Welcome to the Squier Contemporary series – a bold collection of ultra-modern guitars and basses that combine classic Fender design elements with contemporary features and aesthetics. The Squier Contemporary Active Precision Bass PH is an epitome of this exquisite series, appealing to the most discerning and daring of today’s players.

The design of this bass guitar begins with a Poplar body, renowned for its balanced tone. The body is paired with a sculpted neck heel, significantly improving access to the upper frets and unlocking new realms of playability.

The heart of the Squier Contemporary Active Precision Bass PH is furnished with a Squier SQR™ active ceramic humbucker and split single-coil pickup. These high-output pickups ensure a massive audio signal and maintain remarkable clarity and definition, perfect for musicians seeking a modern tone with a punch. This exceptional sound can be further honed and tweaked to your unique style, thanks to the active 9-volt preamp with volume, blend, tone, and bass/treble boost controls.

Complementing its tone capabilities, the bass features a “C” shaped roasted Maple neck. Roasting removes excess moisture from the wood, offering optimal stability and resistance to climatic changes, besides delivering a bright, enhanced presence. Coupled with a 12″ radius Indian Laurel fingerboard, you’ll experience a sleek and smooth playing experience.

A 4-saddle standard bridge is thoughtfully included to ensure precise intonation and maximum transference of string vibrations, while vintage-style tuners promise a smooth tuning action and effortless restringing. The black hardware, paired with a painted headstock with chrome logos, adds a stealthy aesthetic touch to this premium instrument, capturing attention and admiration from every angle.

The Squier® Contemporary Active Precision Bass® PH combines a revered design platform with modern features and bold aesthetics, delivering an unparalleled playing experience for the ambitious and audacious bassist. Unleash your creativity and define your unique tone with this versatile instrument.
