Fender has released a flashy limited-edition Precision Bass created in celebration of Artform, a short film the brand recently released starring hip hop producers Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Adrian Younge (aka The Midnight Hour).
The alder-bodied bass is coated in a handsome Purple Sparkle Gloss finish, complete with a matching purple shell pickguard. It sports a “1963 C” maple neck and a rosewood fingerboard.
Tone-wise, the bass is loaded with Pure Vintage ’63 Split-coil Precision Bass pickups, wired to a master volume and tone knob.
Elsewhere, the bass boasts vintage appointments such as a heel-adjust truss rod and a threaded steel saddle bridge. The Pure Vintage reverse open-gear tuning machines, pickup cover, and neck plate – engraved with the duo’s band name – are gold-plated.
Available exclusively at Linear Labs Music at $2,395. More information at linearlabsmusic.com.
