Fender’s first-ever turntable is a collaboration with MoFi

September 23, 2021

Fender has partnered with audio technology company Mobile Fidelity Electronics (MoFi) for its first-ever turntable, the PrecisionDeck. Limited to only 1,000 units worldwide, the new turntable has a shape designed by Fender Master Builder Yuriy Shishkov, is built using the same swamp ash wood as found on Fender’s Precision Bass guitars and finished in Fender’s three-color sunburst.

Internally, the components are designed and built by MoFi, with the same technology found in the company’s award-winning UltraDeck turntable system.

Fender describes the system as ready to play straight out of the box thanks to its pre-mounted MoFi MasterTracker pickup, which utilizes two low-mass magnets aligned in a V formation parallel to the record’s grooves to accurately extract music from LPs. Other features of the 25.5-pound PrecisionDeck include a 1.3″ Delrin platter that delivers deep black backgrounds and a fantastically low noise floor, 300RPM isolated AC synchronous motor, 10-inch straight aluminum gimbaled bearing Ultra tonearm with Cardas Audio wiring, hardened-steel inverted bearing system, anti-vibration feet, and a dust cover.

The Fender x MoFi PrecisionDeck is available now for $3,495. For more information, head to the MoFi store .
