Tony Franklin Fretless Precision Bass®
PRODUCT#: 0190085806
$3,599RRP
The names of few rock bassists have become more synonymous with fretless bass than that of session great Tony Franklin. Like the man who designed it, the Tony Franklin Fretless Precision Bass® guitar takes a classic instrument to a new level, with an alder body and modern C-shaped maple neck with an unfinished and unfretted ebony fingerboard with side dot position markers. Other features include vintage tuners, Hipshot® Bass Xtender drop-D tuner on the E string, and three-way pickguard switch that controls an American Series Precision Bass neck pickup and a Tony Franklin signature Jazz Bass® bridge pickup with hex-screw lugs and ceramic bar magnets.
