Get a "firm" grip on greatness with the new Tony Franklin Fretless Precision Bass guitar. Franklin, a session great who has played with the Firm, Whitesnake, David Gilmour and many others, designed his namesake bass, which takes fretless bass to a new level.

It has an alder body (Black or Three-color Sunburst finish) and a modern C-shaped maple neck with an unfinished, unfretted ebony fingerboard with side dot position markers. That famous growl comes from an American Series Precision Bass neck pickup and a Tony Franklin signature Jazz Bass bridge pickup with hex screw lugs and bar ceramic magnets. Other features include vintage tuning machines with Hipshot® Bass Xtender Drop D tuning key on the "E" string, and three-way switching.
