Green Day bassman gets his own signature models
Here is the official press release from Fender:
Fender press release
Fender, Squier and hard-hitting Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt join forces once again for the release of the Fender Mike Dirnt Road Worn® Precision Bass® and Squier by Fender Mike Dirnt Precision Bass.
With original-era 1951 Precision styling, the Fender Mike Dirnt Road Worn Precision Bass offers an ash body in 3-Color Sunburst or White Blonde lacquer finish worn to perfection to simulate years of hard-played onstage glory.
Other distinctive features include a comfortable forearm contour, a volcanic custom vintage-style ’59 split single-coil pickup, side-mounted output jack and custom Mike Dirnt neck plate. The maple neck has a thick “C”-shaped profile and a classic ’51-style Telecaster® headstock shape, with a 9.5”-radius maple or rosewood fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets and black (maple board) or aged white (rosewood board) dot position inlays.
The upgraded Squier Mike Dirnt Precision Bass is a way-cool take on an early ’50s Precision Bass, designed to the oft-airborne Green Day bassist’s own specifications, with a huge, gnarly punk-pop sound that effortlessly punches right through the thickest guitar attack.
Available in Black and Arctic White finishes, this new version sports subtle aesthetic changes with a newly-positioned neck plate star graphic, 4-ply Aged White Pearloid pickguard (Black model), and 3-Ply Tortoiseshell pickguard (Arctic White model).
