Upgraded features and signature Jazz Bass sound in a sleek, gold-accented anniversary model.

For the past 40 years, Squier by Fender has been creating instruments played by hundreds of thousands of guitarists from beginners to pros. To celebrate that anniversary, the Squier/Fender design team has put together some spectacular instruments. The Squier 40th Anniversary Gold Series Jazz Bass brings together upscale looks, player-friendly features and all the slinky J Bass tone you could possibly want.

Vintage Curves in a New Wood

While traditional J Basses have been poplar, alder or ash body guitars, the Squier 40th Anniversary Gold Series Jazz Bass uses nato, a wood frequently referred to as Eastern mahogany. Nato has the warmth often associated with mahogany, but it adds a crispness that's a perfect complement for the tonal palette of the Jazz Bass. Nato has the benefit of being a more sustainable wood as well, making it a real win-win situation. All the 40th Anniversary Gold Series feature a beautiful and durable gloss finish in several striking colors.

Fast and Comfortable Neck

With a 34"-scale, C-profile maple neck and bound 9.5"-radius Indian laurel fingerboard, you'll find the neck smooth, fast and easy to play. Adding premium pearloid block inlays and a bone nut, you'll find the traditional 20-fret configuration looks as great as it plays, making the Gold Series Jazz Bass an extraordinary instrument that celebrates of the history of Squier.

Alnico 5 Pickups for Classic Tone

When it comes to pickups—the heart of any electric guitar— the Squier 40th Anniversary Gold Series Jazz Bass stays classic, with a pair of Fender-designed Alnico 5 single coils for that sweetly singing J Bass tone. The bridge pickup layers on the articulation you want, while the neck pickup can go as low as you need.

A Bass You'll Play for Years

The hardware of the 40th Anniversary Gold Series Jazz Bass is its defining trait. Gold plated and gleaming from headstock to strap button, with a gold-anodized pickguard and engraved 40th Anniversary neck plate, it catches and holds the eye, and you'll look as good playing it as you sound. Add this one to your collection, and you'll understand why so many players over the decades have kept a Squier in their collection—for the sheer fun of playing one.
