The Squier Contemporary Jazz Bass Electric Guitar in Dark Metallic Red takes the classic style of the beloved Jazz Bass and pairs it with modern appointments to create a gig-ready performer of the highest order.

Delightful Jazz Bass style

The Squier Contemporary Jazz Bass is shaped to the classic offset waist design that has defined this classic. Originally designed to offer a comfortable playing feel for bassists performing either seated or standing, the Jazz Bass features bevelled edges and curves in all the right places to maximise playability. The Contemporary Jazz Bass is built using poplar for the body, which offers a lightweight feel with a tonally balanced output preferring a midrange emphasis. The stylish dark metallic red 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 maximise playing comfort. Thanks to the natural satin finish, your fretting hand can shift seamlessly along the generous 34-inch scale length unimpeded. Paired with the neck is a sumptuous Indian laurel fingerboard, which is home to 20 narrow tall frets that are adorned with cream dot position inlays to guide your way. The 12-inch fingerboard radius provides a flatter playing surface for lower, faster action that pairs beautifully with the slim profile.

Ceramic single-coils

The Squier Contemporary Jazz Bass boasts a pair of ceramic single-coil pickups that are capable of producing fearsome low-end energy, thumping midrange power and enviably crisp highs. Control over your output comes in the form of independent volume controls for each pickup, as well as a master tone pot for intricate tone-shaping. Whatever style of music you decide to tackle, the Contemporary Jazz Bass can do it all.

Gig-ready hardware

Fitted to the body is a 4-saddle bridge, which anchors each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain - no matter how hard you rock out. The standard open-gear tuning machines uphold tuning integrity dutifully, even for those who favour unconventional drop-tunings. The chrome hardware and 3-ply parchment pickguard complement the body and matching headstock finishes beautifully to maximise the exuberant visual aesthetic.
