Squier's Take on the '70s Fender Jazz Bass!

If you're shopping around for your first electric bass, then check out the Squier Vintage Modified '70s Jazz electric bass. This affordable beauty sports an attractive 3-ply black pickguard, a comfy soft maple body, a maple neck with 20 medium jumbo frets, a smooth and inviting black-bound maple fingerboard, a pair of Fender-designed Jazz Bass single-coil pickups, and tasteful chrome hardware. When it comes to guitars and basses, Squier is a great place to begin the journey of finding your perfect instrument to complement your style.

The Warm Sound of Soft Maple

As its name suggests, soft maple is softer than hard maple. It yields a slight push in the upper mid frequencies, which gives off a pleasant yet subtle brightness to your notes. Soft maple also tends to soften the low end a bit, so your tone won't get too fat unless you take advantage of your tone control on your amplifier EQ settings. This body's push on the upper mids makes it a great choice for playing licks and fills, if your fingers are itching for some melodic action.

Fender-designed Jazz Bass Single-Coil Pickups

Your ears and amplifier will love this bass's pair of Fender-designed Jazz Bass single-coil pickups. These two pickups take in and project a warm and welcoming tone perfect for jazz, but they also work well for rock and pop settings. You can use your independent volume controls to blend the desired mixture of each pickup to forge your output.

Addicting Maple Neck

This attractive bass features a maple neck and maple fingerboard to invite your fingers to travel. Maple necks yield a rounded brightness that adds a little bite to your sound. All 20 medium jumbo frets get nice and close to each string for you to warm your fingers up on. The C shape profile makes for a comfortable feel as your hand changes positions up and down the fingerboard. Classy black block fingerboard inlays mark your fret positions.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (14 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "VM 70's J Bass"
Overall: Excellent instrument. Owned it for about a year. I put Dimarzio Ultra Jazz Bass Pickups in it. This was just a personal preference as the stock pickups are fine. The service from zzounds was also excellent. This is my seventh bass and I use it more than the other six (Pedulla, Tune, Kramer, Fender and Ibanez). I also have the Squier VM Fretless J Bass another fine instrument. People should stop looking at the name on the headstock and judge the instrument on how it performs!!!!!!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Bass, Good sound"
Overall: Let me start off by saying i have not made anything more then some bridge adjustments to my bass, it is in need of truss rod adjustments but even so the intonation is pretty damn close to how it should be. THE TONE! its got the almost Geddy /joes garage zappa tone with its own colors too it, the necks got a fat round mellow tone, the bridge is bright and gives a great jaco sounding result. Very well setup bass nice feel and the neck is a DREAM. i am very much happy with the bass and believe the soft maple body makes a huge impact in terms of the tone this baby has compared to most basses in this price range. The only problem i could point out about this bass is one of the 4 neck bolts on the back of the body is screwed in crooked and the neck is slightly offset from the body in the neck pocket. Nothing majorly wrong, tuners hold there own and i rarely have to make any adjustments, but i will be changing the bridge, and pickups out of this bass. Hope this review helps and that others may enjoy this bass like i have :)
