2012 was the year of the Jaguar for Fender in bass terms thanks to this slick reworking of the Jag bass design.
By stripping out any unnecessary complications and boiling the Jaguar bass down to its core, Fender hit a home run. Simple, straightforward switching, a solid-as-a-rock bridge and a super cool '70s style neck with bold black inlays, the Modern Player Jaguar is an elegantly designed powerhouse. The P/J pickup configuration gives it a ton of edgy tone, with plenty of bite if you need it. At under £500, you'll struggle to find a better new bass on the market. 45 Stars
