Squier Vintage Modified Jazz V 5-String Electric BassSquier
The 5-string Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass V's offset-waist body and an ultra-slim, fast-action maple neck make this a truly outstanding instrument in its class. Although its soft maple body design and overall appearance are clear nods to the past, the Vintage Modified Jazz Bass V also incorporates some futuristic elements, such as high-end cosmetic touches and sizzling Fender-designed Jazz Bass single-coil pickups. The value-packed 5-string Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass V is an excellent entry/intermediate-level instrument for any bassist.
Bass guitars are big and that can mean heavy, too. Supremely comfortable whether you're seated or standing, the Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass V comes with the distinctive "offset-waist" body, but it's made from maple, which is resonant, but relatively light, which you'll appreciate after several hours up on stage. And with its classic finish, your Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass V will command the eyes - as well as the ears - of your fans!
Made from solid maple, with a maple fingerboard, the neck on Squier's Vintage Modified Jazz Bass V is designed to deliver a smooth and fluid playing experience. The 20 medium-jumbo frets provide you with added playing comfort, so you can continue for hours without hand fatigue. A fast-playing neck is vital when you're holding down the bass line, and Squier understands that. The Vintage Modified Jazz Bass V features a neck and fretboard that ensure you'll never want to put it down.
Condition: A minor repair was made to the bridge of the bass, which left two tiny scratches on the bridge, as shown in the close up picture of the bridge. The bass looks excellent and plays great. The neck is smooth, straight and fast and the bass plays great with the current set-up! All electronics are in perfect working order. Back of the headstock is stamped "used" and original serial # has been replaced with a new one.

About our set-ups: We do our best to accurately describe the current set-up and playability of each guitar. However, due to temperature and humidity changes the guitar may experience while in transit, it's possible for the neck and body to slightly "adjust" along the way. After all, guitars are primarily wooden instruments that are highly susceptible to their environment. By the time you receive the guitar, un-box it and tune it up, you may find that it needs a slight adjustment to get it back to the set-up specs that we originally described in our listing. Please keep this in mind before purchasing.
