While we tend to focus more on the 6 string instruments here at TME, we can't deny a great bass, especially a great Fender Masterbuilt one-of-a-kind bass - this is not one you're going to see everyday!
The Arctic White urethane finish on the two-piece alder body has a terrific worn-in look and feel. The satin finished, rift-sawn maple neck has a really comfortable '55 P Bass soft V profile (.925"-.95"), and the 9.5”-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard has medium jumbo frets, plus mother-of-pearl dot inlays for a classic look.
Other custom features include a custom body shape, reverse Tele headstock, Lace Alumatone pickups, Badass Bass III bridge, and HipShot tuning machines.
Plugged in, the Lace Alumatone pickups deliver ultra quiet tones with a wide frequency response. These "current driven" pickups are designed for passive installation, but due to their low resistance, they will not only work with existing preamp technology, but will enhance the sonic range of it, as well. A modern spin on bass pickup design and we loved the results.
Condition: Excellent save for light signs of wear, the worst of which is a finish ding just south of the tone control on the body.
Priced with a hardshell case.
