Bring the noise with Fender's sleek monster.
Now you can "bring the noise" with Fender's new Frank Bello Bass, a sleek, all-black tone monster that'll easily take whatever you dish out and then laugh about it. Nobody punishes an instrument like Bronx-bred bass monster Frank Bello, a fact to which thousands of rabid Anthrax and Helmet fans can readily attest.
A true hybrid, the Frank Bello Signature P Bass has a slab-cut alder Jazz Bass body and a modern C-shaped maple Precision Bass neck with matching black headstock. The thunder comes from a Seymour Duncan Basslines SPB-3 Quarter Pound split-coil Precision Bass pickup and a Samarium Cobalt Noiseless Jazz Bass pickup; the only onboard control is for volume!
Other features include Fender/Schaller Deluxe Lite-Bass straight-shaft tuning machines, a Badass III bridge, "Fender Bass" headstock decal, Bello caricature on the back of the headstock and his signature on the neck plate.

A nice collector's piece that is a limited time make. It however only has 3 nice features...it is made well with a heavy slab body, nice heavy weight pickups, and a nice badass 3 bridge. However this bass is not very versatile and is too much money for what you get out of it. It should be a couple hundred less. It is good for metal and punk but with only two volume knobs and no tone controls (not versatile). Also for an artist made bass, it shouldldn't be made in Mexico. I used to own and liked it for the two styles I stated but I got a Steve Harris p bass which is a lot lighter has a deep end with a brighter top and is more versatile.
I have never been a big fan of "artist models." And I was never really the biggest fan of Fender either. But this bass really changed my mind. I always really loved Anthrax, old and new, and I love Frank's style. So I checked this bass out. It is exactly the kind of bass I needed. I searched for that kind of tone and playability for years, and I found it in this bass. It can growl, it can sing, it's easy to play, and I love the heavy body. You know you are holding something! I recommend this bass for anyone who is looking for a versatile instrument and has a medium budget.
