New supercharged basses deliver groundbreaking power and performance

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (July 14, 2011) — Fender is proud to introduce the all-new Blacktop series basses —the Blacktop Precision Bass® and Blacktop Jazz Bass® guitars.  Both deliver phenomenal power and performance in bold interpretations of  Fender’s time-honored titans, the Precision Bass and Jazz Bass.
These two awe-inspiring masterpieces are equipped with stylish looks and  thunderous sounds, making them two of the most distinctive iterations  of the instruments ever designed. Cutting-edge bassists can now go to  the Blacktop series basses to get the booming tones they have always  desired.
Sleek and supercharged, the Blacktop Precision Bass guitar  features two pummeling Blacktop Bass humbucking pickups that make it one  of the most powerful basses—if not the most powerful bass—Fender has  ever offered. Other distinctive touches are three Jazz Bass control  knobs (volume for each pickup and master tone) and a HiMass bridge.  Features include an alder body, maple neck with modern C shape and gloss  urethane finish, rosewood fretboard with 9.5” radius and 20 medium  jumbo frets, three-ply black-white-black pickguard, open-gear tuners and  chrome hardware.
The growling Blacktop Jazz Bass features dual Blacktop split-coil  Precision Bass pickups that pack a powerful one-two tonal punch. Like  its sibling, it too has an alder body, maple neck with modern C shape  and gloss urethane finish, rosewood fretboard with 9.5” radius and 20  medium jumbo frets, three-ply black-white-black pickguard, three Jazz  Bass control knobs, HiMass bridge, open-gear tuners and chrome hardware.
The Fender Blacktop series basses are available at authorized Fender  dealers. For more information, and to locate a dealer near you, go to  www.fender.com.
