Squier Contemporary Jazz Bass in Ocean Blue Metallic

The Jazz bass is among some of the most recognisable instruments of all time. Originally intended, as the name suggests, for the upmarket jazz crowd, it surpassed all expectations, becoming a go-to bass guitar for everyone from Jaco Pastorius to RHCP's Flea. For the 2018 Contemporary Series, Squier have injected the classic Jazz bass design with modern playability and a revitalised sound!

New Squier Contemporary Basses - All About The Bass

Body & Neck

In a departure from the norm, Squier have opted for a Poplar body. A common alternative to Fender's most commonly used tonewood, Alder, it offers a similarly mid-rich tone with a little extra brightness. This means your basslines will be pronounced and resonant, perfect for cutting through complex mixes.

For the neck, they've chosen the familiar satin Maple C-shape configuration, offering a snappy response and comfortable playability. Top if off with an Indian Laurel fretboard, and you've got a resonant combination that'll deliver a tone with heaps of depth and definition.

Last but by no means least, aesthetics; stunning gloss polyurethane finishes will remain bright and striking for years to come. And they're not just used for the body either - Squier have gone for the ol' matching headstock trick. You'' be turning heads in no time!

Hardware & Electronics

Chrome hardware is used throughout; combined with the standard open-gear tuners, 3-ply parchment pickguard and 4-saddle bridge, your left with more than a handful of retro undertones, respectful of the Jazz bass' rich heritage.

For pickups, Squier have provided two ceramic single-coils. Ceramic pickups are known for the supreme clarity and relatively high output, ensuring a punchy, modern response suited to anything you throw at it.
