Squier's Take on the '70s Fender Jazz Bass!
If you're shopping around for your first electric bass, then check out the Squier Vintage Modified '70s Jazz electric bass. This affordable beauty sports an attractive 3-ply black pickguard, a comfy soft maple body, a maple neck with 20 medium jumbo frets, a smooth and inviting black-bound maple fingerboard, a pair of Fender-designed Jazz Bass single-coil pickups, and tasteful chrome hardware. When it comes to guitars and basses, Squier is a great place to begin the journey of finding your perfect instrument to complement your style.
The Warm Sound of Soft Maple
As its name suggests, soft maple is softer than hard maple. It yields a slight push in the upper mid frequencies, which gives off a pleasant yet subtle brightness to your notes. Soft maple also tends to soften the low end a bit, so your tone won't get too fat unless you take advantage of your tone control on your amplifier EQ settings. This body's push on the upper mids makes it a great choice for playing licks and fills, if your fingers are itching for some melodic action.
Fender-designed Jazz Bass Single-Coil Pickups
Your ears and amplifier will love this bass's pair of Fender-designed Jazz Bass single-coil pickups. These two pickups take in and project a warm and welcoming tone perfect for jazz, but they also work well for rock and pop settings. You can use your independent volume controls to blend the desired mixture of each pickup to forge your output.
Addicting Maple Neck
This attractive bass features a maple neck and maple fingerboard to invite your fingers to travel. Maple necks yield a rounded brightness that adds a little bite to your sound. All 20 medium jumbo frets get nice and close to each string for you to warm your fingers up on. The C shape profile makes for a comfortable feel as your hand changes positions up and down the fingerboard. Classy black block fingerboard inlays mark your fret positions.
