Squier’s most versatile Jaguar bass model is even more versatile now, with the extended range of the Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass V Special five-string model. You get all the sharp looks, fantastic tone and great features of its four-string brother, now with the addition of an earth-shaking low B string.
Features include a sleek offset-waist body, slim fast-action maple neck with “modern C” profile, 9.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets, booming Fender-designed split single-coil Precision Bass V middle pickup and growling Fender-designed single-coil Jazz Bass V bridge pickup, active bass-boost circuit for extra low-end power, three-ply black pickguard and four black plastic control knobs (middle pickup volume, bridge pickup volume, master tone, active bass boost circuit), vintage-style five-string bridge with five single-groove saddles, and vintage-style tuners. Available in Black, Crimson Red Transparent and Three-color Sunburst.

Overall opinion of this bass considering the price point.
PROS: Value 10. Quality 10. Tone 10. Fit and Feel 10. No need to second guess this product, it's a hit!
CONS: No left handed version available. They did not consider the left handed population. We have needs too. Requesting a 5 string Squier Jazz or Jaguar Bass, active or passive. Trust me there is a community of us out here and a market for us! Listen to your customers! I would prefer to do a review on a bass that I own.
