2013 Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass 70's

This bass guitar is nearly perfect...

Apart from one thing - it's left handed.

As you know there are many affordable brands out there - and a lot of very cheap and very expensive ones. On the whole, the cheap guitar brands are OK for electric 6 string guitars, but fall down horribly on Bass guitars. Not sure why, but the necks are nearly always bent! Horribly. Squier, of course come from a parent company with a lot of knowledge of making excellent guitars - Fender. And this is a great copy of a 1970's Fender Jazz Bass guitar - with some up to date modifications.

Another site says this: "This one is considered by many as an impressive bass for its price, we even gave it the top spot in our list of affordable bass guitars. However Squier is not yet done, upgrading this popular model for 2013. The soft maple body retains the shape and look of the previous model, and it is paired with a maple neck. The upgraded version has the neck carved into a slim "C" profile with a vintage-tint gloss finish. Another important change that the 2013 model brings are two Fender-designed pickups, replacing the Duncan designed JB101 pickups of the previous version. This bass is available in Olympic White and Natural finish, and has a left handed version called the Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass ‘70s Left-Handed."

This probably sold originally for around £350 brand new - so the starting price is a gift!

And this is what we have here - It is nearly perfect - a couple of VERY minor scratches - it is in better condition than my last "new" guitar I purchased (no names). Although the name is "70s" this is nothing but modern - a great gloss neck and silky gloss fingerboard and great sounding pickups.

If you are interested, do drop me a line and I'll answer all your questions! Toodle Pip!
