Overview

Many consider Leo Fender's greatest triumph to have been the invention of the Fender Precision Bass in 1950 (prototype). This is a faithful replication of the 1957 Fender Precision. It has additionally been given the Fender Relic treatment for an authentic aged look. It sports all of the classic features of the '57, right down to the pickup cover and the ashtray bridge cover.

It has a volume and tone control and the classic Precision pickup. The relic wear points are where you'd expect them to be, giving it a look of comfort and familiarity. Maple neck with maple fingerboard.

John Cruz

Cruz also built the limited-run Moto guitar and amp sets, worked on the '49 Woody amp project and developed all production processes for the Rory Gallagher and Muddy Waters tribute guitars.
