Solid Ash Wood Body

Mike Dirnt’s Signature Precision Bass features a solid ash wood body, delivering a classic Fender twang with sweet, airy tones. The lightweight ash provides the guitar with excellent resonance and sustain, offering firm lows, pleasing highs, and a scooped midrange. The bass is finished off with an original-era 1951 P-bass styling, features a road worn nitrocellulose lacquer finish in white blonde, deliver a vintage look bass which has seen years of year and tear.

Thick ''C'' Maple Neck & Rosewood Fingerboard

The bass’ ash body is paired with a thick ‘’C’’ maple neck, which offers incredible comfort and speed ideal for versatile playing styles. The thick ‘’C’’ shape is designed with more substantial shoulders than most other profiles, providing a natural feel ideal for chords and single notes. The rosewood fingerboard provides warm characteristics to help ‘’fur up’’ the maple’s harsh sound. The maple and rosewood combination provides the guitar with sizzling, sparkling highs, thick, firm lows, and a snappy midrange attack.

Custom Vintage '59 Split-Coil Pickup

The Signature Precision Bass is equipped with a custom vintage '59 split-coil pickup, designed to offer vintage tones with an extra heap of power and tonal destruction. This pickup offers players the same volcanic tones Mike uses for the band Green Day, delivering the truly grunge and growl sounds the band have become associated with.

HiMass Bridge

As well as offering a wide variety of superb tones, the bass guitar also features Fender's HiMass bridge which improves every note’s sustain and resonance. The bridge's design enhances the attack of the bass, creating a lively tone while offering either a string though or top loaded set-up.

Resonant Synthetic Bone Nut

Featuring a carefully fitted synthetic bone nut, the Signature Precision Bass delivers an increased resonance and bright tonality. When compared to traditional plastic and Tusq materials used to construct guitar nuts, synthetic bone improves the vibration transfer between the string and tuning machines without dampening the tone.

The History of the Precision Bass

Debuted in late 1951, the Precision Bass guitar was not only Fender's first bass guitar, it was the world's first bass guitar and a new kind of instrument. The Precision Bass (often shortened to P-Bass), has spent well over half a century at the very heart of music everywhere. With its two-horned solid body and fretted neck, the Precision Bass profoundly revolutionised music. Reigning ever since as a must-have instrument, this elegantly simple and enormously powerful instrument is the worldwide standard for bass tonality, performance, reliability and overall excellence.
