Squier have added two new Telecaster basses to the Vintage Modified Series
Squier have revealed two Vintage Modified Telecaster basses for those players who like a traditional style guitar but with the added advantage of modern attributes.
First up they introduce the new Telecaster Bass, with classic body and headstock shape and comfy medium scale length (32”).
One single powerful Duncan Designed PB-102 SCPB single-coil pickup gives it some grunt and there's also three-way switching among specialtone circuits, with 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).
Other features include black “barrel” switch tip, knurled chrome control knobs, vintage style bridge with two brass saddles, vintage-style tuners and strap buttons, and single-ply pickguard (white on Black model, black on Vintage Blonde model).
Next up, is the new Squier Telecaster Bass Special with iconic body and headstock shape and also with a medium scale length (32”).
Lowe end tones are achieved via the 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-style tuners and strap buttons, and single-ply pickguard (white on Black model, black on Vintage Blonde model).
There are no prices availble as of yet but there's more info at www.fender.com
