FDP Forum / The Squier Forum / Ordered a '77 Vintage Modified Jazz bass

Contributing Member

I've been wanting a bass for a while to replace my ancient Hofner Beatle bass copy. (My dad says he found it in a pawn shop in 1969, he's not sure how old it really is)

Anyway, I really like the look of the amber '77, so I scooped one up from Sweetwater. At $349, it should be more than enough to noodle on for a non-bass player like myself.

Reviews to follow!

Man, wow! I am!

Best $349 I ever spent!

This thing is really alive, the pickups sound great, and it really sings. It's hard to explain, but it really has some complex overtones and resonation going on.

Craftsmanship is top-notch, and everything was perfectly set up from Sweetwater.

Really pleased, and highly recommended!

I've been very happy with all my modern Squiers in the higher end of their lineup (all I buy).

Works as advertised, and honestly inexpensive like I'd expect bolt-on guitars to be.

Glad to hear this worked out so well!

Like Rob, it’s been my experience with the upper end of the Squier line. I prefer those to the MIM Fenders offered.
