A Tele Bass Loaded with Timeless Tone!
When you pick up a classy Squier Telecaster Bass, you're probably not going to expect the sheer range of fun, useful, and completely playable tones you'll get from it. That's because there's quite a lot going on under the hood of this humble-looking electric bass guitar than meets the eye. For one thing, the Telecaster Bass's lone single-coil pickup may look harmless enough, but it's really a Duncan Designed PB-102 SCPB, designed to deliver the classic passive bass pickup sound we all know and love. That sound gets a whole lot cooler still, when you add in the 3-way tone switch. There's a ton to like about the Squier Telecaster Bass.

Wait till you get your hands on your Squier Telecaster Bass - you're not going to believe the way this wonderful instrument feels. Much like the original Fender Telecaster guitar, the Tele Bass was designed to provide bass players like you a comfortable, perfectly balanced instrument you could play all night without feeling bogged down. That's not the only thing that makes the Telecaster Bass such a fun and easy instrument to play. Between its smooth and surprisingly subdued action, its consistently solid yet not too beefy neck carve, and its full-sized 1.7" nut, you'll soon find your fingers flying down the fretboard on autopilot.Duncan Designed PB-102 SCPB pickup delivers classic single-coil sound
There are many reasons why seasoned bass players keep coming back to the simplicity and straightforwardness of single-coil, and the Duncan Designed PB-102 SCPB pickup Squier loaded into their Telecaster Bass is a great example why. The clarity, dynamics, and range of tone you'll get out of this simple instrument is downright impressive, and that's before the amazing tone circuit (more on that down below). The bottom line is simply this: more than anything, the pickups on your instrument have the biggest influence on you tone. It's nice to see that Squier has their priorities straight.Instantly switch between three totally useful bass guitar tones
Now on to the good stuff. You might be wondering what Squier's deal is slapping what looks like a Tele pickup toggle on a bass that only has a single pickup. That's because this cleverly designed switch is actually the control for the Telecaster Bass's unique three-way tone circuit. In the middle position, you've got the full sound of your pickup, plus the standard tone control at your disposal. That's where you'll get all of your more modern bass tones. Flip that switch into position 1, and you'll instantly enter Baritone mode, which gives you the classic tic-tac-bass sound found all throughout country and Americana styles. Now, take that lever to the other extreme and you've entered "Double Bass" mode. As the name suggests, this mode gives you the smooth and creamy bass sound that's a mainstay of R&B, funk, and jazz. Talk about a huge range of tone! Isn't it time you picked up a Squier Telecaster Bass from Sweetwater?Squier Telecaster Bass 4-string Solidbody Electric Bass Guitar Features:
