Description

A daring reimagination of a rumbling classic, the Squier Contemporary Active Jazz Bass introduces enticing, cutting-edge features to a tried-and-true platform. With a matching headstock for a streamlined appearance and the stealthy vibe of black chrome hardware, this head-turning J Bass® is the embodiment of “bold.”

The Contemporary Active Jazz Bass caters to modern players with a 12”-radius roasted maple fingerboard on a slim, modern “C”-shaped neck profile, providing fast and comfortable playability. At the heart of this monster is a pair of Squier SQR™ ceramic humbucking pickups that produce high fidelity tone great for any style. Further enhancing tone versatility is an active 9-volt preamp, offering intuitive controls for volume, pickup blend, traditional tone and stacked boost controls for bass and treble.

Ash Body

For the Active Jazz Bass, Squier have opted for an Ash body. Originally used by Fender for their earliest solid-body offerings in the '50s, it provides a scooped mid-range with accentuated lows and highs. This allows you to sit comfortably in a mix without interfering with other frequencies - plus it's brilliant for the more adventurous player who favours drop-tunings or a bit of slap now and then.

Roasted Maple Neck

The Squier Contemporary Jazz Bass' Roasted Maple neck doesn't only look great - it feels amazing to play too, especially with the comfortable "C"-shaped profile. Roasted Maple is formed by removing moisture from the material. This in turn causes the resins in the wood to harden, which not only creates a gorgeous dark colouration, but also provides increased stability and improved resistance to temperature and humidity changes.

High-Quality Hardware

Black chrome hardware is used throughout; combined with the standard open-gear tuners and HiMass 4-saddle bridge, your left with more than a handful of retro undertones - respectful of the Jazz Bass' rich heritage. Metal dome knobs add a little touch of high-end class to finish it off.

SQR Ceramic Humbuckers

Finally, as the name suggests, Squier have loaded this model with two high-output humbuckers - the SQR Active Ceramics. This final element tips the Contemporary Active Jazz Bass into modern tonal territory, offering extreme clarity and sustain. Perfectly suited to anything from crushing metal riffage to spanky funk basslines!
