After a two week break we are back this week with a review & demo of a 2011 Squier Vintage Modified Jazzmaster Special.
With its offset waist and contoured body the new Vintage Modified Jazzmaster gives a nod to its iconic forbearer but has other things going for it that make it truly 'modified'. The unique top-loading hard tail bridge features string saddles which are adjustable for intonation and designed to have a 9.5" radius when sitting flat on the bridge plate.
The bridge is anchored at the rear of the plate while the front sits atop height adjustment screws which can be raised or lowered to achieve desired string height/action while subtle adjustment at the rear (anchor) achieves the correct bridge angle.
A custom set of Duncan Designed pickups offers tones from glassy smooth to jangly rockin' rhythm crunch with a vintage toned neck pickup and higher output bridge pickup. Other features include '62 Jazz Bass concentric volume/tone controls, vintage style tuners and a comfortable one-piece maple neck.
