Fender never ceases to amaze me and they have done it again with the Squier Classic Vibe ‘70s Jazz Bass.
I remember years ago, everyone used to buy Squier basses and do mods on them, from changing hardware all the way to pickups and electronics. The Squier basses today are so cool and sound so great that you may want to think twice before modding.
Squier basses are designed in the same facility as Fender basses, by the same great Fender guys and gals.
When I first received the Squier Classic Vibe ‘70s Jazz Bass, I could have sworn I was playing it’s bigger brother, a Fender, and had to check the headstock a few times. This Squier bass is very well crafted, fun to play, sounds great, and as the name reveals, has that classic ‘70s look.
The Squier Classic Vibe ‘70s Jazz Bass is totally 100% designed by Fender, getting its inspiration from the Fender’s that were famous back in the 1970’s, right down to the headstock markings.
The jazz bass body shape is constructed of soft maple for the natural finish, and poplar for the 3-color sunburst and black finishes, completed with a gloss polyurethane finish. The “C” shape maple neck has a tinted gloss urethane finish and is completed with a 20-fret maple fingerboard that has black inlays and binding.
The electronics consist of Fender designed alnico single-coil pickups for the neck and bridge positions with separate volume control for each pickup and a master tone control. The bridge and tuners are vintage style with a nickel hardware finish.
The Squier Classic Vibe ‘70s Jazz Bass is available in three finishes, natural, 3 color sunburst, and black.
