The all-new Fender Troy Sanders Silverburst signature P-Bass is a perfect fit for the self-confessed caveman that powers Mastodon’s low-end duties. Powered by 18V active/passive pickups and with some neat touches to the P-bass formula.

The specifications on the new Fender Troy Sanders Silverburst signature P-Bass four-string are great. They include an alder body with a 34″, custom ‘70s P-Bass C shape maple neck. This is paired with a 9.5″ radius slab rosewood fretboard with 20 Medium Jumbo frets, White Pearloid Block inlays and a synthetic bone nut.

The design of this bass also includes the ability to either string-thru the body or via the HiMass bridge and so it has lots of great options for players.

All good stuff, but then you get that cool Silverburst finish all over the body and on the matching headstock. Plus, it has a few subtle nods towards the band, including the Mastodon “Remission” logo on the neck plate, an “Emperor of Sand” 12th fret inlay and Sanders’ signature decal on the back of the headstock. He describes the Silverburst logo on the rear as looking Stonehenge-like in the video below.

It comes with a pair of Tim Shaw-designed custom pickups. With a Troy Sanders Single-Coil Jazz Bass pickup at the bridge and a Troy Sanders Split-Coil P-Bass in the middle position.

These are paired with a custom-voiced active preamp with treble and bass controls. The bass also features an active/passive toggle switch and has a master volume, plus a pan-pot pickup selector.

The hardware includes the aforementioned four-saddle HiMass Vintage bridge and a set of standard open-gear tuning machine heads. It certainly looks like  a great weapon of choice for a caveman!
