UTILIZATION

Fender released the Jaguar bass a few years ago. I thought it was incredible - the styling is great, the pickups were very nice, and it played easily. I didn't want to spend the money on it, however - it was around $750 at my local store. So when Fender announced a Squier, low cost version, I was excited. The result disappointed me, but only slightly - I wanted the full scale neck. This shorter scale is cool, I mean, the original Jaguar guitars had a shorter scale. But I was hoping for something that felt like a Jazz Bass, sounded like a P-Bass, and looked like a Jaguar. 2 out of three ain't bad, right?

SOUNDS

The pickups are very nice. I can get J and P sounds out of it, and they are very clear. The bridge pickup could stand to be a bit punchier, but overall, they are good-sounding pickups, with a broad array of possible sounds.

OVERALL OPINION

This bass would be a great beginner bass, or good for someone with smaller stature. I was wanting a full scale bass, so I've got to admit some disappointment, but overall the Jaguar Bass from Squier is still pretty cool.
