The Fender Precision Bass from 1959 is among the most treasured electric basses in history. It being the first year the rosewood fingerboard was introduced on the quarter-sawn maple neck, this faithful reissue includes that feature. This alder body beauty has a nitrocellulose lacquer finish, which has additionally received the relic treatment, giving the instrument the look and vibe of a well-loved companion.
The essential 1959 appointments are all there; the ashtray bridge cover over the vintage bridge, the pickup cover and the grab bar. The gold pickguard, split single coil pickup, single volume and tone knobs and the open-geared tuning pegs will excite a primal attraction in any bassist who appreciates the simple perfection of the 1959 design.
