Fender Custom Shop reveal Phil Lynott signature bass
Famed for his time as the bassist and vocalist of Thin Lizzy, Phil Lynott has long been been embedded in Rock & Roll folklore due to his larger than life stage presence and his signature Fender Precision Bass. His customised P bass features a mirrored pickguard, which became synonymous with his aesthetic.
Now painstakingly recreated by master builder John Cruz at the Fender Custom Shop, the guitar is also shipped with Lynott-inspired goodies such as a studded wristband, leather wristband and mirrored aviator sunglasses, along with a custom Anvil roadcase.
Made from a two-piece select ash body with a thin lacquer finish to enhance resonance, it also features a ’78 P Bass split-coil pickup. Featuring a rift-sawn maple neck with an oil finish, the round-lam rosewood fretboard comes in at 7.25″ with 20 jumbo frets. The body also sports a Badass II high-mass bridge for super sustain and a tone that cuts-through. Other features include vintage ’70s-style tuning keys, Dunlop strap locks and a bone nut.
