    I dunno...... Those pickups look like they belong in a pointy guitar.

    I'm kind of a purist when it comes to most Fender/Squier guitars: Single coil. Sure the Tele Deluxe sports WRHBs and some of the '80s designs had HBs, but that was not Leo's primary idea of a guitar...... ;):cool::rolleyes:

    Did you order it online or find it in a store?

    How's the quality compared to the VM JM? I want one of the affinitys to paint lpb with a matching head stock.

    Quality is quite on par. Neck is satin and not gloss so that's a plus to me. Fret ends may be a bit sharp(er) but not gonna cut you. They're really very different guitars apart from the shape and scale length. But for $200 usd (ordered straight from Fender) I don't think anyone will be disappointed. Affinities (and all of Squier) are pretty amazing these days.

    My heavily modified Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass...
    List of mods:
    1) Electronics Plates: Swapped out the 4 hole control plate for a three hole. Controls are now: Master Tone, Master Volume.
    2) Pickups: 1970's Rounded Jazz Bass type Japanese Pickups. These are great sounding... very high output. HOT. I placed them towards the neck as I never really liked the sound of the rear jazz pickup. This way, they also resemble the Jag guitar much more as well.
    3) Custom Mint/Black/Mint Pickguard. This was a ***** to cut, but it turned out pretty good.
    4) Customized lower pickup selector. Now a 3-way blade selector... way more functional but retains the look. Kinda like the Johnny Marr Jag, but home-made!
    5) Upper Horn Control: The On/Off is now a passive on-board FUZZ! I created this using two resistors... If you look up Tone Fiend Black Ice, you can find out how this is done. It sounds super cool. The rollers are not hooked up but look cool.
    6) Fender waterslide decal on headstock.... I love my Squier... don't get me wrong.... but I guess this just classes it up for me a bit .
    7) Cover Plate over the strings: This hides the Jazz hole! I thought about putting the "F" Jazz Bass bridge cover over this but thought it made too much into a Jazz Bass...

    Overall.... I love this thing. Great neck and the pickups really kick it up a notch. I have always thought that Fender's (and Squier's for that matter) Jaguar Bass designs were too close to the design of the Jazz Bass. I'm not taking anything away from those that love their Jag Basses as they are... this is just my opinion. They use the same J Bass or P/J combo and/or Placement that we see on pre-existing models, they just add a bigger pickguard.
    I always thought they should create something similar to the Jag Guitar, which is what I tried to do here. I'd really like to have the nice switches like the new American Fender Jaguars have but these work well and the whole project/making part was fun.

    My apologies for the fingerprints in the pics!!! yuk. Gotta fix that.
