What Haworth Guitars say:
The Fender Nate Mendel Precision Bass Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard is an awesome Signature P-Bass model by Fender.
At Haworth Guitars we love the Fender Nate Mendel Precision Bass's comfortable Slim C-shaped maple neck, Fender HiMass bridge and powerful Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound split-single-coil P-Bass pickup.
What Fender has to say:
Throughout a long career that started with hardcore punk and flourished first with Sunny Day Real Estate and then the Foo Fighters, there has really only been one main instrument for melodic yet hard-hitting bassist Nate Mendel—his 1971 Precision Bass®. Fender now brings you the Nate Mendel P Bass, modeled after his beloved, battle-hardened instrument and sharing its subtly distinctive features, including the special body contours, extra-slim neck, lightly worn finish, powerful Seymour Duncan® pickup and more.
