Fender Custom Shop Bass
The distinctive vintage sound of these iconic instruments is undeniable, and so is the Custom Shop's skill at building modern reconstructions faithful to their golden age designs. The shop builds the Precision Bass in relic styles for the 1955, 1957, 1959, 1961 and 1964 model years. '64 was a particularly great year for the P-Bass, and you'll find the relic-treated alder body, C-shape maple neck and vintage split-coil pickup fitting homages on the 50th anniversary model. For the Jazz Bass, there's the 1964 relic as well as 1961 and 1966 models master-built by Fender's own Dale Wilson. With all of these vintage-accurate basses to choose from, you'll have no trouble bringing back the sound of your favorite year in Fender history. If you want to recreate the legendary tones of some of rock's greatest bassists, check out the signature P-Basses built for Adam Clayton of U2 and Pino Paladino, who's had the honor of playing with the likes of Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Sim & Garfunkle, John Mayer and The Who.
There are dozens upon dozens of electric basses out there, but there's only one Fender Custom Shop. When you own one of these vintage-styled bass guitars, you're not only playing a great-sounding instrument, you're tapping, slapping, picking and strumming a piece of music history.
