More about ARTISAN FLAME MAPLE POSTMODERN BASS

Rock-solid performance, seismic tone and astonishingly unique looks—the Fender Custom Shop’s Artisan Precision Bass FMT has everything a daring bassist needs to step out and rule the stage. The striking AAA flame maple top exudes elegance, making this a prestigious instrument that will enhance any collection.

There’s no mistaking the fat, punchy sound of a split-coil P Bass pickup, and the hand-wound ’62 P Bass pickup on this model is no exception. Designed for fleet-fingered playing, the 9.5”-16” round-lam, compound-radius AAA rosewood fingerboard flattens at the upper registers of the neck, providing the perfect platform for solos.

Other features include a roasted ash body, stable quartersawn maple neck with ’60 Jazz Bass® “U”-shaped profile, 20 6105 frets, RSD-designed HiMass™ bridge, deluxe die-cast tuning machines and bone nut. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
