Product Description

With its offset waist and contoured body, the Squier Vintage Modified Jazzmaster gives a nod to its iconic forbearer, but it has much more going for it that makes it truly "modified."

The top-loading hard tail bridge features string saddles that are adjustable for intonation and designed to have a 9.5" radius when sitting flat on the bridge plate. The bridge is anchored at the rear of the plate while the front sits atop height adjustment screws that can be raised or lowered to achieve desired string height/action, while subtle adjustment at the rear (anchor) achieves the correct bridge angle. Custom Duncan Designed(TM) pickups offer tones from glassy smooth to jangly rockin' rhythm crunch, with a vintage-tone neck pickup and higher-output bridge pickup. Other features include '62 Jazz Bass(R) stacked concentric volume/tone controls, vintage-style tuners and a comfortable one-piece maple neck.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Squier products.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (7 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "GREAT Value."
Overall: This guitar is a joy to play. Now, I had to do some set up after I received it. It needed a neck adjustment and an intonation tweak, but once that was done, all was well. The only nitpick I have about it now is the frets need a little smoothing out on the edges. But for the money, this baby is a hell of a bargain. The pickups have a great boldness and clarity, and the controls give you a huge array of tones. It's got a great look, and the butterscotch finish is fabulous. Looks great with the tinted neck, which really feels good to navigate. I say check this one out!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Unbelieveable!"
Overall: So... I was looking for a backup guitar for my Fender Jaguar. I have gone though Vintage guitars, Gretsch, Strats etc... I have spent way more and I have received way less! I still can't believe how this guitar is out of the box! Great neck, great pickups, just great all around! I had a '62 American RI Fender Jazzmaster. It had a shim under the neck from the factory. It was nice... but it wasn't $1600 nice. I replaced it with a '03 MIJ Jaguar. I still think the MIJ's are the best value in the Fender line. But, this Squier is a close second! With a few upgrades it will be on par with the MIJ, for a 1/3 of the cost. Don't get me wrong... as is it's great! The hardtail is a nice change from the mostly stable standard tremolo. The only complaints I have are esthetics. That and the high E is a little wide stanced but that's nothing I can't fix. I never EVER thought I would own a Squier. I have owned pedigree guitars of all kinds. As a touring, working musician, I want guitars that I can play and not see them depreciate before my eyes. Also... heaven forbid... if one is lost or stolen I'm not out a small fortune. I am still stuned by how nice this is for the cash. They could have charged more. I predict that this will be one of those odd sleepers that become more valuable over time. Pick one up while you can!
