Squier Bronco Electric Bass, Maple Fingerboard

A short-scale bass with a Mustang-style body, the Bronco is no one-trick pony: an agathis body and maple neck give its Special Design single-coil rich tone.
If you're a younger player, a beginner, or are just looking for a bass with a shorter reach, then check out the Squier Bronco electric bass. A shorter scale length of only 30" boasts 19 medium jumbo frets on a maple neck, and a Special Design single-coil pickup in the middle position projects a warm tone full of depth and clarity. A sharp-looking agathis body provides a well-balanced resonance as well as a comfortable fit against your front, and chrome finish hardware along with a 3-ply white pickguard all add a classy visual finesse.

Agathis Bronco Body

Your Squier Bronco electric bass boasts a cool-looking agathis body in a curvy and comfy Fender Mustang-style Bronco shape. As a tonewood, agathis will place an emphasis on your lows and mids, pushing a warm resonance full of body in a manner that's less intense than mahogany. A healthy heaping of low end oomph is a solid characteristic for a bass guitar, especially if you want to bring a little more growl to the stage.

Shorter-Scaled Maple Neck

Starting out with a shorter scale length has many advantages. It can be a plus if you're a smaller-sized musician and are looking for something a little more comfortable. Shorter-scaled necks will have closer frets and looser strings -- two characteristics that can be helpful for a burgeoning bass player. Maple yields a slight push on those higher frequencies for a pleasantly vibrant resonance.

Crystal Clear Special Design Single-Coil Pickup

Housed in the read more middle position is this axe's Special Design Single-Coil pickup. You'll hear a clear capture of your Bronco's resonating agathis body as your fingers play. Dial in the decibels with your volume control to hear this baby purr, and utilize your tone control to roll in those highs or to darken your output for whatever the occasion demands.

I am a guitarist and I needed a base to record with. This little bass is packed with big sound, and once I set it up it plays like a dream.
