Mikey Way, bassist for American rock band My Chemical Romance, has collaborated with Fender on a new Signature Jazz Bass, a recreation of one he played during the band’s reunion tour. “It’s as if the bass jumped straight from my dreams into reality,” he says. “It’s my favorite instrument I’ve ever played.”
Fender website states: “Featuring an alder body finished in dazzling silver sparkle and a sleek maple neck with black binding, block inlays and gloss black painted headstock, this bass is sure to turn heads. Boasting more than show-stopping looks, the Mikey Way Jazz Bass is built for maximum punch and versatility. A powerful pair of vintage-style ’70s single-coil Jazz Bass pickups deliver the classic sound that defined an epic era of rock. The ’70s “C”-shaped maple neck is comfortable and easy to maneuver for speedy riffs and high-octane gigs. Other features include a vintage-style 4-saddle bridge, ’70s style “Fender” stamped tuners, “Bullet” style truss rod nut and Mikey’s signature on the back of the headstock.
With its huge sound and distinctive look, the Mikey Way signature Jazz Bass is a testament to Way’s unique vision and style. For the die-hard My Chemical Romance fan or any player looking for a brilliant new bass, the Mikey Way Jazz Bass is the perfect instrument to take your performance to the next level.
The limited edition bass retails for $1,499.99, and you can find more info and shop on Fender.com.
