Product Description

Mike Dirnt and his bandmates in Green Day almost single-handedly brought pop and punk to the masses in the '90s. The Mike Dirnt Precision Bass is as unique and cool as Green Day's music and was designed to Mike's own unique specifications. Mike's bass was modeled after the Fender '51 P Bass, and features an ash slab body with a '55 arm contour and pickguard. Other features include a thick, maple 'C'-shape neck modeled after Mike's original '69 P Bass, Custom Shop '59 P Bass pickup, and a BadAss II bridge with chrome hardware.

Features:

- '51 Headstock and Neck Butt Shapes
- '51 Slab Style Body Top with Sharp Radius
- '55 Style Front Arm Contour
- '55 Style Pickguard Shape
- White Dot position Inlays
- Side Mounted Jack Plate
- Knurled Chrome Control Knobs

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (44 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A new favorite!"
Sound: The bass sounds like a P-Bass of course, but much warmer than I expected. It has a very well rounded and warm tone with a nice bottom end and spanky highs. I expected it to be more mid-heavy, honky, but happily it was not. The vintage pickups sound great with absolutely no need for replacement...ever. Feature: It's a P-Bass, simplicity IS it's feature. Time tested, industry standard Precision Bass, 1 volume, 1 tone, great, heavy duty stamped tuners, and a Bad Ass II bridge. Not sure what else you could ask for in a work horse bass. Everything is quality on this bass FAR exceeding it's price point. Ease of Use: Pick it up, sling a strap on it, open up the pots and play it...loudly. Can't get any easier than that. It's most difficult use feature is taking it off and putting it down. Quality: The construction quality and materials are worthy of a much higher price. I know that isn't something popular to say LOL, but rest assured, this bass is well worth every penny and will last a lifetime. The fretwork, the finish, the hardware and electronics are all top shelf of MIA quality. I have over a dozen Fender basses and this easily rivals any of my MIAs, CIJs, and exceeds a couple of my MIMs. The wood grain on the body and neck are beautiful. Not a satin neck finish fan, but it is well done, just a personal thing. Value: Far and away one of the best values in a P-Bass out there. With the pickups and tuners and bridge at the price, it's great, but the construction quality and great wood put it over the top! And if that isn't enough zZounds Pay as you Play is the clincher. Manufacturer Support: Never needed it...they are Fender basses...sheesh. The Wow Factor: A beautiful, simple yet elegant design. The vintage influences and features make it an instant classic. I have a Cabronita P-Bass and a '51 CV P-Bass, and have really been digging the slab bodies/thick "C" profile necks as of late, just dead sexxxy basses. Not a fan of the 1-ply guard, but that is easily fixed and the only thing getting touched on this bass! Some minor setup on my part, although delivered at factory spec, I am just more finicky and OCD that I ought be, and it plays SO smooth and low, buzz free, end to end. High WOW factor! Overall: A very well constructed "classic" with tons of vintage vibe and modern appointments. I simply love this bass! It plays wonderfully, the fit and finish are top shelf, the wood is superb, and hardware is heavy duty. Overall an extremely roadworthy bass that is a fantastic alternative to a "traditional" (i.e. "modern") Precision Bass.
Style of Music: Alternative, punk, powerpop, and secretly...blues...shhhhhhh.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Serious Bass"
Sound: This bass "cooks!!" I love the 51 pickup which provides excellent tone to rock and r&b music selection. Quality instrument cables are a must to aviod some buzz from the pickup. I enjoy my Ibanez active bass however, the construction and sound of this bass seperates from the others. Playing through my 2x10 SWR with a 115 ampeg extension lays out a strong clear sound. Make sure you get the 3.5 guitar strap for the extra weight. Ease of Use: You will need to use the eq on your amp to change tones. This is expected with a passive bass. Quality: The construction and finish is excellent. It came out-of-the-box ready to play. No adjustments were needed. Value: I wih it was cheaper...but ya "get what you pay for." Manufacturer Support: No need to contact Fender to this point. The Wow Factor: The Mike Dirnt gets everyone's attention. My muscian friends appreciate the look and sound. Others just like the look. I got the Sunburst. Overall: I extremely satisfied! I have a vintage Univox fretless, active Ibanez and the Dirnt. Adding the Dirnt to my collection has me set. I would get another if anything happens to this one.
Style of Music: Rock, R&B
