The Squier Classic Vibe 70s Jazz Bass V is a model that combines vintage aesthetic with modern appointments to give you traditional tone and modern reliability. Although considered a budget/beginner range don't let that fool you into thinking that these guitars aren't serious machines. Squier guitars work just as well for touring musicians as they do for the newbie and the Classic Vibe 70s Jazz Bass V is no exception.
Classic Looks, Modern Spec
The body is constructed using Soft Maple that really allows the vibrations to resonate through the body for a fundamentally rich tone with bright characteristics. Soft Maple is a balanced and full-bodied tonewood lending itself well to a variety of styles with a well pronounced mid and high range, the lows still shine through with clarity and bite.
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 Maple fretboard with aplomb. An easy-playing, 9.5-inch radius ensures you'll find big stretches and fast playing come with ease and the 20-fret fingerboard bearing block position inlays complements the finish in style, whilst providing a useful navigational tool to ensure you never lose your way.
Powerful Electronics, Reliable Hardware
That soulful, classic sound of the much-loved 70s J Bass emanates from a pair of Fender-designed Alnico Single-Coil pickups controlled from the independent volume controls for each pickup and the master tone control. With the Squier Classic Vibe 70s Jazz Bass V, you can truly shape the tone to your liking, one of the key strengths of the original Jazz Bass. The 4-saddle Vintage-Style bridge 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 70s Jazz Bass V 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, you'll wonder how you ever got by without one of these beauties in your hands.
