OVERVIEW

A loving tribute to the Thin Lizzy bassist.

Few images in ‘70s rock are as stirring as Phil Lynott, bassist/vocalist of Thin Lizzy, wearing his aviator shades and hoisting his P Bass above the crowd. As individual as he was, this customized bass sported a Mirrored pickguard that became his signature aesthetic touch.

Master Builder John Cruz has painstakingly recreated this bass in precise detail, as only a Custom Shop Master Builder can. Not only is this limited-edition bass a true-to-the-era replica, Fender also threw some extra Lynott-inspired goodies into the custom Anvil road case for you.

To craft this instrument, Cruz began with a two-piece select ash body, added a lacquer finish to let the body breathe with more tonal resonance—and, of course, the custom pickguard and a hand-wound ’78 P Bass split-coil pickup.

The stable, rift-sawn maple neck has a lacquered headstock face. Along with an oil finish, giving it a fast feel that perfectly matched Lynott’s fleet-fingered style. The 9.5”-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard hosts 20 jumbo frets, while the body sports a Badass II high-mass bridge for extra sustain and punchy tone.

Other features include Dunlop strap locks, vintage- ‘70s-style tuning machines, bone nut and round string tree. Includes custom Anvil case, custom made leather strap and studded wristband, mirrored aviator sunglasses and Certificate of Authenticity.
