Fender Bass Manual

In series with the best-selling manuals on the Fender Stratocaster, Fender Telecaster and Gibson Les Paul electric guitars, this manual covers the Fender Bass guitars in detail, explaining how to maintain them, set them up to get the best sound, and repair them when things go wrong or damage occurs. Leo Fender's design concept based on his own Telecaster guitar was the first large-scale production bass guitar and changed the sound of popular music forever. Superbly illustrated and designed, this manual includes case studies of key models - everything from the Bass VI to a Fretless Jaco Pastorious Jazz model - but also gives appropriate attention to today's affordable Squier versions.
