Squier Announce New Chris Aiken P-Bass

Strung Out bassist receives his own signature

This week Squier have introduced the Chris Aiken Precision Bass guitar.

'The signature model packs the Strung Out bassist and songwriter’s hard-hitting look, sound and style into a formidable new take on the venerable Fender P Bass.' say Squier.

 
Features include Strung Out’s hallmark “Astrolux” logo on the headstock and Aiken’s signature on the back.

There's a vogueish mirrored acrylic pickguard that's fitted to the understated Olympic White body, 20-fret maple neck and fingerboard with white binding and white pearloid block inlays.

Power comes from a Seymour Duncan Designed PB-105 Precision Bass pickup and includes a knurled chrome volume knob and “HiMass” bridge with brass saddles. 

 
“I decided to make something that’s really cool, that I like to play,” said Aiken. “But, also something I want to give to the fans of Strung Out and any average bass player that wants to buy a bass – something that’s simple, practical and plays awesome.”
