Fender Squire Vintage Jazz Bass Review

Editor's scoreRead review

Adam’s Take – “I LOVE this bass.  I would have any bassist start on this bass if they were getting into the instrument.  It’s durable, it has the vintage look, it is fun to play and has the authentic Fender Jazz Bass sound.  And being a Squire model, you get the Squire price. With a preamp and/or compressor, no one would ever know it’s a squire.”

Fender Squire Vintage Jazz Bass Review
Fender Squire Vintage Jazz Bass Review


The Squire models are the most affordable and still authentic versions of the original Fender Jazz Bass, which is the quintessential sound for funk and jazz bass tones.  This bass guitar is solid maple including the body and neck. This bass looks and sound beautiful especially for the affordable price!

FAQ Frequently Asked Questions

Does it come ready to play?

This bass comes prestrung in the factory box.  With the exception of needing to tune the bass, this instrument comes ready to play!

Does the bass include a case or bag?

This bass does not include a case or bag.  I would suggest purchasing either a case or a stand for the bass.

  1. Adam’s Take

This bass is an amazing way to get up and running with a professional look and sound that is hard to come by at this price point.  If you are a professional or advance player there are models that have more control for intonation, better pickups and coils etc., but for this price point, it’s really hard to beat this bass.

+ Positives:
  • It’s an affordable Fender Jazz Bass!
  • Single Coil Pickups
  • 70’s Jazz/Funk Sound
  • Rich and crisp sound for the money
  • Smaller neck for easy movements
  • Iconic vintage look
- Negatives:
  • I don’t love the Squire models for professional players but great for beginners
  • Single coil pickups are not the best
  • Not currently shipping internationally
  • I think it sound better with a preamp and/or compressor
