Fender Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass SS 4-String Bass Guitar (Discontinued)

90 out of 100. Incorporating 400+ ratings and reviews.


Squier is a sub-brand of guitar manufacturer giant Fender, they make affordable versions of Fender’s popular instruments, including bass guitars.

The Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass SS was their most popular bass in the sub $200 price range, thanks to it being easy on the eyes, ears and more importantly easy on your wallet.

This bass is essentially a more compact version of their popular Jaguar bass, carrying over the same styling offset body and old school playability via its curved 9.5″ radius fingerboard – while having a shorter scale length of 30″ that makes overall playability easier.

Adding to its versatility, it has both a split-single coil and a single coil pickup.

With its combination of quality looks, sound and performance, this stylish looking short scale bass guitar is highly recommended.
