Squier releases two new Vintage Modified Series models 09-Aug-12
Squier has announced two new Vintage Modified Series models–the Vintage Modified Telecaster Bass and Vintage Modified Telecaster Bass Special, which they say present an exciting new sonic and stylish twist on a long-familiar design.
Squier says that the Vintage Modified Telecaster Bass sports a time-honored body and headstock shape that are well-balanced by a comfortable medium scale length (32") which will appeal to bassists and guitarists alike. They tell us that remarkable tonal versatility comes from a single powerful Duncan DesignedPB-102 SCPB single-coil pickup and three-way switching among special tone circuits, which feature a modern bass sound (middle switch position, volume and tone controls), softer "double bass" sound (neck switch position, volume control only) and authentic tic-tac "baritone" sound (bridge switch position, volume control only).
Armed with distinctive features and punchy humbucker sound, Squier says that the Vintage Modified Telecaster Bass Special features a comfortable medium scale length, large chrome-covered Fender-designed Wide Range humbucking neck pickup, Duncan Designed JB-102B single-coil Jazz Bass bridge pickup, and three-way blade switching (both pickups together and each pickup individually). Other features include black "barrel" switch tip, knurled chrome control knobs, vintage style bridge with four chrome saddles, vintage-styletuners and strap buttons, and single-ply pickguard.
Both models are available in Black and Vintage Blonde finishes.
