NAMM 2015: Fender Geddy Lee and Steve Harris Signature Basses Revealed
Introducing two new bass guitars in the Fender Artist Series, the Steve Harris Precision Bass and Geddy Lee Jazz Bass.

The Steve Harris Precision Bass is the result of a collaboration between Fender and one of the most influential metal bassists alive. This iconic instrument comes in Steve Harris’ famously regal gloss White finish, adorned by the West Ham United F.C. crest and features special pinstriping with mirrored pickguard.

Other ironclad features include a single powerful Seymour Duncan Steve Harris signature model pickup, Fender High Mass bridge, Rotosound Steve Harris Signature flat-wound strings and Harris’s signature on the back of the headstock.

Another new release from Fender is the US Geddy Lee Jazz Bass. The Rush bassist pays homage to three of his favourite basses with this brand new 2015 artist series model.

The neck has a thicker custom profile, topped by a Maple fingerboard with elegant white binding and white pearloid block inlays. Its two vintage style single-coil Jazz Bass pickups are specially wound and voiced to sound like those on Lee’s prized 1972 original, and a Geddy Lee signature High-Mass bridge provides rock-solid intonation, leaving you to enjoy enormous tone that crackles with life and bristles with energy.
