Not just another pretty bass, the inspiring and surprisingly versatile FA-450CE makes it easy to take killer Fender bass tone and feel anywhere you go. For amplified performances. the onboard Fishman® preamp system offers crystal-clear sound along with volume, bass and treble controls to precisely shape your tone. The luxurious flame maple top enhances articulation, lending a crisp attack to the mahogany back and sides’ rich, warm voice. The “Modern C”-shaped neck bears a 9.5”-radius fingerboard which works well for almost any playing style. Cream binding, a modern 2x2 headstock, classic Viking bridge and ‘keystone’ rosette complete the appointments, adding an elegant touch to the instrument’s visual appeal.
