      Squier

      A bass built for the player on a budget who isn't willing to compromise on sound or style.

      Squier is very proud to introduce its new Telecaster Bass Special, which presents an exciting new sonic and stylish twist on a long-familiar design.

      Its time-honored body and headstock shape are well balanced by a comfortable medium scale length (32") that will appeal to bassists and guitarists alike. Remarkable tonal versatility comes from its large chrome-covered Fender-designed Wide Range humbucking neck pickup, Duncan Designed JB-102B single-coil Jazz Bass bridge pickup, and three-way blade switching (both pickups together and each pickup individually).

      Other distinctive features include black "barrel" switch tip, knurled chrome control knobs, vintage style bridge with four chrome saddles, vintage-style tuners and strap buttons, and single-ply pickguard (white on Black model, black on Vintage Blonde model).

          Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Bass Special:

          I have owned several vintage "Real" Fender basses and I am glad to say that this is just as good as my old P Bass and old Jazz Special. Way better than I thought could be possible for the money. For someone like myself that is playing now just for fun it's a no-brainer. That being said I wouldn't hesitate to gig or record with this bass. My back probably wouldn't agree after about the 3rd set though.

          Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Bass Special:

          This bass is really fun to play with. The medium scale is not that far removed from regular long scales but feels comfortable. I love the maple neck. The sound, with the 3-position switch, is incredible. For the amount paid, it is a GREAT bass guitar.

              Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Bass Special:

              Finally a Tele shaped bass from Fender ! although it is badged Squier, the quality is every bit as good as a Fender badged bass. Really cool to play and once you have the humbucker cranked down and balanced with the Jazz pickup ,and you get to know it, it is a surprising versatile bass.
              StackKnob controls on this would be great....

              Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Bass Special:

              I bought this bass about 2 months ago and I absolutely love it, it has an awesome tone, awesome feel, and great for the price. I will say its a little heavy but when I started playing bass I started out with a fairly heavy 5 string bass so this is nothing compared to the other one, but if you are contemplating on buying this dont, if you dont want to spend a lot of money and want a great bass you should get this.

                Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Bass Special:

                Monster sound. The humbucker has a deep, deep full hair stand up on the back of your head beautiful tone. The tone control works on both picups as opposed to the 1 pickup model, which is good. The two pups together added a little bit of high end snap to the sound, astoundingly beautiful. The single coil by itself sounds just like you would think....thin and crisp, very nice sound for that type of tone.

                Just a note: the single coil when engaged either together or alone can create some buzz if you get too close to your amp. A few feet away, no problem.

                Workmanship is excellent, beautiful color, I can't say enough good things about this bass.

                I had to do a slight neck adjustment and lower the strings at the bridge, but other than that, astounding bass for the cash laid out.

                  I admit I was first attracted by the look - a real telecaster bass - but the more I use it the better I like it. Neck pick up has more deep bass thump than my Gibson SG bass; bridge pickup gets that thinner Jazz bridge tone. Between them lots of sounds are possible. 32" scale is a nice fit for my old hands. Only drawback is the weight; it is heavy so get a good strap. Love it.
