High-output ceramic single-coil pickups
The Squier Contemporary Jazz Bass delivers vibrant J Bass tones via a pair of ceramic single-coil pickups. Voiced for punchy lows and clear, articulate highs, these pickups offer ample output.
You'll notice that the Contemporary Jazz Bass boasts impressive resonance and sustain, and a big part of that is its redesigned bridge. And not only does this bridge maximize resonance and tone, it's also easier to restring and allows for precise intonation.
Slim C-shaped neck and 12" fretboard radius
While the feel of a bass guitar's neck is a matter of personal preference for any musician, many players at Sweetwater like the feel of the Contemporary Jazz Bass's Slim C-shaped neck profile. Topped with a 12"-radius fretboard, it offers easy playability and a fast, slim feel.
