2013 Squire Vintage Modified Bass Guitars
This instrument allows bassists to enjoy a time-honored body and headstock shape that are usually only available to guitarists.
This bass guitar has a basswood body with a telecaster single cut-away shape. It has a maple neck that is C shaped, which can let your groovy bass riffs run comfortably across its 32" scale length. You have 20 medium jumbo frets to play with.
The Vintage Modified Telecaster Bass Special feature enhanced versatility, thanks to its unusual bass pickup combination. The bass is equipped with a Fender-designed wide range humbucking pickup on the neck and a Duncan designed PB-102 SCPB single-coil pickup on the bridge. A three way pickup selector lets you switch between pickups or combine them to create various bass tone flavors.
Other features of the Telecaster Bass Special include a black “barrel” switch tip, vintage style bridge with four chrome saddles, knurled chrome control knobs, vintage-style tuners and strap buttons, and a single-ply pickguard.
A single pickup version called Vintage Modified Telecaster Bass is also available. It features a three-way switching special tone circuit which according to Squier feature a modern bass sound (middle switch position, volume and tone controls), softer "double bass" sound (neck switch position, volume control only) and authentic tic-tac "baritone" sound (bridge switch position, volume control only).
Both of the Telecaster Bass models are available in Black and Vintage Blonde Polyurethane finishes. Pricing information is not yet available.

When you consider how much time and effort you put into getting your rig to sound just the way you want, it makes sense to ensure your guitar cables are also up to the job - after all they're an important part of the tone chain. Also remember that occasionally things will go wrong, so always carry at least one spare cable to gigs and rehearsals.
