Wow!

Fisheth , 09.03.2015
So, I'm really impressed with this bass so far. Delivery and packing from Thomann was excellent as per usual and I've had no problem with them in the past. I can imagine support would be good also.

Onto the bass. So this is my review of the Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass V. I originally bought it as a backup for another bass which I own (B.C Rich WMD Widow 5) and to be honest, as soon as I opened the box I thought "This is heavy" but in reality it's slightly heavier than the Widow, but it's not too heavy or not too light. It's somewhere in the middle. Which is pretty good for someone that doesn't want to deal with weight being an issue. For me however, because of my back I can imagine it being an issue during long sets, but as my band is only playing half an hour it'll be fine.

The C shaped neck is really comfortable and the string spacing (18.5MM as opposed to the usual 19) isn't an issue for me and it feels great. As I'm able to get to each string without hitting another one that I didn't intend to by mistake. Feels comfortable for my average sized hands.

Soundwise is interesting. The reason why I gave it a three stars as opposed to the other five stars is because it isn't what I was expecting from a Jazz bass. It sounds very... Polite to be the word. It doesn't have that growl I was expecting from a Jazz bass, but it's manageable and it does sound good, articulate and has a ton of midrange. It's just not what I was expecting. The Duncan designed (Made offshore) pick-ups are fantastic.

All in all a very good bass. Especially for the less than three hundred pounds for the UK. Very good bargain. Can't wait to spend a bit more time with it.

Best value for money

01.04.2015
I needed a 5-string bass for a band i was in but did not want to spend a lot of money. A friend of mine recommended this product so i decided to check it out.

B-string was not floppy at all. Duncan designed pickups gave that classic jazz bass sound while fret and finishing job was top notch! The thing that impressed me more was that the bass was almost in tune and well factory set up, while thomann packaging was exceptional! two carton boxes plus bubbles made sure that the bass would arrive in excellent condition!

All and all the price i paid for this item should have been twice as much!

Very very pleased!
