Product Description

The names of few rock bassists have become more synonymous with fretless bass than that of session great Tony Franklin. Like the man who designed it, the Fender Tony Franklin Fretless Precision Bass guitar takes a classic instrument to a new level, with an alder body and modern C-shaped maple neck with an unfinished and unfretted ebony fingerboard with side dot position markers. Other features include vintage tuners, Hipshot Bass Xtender drop-D tuner on the E string, and three-way pickguard switch that controls an Fender American Series Precision Bass neck pickup and a Tony Franklin signature Jazz Bass bridge pickup with hex-screw lugs and ceramic bar magnets.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A must have to complete your bass arsenal!!!"
Overall: This bass is solid......smooth playing and a clear growling tone that can be dialed back if needed. The 3-way PUP switch I truly love! I have always had either both PUPs on or one or the other. I never did any blending so the 3 way switch perfect for my style. The neck on this is absolutely one of the most comfortable necks you can put your hands on. The hip shot is pretty awesome also, more novelty for me the useful but it is there just in case. The PUP configuration is just what I've longed for and this bass definately delivered. No battery to be concerned about is also nice, but I still need my 5-string for certain performances so this Fretless Monster has completed my stage arsenal.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
