Description

Though known mostly for their affordable and yet distinguished guitars, Squier are also well known for their basses, and none more than the Jazz bass. An absolute stunner, the four string Squier Contemporary Active Jazz Bass HH is a twist on the rumbling classic, offering enormous tone and definitive playability.

Modern Twist

The central feature of this bass is the HH configuration. The Squier Contemporary Active Jazz bass is equipped with two Squier SQR ceramic humbucking pickups. Producing high-fidelity tone, these humbucking pickups can meet a variation of styles, with the dominant tone of forceful, heavy lows and rich highs. The tone is full and thick, which makes for a massive sound. However, Squier knew that with such a beast of a tone, the bass would need a certain level of control. The Squier Contemporary Active Jazz bass has an active 9-volt preamp, which offers intuitive controls for master volume, pickup blends, tone and also stacked boost controls for bass and treble. These means that with this bass, you have the power to manipulate the exceptional tone for any genre, any gig and any venue.

Great Look, Great Feel

Squier didn’t just leave the bass with good tone. It also feels great to play. The neck is a slim ‘C’ shape which is very popular for its ease of playability, allowing you as the player to perfectly cup the neck so that you can comfortably play for hours. Combined with this is the 12” radius fingerboard, which offers low and fast action. To top it all offer, this bass looks amazing and very elegant. The headstock matches the bass to give it a very smooth look, while all the chrome hardware is black, looking very refined.
