Squier by Fender Releases New Vintage Modified Series Telecaster Basses

The Vintage Modified Telecaster Bass sports a time-honored body and headstock shape that are well-balanced by a comfortable medium scale length (32”) that will appeal to bassists and guitarists alike.

Scottsdale, AZ (August 8, 2012) – Squier is excited to welcome two new Vintage Modified Series models–the Vintage Modified Telecaster Bass and Vintage Modified Telecaster Bass Special–which present an exciting new sonic and stylish twist on a long-familiar design.

The Vintage Modified Telecaster Bass sports a time-honored body and headstock shape that are well-balanced by a comfortable medium scale length (32”) that will appeal to bassists and guitarists alike. Remarkable tonal versatility comes from a single powerful Duncan Designed PB-102 SCPB single-coil pickup and three-way switching among special tone circuits, which 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).

Armed with distinctive features and punchy humbucker sound, the Vintage Modified Telecaster Bass Special features a comfortable medium scale length, large chrome-covered Fender-designed Wide Range humbucking neck pickup, Duncan Designed JB-102B single-coil Jazz Bass bridge pickup, and three-way blade switching (both pickups together and each pickup individually). Other features include black “barrel” switch tip, knurled chrome control knobs, vintage style bridge with four chrome saddles, vintage-style tuners and strap buttons, and single-ply pickguard.

Both models are available in Black and Vintage Blonde finishes.
