Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt Vincent Van Trigt 1955 Precision Bass Heavy Relic 2-Tone Sunburst
We here at Truetone Music consider ourselves lucky. Now only do we get to be around amazing instruments all day, but every now & then our card gets picked to get something truly unique and amazing. This is one of those times.
Every year at the NAMM show, Fender puts on an exclusive event for Custom Shop Showcase dealers. Hundreds of instruments are displayed. All are amazing, but a few stand out. This Heavy Relic '55 Precision Bass by Masterbuilder Vincent Van Trigt was one of them this year. We immediately put our card on it - and 2 hours later, our card was picked. Now it's available for whomever is fortunate to get it!
The super light weight bass features a roasted ash body, quartersawn maple neck with a comfortable '55 Soft "V" shape, Josefina hand-wound pickups, and a vintage threaded barrel saddle bridge. It comes flavored with more vintage vibe than one can image. The Heavy Relic treatment was perfected by Vincent down to the finest detail (zoom in on the pictures to see). It plays like a dream and sounds incredible. We've had a lot of amazing basses here, but this one is amongst the best. It's definitely THE best since the last Vincent Van Trigt bass we got!
Originally from the Netherlands, Vincent moved to California in 2005 and began working for Fender immediately. After wearing a variety of hats in different departments, he started in the Custom Shop in 2012. A 2-year assistant role with Stephen Stern at the Gretsch Custom Shop was followed by a 5-year apprenticeship with John Cruz. Now the newest Fender Masterbuilder, he has grown an immediate following, especially amongst bass players. Vincent is a bass player himself, and the love he has for the instrument shows in each one he makes. He has quickly become one of the most in demand builders, with a waitlist over a year long.
This is a rare opportunity to get a very special bass, built by one of the best out there. Come to Club Fender at Truetone Music to check it out, or make it yours today right here.
