This is our favourite Fender CUSTOM SHOP model. We try to have this model in stock at all times. Based on Palladino's own '62 Precison Bass, it comes with the Relic treatment that reproduces the state of a bass that has been used for 40 years. But the true surprise comes when you actually try it. The stock Thomastik flatwounds and specially wound pickup produce a warm and deep sound that has to be heard to be believed. The worn out finish at the back of the neck also has an effect on your playing. Warning: if you try this bass you'll be hooked. Even if you were looking for a modern sounding bass, there's something about this instrument that makes you realize this is what a true bass should sound like.
