Fender Bass Guitars
Fender is a well-known world-class guitar and musical instrument manufacturer. Founded in 1946, Fender is responsible for such brands as Squier, Gretsch, EVH, Jackson and Charvel. Though its lines of electric guitars are well-known, Fender is also a notable name where bass guitars are concerned. Fender manufactured the first electronic bass in 1951, allowing musicians to steer away from the large upright bass that had been commonplace before its development.Fender Bass Guitar Body Types
Fender bass guitars are available in two major body types. Fender solid-body bass guitars are by far the most common bass guitar type, and the solid body produces the sharper, less rounded sound iconic to rock and heavy metal. However, it is also possible to find Fender bass guitars in semi-hollow and hollow varieties, which round and even the sound the guitar produces, having more in common with the acoustic guitar.Fender Bass Guitar Options
Fender bass guitars come with many options including colour, neck construction types and body styles. Most Fender bass guitars come in wood grain options, but can be found in blue, black, white, red, yellow, orange, green and a variety of mixed or metallic shades. There are double bases with two necks, bass guitars utilising the traditional bolt construction to attach the neck to the body and through-neck construction bass options with a layered bass neck that slots through the solid body of the guitar. Fender bass guitars are also produced in many body styles, organised into many families including jazz, dimension, jaguar, mustang and squier collections.Fender Bass Guitar Accessories
Fender bass guitars function best with a multitude of accessories. Straps make playing the guitar easier and more comfortable, while carrying cases protect the guitar when you're on-the-go. Fender bass guitar cables connect the bass to audio equipment for recording or amplifying, and amps and speakers help project sound for an audience.Fender Bass Guitar String Arrangements
Fender bass guitars also come with many different string arrangements including four, five and six-string basses. They can also be found fretless or with custom frets and custom-designed fret markers.
