Based on James Johnston's custom axe, the Squier® James Johnston Jazz Bass® solidbody 4-string bass guitar gives you the look, style, and sound of Biffy Clyro, one of Britain's foremost contemporary pop/rock acts. From its headstock to its traditional J Bass® body, the James Johnston Jazz Bass is finished in beautiful Lake Placid Blue, giving it a look straight out of classic FENDER® history. A pair of custom J Bass pickups give you the timeless clarity and dynamic depth you'd expect from a high-end model, and its HiMass™ bridge adds serious sustain to every note you play. Any way you look at it, the Squier James Johnston Jazz Bass is an amazing instrument for the money.
Squier James Johnston Jazz Bass Solidbody 4-string Bass Guitar at a Glance:
Cool custom touches add extra class to this signature J Bass
At first glance, it's hard to put you finger on exactly what makes the Squier James Johnston Jazz Bass jump out from the crowd. That's because the James Johnston Jazz Bass's painted headstock simply looks right, and yet, it's one of those rare accents you typically won't find on a non Custom Shop J Bass®. Another similarly uncommon and cool appointment is the James Johnston Jazz Bass's rosewood fingerboard. These are just two of the unique touches the James Johnston Jazz Bass borrows from Johnston's own custom Fender J Bass.
Custom Jazz Bass pickups deliver tried-and-true single-coil sound
When James Johnston ordered his own custom Jazz Bass®, one of the most important upgrade he added was a set of special pickups. In a similar spirit, Squier upgraded the pickups in their James Johnston Jazz Bass, giving you access to a broader and richer version of the single-coil sound that defines the Jazz Bass in all or its iconic glory. If you want the smooth, clear, and dynamic sound of a traditional J Bass®, then you'll love rocking out with your Squier James Johnston Jazz Bass®.
HiMass bridge with bronze saddles provides epic sustain with every note
One of the things that contributes the tonal depth and overall sound of Squier's James Johnston Jazz Bass is its far from standard bridge. Instead of a traditional J Bass bridge, Squier gave this axe a special HiMass bridge, which allow better string-to-string vibration transfer than a standard model. The James Johnston Jazz Bass's HiMass bridge also features bronze saddles, which add a hint of color and added attack to your sound.
