The Squier Contemporary Active Jazzmaster HH ST Guitar in Graphite Metallic combines classic style with modern appointments to give this an aggressive edge for rockers and metallers alike. Equipped with active electronics and a pair of beefy ceramic humbuckers, this Jazzmaster can snarl and wail with the best of them.
Classic offset design
The Squier Contemporary Active Jazzmaster is shaped to the classic offset waist design we've all come to know and love, which establishes a comfortable playing position whether seated or standing. The slender body depth and elegant curves create a figure-hugging feel, whilst the use of lightweight poplar makes it a joy to perform with for long periods. Poplar has the added advantage of being tonally balanced with a defined midrange character with subtle lows and articulate highs. The stylish graphite metallic paintwork is protected by a resilient coating of gloss polyurethane, which allows you to tear through sets in style.
Sturdy maple neck
Joined to the body is a sturdy maple neck, which is shaped to the slim "C"-shape profile to offer a comfortable playing support. The natural satin finish along the neck ensures that your hand can glide along with ease without unwanted stickiness or tackiness from impeding movement. The generous 25.5-inch scale length encourages the utmost clarity from each and every note. Paired with the neck is a sumptuous Indian laurel fingerboard, which is home to 21 narrow tall frets that are decorated with cream dot position inlays. The 12-inch fingerboard radius provides a flatter playing surface that accommodates speedy scale runs, lightning fast legato, elegant arpeggios and fast and furious chord chops.
SQR ceramic humbuckers
The Squier Contemporary Active Jazzmaster is equipped with a pair of SQR ceramic humbuckers, which run hot to produce gloriously raucous tones. If you're seeking model that can push it to the extremes, then this is the one for you. Powered by an active 9-volt circuit with corresponding master volume and master tone pots, this guitar can go for subtle to screaming with minimal effort. If you prefer your tone with an aggressive edge, then the Contemporary Active Jazzmaster is the ideal performance partner.
Fitted to the body is an adjustable bridge and stopbar tailpiece, which anchor each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain - no matter how hard you rock out. The standard die-cast tuning machines uphold tuning integrity dutifully, even for those who favour unconventional drop-tunings. The black chrome hardware complements the body and matching headstock finishes beautifully to maximise the brooding aesthetic.
