Authentic Jazz Bass Style
The Ash body of the Squier Contemporary Jazz Bass has real, authentic Fender Jazz bass style with its elegant waist design and double cutaway.
Ash is a popular wood for electric instrument bodies due to its strong and dense makeup. It is nicely resonant and produces well-defined midrange and strong low end.
Not only does its distinctive double cutaway look great, but it provides easy access to the higher frets – essential for more adventurous bass playing.
Attached to the body by way of a sturdy 4-bolt neck plate is a slim and fast Maple neck that has a comfortable “C” shaped profile and smooth satin finish.
Atop the neck is a smooth Maple fretboard with a 12” radius – ideal for lightning fast bass runs.
Dual Active Humbuckers
The true driving force behind this Jazz Bass’s incredible tone has to be the pair of Squier SQR ceramic active humbucking pickups.
Producing awesome sound, these pickups are highly versatile and work well in any style of music.
To further tailor your tone, the controls on this excellent 5-string bass include volume, pickup blend, tone and stacked boost controls to adjust bass and treble.
Got It Where It Counts
When you first see this bass, you’ll notice how great it looks. With its matt finish, Black colour scheme and black chrome hardware – this jazz bass is stealthy and understated but dripping with “cool”.
More importantly though, with its active SQR ceramic humbuckers and excellent build, the beauty isn’t just skin deep and the Squier Active Jazz Bass V HH delivers incredible tone and awesome playability.
