An extraordinary acoustic-electric bass from a legendary bassist.
When Fender and Victor Bailey paired up to create his signature 5-string acoustic-electric bass, the
great bassist graciously spent a great deal of time and effort on the collaboration. The result is a unique instrument: The
Victor Bailey signature 5-string bass guitar features a beautifully arched back, figured dao back and sides, a laminated spruce
top with a gorgeous dao veneer, an abalone rosette, tortoise-shell binding, a 34"-scale neck modeled on Bailey's signature
Fender Jazz Bass® guitar, satin gold Hipshot® licensed lightweight tuners, Fishman® electronics, and a deluxe
gig bag. The Fender Victor Bailey Signature 5-String is a truly stunning acoustic bass.
Victor Bailey is the first-call
session guy, solo artist, consummate sideman, acoustic bassist extraordinaire, and veteran of more than 1,000 recordings by
groups and artists including Weather Report, Michael Brecker, LL Cool J, and Mary J. Blige.
