Olympic White, with Fender Rumble 100 Bass Combo Amp
The Squier Vintage Modified Jazz V electric bass shows that five strings go a long way. This attractive axe features a sleek and comfortable Jazz Bass body carved from maple, a maple bolt-on neck topped with a maple fingerboard, 20 medium jumbo frets, a stylish 3-ply black pickguard, a pair of thumping Fender-Designed Jazz Bass single-coil pickups, independent volume controls to hone in on the right balance of each pickup, and a master tone control to brighten or darken your sound. This bass is great for jazz, but it pulls its weight proudly in pretty much any genre or style.
Lightweight Maple Jazz Bass Body
Maple guitar bodies will do a solid job of pushing those higher frequencies in a slightly rounded fashion that's never overbearing. When you play around with your master tone control, you'll hear those highs come out nicely when you brighten things up a bit. The classic J Bass body shape is a cozy fit and features a pleasant asymmetrical double-cutaway contour that welcomes your fingers to those higher frets. The 3-ply black pickguard offers an intriguingly stark contrast as well.
Bright and Snappy Maple Neck
The maple neck on your Squier Vintage Modified Jazz V electric bass follows in line with the soft maple body in keeping your output nice and bright. This slick neck is great for working on your speed and improving your chops. You have 20 medium jumbo frets at your fingertips over a maple fingerboard, each harnessing a tight and comfortable action for a smooth playing experience, and eye-catching block fretboard inlays to set this bass apart from the pack.
Fender-Designed Jazz Bass Single-Coil Pickups
Why settle for four strings when you can have five? You'll feel that extra low B string purr when you crank up both of this bass's Fender-Designed Jazz Bass single-coil pickups. Each note will boast a clear projection full of body and resonance. Dial in the combination of each pickup you're looking for via this baby's independent volume controls.
