Description

Grammy-award-winning metal band Mastodon is well-known for their brutal vocals and gruesome drop-tuned guitars, but they'd be nothing without Troy Sanders' earth-shattering basslines. Whether he's playing a supportive role or slinging gnarly, grinding riffs that take center stage, Sanders has proven to be a versatile player who can adapt to any situation. Fender honors the Mastodon bassist's musicianship with the all-new Troy Sanders Precision Bass, and it's perfect for high-gain players seeking an absolute behemoth of an instrument.

This axe starts with an alder body equipped with a HiMass vintage bridge, giving it a bright, punchy sound with pronounced upper mids and truckloads of sustain. Its Custom '70s Precision Bass neck has a comfortable "C" shape, and its 9.5" radius slab rosewood fingerboard and 20 medium jumbo frets play exceptionally well. It doesn't just play great, though - from its pearloid block inlays to its Silverburst finish and distinctive chromed control plate, this bass has a stunning appearance that commands attention.

Fender equipped this bass with a pair of Tim Shaw-designed PJ pickups that deliver a crushing tone that's great for rock and metal. It also features a custom-voiced 18V preamp that allows players to layer in colossal lows and cutting highs. If you're more traditional, though, don't worry - just flip the active/passive toggle switch, and this bass will churn out classic, growling P Bass tones that'll take you straight to rock 'n' roll heaven.

Complete with a matching headstock, a custom "Emperor of Sand" icon at the 12th fret, and the Mastodon "Remission" logo on the neck plate, the Troy Sanders Precision Bass is perfect for Mastodon fans and high-gain musicians alike.
