Squier Chris Aiken Precision Bass

Strung Out bassist Chris Aiken has joined forces with Squier to bring you the Squier Chris Aiken Precision electric bass guitar. If you're a bass player itching for a new axe, but you're rocking on a budget, then this Squier is calling your name. Its maple neck stretches 20 frets in length, and attractive white binding lets your hand tread in style. Basswood keeps your resonance nice and balanced, and a Duncan Designed Split Single-Coil Precision Bass pickup forges a punchy tone with a nice helping of body. And that mirrored finish makes this bass a treat for the eyes as well as the ears.

Basswood Precision Bass Body

Precision basses are popular among musicians for many reasons: They boast a comfortable feel, they are easy on the eyes, and they yield a warm sound that works in many different styles of music. Basswood places an even emphasis on your low, middle, and high frequencies, so you don't have to obsess over EQ while crafting your output on your amplifier. Chris Aiken's specs include a mirrored acrylic pickguard along with Strung Out's hallmark "Astrolux" logo donned on the headstock's front. Aiken's signature is featured on the back.

Simple Electronics: One Duncan Designed Split-Coil P Bass Pickup

Your Chris Aiken Precision electric bass features straightforward, no-nonsense circuitry. A single Duncan Designed Split Single-Coil Precision Bass pickup does all of the legwork of capturing your performance and crafting it into a clear, articulate signal to hit your amplifier. Since this bass yields an evenly balanced resonance, you won't have to stress over playing around with a tone control, but if you need a little extra low-end oomph, midrange punch, or high-end zing, simply adjust your amplifier's EQ.

Comfortable C-Shaped Maple Neck

This bass's maple fingerboard and maple neck span 20 medium-jumbo frets. As a neck tonewood, maple will push the higher frequencies of your strings slightly, yielding a pleasantly rounded brightness with just the right amount of snap. Pearloid block fingerboard inlays indicate your fret positions, and a cozy C-shaped neck profile ensures smooth and comfortable playability for your hand to enjoy.

Squier Chris Aiken Precision Bass

Squier's Chris Aiken Precision Bass packs the Strung Out bassist and songwriter's hard-hitting look, sound and style into a formidable take on the venerable Fender classic unmistakably adorned with the band's hallmark "Astrolux" logo on the front of the headstock and Aiken's signature on the back.

Aiken joined the Simi Valley, California, punk outfit in time to make an indelible mark on 2000 EP The Element of Sonic Defiance, immediately staking a distinctive claim in Strung Out with his powerful bass work.

Other distinctive features include a gleaming mirrored acrylic pickguard on a pure white body, 20-fret maple neck and fingerboard with stylish white binding and white pearloid block inlays, powerful Duncan Designed PB-105 pickup, single knurled chrome control knob (volume) and "HiMass" bridge with brass saddles for rock-solid intonation and sustain.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Extremely long winded and unbias review . . ."
Sound: I am a huge fan of the Duncan Designed Pickup line and have them installed in several of my guitars and basses. This particular pickup sounds fantastic and I would never change it unless it malfunctioned.Very clear, punchy and articulate. The Maple neck, brass saddles and basswood body make for an incredibly resonant bass! I was a little worried about the lack of a tone knob but that changed as soon as I plugged it in. As far as the sound is concerned, this axe is A+ Feature: This may sound a little counter intuitive, but the best feature, is a lack of features. I spend far too much time noodling around with dialing in the "perfect" tone. So, it's refreshing to have such a simple, no frills, rock bass! Ease of Use: Unfortunately, I had minor problems in the playability department. My bass required a full setup. Which I would have performed regardless because I enjoy it and like to adjust things to preference. Too much neck relief. Nut slots too shallow. Pickup heights were off. Intonation off. The usual. All easily rectified in less than an hour if you know what you're doing. I like my action fairly low at 1.5mm and I couldn't find a buzzing/high fret anywhere. . . hallelujah! Quality: A+ Fender/Squier instruments generally last forever. All high quality components on this one. High Mass bridge, with brass saddles. The tuners feel excellent and stable. Fit was great- neck and body were perfectly paired. Finish- B+ due to the fact that there is several spots that weren't fully buffed out after paint. I will give them the benefit of the doubt though, because the color white is a cruel mistress when it comes to buffing because it's incredibly difficult to see the spots you have already buffed. The block inlays were done flawlessly and I could not find the tell tale signs of any filler to cover up imperfections around the edges at all!!!! Awesome! Value: Value is incredible!! The new Squier's are without a doubt the best bang for your buck available. I am a Fender snob and immediately ended up preferring this Squier over them. That says a lot! Manufacturer Support: I have not dealt with Fender/Squier customer service. The Wow Factor: Maple Neck w/ Pearl Block Inlays is very unique. A nice throwback to the seventies Jazz models. After a full setup, you will be shocked at how amazing this precision plays! Overall: Excellent Quality Precision Bass for half as much as it's Mexican brother . . .
Style of Music: Blues, Jazz , Rock, Fusion

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Very surprising quality signature bass !"
Overall: I have been playing and collecting basses over 30 years ,but at the moment, I just have 2. My main bass is the Geddy Lee Sign. Jazz bass. Owned a Japanese made one in 2002, now they are made in Mexico, for those who didn't know. Still a killer Bass. I got that from zZounds about 3 months ago, but this review is about my latest bass, The Chris Aiken Sign. p- bass by Squire. I am not a P-bass Type , but this one was so attractive I had to have it !! It has the 1 5/8" at the nut neck, so not too wide for most Jazz bass lovers like myself. This bass has a very quality Maple all gloss neck ( OLD SCHOOL ) w/ the white binding and pearloid blocks. 70s Screaming !!! With the olympic white body and the Steve Harris like mirrored pick guard , this bass has Class !!!! Indonesian made , not Chinese and very good quality, surprising quality for the price ! How does the Duncan Designed PU sound ? Killer !! Very good growling P-Bass sound. Fender Tone all day ! If you get one as good as I did , you can't go wrong with this one !
Style of Music: Heavy Metal 80s, Classic Rock, Blues
