Thanks to the tonal qualities of alder wood, the low end produced by the pickups is reigned in by the tonewood's midrange sound. Resulting in a tone that is well balanced. Sparing plenty of room for more accurate tone shaping through your amplifier or the responsive hardware controls.
Alder is a classic tonewood from Fender's storied history and they certainly know how to shape it into a great sounding, remarkable-looking bass guitar.
King of tone
Capture that classic '60s sound. Fender are committed to providing the best possible pickups. That's why they have included Vintage-Style '60s Single Coil pickups. You can craft your tone to perfection. Accurately shaping your sound to your liking. The focused single coils mean you get really clear tones - regardless of whether they rest more in the highs or the lows.
Play with ease
Riffs, walking bass lines, slap bass. No matter how you play. No matter what style. The maple neck allows you to pick, strum, and slap with the utmost versatility. From pop to metal, jazz to hip hop. It all sounds great thanks to the responsive pau ferro. The snappy and reactive fingerboard allows you to articulate notes beautifully. Helping you get the absolute best from your bass performances.
Only the best hardware
To top off the incredible design, Fender have spared nothing in creating a completely satisfying bass experience. From the head to the bridge - the Vintera feels exactly how a bass guitar should. Simply sublime. And the vintage-style control knobs allow you to dial in tones with accuracy.
There are controls for neck and bridge pickup volumes independently, as well as a master tone control. The Vintera bass is shipped with Fender's Bass 7520M strings, meaning you can play a range of styles as soon as you take it out of the included Deluxe Gig Bag.
