Squier Jaguar Special Short Scale Bass
The Squier Jaguar Special Short Scale bass guitar is a classic model, with a unique body profile. The offset waist design was originally constructed to make this model easier for performers to play with in a seated position, as was the custom of Jazz and Blues players. This gives the guitar a very comfortable playing feel. The Jaguar Special produces an impressive sustain, with a balanced response across lows, mids, and highs. The body is finished in a cool brown sunburst, which is protected by a layer of polyurethane to protect the paintwork. A black pickguard protects the top around the strings from unwanted nicks and scrapes that can occur whilst playing.
Paired with the body is a responsive maple neck, shaped to the "C" profile. Married to the neck is a rosewood fingerboard, home to 20 medium-jumbo frets. The 9.5" fingerboard radius means that executing smooth string bends can be done with ease, whilst remaining compact enough for new players to build up their technique with confidence. The neck has also been treated to a polyurethane coating, allowing it to retain its pristine feel for as long as possible.
The Squier Jaguar Special is equipped with a PJ pickup arrangement that consists of a split single-coil Precision Bass pickup in the middle position, and a single-coil Jazz Bass pickup in the bridge. This exquisite combination opens up a whole world of tonal delights to explore, with a simple control arrangement that consists of individual volume controls for each pickup, as well as a master tone control for both.
Fender Rumble 15 Bass Guitar Combo Amplifier
The Fender Rumble 15 bass guitar combo amplifier is the perfect practise partner for the Jaguar Special Bass. It may be compact, but that doesn't stop it from producing an immense output, thanks to the sealed cabinet design, which keeps the low-end in check, and in turn giving the signal legs to move freely. Fender's Delta Comp compression circuitry provides a steady signal output, which tightens up your tone without diminishing signal quality - an important feature for both pickers and fingerstyle players alike. The 3-band EQ allows you to get creative with the signal output, particularly useful for trying out different playing styles and musical genres.
The 15-watt output is easily loud enough for bedroom practise, and ample for practising with others. The headphone output allows you to practise silently during those late night sessions when you don't want to annoy your neighbours. The aux input allows you to connect an external sound source, e.g. MP3 player, so that you can jam along to your favourite songs. The rugged black vinyl covering protects the enclosure, with nickel corners to safeguard vulnerable edges. The black metal grille protects the speaker from unwanted damage when you're transporting the amp.
The "Stop Dreaming, Start Playing!" Set is absolutely fantastic if you're looking for a complete starter package for the electric bass guitar. Pairing the incredibly comfortable to play Squier Jaguar Special Short Scale, with the powerful and versatile Rumble 15 combo bass amp makes for a fantastic combination.
