Fully set up by our in-house guitar tech. B-stock model with slight laquare crack on the heel joint, which is common amongst some Squier instruments - Does not affect the playability of the instrument.
The Squier Paranormal Jazz Bass '54 blends two of Fender's most recognisable 4-string models together. Combining the Jazz Bass' offset body, versatile pickup configuration and slim playable neck with the traditional pickguard design and control plate of the iconic '54 Precision Bass - this classy hybrid instrument really stands out from the crowd!
Squier's Paranormal Series Jazz Bass '54 features a Poplar body; a balanced-sounding material that serves as an excellent tonal foundation for the punchy J-style single-coil pickups. A light material too, this makes the Squier '54 Jazz Bass a great live workhorse!
Joined with a bolt-on Maple neck, this wood brings in some crisp top-end that offers a fast and snappy response - even when playing finger-style licks. Fitted with 'Narrow Tall' frets and featuring a narrow 1.5" nut width, the playability of this bass is simply sublime with its comfortable "C"-shaped neck profile also sure to appeal to modern players and traditionalists alike.

With these hot yet versatile pickups, you can expect classic Jazz Bass tonal potency with plenty of articulation.
