Fender Steve Harris West Ham Bass £799
The Steve Harris Precision Bass has been designed in collaboration with Fender and one of the most influential metal bassists alive. Built for heavy rock, this bass guitar comes in Steve Harris’ famously regal gloss White finish with special pinstriping, mirrored pickguard and West Ham United F.C. crest. Boardering on the thin line between love and hate, this Precision Bass combines music and football, two things that have a special place in Harris’ heart. Other ironclad features include a single powerful Seymour Duncan Steve Harris signature model pickup, Fender High Mass bridge, Rotosound Steve Harris Signature flat-wound strings and Harris’s signature on the back of the headstock.
Sleek Body Shape
The Fender Steve Harris Precision Bass Guitar features a functional yet elegant body to work with. The sleek body has been shaped to the cool and sophisticated Precision Bass profile, with curvature that enables you to rest it comfortably against your body as you perform, creating the perfect resting position for your picking arm. The crisp and articulate tonality of this Precision Bass comes from the two-piece Maple, which has been finished with the elaborate colours of Harris’ beloved West Ham United F.C. and a gloss polyester to ensure a long life on the road.
Smooth Playing Neck
The responsive Maple neck offers a “U” shaped profile for substantial playing feel in the hand. The slim 7.25 Maple fingerboard has 20 medium-jumbo frets and black dot inlays. The Maple neck and fingerboard paired together will accommodate fast playing styles, making this signature bass perfect for metal. The smooth gloss urethane neck finish gives it a resistance-free playing feel, allowing you to glide along with ease. You can be sure that your bass will maintain tuning integrity throughout each and every performance with the Fender ’70s vintage-style stamped open-gear tuning machines.
Seymour Duncan Pickups
The on-board Seymour Duncan Steve Harris SPB-4 pickup, fitted in the middle position, is controllable via the master volume and master tone pots to give you everything you need for incredible versatility on stage. Create anything from guttural low-end roar, to sonically bright highs, with a fat and thick mid section to boot with this fantastic pickup that gives you stadium-filling tones at your fingertips.
Fender High Mass Bridge
The Fender high mass bridge creates a seamless bond between the strings and body, this ensures intonation is upheld with precision so you won’t go out of tune. To achieve the set up and feel of how Steve Harris has his own bass, this signature model has been equipped with Custom flat-wound Rotosound strings.
