Dual Squier SQR ceramic humbuckers drive this sleek, powerhouse sound machine.

The Squier Contemporary Active Jazz Bass HH V 5-string is driven by a pair of Squier SQR ceramic humbucking pickups, powered by a Fender-designed active 9-volt preamp. Enjoy easy sound customization with intuitive controls for volume, pickup blend, traditional tone and stacked boost controls for bass and treble. Its roasted maple neck was chosen for optimal tone and stability, and the sculpted heel design allows for improved access to the upper frets. Additional components include a modern bridge with added mass for improved body resonance, and 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 for a premium look.


  • Poplar top and body with a gloss polyurethane finish
  • Bolt-on roasted maple neck
  • Roasted maple fingerboard with 20 narrow-tall frets
  • Dual Squier SQR ceramic humbucking pickups
