A re-imagined version of a classic Fender bass restored to the way it was when it was introduced all those years ago.

The American Vintage series introduces an all-new lineup of original-era model year guitars and basses that bring Fender history and heritage to authentic and exciting new life. With key features and pivotal design elements spanning the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s, new American Vintage series instruments delve deep into Fender's roots--expertly preserving an innovative U.S. guitar-making legacy and vividly demonstrating like never before that Fender not only knows where it's going, but also remembers where it came from.

The American Vintage Series has long presented some of Fender's best-selling guitars and basses (their early-'80s introduction, in fact, was one of the first signs that Fender was "back" as the CBS era ended). Today, Fender has boldly cleared the slate to make way for a fresh American Vintage series with new features, new specs and the most meticulous level of vintage accuracy yet. Rather than just replacing the previous models with different ones, Fender has completely and comprehensively re-imagined the entire vintage-reissue concept--restoring original tooling dies, voicing new pickups, reformulating vintage colors and more--based on actual vintage guitars and basses they tracked down to make sure they had it right. Fender did the work, and it shows, because there's pure magic in each new American Vintage instrument.

The American Vintage '58 Precision Bass commemorates the first year in which the bass that started it all appeared in a 3-Color Sunburst finish. That classic combination is now a longtime Fender tradition, and the '58 American Vintage Precision Bass brings you other authentic features including a lightweight alder body (ash on White Blonde model), thick "C"- shaped maple neck with 20 vintage-style frets and black dot inlays, gold anodized aluminum pickguard with lacquer finish, and new American Vintage '58 split single-coil pickup. Also includes lower-mounted finger rest, vintage-style bridge with threaded steel "barrel" saddles, flat-top knurled chrome control knobs, reverse tuners, mounted chrome pickup and bridge covers, and more. Available in 3-Color Sunburst, White Blonde and Black. Includes case.

    As reviewed by Curtis Brown on 6/24/2013

    To say , that this is the finest guitar I've ever owned, is an understatement. I saw this guitar at GC, just a few days ago, and instantly feel in love with it. I took my Black with Maple fret board Am. Deluxe P-Bass in and traded, in my opinion, way up. I purchased the Transparent White with Maple Fret Board, and couldn't be happier. The look, the sound, the feel of this guitar is totally awesome. This guitar is made just as it was back in 1958, even the tweed case. The neck is really wide,( which was a concern of mine, at first). After bringing it home, and running through about a dozen songs, my concern went out the window. This guitar plays as smooth as butter. I have always been a Jazz Bass fan forever, but, after buying this guitar, my Am. standard Jazz Bass, took a back seat to this one. My Ric. 4003, may never see the light of day again. It is that hot of a guitar. The workmanship on this guitar is flawless. Unfortunately, shortly after I brought this baby home, the ground wire broke. I took it back to GC, and they just put a new bead of solder to it and I'm back in business. Great job Fender, for stepping back in time, to bring back a true classic. Thank you Fender, and Thank you GC, for making this dream come true.
