1951 marked the birth of the Fender Precision Bass, permanently changing the face of music from that point on. This Custom Shop '51 Precision Bass pays tribute to those legendary first-year basses, and it's perfect for vintage enthusiasts seeking a premium axe dripping with old-school mojo.
This bass features an ash body with a heavy relic finish package that gives it the look of a genuine '50s Fender with years of gigging behind it. Its quartersawn maple neck has a '51 P Bass "U" profile that's nice and chunky, and its period-correct hardware and 1-ply parchment pickguard add to its classic aesthetic.
Powering this beast is a Hand-Wound '55 P-Bass pickup that delivers a rich, warm thump with deep lows, punchy mids, and crystal-clear highs. Just plug it into your favorite tube amp, crank the volume, and you'll churn out thunderous tones that'll take you right back to the golden era of rock 'n' roll.
Complete with a '51 P-Bass bridge with fiber saddles and custom shop vintage-style tuners, this beauty is excellent for players seeking a top-of-the-line Fender bass with a jaw-dropping sound and a killer, battle-worn look.
