The Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar solidbody electric guitar gives you an authentically styled Jag with all the trimmings, at an amazing price. You'll love this guitar's comfortable and lightweight offset-waist body, easy-playing 24" scale, dual-circuit switching and controls, floating-vibrato bridge and eye-catching classic finish. Squire has armed the Vintage Modified Jaguar with a pair of Duncan Designed pickups that ring out with immense chimey tone, and can get nasty when you push 'em. The Jaguar has long enjoyed a cult-like status in Fender's lineup; now you can affordably tap into that mystique, with the Squire Vintage Modified Jaguar.
When you take the stage with the Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar, you're in for a real treat. With its offset-waist body and colorful vintage finish, this axe not only gives your fans something eye-popping to look at - it also sounds stunning, thanks to a pair of Duncan Designed Jaguar pickups that serve up a broad range of immense tone, from crystal cleans, to gritty grind. This Jag's sound is enhanced by its basswood body, while the lightweight, offset design makes short work of your marathon gigs. But don't think of this Jag as a stage-only axe. Those very same sonic and ergonomic qualities also make the Vintage Modified Jaguar ideal for spicing your recordings with scrumptious, unique six-string textures.
Speaking of tone, Squire has spec'd their Vintage Modified Jaguar with a pair of Duncan Designed Jaguar single-coils, routed through the unique Jaguar switching system - which includes comprehensive preset control over two distinct circuits. This produces a superb array of tone colors from crisp and clear to warm and chunky. You'll appreciate this Jag as a lead instrument. First off, bending strings on this baby is effortless. The Jaguar's distinctive slinkiness is facilitated by a 24" scale - noticeably shorter than the Strat's 25.5 inches - and even a tad shorter than the Les Paul's. Add to this 6105 frets and a 9.5" radius rosewood fingerboard, and you'll soon discover lead-playing abilities you never knew you had. Comfort? The Jag's offset-waist body design - radical when it was introduced - fits like a glove, whether you're seated or standing.
Squier's tapped into something really cool with their Vintage Modified series - hot mods of classic Fenders, all sporting top-shelf materials and components, with primo fit-and-finish. If you're a guitarist or bassist, you'll likely agree that vintage Fender guitars and basses are heavily lusted-after items, so it's great that Fender, in their infinite wisdom, have set their Squire subsidiary free to create hot-rodded and affordable versions of the classics.
