To celebrate the 50th(!) anniversary of Thin Lizzy’s formation, Fender has officially released the Phil Lynott Precision Bass, recreated by Master Builder John Cruz.

The limited-edition model is a replica of the late singer and bassist’s ’78 P-Bass, which Lynott used throughout his career.

Specs include a two-piece select ash body, rift sawn 1975 U-shape maple neck and rosewood fingerboard.

There’s also one Custom Shop Hand-wound ’78 Single-Coil Precision Bass pickup, vintage-style tuners, a Bad Ass II bridge, large ‘70s style headstock and custom mirrored pickguard.

Additionally, the bass comes with a host of Lynott-inspired goodies, including a custom Anvil case, custom-made leather strap and studded wrist band and custom mirrored aviation sunglasses.

The Phil Lynott Precision Bass is being offered in a limited run of just 100 models, for $12,500 each.

If you fancy yourself a rocker (and a roller, too), head on over to Fender Custom Shop for more information.
