Squier Contemporary Jazz Electric BassSquier
Adding a shot of modern playability and tone to a beloved classic, the Squier Contemporary Jazz Bass combines exciting new features with classic style for a beast of a bass that’s ready to rule the stage. Eye-catching appointments like a matching painted headstock for a cohesive aesthetic and brilliant chrome hardware are sure to command attention.
Player-centric specifications include a slim and fast "C"-shaped neck profile with a 12" fingerboard radius ideal for speed-demon bass runs, while a modern bridge provides titanic rumble with optimal stability. Featuring two Squier ceramic single-coil pickups with a standard Jazz Bass control layout, the Contemporary Jazz Bass is primed to revolutionize.
Condition: When this guitar came in from the factory, the only issue found by the authorized refurbisher was a small ding on the side of the body near the bottom strap button. The ding was expertly repaired - completely sealed and re-finished (see photo). No other repairs or modifications were made to the guitar. Aside from the minor side repair, the guitar looks mint. When we received the guitar, we adjusted the neck and set the action to 5/64" (bass side) and 4/64" (treble side). Bass plays great with this set-up and all electronics are in perfect working order. Back of the headstock is stamped "used" and original serial # has been replaced with a new one.
