Fender Custom Shop Journeyman Relic Postermodern Bass


The 2016 Postmodern Bass is a thoroughly contemporary combination of Fender’s two most time-honored basses. Its lightweight alder Precision Bass® body features a lacquer finish and comfortably contoured heel, paired with a tinted quartersawn maple Jazz Bass® neck with a 1960s “U” profile and Heavy Relic back finish. The compound-radius (9.5”-16”) round-laminated dark rosewood fingerboard has a bone nut and 20 medium jumbo frets.

Other premium features include a hand-wound 1962 Precision Bass pickup, three-ply parchment pickguard, A-string Stealth string retainer, RSD bass bridge, and deluxe tuners. Available in NOS and “Journeyman” Relic® lacquer body finishes, the latter of which imparts the appearance of years of aging and light use without heavy wear and tear. Includes black hard-shell case and Custom Shop certificate of authenticity.
