About Squier Contemporary Jazz Bass

The Squier Contemporary Jazz Bass is a sleek, ultra-modern bass, suited to aggressive, high gain styles.

The Contemporary Jazz Bass takes an old vintage style and reimagines it as a razor-sharp instrument with a stylish, edgy look. Matching headstocks and metallic finishes give it a bold, modern look. Perfect for bassists who want to stand out from the crowd!

There are two versions of Squier Contemporary Jazz Bass: a passive model with single coils and an active model with humbuckers.

Don’t be fooled into thinking the passive single coils are vintage sounding. These are hot ceramic pickups with buckets of aggressive top end.

The Squier Contemporary Active Jazz Bass has SQR ceramic humbucking pickups. These pass through a 9v active preamp to create a devilishly powerful tone, not for the faint of heart.

There is also an ‘FSR’ Limited Edition 5 string Contemporary Active Jazz Bass so you can have all that searing power with an extended range. Perfect for modern metal.
