[NAMM] New Squier Vintage Modified Models
Squier introduces a trio of new Vintage Modified series instruments for 2011—two guitars and a bass.
With its offset waist and contoured body, the new Vintage Modified Jazzmaster guitar honors its Fender forerunner, with a few hot-rodded touches included. Custom Duncan Designed pickups with vintage tone (neck) and higher output (bridge) produce tones ranging from "glassy smooth to jangly rocking rhythm crunch," according to Squier. Other features include a one-piece maple neck, ’62 Jazz Bass stacked concentric volume/tone controls, top-loading hard-tail bridge and vintage-style tuners.
The Vintage Modified Jaguar HH guitar offers many of the same features found on the Vintage Modified Jazzmaster, including the offset waist and contoured body, ’62 Jazz Bass stacked concentric volume/tone controls, top-loading hard-tail bridge and vintage-style tuners. Its special features include a 24”-scale fast action maple neck with rosewood fretboard, dual Duncan Designed humbucking pickups, and a three-position toggle pickup switch on the upper horn.
Squier’s all-new Vintage Modified Jazz Bass and Vintage Modified Jazz Bass Left Handed guitars feature the offset-waist body and slim fast-action neck that the model is famous for. Modern hot-rod touches include a pair of Duncan Designed JB101 single-coil Jazz Bass pickups. Other features include basswood body with Three-Color Sunburst polyester finish, “C”-shaped maple neck, 9.5”-radius rosewood fretboard with medium jumbo frets, three-ply tortoiseshell pickguard, standard four-saddle bridge and chrome hardware.
