The Jazz Bass has been a staple electric instrument since the 1960s when it was initially released. As the tone became iconic through the first decade of the its creation, players began looking for different tonal shaping options and modifications to fit the evolving music scene.
Changes like a maple fingerboard and moving the bridge pickup further back towards the bridge enabled the player to achieve brighter tones that would become an extremely sought after sound. The Squier Classic Vibe 70s Jazz Bass has the tone and feel of that legendary 70s model at an affordable price that will satisfy any type of player!
The classic body shape makes for ultimate comfort so you can play as long as you like sitting or standing. The neck was made with a Vintage "C" profile that is big enough to get the most tone and sustain out of every note without obstructing your playing! The maple fingerboard has a 9.5" Radius that's loaded with 20 Narrow Tall Frets. For Pickups Squier loaded in 2 Fender
Squier Basses have long been considered nothing more than an entry level instrument and for decades, that's all that they were. Nowadays, thanks to CNC Machines, better trained employees, and simple finishing techniques, we are seeing the level of quality raising across the globe. Squiers are made in China and Indonesia these days are they shockingly fine players. While it is true, the metals on these instruments aren't as nice as the American Made counterparts. For beginners, this is not much of an issue. And for more experienced players, these guitars are a perfect way to incorporate an inexpensive version when you need something for maybe just a couple songs. Also the best choice for modification due to the wealth of after market parts available these days. Stop by the shop today and compare practically the entire Fender Guitar Line!
