30"-SCALE NECK WITH 9.5” FINGERBOARD RADIUS
This classic short scale makes it easier to comfortably reach the lower frets while maintaining Fender's punchy bass sound. The 9.5”-radius fingerboard offers enough arc to provide a natural fret-hand feel.
CUSTOM-SPEC MUSTANG BASS PICKUP
A major part of the sound, look and appeal of this bass is its custom-spec single-coil Mustang Bass pickup, voiced as closely to his vintage original as possible.
ROAD WORN FINISH
This instrument features a Road Worn finish, granting it a cool, aged look and feel-like it has more than a few playing miles on it.
Channel the early days of Fender thanks to a vintage-style bass bridge with single-groove saddles for a classic look with plenty of stability and sustain.
AGED PEARL PICKGUARD
The Aged Pearl pickguard is an authentic '60s-era appointment; it adds a retro-cool vibe to this bass.
HIPSHOT "LOLLIPOP" TUNERS
