Fender and Iron Maiden’s Steve Harris Precision
For more than three decades, Steve Harris’s galloping fleet-fingered basslines have turbocharged U.K. metal titans Iron Maiden and have made him the most influential metal bassist alive.
Harris has stayed true to his battle-hardened Fender Precision Bass guitar over the years, and Fender now honors him with the Artist Signature Series Steve Harris Precision Bass.
This bass features a regally cool Royal Blue Metallic sparkle finish, with a chromed mirror pickguard, alder body, vintage-tint one-piece maple neck and fingerboard with 20 medium-jumbo frets, a Badass® II bridge, Seymour Duncan® Basslines SPB-1 split-coil Precision Bass pickup, chrome hardware, Steve Harris signature Rotosound® custom flat-wound strings and Harris’s signature on the back of the headstock. Deluxe gig bag included.
As the driving force behind rockers Iron Maiden for more than 25 years, Steve Harris and his bass playing have opened new musical avenues that paved the way for a second British Invasion during the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. This time around it was heavy metal, and most bass players since will cite Steve Harris as their major influence.
