The Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar electric guitar has everything you'd come to expect from a company with such a proud tradition of building awesome renditions of some of the finest models in history. Boasting one of the most impressive tonal circuits ever included in an electric guitar, the Jaguar became the instrument of choice for many players who're regarded as musical pioneers - Kurt Cobain, John Frusciante, Johnny Marr, and Kevin Shields to name but a few. The Squier VM Jag provides the features that has made the Jaguar such a firm favourite for some of the most enigmatic guitarists in recent history, and delivers a truly awesome guitar at an affordable price.
The body features the eccentric Jaguar profile, with deep double-cutaways, offset waist and shapely curves. The body has been crafted using basswood, a lightweight tonewood that has a generous tonality. The Vintage Modified Jaguar' timbre has a bouncy quality that makes it very fun to play around with. Backing up the punchy midrange is a robust low-end rumble and topped off by a breathy high end. The slender Jaguar body profile is a rests snugly during performances, with weight distributed perfectly across the body and neck. The body is finished in a calming surf green, with a subtle layer of gloss polyester that adds protection from unwanted rubbing and premature wear. The body top around the pickups and controls is protected by a 3-ply white pickguard.
Fitted to the body is a slender C-shape maple neck, which provides a responsive playing feel. Married to the neck is a delightful rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 medium-jumbo sized frets that are decorated with white dot position inlays. The fingerboard has been shaped to a 9.5" fingerboard radius, which lends itself perfectly to smooth string bends and deft chord-transitions.
The Jaguar is renowned for its unique and innovative control system, featuring several switches that access integrated rhythm and lead circuits. Both of the single-coil pickups are Duncan Designed, which guarantee superb tonal quality, and feature classic styling. The plethora of switching options may seem somewhat daunting at first, but once you get used to it, you'll wonder how you ever got by without this setup.
A vintage-style tremolo bridge with non-locking floating vibrato allows you to infuse subtle vibrato and tremolo into your playing with the greatest of ease. The tremolo bar can be adjusted to suit your playing style, and the trem always returns to starting position efficiently. The vintage-style tuners uphold tuning integrity with the utmost precision.
The Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar electric guitar is a fantastic model for those who crave classic vibes, but also like the benefits that come with modern appointments.
