Fender’s Custom Shop has unveiled their 2012 Limited Edition Models, including the Limited Edition Relic La Cabronita “Boracho” Bass. Bringing together elements of the Porazzo and its sister Boracha, the Boracho sports a reversed Jazzmaster body with added mass. Couple that with a custom T.V. Jones Thunderblade pickup and you get what Fender says is a “very unique and LOUD sounding bass.”
The Boracho’s body is made of select lightweight ash while the neck is a single piece of quartersawn maple with a custom “U” shape. The Tone knob controls a Greasebucket Tone Circuit, which rolls off highs without adding bass.
Finished in black and reliced, the bass comes with a limited edition case, strap, cable, custom shop pics, polishing cloth and a limited edition certificate of authenticity.
The Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Relic La Cabronita “Boracho” Bass has an MSRP of $6,000.
