We simply cannot get over this bass! It plays like absolute butter and comes in at a very nice and beautifully resonant 8lbs 6oz. One of the things that really stick out to us about the Hurley is just how balanced it is across the entire fretboard. Every note, every string totally balanced and equal. The relic on this is fantastic! No dents or dings at all but heavily checked. It looks just as good as it sounds. The back of the neck is unfinished and really allows you to fly on these LaBella flats. Add the mute and this is one versatile groove machine. In our opinion, this bass is a 10 of 10. As good of a P Bass as we've ever played! Visit our Charlotte, NC showroom or shoot us a message to see what this thing is all about.
Bassist Sean Hurley has certainly made his mark in L.A., playing bass on tour and on record for John Mayer while maintaining an astonishing pace as an in-demand studio bassist with artists including Ringo Starr, Annie Lennox, Robin Thicke, Alanis Morissette, Vertical Horizon, and Colbie Caillat. Hurley recently anchored Mayer's Born and Raised as well as the latest release, Paradise Valley, with his well-worn '61 Fender Precision Bass.
The Fender Custom Shop now replicates Hurley’s favorite Precision Bass in three colors—Three-color Sunburst, Olympic White and Charcoal Frost. When we were spec’ing out Hurley’s original bass, we noticed a piece of foam he’d stuffed under the strings in front of the bridge to deaden the strings, so we designed a special Fender string mute that can easily be engaged at any time during a song—a feature never before offered on a Fender bass.
