades this will be awesome for a working musician at a fraction of a US made Fender.

Love my bass!
What is your opinion of this product?
The Squier Vintage Modified basses can really hold their own! This is a beautiful bass to behold, sounds killer, and is a great buy if you can't afford a Fender bass. I had a great purchasing experience with American Musical. My order came fast and intact.
