Fender Tony Franklin Fretless Precision Bass, Signed By Tony Franklin, 3-Color Sunburst
Fender Tony Franklin Fretless P-Bass, Signed, 3-Color Sunburst
Replay Guitar Exchange is very proud to offer this new Fender Artist Series Tony Franklin Fretless Precision Bass, personally signed by Tony (see photos) just before his wall-shaking October 12, 2018 clinic here in our showroom. Tony's work with Roy Harper, The Firm, Blue Murder, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and beyond reveal a great thoughtfulness — and an unswerving dedication to musical appropriateness — behind his confident outpouring of creative, lyrical and often incendiary basslines.
Meanwhile, any bassist interested in a vintage-styled, passive fretless P/J bass is probably already familiar with this Tony Franklin signature model. Two Replay Guitar Exchange employees own them, this writer included — and you can scarcely go wrong with the winning combination of this superior-quality unlined ebony fretboard, Tony Franklin Precision Bass and Jazz Bass pickups (a DiMarzio hum-cancelling, split-wound, ceramic hex Jazz pickup), creatively streamlined Strat-style pickup selector, Hipshot Bass XTender (allowing accurate transition to drop tuning and back with the flick of a lever) and classic-style nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Tony originally made the modest decision to have his signature appear only on the neck plate of his Artist Series bass — but while he was here, we asked him to sign the back of the headstock, as well!
There need be no deliberation. Get down to Replay and try the tones of the Tony Franklin Fretless Precision Bass for yourself. Whether cruising with the rock-solid Precision pickup, exploring the fierce nasality of the Jazz pickup, or devouring the beautifully-matched combination of both pickups together, you'll appreciate the tonal versatility of this bass. By that time, the unmatched feel, playability and expressive capabilities of this instrument will likely captivate your imagination!
As always, feel free to contact our store for more details, or with any questions.
