Holy grail of precision bass, made by Fender and named after the great Pino Palladino.

This is the perfect example of how a p bass should sounded like.

  • Alder body
  • Maple neck with rosewood fingerboard
  • reverse tuner
  • 34" scale length
  • 19mm string spacing
  • light relic
  • nitro finish
  • weight about 8lbs
  • stock with TI flat wound string

This is the replica of Pino's 62 p bass, and man ..   the customshop has done a phenomenal job putting this bass together, it sounds right and plays amazing.  and It's on-par with many vintage 60's pbass that I get to tried throughout the years.  

I don't often get impressed by Fender Customshop, it might be the personal opinion/taste thing, or they're made correctly to the historical specs that doesn't interested me.   But man ...  I've get to played 4 different Pino p in my life, and they are all amazing .

Strung with the light tension Thomastik Infeld Nickel flat wound string that cost $75usd a set for 4 string, but I'd have to say it's very delicate made, and the strings simply catch alot more details and way more responsive compare to the steele Labella flats .   It takes a little time to get used to but they are simply great.  And they are very different to their classic LaBella rivals so each of them deserves different uses.  And the conclusion is that you need both.   lol
