Few rock bassists are as closely identified with fretless bass as Tony Franklin. Acclaimed for his innumerable session credits and work with Roy Harper, the Firm, Blue Murder, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and others, Franklin is a devoted and longtime Precision artist and one of the finest modern exponents of the fretless version of the instrument. The Tony Franklin Fretless Precision Bass delivers his style and powerful elastic tone in a model with classic looks and personalized Franklin features including two specially voiced pickups, a drop-D E-string tuner and more.

Available in your choice of 3-Color Sunburst or Black thin nitro lacquer finishes, the Tony Franklin Fretless Precision Bass sports a select alder body along with a bolt-on modern "C"-shaped maple neck featuring a smooth-playing unfinished unlined fretless ebony fingerboard. Voiced to Franklin's preferred specs and offering incredible sonic flexibility, the Tony Franklin Fretless Precision Bass comes fitted with a Tony Franklin Split Single-Coil Precision Bass middle pickup and a Tony Franklin Single-Coil Jazz Bass bridge pickup with hex screw pole pieces and a ceramic bar magnets. Comes complete with nickel/chrome hardware including an American Vintage bridge, a 4-bolt neck plate engraved with Tony's signature, and vintage-style tuners featuring a Hipshot Bass Xtender drop-D tuner on the E string for fast, accurate drop D tuning at the simple flip of a lever. Includes hardshell case, strap, and cable.
