Fender Intros Roger Waters Precision Bass

 

Fender introduces the Roger Waters Precision Bass, named for the bassist/singer/songwriter whose grooves and riffs are hallmarks of the legendary Pink Floyd sound and an acclaimed solo career.

The instrument is as tastefully tailored as Waters’ own simple-yet-sophisticated bass work, with distinctive features including a black-on-black color scheme (black body and single-ply pickguard), Seymour Duncan Basslines SPB-3 Quarter-Pound split-coil Precision Bass pickup, knurled black control knobs (master volume, master tone), brass nut, black bridge and strap buttons, vintage ’70s-style "Fender"-stamped open-gear chrome tuners, and gasketed "F"-stamped neck plate.

Other features are a 9.5"-radius maple neck with vintage-style truss rod and slotted truss rod nut, maple fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets, a gloss urethane finish (body and neck), and gig bag.
