Squier Contemporary Active Jazz Bass HH
The Squier Contemporary Active Jazz Bass HH brings modern features and bold aesthetics to this icon! Fender designed this bass to punch well above its weight to satisfy today’s most discerning and daring players.
At the heart of this bass is a pair of Squier SQR™ ceramic humbucking pickups. These are powered by a Fender-designed active 9-volt preamp which offers intuitive controls. These are comprised of volume, pickup blend, traditional tone and stacked boost controls for bass and treble.
The roasted maple neck was chosen because of its optimal tone and stability. As well as this, the sculpted heel design allows for improved access to the upper frets.
High-performance components round out the feature list and include a modern bridge which adds mass and provides improved body resonance. Plus, there’s also a set of open-gear tuning machines for smooth tuning action. Eye-catching styling cues include stealthy black hardware and a sleek painted headstock with chrome logos, so you get a premium look.
