Fender have recently expanded their value for money Squire Contemporary Series with four new models that had their first outing at Summer NAMM in Nashville earlier this month. The lineup includes all-new Jazz Bass and Jazzmaster models with a more up to date look and feel about them.

The Contemporary Active Jazzmaster HH ST looks as sinister as it sounds, sporting a matching headstock for a sleek aesthetic and black chrome hardware for a stealthy vibe. Powered by an active 9-volt circuit, the dual SQR™ ceramic humbucking pickups produce high-output tone ideal for crunchy rhythms and screaming solos. With a fast playing “C”-shape neck and stopbar tailpiece for stable tuning, this trailblazing rendition of a Fender classic is packed with player-centric features.

The embodiment of bold, the new Contemporary Jazz Bass combines exciting new features with classic style for a beast of a bass that’s ready to rule the stage. Eye-catching appointments like a matching painted headstock for a cohesive aesthetic and brilliant chrome hardware are sure to command attention. Featuring two Squier ceramic single-coil pickups with a standard Jazz Bass control layout, the Contemporary Jazz Bass is primed to revolutionise.

Available in 4- and 5- string versions, the Contemporary Active Jazz Bass features all-new Matte Black and Matte White finishes and Squier SQR™ ceramic humbucking pickups that produce high fidelity tone great for any style. Further enhancing tone versatility is an active 9-volt preamp, offering intuitive controls for volume, pickup blend, traditional tone and stacked boost controls for bass and treble.
