This is your Daddy's 60s Bass!

By Jonathan

Comments about Fender American Vintage '62 Precision Bass:

I love this bass! I have owned several Fenders over the years including an early 70s P-Bass. However, this 62 Precision captures what a P-Bass should really bring to the table when it comes to Rock & Roll. It is light and resonant like an old classic should be. It is solid and just feels great with true Mojo vibe. It growls and gives punch that was the true hook of Motown hit makers. And it is just fun to play responding like an old muscle car when you push the gas.... Check this one out but be ready to tweak it a little (I had to do a neck adjustment and intonation check). Looking forward to this one aging nicely over the years with exceptional finish materials and care towards original design.

Perfect Classic Rock Bass!

By DMN

Comments about Fender American Vintage '62 Precision Bass:

First off, I love this bass! I was in a Guitar Center the other day and was looking at basses. I tried several presicions, jazz, and warwicks. THIS WAS THE BEST (besides the Warwicks, obiviously)! It had great tone and through the Ampeqs was just a solid rocker. Its neck is nice, and it is very solid. The styling with covers is awsome aswell. Between this, a standard P-bass, and a Highway One P-bass, this was best over all! IF YOU WANT A PRESICION, GET A 62!

The best 100% A+ of the 1962 Fender Precision Bass I ever dream of here!!!!!.

Comments about Fender American Vintage '62 Precision Bass:

The electric bass Jamerson played was a stock 1962 Fender Precision Bass which was dubbed "The Funk Machine"!. Jamerson bought it after his first Precision (a gift from fellow bassist Horace "Chili" Ruth) was stolen!. It had a three-tone sunburst finish, a tortoise-shell pickguard, and chrome pickup and bridge covers (the latter containing a piece of foam used to dampen sustain)!. He typically set its volume and tone knobs on full!. This instrument was also stolen, just days before Jameson's death in 1983!. To date, it has not been found!. And all of the power you need, and the sounds you want it is just right here my friend!. All that's inspired by a '68 B-15 Flip Top, this is a tribute to those clean, fat, bass tones of the late 60's and early 70's!. It is the kind of tone you hear on most Motown recording, as played by the pioneering young bassist James Jamerson!. And now you can hook it up by a 8 by 10" inch speaker cabinet here by Line 6 LowDown 410 with a Hd750 750Watts Rack Mount Bass Amp Head here my new friend!!!!!.
