Fender Roger Waters Precision Bass Guitar

Just released last week and now available in stores is Fender's new Roger Waters Precision Bass Guitar. A cynical person might suggest that it's named after the legendary Pink Floyd bass player purely for marketing purposes, but Fender say it's because it's modeled on the actual bass Roger Waters played.

Either way, it does have a pretty finish.

This is what Fender have to say about their new dark side of the bass…

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 include 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 deluxe gig bag.
