Fender presents acoustic bass guitar

Electric guitar manufacturer Fender has unveiled a brand new acoustic bass guitar model.

The Kingman Bass SCE contains a number of innovations which distinguish it from previous instruments, including the Fender Jazz Bass neck and headstock.

This means that players can take advantage of a slimline body which aids fast and melodic performances.

Meanwhile, the guitar features an all-on-one side tuner configuration, as opposed to the two-on-each side layout which is commonly associated with acoustic basses.

This is the first time that Fender has included a slimline Jazz bass neck and this type of tuner configuration on a single acoustic bass guitar.

Commenting on the product, the firm described as "its most distinctive acoustic bass guitar model ever".

This comes after Fender hailed the success of its recent Road Worn competition, which was designed to showcase and support emerging bands in the US.

Justin Norvell, marketing director at the company, said this was a "great way" for Fender to connect with the people it designs electric and acoustic guitars for.
