This week we check out a stunning bass by Italian company Black Beard Guitars called the Fahrenheit 4:51 II. Inspired by the Fender ’51 Precision bass, Black Beard calls this “the first electric bass… revisited.”

Its pine body is finished in a roasted semi-gloss and adorned with a an aluminum pickguard that etched with floral patterns. The maple neck has a 7.5″ radius and is fitted with 20 jumbo frets. Black Beard fitted it with a custom alnico II pickup and Kluson vintage tuners.
