The Squier Classic Vibe Jaguar Electric Bass is the perfect model for bassists who're looking for a stylish and sophisticated tonal palette to play with. The timeless design has been equipped with modern appointments to make this Jag better than ever before. The Jaguar has been the model of choice for some of the finest musicians in history including: Kurt Cobain, John Frusciante, Johnny Marr, and Kevin Shields - so you can rest assured that you will be following in the footsteps of some truly awesome Squier Classic Vibes.
The Jaguar body shape remains unchanged, with a cool offset waist design that makes the body very comfortable to hold. Whether you're playing in a seated position, or stood up, the Jag is perfectly balanced. The smoothly contoured shape allows the body to rest snugly as you play, offering the most comfortable and controlled feel one could hope for. The tonewood used in the body is Nato, which is exquisitely balanced with regard to tonality.
Fitted to the body is a responsive maple neck, shaped to the smooth "C" shape profile, which is perfect for executing your playing technique deftly. Married to the neck is a sumptuous Indian Laurel fingerboard, which is shaped to a 9.5-inch radius to accommodate fast-playing styles. The smooth Tinted Gloss Urethane neck finish gives it a resistance-free playing feel, allowing you to glide along with ease. The headstock is home to Vintage Style tuning machines that work tirelessly to maintain tuning integrity throughout each and every performance.
Master of Tone
The Jaguar has been fitted with a pair of Squier Designed Alnico Single-Coil pickups for plenty of growl. The combination offered affords you an incredibly versatile tonal palette to paint with. Control comes in the form of a single master and a single tone tone control. Shaping your tone couldn't be easier and navigating through the expansive tonal universe at your fingertips couldn't be more enjoyable.
Fitted to the body is a 4-saddle standard vintage-style bridge with single-groove saddles, which works meticulously to uphold string intonation thanks to the seamless connection between the strings and body. Thanks to the resilient layer of protective gloss Polyurethane, the sophisticated finish will remain in pristine condition for as long as is possible.
If you're looking for a superior electric bass that is perfect for studio recording and is rugged enough to cope with life on the road, then the Squier Classic Vibe Jaguar Electric Bass is perfect. Combining an unfussy setup with sublime tonality, at a price that everyone can take advantage of, is something that Squier is known for, but even this time they've outdone themselves.
