Presenting the Squier® Contemporary Active Precision Bass® PH V, a fusion of bold aesthetics and modern functionality crafted for today’s most discerning and audacious musicians. This remarkable bass guitar transcends traditional craftsmanship, employing an iconic Fender platform while introducing innovative elements that cater to contemporary tastes.
Nestled within the heart of this instrument are the Squier SQR™ ceramic split single-coil and humbucking bridge pickups, which are turbocharged by a Fender-designed active 9-volt preamp. This powerful combination paves the way for controls that manage volume, pickup blend, traditional tone, and stacked boost for bass and treble, allowing musicians to sculpt and control their sound with ease and precision.
The Squier Contemporary Active Precision Bass® PH V boasts a roasted maple neck, chosen specifically for its superior tone and stability. The design also incorporates a sculpted neck heel, improving access to the upper frets for an enhanced playing experience. The bass’s high-performance components include a modern bridge, which offers added mass to boost body resonance, and open-gear tuning machines that provide smooth tuning action.
The Squier bass guitar also stands out with its striking design elements. The black hardware creates a sleek, stealthy look, which is amplified by a stylishly painted headstock that showcases chrome logos for a premium finish.
The Squier SQR™ ceramic pickups deliver a high-output, modern tone, producing punchy lows and crystal-clear highs that will bring your music to life. The active 9-volt bass preamp, designed exclusively by Fender, is both versatile and user-friendly, boasting controls for master volume, pickup blend, tone, and bass/treble boost.
The roasted maple neck is not just aesthetically pleasing with its rich color, but it also offers an articulate tone and optimal stability, making it a premium material choice. In contrast, the modern bridge is designed with extra mass to ensure optimal body resonance, which translates to a bigger and better tone.
The Indian Laurel fingerboard, coupled with the sleek “C” shaped roasted maple neck, offers a smooth playing experience. The 20-fret fingerboard is adorned with pearloid dot inlays, adding a touch of classic elegance. The body, made of Poplar, is covered in a gloss polyurethane finish, complementing the Precision Bass® body shape beautifully.
The Squier® Contemporary Active Precision Bass® PH V also boasts a 5-Saddle Standard Bridge and a 1-Ply Anodized Aluminum Pickguard, providing additional durability and protection to the instrument. The bass is outfitted with knurled dome control knobs, and its hardware comes in a chic black finish, lending to its overall stealthy aesthetics.
The Squier® Contemporary Active Precision Bass® PH V is not just a musical instrument, but an art piece that provides a unique blend of functionality, durability, and style. This bass guitar, with its comprehensive set of features and stunning looks, is set to take center stage, enhancing your performance like never before.
