Fender Steve Harris Precision I love Steve Harris. Iron Maiden is an iconic band, and he is the sonic and spiritual epicenter of it. I love that it’s a maple-body Fender Precision. That’s very unusual. And it’s resonant and great-sounding because of it. I’m a Precision guy, and an Iron Maiden guy. What’s not to love, right? Well, it is a good bit heavier than your typical P-bass. It is amazing that he has logged all those gigs playing such a heavy bass. In addition to this maple body, there is a traditional maple neck, and the usual Precision appointments. My current favorite Precision pickup is in this bass, too: the Seymour Duncan® Steve Harris SPB-4 signature model. The electronics are as straightforward and vintage as it gets. No shielding, either (and it really doesn’t’ need it). So, it’s a Precision and it’s well-built for the price point.

It’s under a grand but feels more expensive in your hands. If you’re after the ‘Maiden look and you’ve got the shoulder (and the attitude) for a little added weight, there’s no other bass on the planet like it – except Steve’s personal bass.
