Fender is reissuing the fabled Swinger model in a new limited run, just in time for its 50th anniversary. In addition to the original oddball body and headstock shape, the new Swinger boasts a 22-fret short-scale neck with a rosewood fretboard and a three-saddle hardtail bridge.
The one-pickup, short-scale budget model was produced for a short time in 1969 out of surplus inventory parts from the Fender Bass V and Musicmaster and disappeared almost immediately and was never promoted in Fender literature (though it has been used by artists like Ben Kweller and the Talking Heads’ Tina Weymouth).
Includes Fender F610 gig bag.
