I picked up my vm jag about a week ago, and overall I'm satisfied. For the price, it's a heck of a guitar.
The stock bridge leaves a lot to be desired. It moves around easily, doesn't hold strings well and there's a good amount of buzz. I'll be swapping mine out soon for a mastery, but the mustang bridge is pretty affordable option. Depending on your preferences the pickups might be worth changing - coming from a Classic Player Jazzmaster as my main guitar, they're a little too treble-y for my taste.
All in all, if you're looking for a good, affordable guitar to mod, look no further.

You can not get any closer to the true Fender Jaguar than The Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar. It is an absolute gem for the money it is being sold for. I have had my Olympic White VMJ for quite some time now and love it. Sure it needed a good set up and I opted for 11s when it came to the strings. I spent another one hundred dollars for a professional set up by the best guitar technicians in the Boston - Winchester area, and for the money I have invested in this guitar I couldn't be happier. I will most likely purchase the VM Jazzmaster next and do the same thing with it. Buy one. You can't beat the quality and value of these guitars.

I had almost bought GF Jazzmaster guitar until I found out these VM Jaguar/Jazzmaster guitars had come out. I bought my Jaguar for around $200 as a blemished restock. It took some tinkering to set it up correctly, but once it was dialed in, this thing is fantastic. For the record, the pickups measure around 9K Ohms for the neck, and 11K Ohms for bridge, so they are definitely overwound. Plus, the volume/tone pots are 1M, so that also attributes to the brightness of the guitar, plus the tremolo and bridge. I even went ahead and installed a Fender mute since I was curious about using a mechanical mute. Search online to find out how to install. Needless to say, it require some drilling, about 1.5 inches into the guitar body with a 1/2" inch drill bit. It definitely added another dimension to the guitar. What else? Contrary to another review, basswood is not balsa wood. For record, Ernie Ball uses basswood for their high end guitars, so it is not a cheap guitar material. The FLOATING bridge does exactly what it is design to do, it rocks back and forth. Like I mentioned before, it does take some setting up to dial it in. I did install a shim to tilt the neck after putting on 11s and the mute (bridge needs to be raise a bit for the mute), but the 9 strings are fine. It is a really nice guitar, inexpensive enough to modify to your liking. I changed the pickup covers and pickguard just because pickguard was already predrilled for the mute and I didn't like original pickup covers with the logos I may add the locking tremolo, but I haven't decided yet on that. I can't wait to get a VM Jazzmaster as well. Overall, buy one and get it set up to your liking. If you can't do it yourself, take to a guitar-tech friend, or have it set professionally, it is well worth it. The guitar is also a testament to Leo Fender's genius for designing guitars for players.

Tone wise, this is exactly what I was looking for. I've been getting really into the surf and rockabilly sound of the late 50's/early 60's, so I decided to invest in what I thought was the ideal surf guitar: a Jaguar in surf green. These pickups are really incredible, and the treble/rhythm switching system is perfectly executed. I'm going to be buying a '63 Reverb/'59 Bassman combo soon to truly fulfill the tone and character of this guitar. The offset body is fairly new to me, a Gibson/Epiphone regular customer, but I love it nonetheless. The reaction to the new look and sound is very positive. It's such a smooth look and feel, no complaints.
I purchased this guitar in Pittsburgh a few days ago. I was on vacation and I didn't have my amp with me, so I just kind of played it unplugged in the hotel room. At first, it was great. Then I looked at the bridge and realized how easily the strings moved, how hard it was to stay in tune, and the crazy amount of buzz, even set up with fairly high action. But again, with no amp, I couldn't really hear how big of a difference this bridge made. I got home and immediately went to my amp before I had to tear down for a gig yesterday evening. At first I was just really excited to hear how surfadelic it was with my Sidekick Reverb 30. It became a problem when I started doing bends on higher (twelfth and above) frets, which came out to be totally dead notes, and it went out of tune multiple times during this short jam session. It was pretty bad. I used it that night with the same problems, and put it in my gig bag for the night. When I got it out again today, the bridge was extremely messed up, to the point of almost total unplayability on the high E and B strings. I'm going to invest in a Mustang bridge and try that out because tis bridge is quite frankly terrible. My suggestion to Fender is to make these types of bridges standard on these, due to the rapid amount of switching over by many players due to the buzz, etc.

I got my Jaguar three days ago. The range of sounds that the Jag offers is just incredible. You really can play anything on it! It is also a very comfortable guitar to play. When I first walked out of the store, the action on the guitar was a little high, the truss rod needed adjusting and there was some buzz coming from the bridge. After my guitar teacher set it up for me, the guitar was completely awesome! The only other problem I've had is with the tremolo system. The tremolo arm isn't threaded, it just pops in. It has a tendency to fall out of the guitar if you don't jam it in well enough. This really isn't a big deal, though. All in all, this is one heck of a guitar for $299! It is just as high quality a guitar as my MIM Standard Stratocaster, which is nearly double the price of the VM Jag. I highly recommend this guitar!

This is an amazing guitar once you put on 11's and a mustang bridge. Will set up fine without them but take days to do. Do yourself a favor and get the 2 mods. you wont be sorry. This is a great guitar.

I got the thing from a scratch and dent part of musicians friend..for around 200 bucks...I still cant find what they called a scratch or a dent on it..
playabillity was less than steller out of the crate.. the bridge srews kept backing out while playing.. (a good set up person could have probably worked out those issues)....so I put a Fender Mustang bridge on it ..27 bucks.. the trem arm would not stay put... so I had a fender Jazzmaster trem assembly laying around.. replaced that...now stays in tune with some good ol surf style divebombes... the pickups were rather thin.. 80 bucks later from ebay...genuine fender 62 AVRI pickups.. along with some vintage style oil filled caps ..aprox 15 bucks. holy tone !!! this thing really came alive... all I would like to do now is add a bone nut to get red of the plactic stock one.. so for about 325 dollars.. I have one killer sounding Modified Squier Vintage Mod guitar ..... sounds better thany my classic player Jag.....Now lets go Surfin.......

My wife bought me this for my 45th birthday last year. I grew up on 1960s Surf Music. Great guitar.....these can be overwhelming if you have never set up a guitar before. Guys complain about the bridge. I have a Tele with a Bigsby with the same bridge. I use clear fingernail polish to keep the screws from moving. It works great. The pickups have a great sound and it's a versitile guitar. Mine is surf green and the finish is very nice. There is one very tiny dent from shipping and it's un noticeable from a foot away. These are not a heavy metal guitar, but for clean or a cranked up amp these have a great alternative fender sound. The price is amazing and with some setup work this guitar is awesome.

I'm a fan of the Fender offset guitars, and I dreamed to have a Jaguar for years.
Before I was owner of a Japan Crafted '62 Vintage reissue Jazzmaster, but it wasn't the beast i want!
I want a Jaguar!
So i search all around the net and finally discovered the Squier Jaguar vintage modified.
I bought one used: a shiny three-tone sunburst.
It is a really great appearance guitar, very look-like - with just few differences from a "real" Fender Jaguar.
Basswood body (mine is five pieces (!) but well paired, and fine wood grain), the vintage bridge is a little lightweight, the trem piece has no trem -stop button and the nut is a greyish plastic piece.
But I was surprised for the level reached by Squier guitars: well refined neck, perfectly filed fretwork, nice lacquer & precise poly body paintwork, perfect warm tone neck paint, and very nice vintage tuners (I like it a lot!).
Pickups are a bargain, gritty and aggressive when needed (with a little lack of low end but with all the character of the originals), but be careful with the feedback, they're really microphonic.
Solution: ... buy a used one for a few bucks and upgrade it! (I found mine really for the half of the price!)
I put on it one adjust o matic (a used as new) bridge and a tremolo piece with trem-stop button (from the original classic player series, they fit perfectly!) and some new pups (The AVRI Fender series are fine: sturdy and wax potted with the plus of the vintage cloth wires), this way you gain in tuning stability, warmer and richer tone, no feedback.
Thanks, and sorry for my rusty English!
The bridge stinks. Figure you're going to spend $100 to change that out. The wood is good if you enjoy the same thing they make model airplanes out of.
The sound is incredible.
You're going to need to put 11s (strings) on this - which means a guitar tech will need to fix the nut, the action, on and on. Consider a Fender Pawn Shop Offset Special or the Squier Vintage Modified Jazzmaster Special to get a maple fretboard.
