Squier Jazz Bass Guitars

The Jazz Bass came about as a follow up to the hugely successful Precision Bass. Hitting the market in 1960 the Jazz Bass was designed to appeal to, you guessed it, jazz players. While the Jazz Bass has been popular in jazz genres it has also been hugely influential in the genres of funk, reggae and certain styles of rock. Famous Jazz Bass players include Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Jaco Pistorius, Geddy Lee (Rush), Noel Redding (The Jimi Hendrix Experience), Adam Clayton (U2) and more.

The Jazz Bass differs from the Precision as it has a slightly offset body and generally a slimmer, narrower neck which is very comfortable to play.  The most important difference is, of course, the sound. With two single-coil pickups that you can blend together, you get a great deal of tonal variety in one bass. The Jazz Bass is known for its punchy midrange tone, particularly its tight bridge pickup tone. It also has a more articulate sound than the warm, rounded

Precision tone.

With the Squier basses, you get that classic Jazz Bass tone at a more affordable price than their Fender counterparts. There's plenty of models to choose from so pick the one that suits you the best and start playing!
