2011 Fender Custom Shop La Cabronita

  • Sale
  • Regular price £2,100.00


2011 Fender La Cabronita "Porrazo" Precision Bass relic, serial number CZ518226. It's fully set up with a fresh set of strings and weighs in at 8lbs 2.5lbs. Supplied in a used Fender / G&G tweed case. Case candy and certificate of authenticity included.

This is a very unique and rare instrument, from a one-time limited run of only 30 basses! The La Cabronita combines the classic and familiar body contours of a '50s Precision Bass with tuxedo cosmetics and a TV Jones ThunderTron pickup. Constructed with a hand-selected premium lightweight ash body, this is a very resonant instrument with the sustain of a string thru body and the midrange richness that only comes from ash. The ThunderTron has a very round and deep tone. It also has a unique piano-like clarity, with low end that is detailed and dynamic, without being too boomy. The tone is partially due to Fender's Greasebucket tone control circuit, which lets you shape your sound to perfection. The Greasebucket circuit's special trick is that it rolls of high frequencies while avoiding the resonant peak found in other tone circuits.

The quartersawn maple neck has what Fender's factory description states is a "50s U neck profile," but in truth what we have here is a classic Jazz Bass profile with a bit more depth that fills the palm nicely. The worn-in, rounded fretboard edges and ideal C profile depth make this a bass that feels intuitive and familiar, with vintage style fretwire that shows virtually no wear with near perfect crowns. The back of the neck has a smooth nitro gloss finish that's worn down just enough to play effortlessly, while still having the feel of a finished neck. The headstock has a bit of modern Fender flair, with the "F" stamped tuning machines that turn very smoothly with a modern more exacting gear ratio than a vintage style tuner. The 1 1/2" Micarta nut is the ideal height and hand shaped as well.
