Steve Harris’s galloping fleet-fingered basslines have turbocharged U.K. metal titans Iron Maiden for decades and have made him one of the most influential metal bassists alive. Harris has stayed true to his battle-hardened Precision Bass over the years, and his signature Steve Harris Precision Bass now comes in his famously regal gloss white finish with special pinstriping, mirrored pickguard and West Ham United F.C. crest.

Other ironclad features include a single powerful Seymour Duncan Steve Harris signature model pickup, Fender High Mass bridge, Rotosound Steve Harris Signature flat-wound strings and Harris’s signature on the back of the headstock. Available February 17, 2015.

The Road Worn basses take this essential concept to the masses. Each bass is modeled after the most popular designs from the ’50s and ’60s.
