I was pleasantly surprised
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
I bought this Squier (from AMS) as a spare for practice at home. I was pleasantly surprised at the appearance, workmanship and quality of components of this bass. The sound is pretty good with the P + J pickup combo giving a variety of tonal colors depending on how you mix the two pups with the volume controls. The bass boost is a nice feature that adds some "fat" to the bottom end to augment the tone control. In my opinion, this is a good bass for the price whether it's your main instrument a backup or as a second bass in a different tuning. Just realize that while the electronics are pretty good, they are not top shelf quality AND you should probably carry an extra 9 volt battery in case the internal battery dies. Another plus is that you can mod this baby if you don't like some components. I swapped out the tuners, added strap locks and replaced the bridge with a Fender Hi Mass - not because the originals were cheap (or bad) but because I like to mod my basses just for fun.

Needed work
What is your opinion of this product?
I usually do surgery on everything I buy. When I took the neck off I could see the bottom of the screw holes in the neck. Not good! If you can see the bottom the holes are WAY too shallow. The holes were maybe a 1/4" to 3/8" deep. If you want the neck to stay on you better drill them deeper and buy longer screws. Newer models may be better.

Cheap price, amazing bass!
What is your opinion of this product?
After I had opened the box once I got home from work, I couldn't take my eyes off of it. I bought the transparent red option with the black pick guard. It was already set up and ready to play out of the box. I have never played anything better. Compared to a BC Rich Beast Bass I once owned, this thing blows it out of the water in terms of playability. It doesn't match up in tone with its active EMGs, but it still sounds incredible. Best bass out there for the price.

Very nice especially for the money
What is your opinion of this product?
Plays nice right out of the box. I am surprised of the fit and finish for a $200 bass.

its all in the tone
only qualms about this bass is the fret work the edges need to be finished better there are too many sharp frets sticking out.
what makes this bass stand out is the jaguar body and the active electronics. the bass boost is fantastic and lends its self to infinite tone variations. only request please finish the fret work.
the tone is amazing and is the star of this bass.
Your general opinion of this product.
overall it is an excellent bass big complaint is the fret work. the action i like close to the fret board with no buzzing is attainable it will need pro set up. but once that is done this bass does sing very well rating 4 only because of fret work.
the bass weight is just right for me the neck is a delightful element to play on. versatile controls.
any tone you want to get, you will.
great finish nut, neck, and body very well done.
action you always have to set up to your liking. but was high out of the box.

Vintage Modified Jaguar
It is unbeatable for the price. It needs a set up out of the box and you'll never get the playabilily of a higher end instrument but it's decent and solidly built.
THe combination of the jazz and P bass pickups. THe combination sounds spectacular but it is great to be able to switch between the low rock growl of the P bass pick up and the poppy snap of the Jazz pickup.
THe tone is the best feature of this instrument. It simply sounds spectacular.
Your general opinion of this product.
It feels good and plays decent. You wil never get that magic action found on higher end instruments and you will still get fret buzz even with higher action but nothing that translates via the pickups.
It's a jazz style neck and very narrow at the nut. Great for smaller hands, students, females, and kids but stil usable for adults.
Dark on the P pickup and bright on the jazz which are both good but the combination of the two is really excellent.
I got the sunburst and it looks !really! good. it is a very cool design.
Not good. One of the other reviews recommended a quarter turn on the neck out of the box and I would concur. It definitelty requires a setup out of the box.

Great Bass for the money
Solid instrument. Bridge a little light weight, but adequate. Nice tuners.
I like the combo of Jazz and P-Bass pick ups. Wasn't expecting active electronics. I would rather not have to baby sit a battery. Had to go on you tube to get a overview of the control knobs. Did not come with any sort of manual.(Volumes were obvious)
I have only really played it unplugged so far. Sounds like a Bass...
Your general opinion of this product.
I think this is a great Bass for what you pay. Intonation was very good out of the box. Stays in tune well. Looks great.
I'm a guitar player, not a bass player, but it feels as good as any Bass I've ever played. (I have a Steinberger and a Gibson EB-O SS)
I have only played it unplugged or though a guitar amp at low volume. I can't imagine I will be disappointed when I use it for recording.
Finish was done very well. I've seen worse finishes on Les Pauls. Very flat. High gloss. No orange peel.
Action was a touch high. 1/4 turn on the truss rod seemed to do the trick. Truss rod was very easy to adjust.

GOOD BASS FOR THE PRICE AND JAGUAR STYLE
I THINK THE QUALITY IS GOOD FOR THE PRICE
I THINK THAT THE BEST FEATURE IS THE SOLID WEIGHT, MAYBE WITH OTHER PICKUPS COULD BE A BEST SOUND
THE SOUND IS GOOD BUT I'D PREFER INSTEAD THE PICKUPS INSTALLED COULD SOUND BETTER WITH ALL JAZZ BASS PICKUPS STYLE
I THINK THAT IT FEEL A LITTLE HEAVY IN THE ACTION, THE NECK IS SLIM AND CAN MOVE EASY TROUGH IT BUT MAYBE WITH OTHER KIND OF STRING COULD IMPROVE, THE CONTROLS ARE OK
SOUND A LITTLE BRIGHT, AS I SAID ABOVE MAYBE WITH ALL JAZZ BASS PICKUPS STYLE COULD BE SOUND GOOD FOR MY STYLE
I LIKE THE CRIMSON CLEAR FINISH, DOESN'T LOOKS TOO MODERN LIKE THE OTHER PRESENTATION
THE AUCTION IS GOOD FOR THE PRICE,

Nice lil'l Bass for the money
Seems pretty solid, time will tell..
A nice light body, thin neck and active circuitry at a very affordable price. Back in the day you paid a lot more for a lot less.
The Active circuitry allow for a diverse range of sounds straight from the bass.
Now it's set up, it does play very well. Nice fast neck, very light.
Tone is probably better than you would expect from a bass at this price.
Very nice
'Orrible. It needed some serious work with the supplied Allan wrenches for fix it. Took me about 5 mins to fix. In the end it's well worth spending the time. Not sure if this would take a heavy set of strings as it's close on buzzeyness.
