New for 2023, the Fender Custom Shop introduces the Limited ’59 Precision Bass Special Relic. With a Precision Bass body and a thin, comfortable Jazz Bass® neck—a combination Fender offered in the early 1970s—it’s a truly functional hybrid of the best of both bass worlds. Here, the two-piece body is fashioned from select ash, while the quartersawn maple neck has a ’60s-style “U” profile.That great combo applies under the hood too, with a punchy Custom Shop hand-wound ’57 Precision Bass middle pickup, a snarling hand-wound Vintage Jazz Bass bridge pickup, and independent volume controls for blending to perfect personal preference. This bass wears beautifully battered Natural Blonde, Chocolate Three-Color Sunburst, and Aged Black Relic lacquer finishes that impart an authentically worn-in look in which spidery finish checking and each ding, dent and scar from bridge to headstock tell a story of years of action in clubs and bars.Other premium features include a flat-lam maple fingerboard with a 7.25” radius, 20 medium jumbo (6105) frets and a bone nut; volume-volume-tone wiring; gold anodized aluminum pickguard; Custom Shop HiMass RSD (Research Special Design) bridge for massive sound and sustain, vintage-style tuners, disc string tree, deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
