Overview

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.

Squire is no long the Cheap version of Fenders!

By Boone382

from West Haven,CT

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Jazz Bass '60s Bass Guitar:

The sound is pretty amazing and if you don't look at the headstock you'll forget your even playing a squire. It's pretty much standard jazz bass functions with a nice look to it, added with a HiMass bridge so say goodbye to those old standard squire bridges. I just needed a back up for my Musicman Sterling but this is something I would gig with and i've been using this bass primarily for the last 2 days! If ppl loved squires "Vintage Modified" series lookout and prepare to be blown away by the "Classic Vibe" series. Just one last note, i'm not a big fan of glossy necks but this one feels similar to the jaguar neck and I can see it getting sticky as you gig on for hours but no big deal.

Great bass for the money

By mike faulkner

from bourbon

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Jazz Bass '60s Bass Guitar:

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.

The Classic Vibe has got some Soul!

By Walkin the Groove

from Richmond, Virginia

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Jazz Bass '60s Bass Guitar:

BUY THIS BASS NOW!!! Now that I have your attention I will sum this up nicely with one statement. This is the overseas version of an American Vintage Jazz. The entire fit and finish is top notch and worthy of being considered a higher priced model. I have replaced my Hamer USA custom with the Squire Classic Vibe Jazz as my primary Bass. Everything is great right from the go. All I did was replace the strings with my personal faves and have just rolled on from there. If I do anything it will be a little pickup replacement with some Lindy Fralin's but that is only a wish, not a need. I seriously think that Fender may come to their senses and discontinue this baby so I say jump on one as soon as you can. You will not be disappointed.

Why a deflated rating

By P. J. McK.

from St.Marys, GA

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Jazz Bass '60s Bass Guitar:

Recently, I tried out the Classic Vibe Jazz Bass at a music store, and was truly impressed. In my opinion, the Jazz Bass was always the all-around super bass and the bass-counterpart of the Stratocaster (my favorite guitar). The Jazz Bass has a wider variety of tones than the Precision Bass. The action is great. The controls are nicely responsive and the looks are so sweet. Chrome replacement covers for the bridge and pickup would give this bass a true retro-look. If I didn't already have 10 electric basses (and a wife who is easily displeased whenever I bring home a new musical instrument), the Classic Vibe Jazz Bass (with the additional chrome hardware) would be in my collection. As for the 4 Star rating, I do not give any instrument a 5 Star rating without first subjecting it to a "gig test." As others have noted, the Squire brand is a respectable brand. If you want a Fender guitar or bass and don't want to finance an Ivy league college education for Leo's grandkids, check out the Squire line of instruments!

Much More Than What You'd Expect

By Jason

from Nashville TN

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Jazz Bass '60s Bass Guitar:

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.

2008 Classic Vibe Jazz Bass

By KDH

from Reading, PA

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Jazz Bass '60s Bass Guitar:

The finish is flawless, no dents, dimples or edge lines. The neck pocket has a nice crisp sharp edge with no chips or dings. The neck finish is also flawless. The frets are just a little sharp on the ends but no more than a lot of more expensive guitars. The PU's are alnico singles and sound very good. The tuners hold tune precisely and the bridge is one hunk of metal. Set up as bought was pretty good, no buzz or rattles. I lessened neck relief just a little bit but otherwise left as is.

Nice bass and not just "for the money"

By Brad D.

from Northern, Virginia

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Jazz Bass '60s Bass Guitar:

The vintage tint and highly laquered neck is attractive and plays easily. The pickups are well-balanced and are equal in volume with good output, while retaining all the classic Jazz Bass tones you want out of an instrument like this. The paint/finish/workmanship is good, and only at the neck/body joint do you see evidence of an inexpensive instrument. This is to be expected, perhaps. The instrument is weighted nicely and the hardware does not seem cheap or cheezy. I bought this as a "backup bass" of sorts, and I have used it as my main bass on a few gigs since I've had it. New Fender American Standard Jazz Basses are fine, but this instrument really will make you think hard about this question: "Are the Am Std. Jazz Basses REALLY $1,000 (or more) better???" I say no, and I think you will too.

It's amazing

By Kevin Myers

from mohnton, PA

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Jazz Bass '60s Bass Guitar:

I got this guitar for my birthday. I was surprised at this bass! It has a clear tone, It is extremely cheap, and for the price it is a steal! I find this squire much better than Schecters ive played, and it has a smooth tone and a new yet worn feel. And again, for the price this is an excellent guitar!

absolutely amazing!

By david K

from CT

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Jazz Bass '60s Bass Guitar:

I just began playing bass, and i have tested out other electric basses like the T-bird and the Flea bass model 32, but as soon as i plugged this into the amp at Guitar Center, i KNEW this was the one. dont let its brand name get you down-its not its Fender big brother, but its definitely high quality like Fender. This is my first bass and i would absolutely recommend this to other bass beginners.

Nice price

By John

from mohnton PA

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Jazz Bass '60s Bass Guitar:

eh, its the invincible bass every gigman wants. i got this bass a year ago and at first seemed like it would compare to fender, except i found a few flaws. this bass is not friendly to slap players as the strings have a nasty habit of popping right out of the nut. i alo found myself replacing the strings after a few gigs. it is also hard to keep in tune. The good things about this bass is the neck, ultra smooth and easy to navigate, and the pickups which have a bright tone that is hard to beat. the best thing about this bass is that it is indestructable, i have dropped it many times, without a single scratch. i love this bass!
