fredolee16's review"Fender sound without broke my wallet"

Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass '77
I use to fix, buy, sell or trade instruments basses and some bass equipment for hobbie. But off course, I always have my personal arsenal. I really love two sounds. One is the percussive Musicman Stingray sound and the other is the classic Fender Jazz bass sound. For my hands passed four MIM jazz basses, two USA jazz basses, theree MIJ jazz basses and off course, lot of Squiers. Yes, I write a lot but when you have the opportunity to own or try many basses, then you can compare fair. I start telling you that this is not a USA bass. You will find some cosmetics details in some of this basses that you should not find in a USA bass but this is not the rule. I saw many high end basses with tons of terrible details. In terms of paint my bass was OK but not perfect. About the settings, factory action was OK but I love low action so I made my personal setup at home. I can have the low action that I want and have no fret buzz at all. This bass is very light but not feel like a toy so I can play two hours without hurt my back. (I have back spasm). Body is light but doesn't have neck dive witch is great. The most beautiful part of this bass is the neck. Great feel and excellent fret job. Sound is fantastic. I change the strings to my preference too. I put the pickups a little closer to the strings and have a great output sound. I add a baddass bridge to it, but don't get me wrong, stock bridge works find and has good sustain. It was just my personal preference. IF you like the sound and feel of a fender jazz classic sound, and don't have problems like some friends of mine with the "Squier" name on the headstock (the sound is in your hands anyway), you should try this one before broke your wallet with a USA model.

UTILIZATION

For a low "entry level" is entitled to handle highway, which is well pleasing to access acute carefree. The body weight is weight, but it's still a bass Squier / Fender no surprises. The usage is very simple, juggling three knobs can get the sound you are looking for.

SOUNDS

As I said above, is juggling the knobs can get the sound you want. The difference between the bridge pickup and the neck pickup is one of the two to a more rich medium, which gives her a bit more rock. But one can easily Dub / Reggae by lowering the volume of the tone and neck pickup. I must say though that for a Jazz Bass, it a small significant rock character either by its look or sound. That said, it is very versatile but it can be a bit lack of roundness in the sound for those looking for a low typical Jazz. In any case it suits me perfectly because this is my first bass and I play almost everything (Dub, rock, pop ...)

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a little over a week. I tried other models in particular with micro Cort assets. They had potato may be more, but I found the handle and less enjoyable without his great personality. I am very satisfied with this Squier and I think I would do this choice without hesitation. It has a sound with a real personality and a great look. Be careful though because it seems that it is sometimes incorrectly set when shipped from the factory (welding problem). So be careful if you plan to buy new.
