2018 Postmodern BASS
PRODUCT#: 9235000577
$5,799RRP

We asked ourselves, “What would be our ultimate gigging bass?” and then promptly set about creating the working bassist’s best friend— the Postmodern Bass. We mated a two-piece, select alder P Bass® body with a speedy tinted, quartersawn maple J Bass® neck hosting a 9.5”-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard and contoured neck heel for the ultimate playability. The Custom Shop hand-wound ’62 P Bass® pickup brings the thunder, thumping with punchy, authentic Fender® bass tone. This bass was designed for nothing but playing; just high-quality components and pure Fender® Custom Shop craftsmanship and innovation.

Other features include Closet Classic hardware, a Journeyman Relic® lacquer finish, medium jumbo frets, hand-wound Texas Special bridge pickup, 3-way switching, 4-ply Tortoiseshell pickguard, RSD bass bridge, Fender deluxe bass tuning machines, bone nut, round string guide and A-string retainer. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
