My second bass! - Reviews Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass

Value For Money : Excellent
See other opinions! ;)


- The handle is it nice?

I find it perfect! This is my second bass, before I played on a stagg who begins to date and I have to say that the race has absolutely nothing to do! That slides alone! The maple neck gives a good slamming her that I love.

- Access to acute is easy?

Faith yes, as any jazz bass on anything. After we must admit that this is not the most important when you play bass! ;)

- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?

No problem, it's a jazz bass so a fairly common form. Sitting, standing, it adapts to all! Level weight is a little heavy but it is not very disturbing when one is accustomed.

- Gets it easy to sound good?

So I do not have much basis for comparison as my old bass was really bad ... But this little Squier blew me his level! Some even say it is well worth the models Fender Made in Mexico! ;) The Duncan Design pickups are doing their job, you can easily get a well-rounded and more aggressive sound to our desire. I still feel that this bass is the foundation designed for slap: it unravels everything! The sound is ultra slamming and beautiful ... I love it!


- Are they suitable for your style of music?

It's simple: it is suitable for all! Except perhaps in very heavy metal ... and it remains to be seen! ;) This is a very versatile bass that fits all styles.

- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?

I use it mainly in connection to my sound card, so no effect. If I plug in my amp Stagg but rendering is not great ... I'm going to have to invest! : P

- What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "bold", ....)?

Most of the time it's simple: I put all the way! Actually I have not really tried to sound hacked but I'll try it! ;)

- What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?

I love everything! Which is rare for a bass in this range, as we remember that we are talking about a low less than 400 €!


- How long have you use it?

It will be two weeks now and I fell in love!

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?

Before I had a low Stagg range from a low pack + amp (imagine the quality ...). I hesitated between the Squier and SUB at Sterling. Unable to find the Squier, she immediately liked me.

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?

Pros: She is beautiful I must admit, it really makes you want to take it and play with. The finish is perfect, no surprises. The sound is great I think, feel ultra comfortable ... no complaints!

The -: The knobs have no markers, so that it's a bit hard to know where we are ... but is a detail!

- How would you rate the quality / price?

For low less than 400 €, it is excellent! So of course it can not be worth the Fender USA, but there is another budget! In any case I think I'll keep it a little while.

-With experience, you do again this choice?

Yes without hesitation!
