Fender has incorporated some low end into their Blacktop series with the introduction of the Blacktop Precision and Blacktop Jazz Bass guitars. The line of basses are made for a thick, heavy sound and are what Fender describes as “two of the most distinctive iterations of the instruments.”
Built on an alder body, the Blacktop Precision has two humbucking pickups that are built for power. The controls are three Jazz bass knobs, set up with the Volume-Volume-Master Tone configuration. Other features include a maple neck, a rosewood fretboard, a HiMass bridge, open-gear tuners and chrome hardware.
The Blacktop Jazz Bass takes a new approach to the style with two Precision Bass pickups positioned in the standard J-bass setup. It shares most features with it’s sibling, including an alder body, rosewood fretboard, three Jazz bass control knobs, and chrome hardware.
The Fender Blacktop Precision and Jazz Basses are shipping later this month and have an MSRP of $699.
