Scottsdale, AZ (August 4, 2013) -- Squier by Fender is proud to welcome 15 new models to the Vintage Modified family. From upgrades to fretless basses, to left-handed models and Fender’s classic Vintage Modified Bass VI, Squier’s arsenal of new products offers something for everyone. New and upgraded models include:

Vintage Modified Cabronita Telecaster. The Squier Vintage Modified Cabronita Telecaster rocks a welcome shot of high-powered Cabronita attitude in an already-cool Vintage Modified Telecaster. Two full-voiced and stylish Fideli’Tron humbucking pickups more than get the job done, with three-way toggle pickup switching and a single knurled-chrome master volume knob for a distinctive look. Available in Black.

Vintage Modified Cabronita Telecaster with Bigsby. Squier’s Vintage Modified Cabronita Telecaster with Bigsby offers a Fideli’Tron humbucking neck pickup and standard single-coil Telecaster bridge pickup with three-way toggle pickup switching, a single knurled-chrome master volume knob, and a Bigbsy-licensed B50 vibrato tailpiece. Available in Black.

Vintage Modified Cabronita Precision Bass. The Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass comes out swinging with pulse-pounding tone, sultry-yet-simple style and a welcome dose of feisty Cabronita attitude. Might have something to do with its single powerful Fideli’Tron humbucking bass pickup. Available in Black.

Vintage Modified Precision Bass V. Squier now delivers pure P Bass power and extended range with the Vintage Modified Precision Bass V. It’s Squier’s first true five-string model, with a wealth of vintage-style touches combined with modded features including a Fender-designed split single-coil Precision Bass pickup and a comfortable “modern C” neck profile. Available in Candy Apple Red, Olympic White and 3-Color Sunburst.

Vintage Modified Precision Bass Fretless. Squier proudly presents its first-ever fretless Precision Bass model, the sleek Vintage Modified Precision Bass Fretless. It delivers the knockout punch of a Fender-designed split single-coil Precision Bass pickup, combined with the deliciously slippery tone and feel of a 9.5”-radius fretless ebonol fingerboard (with white inlaid fret lines so you can easily find your way around). Available in 3-Color Sunburst.

Vintage Modified Precision Bass PJ. Squier gives you the best of both worlds–Precision and Jazz–with the Vintage Modified Precision Bass PJ. Its sleek Precision Bass form features the sonically powerful and tonally versatile combination of a punchy Fender-designed split single-coil Precision Bass middle pickup and a growling single-coil Jazz Bass bridge pickup with ceramic magnets. Available in Candy Apple Red, Lake Placid Blue, and 3-Color Sunburst.

Vintage Modified Bass VI. Squier brings you the welcome return of a long-vanished Fender classic in the deeply satisfying form of the Vintage Modified Bass VI six-string bass. The original model of 1961-1975 has provided distinctively voiced low end for everyone from the Beatles to the Black Keys, Cream to the Cure, and many others.

The Vintage Modified Bass VI delivers authentically vintage-style look and tone, with a few modern touches such as a comfortable “modern C” neck profile and 9.5” fingerboard radius (the originals were 7.25”), and three custom Jaguar single-coil pickups with notched “claw” shielding rings (reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup). Available in Black, Olympic White and 3-Color Sunburst.

Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass V Special. Squier’s most versatile Jaguar bass model is even more versatile now, with the extended range of the Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass V Special five-string model. Features include a sleek offset-waist body, slim fast-action maple neck with “modern C” profile, 9.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets, booming Fender®-designed split single-coil Precision Bass® V middle pickup and growling Fender-designed single-coil Jazz Bass V bridge pickup, active bass-boost circuit for extra low-end power, and more.
