I was reading the "Why does everyone hate Squiers" thread and it seems that most players are consistent with the idea that the average Squier can be owner modified into a better instrument. I own a Squier Standard Jazz (made in Indonesia) bass that I really like. I used it as a back up bass, although for the past few months I have just been bringing it to rehearsal. I have a nice Ken Rose 5 String, but the music I have been playing in the band doesn't really call for it. As far as the Squier J, I am going to upgrade it, but not in the immediate future. I am curious to see what the TB community has done to their basses. New bridges? Pups? What kind? Paint job? I have considered sanding the neck to make it "faster". I have considered putting a new bridge on it, if I find a good one cheap on ebay. I will put new pups on it... passive. But not sure what kind. I want to improve the sound, but not move away from the old school jazz sound. So, I know you guys and girls are out there... lets see and hear about what you have done to your Squier. BTW: I am not a brand name focused guy. I don't care who's name is on the headstock- if it sounds good, run with it.
