pappabass's review"Its no G&L but great for the money"

Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass Special
1. You can not compare a Squier to a G&L or American Fender. I was looking for a beater/practice bass & refused to touch a Squier. Then I saw the Jag. Could not put it down. I owned a Fender Jazz that was better, but this particular Squier Jaguar VM special is better than a mex Fender P I owned. I must have lucked out on a good one. This one has the active bass boost. Fender rep said that the VM series are the better of the Squires. I get compliments on the looks and the sound. I even played it an audition a couple of weeks ago. Hey, can't complain, it stays in tune, looks good, $150.00 pawn shop find.

MGR/Billy's review"Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Special"

Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass Special
I saw pictures of this that Fender leaked about 6 months in advance. I couldn't wait to get my hands on one of these!

There are a few different Squier Jaguar basses; there is a $299 version with the two stacked pots similar to a 60s Fender Jazz bass and then there are three $199 versions, one with a P/J setup, one with a humbucker and then a shortscale model.

I picked up the $199 P/J version in transparent red.

It looks cool. The instrument holds tune well and you can get a nice setup with it.

I am not a fan of the electronics. There is a 9volt built in boost. I wished they'd have canned it and used the Duncan Design pickups that are in the other Squiers.

Weight felt a bit heavy and awkward.

Well to get an instrument out the door for $199 you need to take a few shortcuts. The body is made of Agathis which I don't think is a good choice for a bass. The maple neck feels like a P-bass neck and also it is finished in a very thin satin coating.

You know it's not going to be 'the one' but for a $199 it's a fun bass to play around with.

I put 9 and not 10 because we see the knots in the wood through the patent ... it's beautiful but I wonder if the sound and the longevity of the instrument ... if the finish is impeccable: no complaints at all, she is beautiful.


Handling very easy. I am very attentive to that. When I try an instrument, it should not be any discomfort if not, I do not. The body is long enough (to get used a bit). Weight distribution is good and it is rather slight.

I have recently and for sound, I would see maybe my opinion but for now I find that the instrument itself sounds good. In addition, the particular configuration of the electronics allows great versatility.


I can make a felted, the slap and the very big sound that stir the room and give the impression that the amp goes off: j'adoooore. That said, I currently have some difficulty to make the same sound twice but I think it's because I lack of practice on the instrument. Excellent dynamic instrument that has "good background" anyway. I put 9.


I use it since yesterday and I tried lots of instruments including MusicStore in Cologne:

Ibanez (models 200 to 400 euros): bof, not to my taste.
Fender Precision and Jazz: I'm sorry, I think it's overrated, and then I get there too.
Fame (brand MusicStore): very very blah.
sterling by musicman ray 34: very very very good! ... but at 890 euros: o (
Musicman SUB: Excellent but too typical slap for me.
Flea bass: heuu .... I found it sad ... on ampeg yet'm surprised.
I also tried other squier but bof (other than a vintage modified precision was top).

So it was posted to 259 euros, with 10% because it balances. I arrive at the checkout (one floor below) and the vendor suddenly found that I had not seen. Ultimately there is agreement for 199 euros.

The value for money is already excellent at 259 euros ... that we could buy more at this price that is not a lamentable wheelbarrow?

Then to 199 euros, is unbeatable.

Yesterday I made this choice then it would be a shame to regret today.

A less powerful slam from 800 to 2000 euros without a raised eyebrow, the choice I would do without hesitation.
