The Squier Classic Vibe 60s Fretless Jazz Bass in 3 Color Sunburst is a model that combines vintage aesthetic with modern appointments to give you traditional tone and modern reliability. This fretless model is a powerful tool for expression, having a sound that is more in line with a traditional double bass than your typical bass guitar, but still great for a variety of styles.
Classic Looks, Modern Spec
The body is constructed using Poplar that delivers solid feel with a fundamentally rich tone, whilst never feeling cumbersome. Poplar is a balanced and full-bodied tonewood lending itself well to a variety of styles. The low end is generous, with a deft midrange smack, and the highs shine through beautifully.
Fitted to the body is a one-piece Maple neck, giving this bass a soulful yet snappy tonality. With a slender 'C' profile you'll find your fingers glide over the Indian Laurel fretboard with aplomb whilst the 9.5-inch radius ensures big stretches and fast scale runs come with ease. The 20 fret lines guide your way and unlike a regular bass you play on the fret rather than behind it, opening up a whole new world of microtones in between your typical Western scale notes found on a typical modern bass guitar.
Powerful Electronics, Reliable Hardware
That soulful, classic sound of the much-loved original 60s Fretless Jazz Bass emanates from a pair of Fender-designed Alnico Single-Coil pickups controlled with the independent volume controls for each pickup and the master tone control. With the Squier Classic Vibe 60s Fretless Jazz Bass Guitar, you can truly shape the tone to your liking, one of the key strengths of the original Fretless Jazz Bass. The 4-saddle Vintage-Style bridge with threaded steel saddles meticulously anchors strings to uphold intonation, whilst the Vintage-Style tuning machines firmly hold strings in tune throughout each and every performance.
The Squier Classic Vibe 60s Fretless Jazz Bass represents staggeringly good value for money. From the deft curves and perfectly executed Jazz Bass design to the crisp timbre of the tonewoods, from the tonal dexterity of the pickups to the exquisite playing feel of the fretless fingerboard, this guitar will open up a whole new world of creative possibilities.
