When your resume includes work with Jeff Beck, The Who, Eric Clapton, Simon & Garfunkel and John Mayer, you're obviously doing something right! And when your bass is as special as legendary session bassist Pino Palladino's, it's no wonder Fender’s Custom Shop chose to reproduce it. The Pino Palladino '62 Precision Bass features a light alder body, a C-shape straight grain maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, custom-wound pickup, tortoise shell pickguard and Thomastik-Infeld® strings - Pino's signature bass is made to his exacting specifications.

This bass is been given the Custom shop relic treatment. Every last scratch and nick on this guitar has been styled after Pino’s famous rig. The bridge cover screw holes are a reminder that the man himself did away with anything that got in the way of his fingers and each mark tells part of his story. Straight out of its case this bass looks like it’s been there, done that and has the marks to prove it.

The master luthiers at Fender's Custom Shop in California are well known for their superb craftsmanship and their use of outstanding materials. Every stringed instrument is finished with an attention to detail that guarantees perfection in terms of sound, looks and playing comfort. This includes the famous signature guitars and basses from legendary musicians, like the NOS versions and this Relic version.
