There probably isn't a rock band still touring that deserve the title of modern day legends quite so much as the Foo Fighters. So in their honor (pardon the pun, and the American spelling!) Fender have produced some signature instruments including this the Nate Mendel P Bass. Based on a 1971 Precision Bass the Nate Mendel P Bass features special body contours and extra slim neck for fast and raw playing and a Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound split single-coil. Add to the mix a Badass II bridge for incredible sustain and special edition neckplate so that everyone can see just how signature your new bass is!
Here's what Fender say about the Nate Mendel P-Bass:
Throughout a long career that started with hardcore punk and flourished first with Sunny Day Real Estate and then the Foo Fighters, there has really only been one main instrument for melodic yet hard-hitting bassist Nate Mendel--his 1971 Precision. Fender now brings you the Nate Mendel P Bass, modelled after his beloved, battle-hardened instrument.
The Nate Mendel P Bass shares the same subtly idiosyncratic and distinctive features as the original, with special body contours, extra-slim neck and nut width, a lightly worn Candy Apple Red finish with a black pickguard, a powerful Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound split single-coil pickup, Badass II bridge for rock-solid sustain and stability, and Mendels signature on the headstock. It also comes with a spare neck plate engraved with a special hybrid Foo Fighters/Fender logo and a deluxe gig bag. Tour bus and platinum records not included.
