Few images in '70s rock are as stirring as Phil Lynott, bassist/vocalist of Thin Lizzy, wearing his aviator shades and hoisting his P Bass above the crowd. As individual as he was, this customized bass sported a Mirrored pickguard that became his signature aesthetic touch. Master Builder John Cruz has painstakingly recreated this bass in precise detail, as only a Custom Shop Master Builder can. Not only is this limited-edition bass a true-to-the-era replica, we also threw some extra Lynott-inspired goodies into the custom Anvil® roadcase for you.

To craft this instrument, Cruz began with a two-piece select ash body, added a lacquer finish to let the body breathe with more tonal resonance—and, of course, the custom pickguard and a hand-wound '78 P Bass® split-coil pickup. The stable, rift-sawn maple neck has a lacquered headstock face. Along with an oil finish, giving it a fast feel that perfectly matched Lynott's fleet-fingered style. The 7.25"-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard hosts 20 jumbo frets, while the body sports a Badass® II high-mass bridge for extra sustain and punchy tone. Other features include Dunlop® strap locks, vintage- '70s-style tuning machines, bone nut and round string tree. Includes custom Anvil case, custom studded leather strap and custom studded wristband, mirrored aviator sunglasses and Certificate of Authenticity.
