Squier Jaguar Guitars & Bass

Squier Jaguar faithfully captures the raw, edgy style of the timeless Fender Jaguar in an affordable package – this is ideal for first-time players or as a backup for experienced players.

Despite being originally popular among the surf genre around its first introduction – the Jaguar has actually become a much-loved guitar amongst the grunge community. Don’t be deceived though, the Squier Jaguar is ideal for a multitude of sounds and genres, whether you’re seeking something clean and bright or fuzzy and noisy. These guitars were favoured on the grunge scene in the nineties due to their affordable nature and slick design features.



Yes, the Squier Jaguar is a great option for beginners. Ideally suited for first-time players, or even as a trusty backup for an original, the Squier Jaguar invokes old-school style combined with the effortless playability of a modern guitar. A no-brainer for beginners who want classic style in a seriously cool looking instrument. As ever with the Squier range, you’re getting all of the rich history and expertise of a Fender guitar at a great price.


As the Squier Jaguar has been completely designed with immense attention to detail – it carries that legendary and unmistakable Jaguar tone. It is after all the tone that really sets the Jaguar apart from other models. You can also expect some seriously high-quality electronics.


Squier’s famous Classic Vibe series has quickly become a go-to favourite for new guitarists looking for a high-quality guitar. The concept of the series was to provide a range of budget-friendly guitars boasting classic designs at amazing prices. The range has been completely revamped in 2019 – which means you’ll get the freshest finishes, pickup configurations and instrument types. Ultimately – they’re great value for money.


Luckily both the Jaguar and the Jazzmaster are available as budget-friendly Squier options. If you’re unsure of which one to choose then that’s completely fine, it’s really down to personal preference. That’s why we’d suggest heading to your nearest PMT store to try out a few different models. There are a lot of similarities between both of these guitars – especially the striking an iconic and sleek offset design.
