The Fender Bass V Guitar

Fender is no stranger when it comes to being the first to create a unique instrument… (Precision Bass anyone?)

It should therefore be no surprise to anyone to learn that in 1965 Fender produced the first 5-string bass ever made, the Bass V. What might surprise you, however, was its lack of success.

The Bass V was oddly designed but even stranger was how that 5th string was used. These factors combined gave Fender another first… it was the first Fender bass to be discontinued.
