The Fender Steve Harris Precision Bass guitar in Olympic White is a model that pays tribute to the founder of seminal heavy metal band Iron Maiden. Finished in the colours of Harris' beloved West Ham United F.C., and displaying the club's crest proudly on the body top, this model includes some outstanding appointments that make it a force to be reckoned with.
The body has been shaped to the cool and sophisticated Precision Bass profile, making it a functional yet elegant body to work with. The sleek curvature of the body enables it to rest snugly against the body as you perform, and creates the perfect resting position for your picking arm. The body has been crafted using two-piece maple, giving it a delightfully crisp and articulate tonality. The elaborate body finish has been treated with a gloss polyester finish to preserve it for as long as possible.
Fitted to the body is a responsive maple neck, shaped to the "U" shape profile, which guarantees a substantial playing feel in the hand. Married to the neck is a sumptuous maple fingerboard, which is shaped to a slim 7.25" radius to accommodate fast-playing styles - perfect for metal. The smooth gloss urethane neck finish gives it a resistance-free playing feel, allowing you to glide along with ease. The headstock is home to Fender '70s vintage-style stamped open-gear tuning machines that work tirelessly to maintain tuning integrity throughout each and every performance.
The Steve Harris model wouldn't be the same without a Seymour Duncan Steve Harris Signature P Bass SPB-4 pickup. Fitted in the middle position, and controllable via the master volume and master tone pots, this little dynamo is versatile enough to give you everything you need to set the stage on fire. From guttural low-end roar, to sonically brilliant highs, with a fat and thick mid section to boot, all you need to create stadium-filling tones is at your fingertips.
The body is equipped with a Fender high mass bridge, which ensures intonation is upheld with precision by creating a seamless bond between the strings and body. Harris' Signature Custom flat-wound Rotosound strings have been employed to ensure the set up and feel of this beauty is as close to how the man himself has it.
The Fender Steve Harris Precision Bass in Olympic White is an awesome bass that feels great, plays like a dream, sound awesome, and is built for life on the road. If you're a fan of Steve Harris or Iron Maiden (or even West Ham), then it goes without saying that this exceptional model should be at the top of your shopping list.
