There's no question that the 2018 Postmodern Bass is a Fender Custom Shop creation. Tailor-made for gigging bassists, this Custom Shop beauty is the ultimate Fender bass mash-up and delivers all that vintage P-Bass punch that helped make the original Fender bass the legend that it is today. If you're a gigging bass player looking for the quintessential workhorse with that unparalleled Fender sound, the Postmodern Bass is for you.

Tailor-Made for Gigging Bassists
The esteemed Fender Custom Shop team designed the 2018 Postmodern Bass with one ultimate goal in mind: to satisfy the discerning gigging bass player. They've brought together tons of player-oriented features, and paired that with all of the premium-quality craftsmanship, top-notch materials, and signature Fender tone that you've come to expect from a world-class Fender Custom Shop bass. The result is an amazing 4-string bass that any working bassist would love to make their go-to instrument.

The Ultimate Fender Bass Mash-Up
This Postmodern Bass fuses the finest features from the legendary Precision Bass and Jazz Bass models. The two-piece, select alder P-Bass body is joined with a fast-playing '60s-style "U"-shaped Jazz Bass maple neck that's capped with a smooth-playing round-laminated rosewood fingerboard featuring a contemporary 9.5" radius. Completely finished in nitro lacquer, this bass also sports the Fender Custom Shop Journeyman Relic finish treatment to provide that broken-in feel and vibe that players love. It comes loaded with premium performance features including a contoured neck heel for enhanced playing feel, a high-performance RSD Designed HiMass bridge, Fender Deluxe Long tuners, and a bone nut.

Vintage P-Bass Punch
Recreating all the sonic glory of the early '60s P-Bass, the 2018 Postmodern Bass comes equipped with a single Custom Shop hand-wound '62 P-Bass split single-coil pickup along with master volume and tone controls. Though this is a contemporary player's bass, this modern classic doesn't sacrifice any of that timeless P-Bass punch, thump, or growl.
