BASS Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass
Because of its short scale design, the Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass Special SS is an ideal instrument for those who don’t necessarily favor the length and breadth of normal-sized bass. Four inches shorter than the standard 34, this bass guitar moves quicker and can be much easier on players’ hands. The finish on maple neck won’t slow you down at all, and the body shape (the classic Jaguar design) gives this thing personal attitude and style from the jump.
Two pickups are housed in the Vintage Modified Jaguar; you’ve got the standard single-coil jazz bass pickup, which has more of a nasally, treble-favoring tone, and a vintage-style split single-coil precision bass pickup for a more growling, low-end sound. While there’s no pickup switch, you can control the output of each pickup via onboard volume knobs to blend into a tone of your liking.
Because of its affordable price and smaller scale design, this is an ideal bass guitar for those who are just starting out on the instrument. It’s also great for guitarists who primarily don’t play bass but need something for laying ideas down while remaining in their comfort zone.
