Punk bass starts with Douglas "Dee Dee Ramone" Colvin. As the pounding heart of the Ramones, he pioneered a no-frills sound and style that left a permanent mark on rock music. On a white Fender Precision Bass slung impossibly low, he defined punk bass with simple, but breakneck bass lines delivered with such pulverizing sound, speed and conviction that he single-handedly set the template for generations of punk bassists to come.
The Dee Dee Ramone Precision Bass honors him with reverence and authenticity, just like any bassist since who's ever planted his feet in a wide stance, slung a Precision below the beltline and yelled a manic "1-2-3-4" count-off.
Features include an Olympic White gloss finish, maple neck with "C"-shaped profile and vintage-style heel truss-rod adjustment, 9.5"-radius maple fingerboard with 20 vintage-style frets, split single-coil pickup, three-ply black pickguard and vintage-style bridge with four single-groove saddles. Special features include Dee Dee Ramone signature on back of headstock, special "Dee Dee Ramone One-Two-Three-Four" neck plate, '70s Fender logo decal, single disk string tree and exclusive booklet with poster.

Comments about Fender Dee Dee Ramone Precision Bass Electric Bass Guitar:
This bass plays like butter and rips like it should! I am a huge fan of the Ramones and wanted this bass since before it was released as a signature and have been looking to get a P bass to join my collection and this was perfect! I have owned this product since its release and so far there is nothing it can't do. Not to heavy, it allows you to move around and stay on point. The olympic white looks good and the signature on the headstock and Ramones plate on the back of the neck are a nice touch. The booklet that comes with it is also very cool, showing some vintage photos of Dee Dee as well as some of his art work. My only complaint is that for the price it would have been cool if Fender hooked you up with a hardshell case rather then a flimsy gig bag, but what are you going to do?
