Fender Squier Gary Jarman The Cribs Bass 32” Medium Scale Rare! Clean! 06712
Description (see more pics below)
This is a super rare 2016 Gary Jarman Squier signature bass. They made very few of these. Features:
— Alder body/maple neck/rosewood board
— Rare 32” medium scale neck
— Thin vintage frets, hi-mass bridge
This is a one of a kind bass. Per Wikipedia, the design is credited to a cross of Precision, Mustang, and vintage Bass V Fender basses. Has P-bass style pickups and Volume/Tone controls. I have included all the specs at the bottom. The big deal about the neck is the 32-inch medium scale, which you rarely see. Very solid bass at 10 pounds, 8 ounces. Does not play like a Chinese made bass—really great. Frets are in clean condition. Couple scratches on back, otherwise totally clean. No case. Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing. Thanks for looking!

Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 15 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "Still Kickin - How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
Since 2002 the Jarman brothers Gary, Ryan and Ross fill the halls as "The Cribs" and bring the masses to the boil with their classic British-style indie rock. Bassist Gary has relied on Precision basses from Fender since the beginning of his band career, whose growling sound lays the foundation for every Cribs song. In close cooperation with the Fender subsidiary Squier, Gary developed a bass that merges the classic Fender sound with his personal design ideas.
The body of the Squier Gary Jarman Bass has a much slimmer line than the jazz and precision classics, which makes it snuggle comfortably to the body and relieves the player with its lower weight. The neck with its traditional C-profile offers a comfortable basis for supporting rock grooves, while the 32" short-scale scale guarantees a butter-soft playability.
The vintage-style split-coil pickup, positioned in the sweet spot of the string swingun, delivers the growling rock sound with its passive electronics, which has provided comfortable pressure in the stomach area since the 1950s. Thanks to the heavy high-mass bridge, the Squier Gary Jarman Bass also has a crisp response and singing sustain.

The Gary Jarman Signature Bass is an electric bass guitar manufactured by Fender/Squier in 2016, designed by Gary Jarman of The Cribs. It was released in August 2016 alongside the Squier Ryan Jarman Signature Guitar 'Mus-Uar'.
Talking to Total Guitar, Jarman explained that the bass was an amalgamation of his favorite Fender models. Prior to the release of his signature instrument, Jarman had usually been seen using Fender Mustang Basses and Precision Basses. He claims the concept of his signature instrument was influenced by both these basses, as well as an obscure Fender design from the 1960s, the Bass V. The bass features a split coil humbucking pickup, hi-mass bridge, and an unusual 32" scale length neck- a compromise between the short scale Mustang Bass (30"), and the Precision (34") “I use a P-Bass, but before that I always used Mustangs and I wanted to find a balance between the two [scale-lengths], so we made a medium-scale neck.” he explained. The bass also features a headstock shape which dates back to the original Precision Bass design from the early 1950s.
The bass is available in one colour, Ocean Turquoise Metallic.
Other professionals seen using this bass include Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic.
