The Bass Book
Available in Stock
In the early 1950s the Fender company introduced the musical world to the electric bass guitar, which Tony Bacon and Barry Moorhouse consider 'the most subversive new instrument of the 20th century'. Explaining how the strange hybrid became established as the firm foundation of modern music, they trace its changing design across four decades. The concluding reference section provides specifications and production histories of bass guitars made by 46 companies.
