Comments about Fender Classic Series '50s Precision Bass Lacquer:

I bought one of these in a local shop after a couple years of searching for a reasonably priced used Pbass with a maple fretboard. This thing plays and feels like the original, and I immediately gravitated toward playing some old school motown grooves. Big fat baseball bat neck, reverse tuners, vintage frets and bridge and old school slotted truss rod, just like they made it 60 years ago. The quality of this bass far exceeded my expectations and seems to be of a better build quality than their MIM standard series.

This is an ideal bass for someone playing finger style blues, R&B, etc. However, I personally am not a fan of the smaller vintage frets (I play a heavier style and the notes can get a little farty with such tiny frets) or the laborious process of making truss rod adjustments. That being said, if you are searching for something that has the looks, feel and sound of a vintage P-Bass, this is hands-down your best option.
