Product Description

Is "funkify" a word? It is now, baby, thanks to Squier's retro-inspired Vintage Modified Jazz Bass guitar! This handsome natural-finish bass features a soft Maple body and 1-piece Maple neck with sharp-looking black binding and block inlays on the 20-fret Maple fingerboard. That soulful sound emanates from a pair of single-coil Duncan Designed Jazz Bass pickups; other features include chrome hardware and machine heads, a 3-ply pickguard and a 4-saddle chrome bridge.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Squier products.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (61 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "A Great Bass for Under 3 Bills !!"
Sound: The Duncan Design pick ups are pretty hot for just being passive.I am able to coax a wide variety of sounds out of this bass,from the familiar Jazz Bass growl to a Precision tone to an almost Rickenbacker-like tone with a lot of treble & punch.It's all just finding the right combination of p/u volumes & tone control,but it's a very clean sounding bass,even with factory strings.I've read several reviews where people have changed them & gotten a better sound.Slap it,finger it or pick it,it's all good. Feature: There are no special features,it's a straight forward bass guitar.It would have been nice to include a gig bag as another reviewer suggested,but at under $300,I can afford to buy a "real" case for it. All materials & components are tight,solid & work flawlessly out of the box.I really like the maple neck & the body is very solid as well.It has the weight of a much more expensive instrument.Also I wish they had a 5 string version. Ease of Use: It's a bass guitar,either you know how to play it or you don't.There is no manual,you have two pick up volume controls & a tone control. The reason I gave it a 9 is because like other reviewers,I found the string action to be a little high,but not unplayable.This may discourage a person if they are just learning on this bass,but it's something that can be adjusted.Do it yourself if you know what you doing or most guitar shops in my area will do a complete set-up for $30-$40. Quality: This is a solid bass,the one I got was pretty much perfect,except one of the tuning keys is a little loose,but it doesn't cause it to go out of tune.Nice finish,very smooth,fret work is good,all knobs tight & smooth.The chrome parts are plated so after a few years of steady gigging they may start to look funky,but that's just a guess.(I plan to take it to most of my gigs,I always take 2 basses.)The binding on the neck is really nice so I wish the "block inlays" weren't just painted on,but hey for under 3 bills...and from the stage it looks like inlays.The quality control seems to be pretty good from the factory.Overall it's a very well made instrument for the money & would be a solid performer for any gigging musician. Value: For the money,you are not going to find a more solid or better sounding bass.I'd say after getting my hands on it,if I'd paid $400 or more for it I'd still be satisfied. Manufacturer Support: No problems,but I figure it a division of Fender so I trust the support would be satisfactory. The Wow Factor: This is a solid bass,the one I got was pretty much perfect,except one of the tuning keys is a little loose,but it doesn't cause it to go out of tune.Nice finish,very smooth,fret work is good,all knobs tight & smooth.The chrome parts are plated so after a few years of steady gigging they may start to look funky,but that's just a guess.(I plan to take it to most of my gigs,I always take 2 basses.)The binding on the neck is really nice so I wish the "block inlays" weren't just painted on,but hey for under 3 bills...and from the stage it looks like inlays.The quality control seems to be pretty good from the factory.Overall it's a very well made instrument for the money & would be a solid performer for any gigging musician. Overall: I'm by no means a guitar snob or someone who can afford high end guitars,but I always considered Squire a starter or entry level brand,this bass has changed my mind.I have 4 other basses that I paid $400-$950 for so this bass is a helluva a deal to me.I've been playing bass for over 30 yrs & I play in a local country/rock band that does about 75 to 80 gigs a year so I buy my guitars to play not just to collect dust.I mainly play a Dean 5 string fretless but always take another bass as a spare or to change my sound on certain songs.I have stared to pick this bass up on a few more songs just because it's fun to play. I don't regret buying this bass & would buy it again.A Fender re-issue isn't in my budget right now,but this one is.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Absolutely great deal!"
Sound: I actually went to a few local music stores and played this bass guitar. It sounded and played better than many of the higher priced guitars from various other brands I tried out. Feature: On the guitars I played in house at my local music stores and with the guitar my wife bought me from Zzounds,the action was nice and the neck fit in my hands, comfortably. You can switch from the front to the back pick up for different tones. Ease of Use: Has a very smooth action and playable neck for people with short stubby fingers. (Like me) You plug it in, tune it and play. Quality: This guitar is built very well. I have not had any problems so far and I have had this for better part of a year. It has been played alot as I now use it as my primary bass guitar. Value: This guitar out performed bass guitars that were double it's price. It is extremely well made and sounds great, especially for all the more you pay for it. Absolutely worth the money you spend for it. Manufacturer Support: never needed support so I can't rate it. The Wow Factor: I like the way this thing looks. But looks only go so far. This thing shines in the way it plays and sounds...it doesn't look cheap. Overall: I was looking for a cheap bass guitar to use as a spare. What I found was a great bass guitar for an unbelievable price. This guitar plays really well and sounds good. It doesn't look like or play like a bass guitar for under $300. I played quite a few different basses at several different local music stores and this thing out performed many of those basses that were way more expensive. It is definately worth what you pay for it. I would buy another one in a heartbeat, if I needed it. I expect to use this for years to come.
