Classic vibe with modern refinements.

The Squier Classic Vibe Jazz Bass '60s is an electric bass guitar that has all of the deluxe elements its Fender big brother did when first introduced in the 1960s: groovy offset waist design, narrow width, fast-action maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, 2 custom single-coil pickups with Alnico V magnets, individual volume controls that allow you to solo either pickup's sound or blend them for new sounds, and a master tone control for overall tone shaping.

The look is Fender all the way - Inca Silver over basswood with a traditional tortoiseshell pickguard with thumb rest. Features include a HiMass bridge with brass barrel saddles, rosewood 20-fret vintage tint gloss maple neck with the modern playability of a 9.5" radius, and vintage-style frets. Tonal versatility and an up front sound - quick and punchy with enough clarity and harmonics to slap and pop.

Back in 1982, the very first Squier by Fender guitars and basses came ringing out of Asia. Known for their excellent vintage-quality look, feel, sound and construction, those early Squier instruments and their Fender-branded counterparts are now highly sought-after collector's items revered by guitar enthusiasts as models of getting it right while aiming at value-conscious players.

The Squier Classic Vibe Series reflects that simultaneous commitment to excellence, value and 'vibe'. Mirroring classic Fender designs, the Classic Vibe offering is not intended to be era or vintage correct, but rather imparting the 'vibe' of a classic Fender design. Each with distinctive feature set combinations - all adding up to one classic looking instrument.

  • Great bass for the money

    As reviewed by mike faulkner on 4/21/2009

    Hi everyone. If you are looking for a great low priced bass, look no further. It truly has that "Classic Vibe" The fit and finish is flawless, I realy like the vintage tint on the neck. The tone is great for any style. It has that classic Larry Graham slap tone. The bridge pickup has a nice growl which I like. You may want to change the pickups if you plan to record with this bass. I swapped mine out with some EMG HZ passive jazz pickups which gives it a whole new range of tonal capabilities and alot more punch, and they are supper quite. When I was checking it out, it only took me 10 minutes of playing it and I knew I was taking it home. It sounded better than the Fender mexican standard that was hanging next to it. I would recommend this bass to anyone no matter what your skill level is. It is truly a great bass.

  • Much More Than What You'd Expect

    As reviewed by Jason on 3/18/2010

    WHAT I WANTED: A decent Fender Jazz Bass but I was convinced with saving money and still getting what I wanted in a Squier. PURPOSE: For small gigs, demo recording studio, jam. WHAT I EXPECTED: A semi decent body and finish, an okay neck with some fret bite but nothing serious, not so great pickups but something I can live with or replace them out of pocket. WHAT I GOT: Awsome neck. NO fret bite at all! Squier logo isn't cheap looking it really has a vintage vibe look. The neck finish has an amazing looking vintage tint to it. The tuners are awsome, the body is light and the white finish is brilliant. The pickups sound great for what I paid and I'll leave them stock. Set up new out of the box in the mail was not so great. It was raspy and buzzed so I raised the action and the buzz is almost gone but I don't like the height of the strings now. I think it just needs a proper set up and it's ready to go. It's an amazing add to my guitar collection and I'll have it for a while. I may never need to replace it. I would highly recommend this bass for beginners and experienced players alike and I would suggest looking at the Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass too for a similar price range. But as for the Classic Vibe 60's - Best bang for the buck Jazz Bass I've ever played.

  • Its a Squier?

    As reviewed by Tylerr S on 5/30/2010

    After reading tons about it on line i finally decided to stop at Guitar Center and pick one up. While playing it there I couldnt believe how good it sounded. It had great tone, and the sound was very beefy. also the neck felt great if not better than a fender jazz I played a few months back. I instantly bought it and got a 15% off due to one of Guitar Centers great sales and got it home hassle free. When i got it home I noticed its crystal clear sound which really got me happy. You can get many different sounds out of it too. Its currently set to neck- 12 oclock, Bridge- 8 oclock, and tone around 3 oclock. this was a GREAT purchase due to its low price and great sound.
