Celebrating Four Decades of Squier Success in 2022!
Squier’s Vintage Edition series celebrates four decades of history with some gorgeous examples of Fender’s classic guitars and basses. From the gold anodized aluminum pickguard to the aged chrome hardware, this 40th Anniversary Jazz Bass is studded with striking style. It also boasts a classic Fender maple neck and fingerboard combo to add to this axe’s utterly timeless look. A pair of Fender-designed alnico single-coils equips this guitar with an authentic Jazz Bass punch, with tight lows, scooped mids, and growling highs. Stunning looks, comfortable playability, and incredible sound: the Vintage Edition series is a gold mine of 40 years of high-quality Squier instruments. These axes are only available until the end of 2022, so don’t miss your chance to own a modern piece of Squier history.
Timeless single-coil bass sound
Although the versatile 40th Anniversary Vintage Edition Jazz Bass sounds great in just about any context, it really shines on musical styles that rely on that classic scooped, growling bass sound. That being said, you can achieve a myriad of tones by blending the volume of both Fender-designed alnico single-coil pickups to taste. Whether you play rock or country, funk or blues, or (naturally) jazz, the 40th Anniversary Vintage Edition Jazz Bass will deliver the tone you need.
Shaped for comfort and performance
One of the things that made the J Bass an instant hit with working bass players was its unique offset-waist body shape. Perfect whether playing standing or seated, the classic Jazz Bass contoured body will make those marathon gigs and sessions much more comfortable. With its slim “C”-profile neck that’s only 1.5 inches wide at the nut, this instrument was originally designed to appeal to jazz bassists. The slender neck not only facilitates the fluid execution of fast, complex bass lines, but it’s also perfect for any musical style — which is why you hear the Jazz Bass in every genre of music.
Join the ranks of Jazz Bass players
Pick up the Squier 40th Anniversary Vintage Edition Jazz Bass and you’ve got affordable entrée into the company of some of the greatest bass players of all time. World-renowned bassists such as Jaco Pastorius, Geddy Lee, Marcus Miller, Larry Graham, John Paul Jones, and Victor Bailey all chose the J Bass as their go-to axe. Take the advice of bassists: if you want the iconic round and punchy, growling J Bass sound along with effortless playability — and an amazing value, to boot — you’re on the right page.
