The Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass Special in Black is a short scale-length instrument that delivers a full tone and playing experience. Based on the Fender Jaguar guitar, this bass goes far beyond what you'd expect a 'student' model to be with its versatile tones and smooth playability. The Jaguar Bass Special is loaded with both a Jazz Bass Single Coil and a vintage-style Precision Bass split-coil pickup; this combination lets you create both vintage and modern sounds allowing you to play in almost any genre of music. The maple neck has a comfortable "C"-shaped profile while the short 30'' scale-length gives a "slinkier" feel with a smaller fret-size across the fingerboard - perfect for young players or for those who prefer the compact dimensions of a shorter neck. The guitar is designed to mimic the Jaguar guitar, with many visual design-choices hinting towards the look of the '60s. If you're seeking a super-versatile bass guitar with an easier playing-feel than tractional scale length instruments, the Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass Special has the tonal range and great aesthetics to make a big impression despite its small size.
