    I just picked up the new bass to my arsenal, and it's a Squier VM Jazz. Right out of the box the set up was better than the MIM Fender Jazzes at the store, and rivaled the MIA Jazz. I'm not saying it's better, just that it rivals it. I just got in yesterday some new cabs, and with the money I saved from my budget, I was able to order in this sexy beast. Love it!

    Nice! I hated my vm.
  3. Nice, if the 5 string version came in sunburst or any other colour than natural it´d be on my list.

    Congrats. I've played them in Music Stores and they are nice basses. If they really want to sell these all they have to do is add one in red.
  5. Looks great! The VM is a great bass, and I too find that it runs with the "big boys", so to speak. My "savings" have helped pay for cabs, amps, effects...and much more. I'm not the only one who likes it either - many others have commented on how good it looks/sounds/feels. It is a touch on the bright side for my liking, but thats a preference thing rather than a flaw.

    I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Have fun!

    I think I'm in love! I already have a tort pick guard ordered, it should be a direct replacement. I called up Fender and asked for the part number for the tort pick guard and they gave it to me. That should be here by the end of the week, or the beginning of next week.

    I picked up the tort pickgaurd and threw it on there. Here it is now in-front of the bass amp. :D

  8. That looks great! Did you get the guard straight from Fender? If you don't mind, could you post (or PM me with) the part number, where you got it from, and the price? That is EXACTLY what I want for my VM Jazz!

    Many thanks, and enjoy that great looking bass!

    i just picked up a CV jazz, and i agree that it runs with the big boys very easily.

    Sunburst and black blocks - was that a special order item? it's not on the Fender/Squier website. Enquiring minds want to know! Muchos gracias
