Squier Paranormal Jazz Bass '54 - Black with Gold Anodized Pickguard
The Squier Paranormal Jazz Bass ’54 celebrates a classic Fender bass guitar that never existed. Confused? We should explain. In 1960, the Jazz Bass joined its older sibling, the Precision Bass, in the Fender lineup. The J Bass incorporated a sleek, modern design with an offset body, a thinner neck, and two pickups for tonal flexibility. The Paranormal Jazz Bass ’54 combines elements of both, retaining playability enhancements such as the comfortable offset waist, two alnico single-coil pickups with dual-concentric volume/tone stacks, and the fast “C”-profile neck with its narrower 1.5-inch nut. It also incorporates styling cues from the P Bass in its 1954 guise — namely, its unique pickguard and control plate. Add everything up and you have an eye-catching, easy-to-play, value-packed electric bass. The Squier Paranormal Series is a celebration of the greatest guitars that never were. Celebrate in style, with the Squier Paranormal Jazz Bass ’54. It’s all yours, for a song.
