The Fender Bass, created 40 years ago by the inventive genius of Leo Fender, still remains today as the definitive electric bass. Before Fender, there was simply no electric bass at all! Leo's design was so revolutionary that it rapidly became a 'classic, ' an essential element which was responsible for defining the image of modern music. Every new bass is inspired (more or less) from his basic design. The Fender Bass tells the detailed story of the electric bass through the different models and their improvements, from their origins to the present form. Includes hundreds of black and white and color photos of the basses and their most famous players.
