Combining bold design and killer tone, the Limited Edition Mikey Way Jazz Bass is a serious instrument that demands attention. Featuring an eye-catching Silver Sparkle finish, black painted headstock, sleek maple neck and vintage-style pickups, it’s a distinctive instrument befitting Mikey’s unique vision and style as bassist of My Chemical Romance.
Powerful vintage-style pickups allow you to access the classic sounds that defined an epic era of rock.
Primed for the spotlight, this finish is sure to turn heads, especially when paired with a black pickguard and headstock.
Remarkably comfortable, a ’70s “C-”-shaped neck profile is easy to maneuver for high-octane gigs and speedy riffs.
The past year has been huge for My Chemical Romance fans.
After nearly a decade-long hiatus, the trailblazing quartet returned for a global tour and even delivered a new single (“Foundations of Decay”) that delivered on every stadium-sized expectation they’ve built since originally forming in the early 2000s.
Having risen from scrappy East Coast underground band to modern rock mavens on the heels of 3x certified Platinum albums like Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge and The Black Parade, My Chemical Romance’s return was certainly cause for celebration — one Fender is supporting with a new signature bass from founding member Mikey Way.
The Limited Edition Mikey Way Jazz Bass is perfect for anyone who wants to channel the genre-bending sound that made Way a giant in the worlds of pop, punk, emo and beyond.
You can’t look away from the stunning Silver Sparkle finish on the balanced alder body, as it glimmers from every angle. A black pickguard, black block inlays and black painted headstock add a sinister tone fit for any rock opera.
A set of vintage-style ’70s single-coil Jazz Bass pickups deliver versatile tones with Way’s trademark punch to cut through the mix, while a vintage-style 4-saddle bridge and “Bullet” style truss rod nut offer rock-solid tuning stability and easy adjustments.
The vintage appointments continue with a ’70s “C”-shaped neck profile sculpted for a comfortable playing feel — thinner at the first fret and thicker at the twelfth — 20 medium jumbo frets and a 9.5'' radius bound fingerboard. Open-gear tuning machines are also stamped with the Fender logo.
All in all, everything came together in a package perfectly suited to Way’s preferences. "It’s as if the bass jumped straight from my dreams into reality,” he said. “It’s my most favorite instrument I’ve ever played.”
Whether you’re an MCR diehard or a player looking for a brilliant new addition to your collection, the Limited Edition Mikey Way Jazz Bass is an instrument created to take every performance to the next level.
