Classic Fender looks plus the best of Precision and Jazz Bass tones.
No bassist should ever be left behind. That's one of the founding principles behind Squier electric basses, which were created by Fender to make their legendary bass guitars accessible to every musician who wants to play one. With dozens of choices based on the Jazz Bass, Precision Bass, Telecaster Bass and Jaguar Bass, Squier makes it easier than it's ever been to get your hands on these classic instruments. Squier has always been a name associated with strings, dating back to its origins building violins in the 1800s. Later, the company moved on to making strings for all kinds of different instruments, including the guitar and bass. By 1963, Squier had become the primary string maker for Fender, and within two years the company was brought into the Fender family. Growing competition from imitation brands gave Fender the opportunity to bring back the Squier name in 1982, when they released a new line of Squier-branded instruments as affordable options to go toe-to-toe with the knock-offs. Today, the Squier lineup is a well-respected and widely-endorsed part of Fender's electric bass catalog.
For the beginning bassist, Squier basses are the perfect way to get in on the ground floor of Fender design. Instruments like the Affinity Series Jazz Bass and Bronco Bass are excellent choices for a first bass, as they are easy to play and built to last. Squier also comes through in fine style for the more experienced musician looking for an economical road instrument with basses like the Vintage Modified line, which offers a Telecaster Bass and a fretless Jazz Bass, to name just two examples.
Even a signature instrument is well within the scope of Squier's electric basses. The roster of Squier artists transcends genres, from metal in Mastodon bassist Troy Sanders' signature Jaguar to punk with a P-bass for Green Day's Mike Dirnt. Also rocking a signature P-bass is Eva Gardner, whose resume is a real showcase of versatility, having played with the Mars Volta, Veruca Salt, Pink, Telstar and Lyra. The diverse styles of Squier signature artists reflect the limitless possibilities these instruments offer.
Whether you're taking your first steps into the world of the bass or simply looking for an instrument you can take anywhere, Squier is ready to provide. Even with a different name on the headstock, a Fender is a Fender, and you'll hear the evidence of that with every note you play on your new Squier bass.
