The first instruments to bear the Squier name were introduced in 1982, answering the call for genuine Fender designs at accessible prices. The Squier 40th Anniversary collection celebrates the 40-year journey of Fender’s entry-level brand with special editions of the Telecaster, Stratocaster, Jazzmaster, Precision Bass, and Jazz Bass, all available in Gold Edition and Vintage Edition variants.
The Squier 40th Anniversary Jazz Bass, Vintage Edition is a soulful tribute model trimmed with a collection of classic features for the retro-minded Squier enthusiast. Featuring aged chrome hardware, an anodised aluminium pickguard, a vintage-tinted maple neck, an engraved anniversary neck plate and satin finish throughout, this J Bass honours the heritage of the Squier catalog and its ancestry. Player-friendly refinements of this commemorative model include a slim and comfortable “C”-shaped neck profile for an easy playing feel, vintage-style tuning machines and 4-saddle bridge with barrel saddles for authentic performance and style, and Fender-Designed single-coil pickups with alnico 5 magnets for familiar J Bass tone.

Quite often, something perceived as a fault is as simple as a faulty cable or power issue so we always suggest checking over Frequently Asked Questions on the manufacturer website first. It can be a helpful approach to getting to the bottom of a problem and save you a lot of time in getting your gear back up and running!
