Squier Introduces Chris Aiken Signature Precision Bass

Squier Chris Aiken Signature Precision Bass

Squier has introduced the Chris Aiken Signature Precision Bass, which the Strung Out bassist helped design.

“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.”

Finished in white, the bass has a mirrored acrylic pickguard and white binding and pearloid block inlays in the 20-fret maple fingerboard. The pickup is a Duncan Designed PB-105 which is controlled with a single volume knob. Aiken’s signature and Strung Out’s “Astrolux” logo are on the headstock.

The Squier Chris Aiken Signature Precision Bass will be available with an MSRP of $499.99. For more info, check out the Squier website.
