Squier Contemporary Active Jazz HH Electric BassSquier
A daring reimagination of a rumbling classic, the Squier Contemporary Active Jazz Bass introduces enticing, cutting-edge features to a tried-and-true platform. With a matching headstock for a streamlined appearance and the stealthy vibe of black chrome hardware, this head-turning J Bass® is the embodiment of “bold.”
The Contemporary Active Jazz Bass caters to modern players with a 12”-radius maple fingerboard on a slim, modern “C”-shaped neck profile, providing fast and comfortable playability. At the heart of this monster is a pair of Squier SQR™ ceramic humbucking pickups that produce high fidelity tone great for any style. Further enhancing tone versatility is an active 9-volt preamp, offering intuitive controls for volume, pickup blend, traditional tone and stacked boost controls for bass and treble.
Condition: When this guitar came in from the factory, the only issue found by the authorized refurbisher was some damage to the finish on the back of the body. The refurbisher buffed it out and finished over it, so it's smooth to the touch, but has a cool "reliced" look to it. No other repairs were made to the bass. Aside from the back repair, it looks like new. Action at the 12th fret is currently set to 4/64" on both the bass and treble sides. Bass plays great with this set-up and the active pickups are very punchy! This is a very heavy guitar (almost 12 lbs), so you need a strong back for this axe. Back of the headstock is stamped "used" and original serial # has been replaced with a new one.
