Review : Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass 70'S by Fender

I have played many electric bass guitar and found a lot of basses in my time with 20 years experience .

The Squier Vintage Modified Jazz bass 70'S is definitely and good one of my top favorites bass.
This one has a very clean and brigth sound that is both looks and sounds great.

I plugged this into a 300 watt Mark Bass rig and was floored by how good this bass sounds.
Crystal highs and booming lows. There was no loss of the bass or distortion when I cranked it up.
It was easy to change tones by adjusting the volume controls and rolling off the tone a bit.

It also sounds amazing for jazz and rock! It's got a very deep sound.

If you are like Jazz bass style ,I think this bass is fantastic and worth the money .

Price : $274.99

"Nice style Vintage Bass and Nice for the Price!"

Regarding hardware It's hardware and pickups are very good quality, and the 3-piece body is seamless.

Product Features

Soft Maple body with gloss polyurethane finish
Maple neck with 9.5 in radius maple fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets and black block inlays
2 Duncan Designed(TM) JB101 Single-Coil Jazz Bass® Pickups with AlNiCo 5 Magnets
Standard 4 Saddle Bridge
Master tone with 2 volume controls

OK from above detail,The new neck is horribly bowed and has terrible buzzing above the 12th fret,
so I have to raise the action unnecessarily high. Adjusting the truss rod is a scary ordeal.
I'm afraid to adjust it too tight - the neck feels so flimsy and The neck is more comfortable than anything I have ever played.

Finally,Do yourself a favor and check this bass out. Even though it's a Squier Jazz Bass, it has become your number one bass and would be devastated if something happened to it.

Fender Jazz Bass 3 Tone Sunburst Rosewood Fretboard

Welcome back to Bass Central website,Today I would like to show you about the high quality Jazz Bass by Fender.

Fender® scored a giant bass hit in 1960 by introducing its deluxe four-string instrument - the Jazz Bass® guitar. With its sleek offset body; thin, fast neck and rich, growling tone, it was a raring, roaring racecar of a bass that quickly established itself as a must-have instrument. The new American Standard Jazz Bass is an even finer instrument; a modern interpretation of a classic built for modern players. Features include a high-mass vintage bridge, thinner finish undercoat that lets the body breathe and improves resonance, improved Fender tuners that are 30 percent lighter while keeping the classic look, richer and deeper neck tint for a more elegant appearance, great-looking gloss rosewood fingerboard, satin neck back for smooth playability and Fender-exclusive SKB® molded case.

Product Features

  • American Standard Jazz Bass® neck and bridge pickups offer a great range of classic and contemporary Jazz Bass® tones.
  • A thinner finish undercoat and a new HMV (high-mass) bridge help make this an exceptionally lively and resonant instrument.
  • Posiflex(TM) graphite neck support rods make this an exceptionally stable instrument worthy of world tours.
  • Fender®-exclusive SKB® molded case, cable, strap, and polishing cloth included.

Creation your song with Victor Wooten's Slap technique.

"Open Hammer On Pop" or OHP ,next i will be say "OHP".
This is like vitor woonten's plucking technique but i would like to apply for us as some one can not using plucking with his thumb.
A concept of slapping an open string with thumb, Hammering a note with left hand and then pop string.
a note with your index finger. "Open Hammer Pluck" (OHP) is just a name and like all names they can be changed.

Tab Symbo
T = Thumb or Slap
P = Pop using the index finger
HO , H = Hammer-on

1.Basic Pattern

victor wooten's slap technic tab for OHP

Throughout all of the different ways that we will explore this technique over the next few lessons,
it is good if we can keep the concept the same.
"Simple". This will allow us to keep our "thinking" simple as the technique gets more complex.
To get us started, here is my song of the basic OHP using to combine moving chord progressive in Em .
My song and sound that you hear guideline to create your song with OHP technique.
I using lick in Em scale as thus tab below.

victor wooten's slap technic tab for OHP

It consist of three notes or three "attacks" (since some of the notes can be played as muted notes).
Start with this and get comfortable with it.
it at different speeds and with different levels of dynamics but make sure that each note stays clean and distinct.
Make sure that you can hear each individual attack. That will allow us to move it around much easier later.

All Tab below are show notes of my song in progressive chords "Em,D7,C7,B7" etc.

T = Thumb or Slap
P = Pop using the index finger
