Dedicated to giving you the sound from the decade of funk and early punk, the Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass '77 electric bass guitar in black comes loaded with soulful features that will inspire, and make performing an even more enjoyable experience.
The Jazz Bass '77 has been shaped to the effortlessly stylish Jazz Bass body profile, with offset waist that was originally designed to accommodate the seated playing position of players at the time. Crafted from agathis, the body delivers a delightful output, which is filled with warmth that is infused with articulation. Playing host to a black and white pickguard, the body has been finished in a cool and stylish black.
Fitted to the body is a one-piece, 'C'-shaped maple neck, offering a firm playing support that yields well to fast playing styles - just what you'd expect from a model that was utilised during the birth of punk. Married to the neck is a responsive maple fingerboard, protected along the edges with a white binding. The 20 medium-jumbo frets are adorned with stunning pearloid-block position inlays. The matching headstock contains 4 chrome standard open-gear tuners, which work tirelessly to uphold tuning integrity.
In order to provide the quintessential '77 tones, Fender-designed single-coil Jazz Bass pickups have been fitted in the middle and bridge positions. Control is simple thanks to the individual volume pots for each pickup, and a master tone control. However, don't be fooled by the simplicity of the setup, as the range of tones that can be plucked from this pair of pickups is vast, accommodating a wide range of musical styles.
The Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass is designed to bring the vintage sound of the late '70s to a host of new players, excelling in delivering exquisite tones, sophisticated looks, and supreme playability that is ideal for bassists of all levels and musical styles.
