Squier Classic Vibe Jazz V
This Squier Classic Vibe 70s Jazz Bass 5-String harks back to the phenomenal success and subsequent evolution of the 1970's Fender 4 string Jazz bass. Renowned for its ultra comfortable playability and smooth, warm tones, the Jazz bass has been a genre defining staple as well as an industry standard bass guitar for many years, so Squier pays homage here by maintaining the incredible feel of this classic instrument, enhanced with a couple of modern marvels such as a fifth string for additional low notes, alnico single coil pickups designed in house at Fender, and a comfortable 'C' shape neck profile.
The Squier Classic Vibe 70s Jazz Bass 5-String features a resonant Poplar body and a Maple neck with a super playable 9.5 radius maple fretboard to provide both comfort to the player, as well as a carefully balanced tonal response for low end oomph and articulate treble when playing in the higher registers. Lower than standard pitch registers are open to you as well, with the additional 5th string offering up a low B note for crushing, deep riffs and embellishments. The vintage vibe comes by means of a 70's inspired headstock design, 20 narrow-tall frets, a vintage style bridge with slotted barrel saddles, nickel plated hardware and a sleek vintage tinted gloss neck finish.
For powerful yet versatile bass tonality, extremely comfortable playability and a touch of the classic Fender aesthetic, the Squier Classic Vibe 70s Jazz Bass 5-String has it all for beginners and professionals alike.
