A New Take on a Classic Fender BassDid you know that the original Fender Precision Bass was bassed on the Telecaster guitar? But by 1968, the P Bass had so far departed from the Tele, that Fender decided to reissue the original Telecaster Bass. Interestingly enough, the Telecaster Bass took off, especially with the newer crowd of rockers - most notably Sting from the Police. Stylish, comfortable, and sporting a unique and wonderful sound of its own, the Tele Bass had been an on-again off-again hit in the bass world.
The Fender Modern Player Telecaster Bass take the original Tele Bass to a whole new level. The biggest departure from the original Tele Bass is the Modern Player Telecaster Bass's dual-humbucker configuration. A pair of Wide Range Precision Bass humbuckers give the Modern Player Telecaster Bass a massive range of tone, not only because they give you the uniquely expressive sound of passive coils, but because they're spaced about as far apart as possible. That lets you get the most out of the Modern Player Telecaster Bass's alder body and snappy maple neck and fingerboard.
