Introduced in the early 1950s, the Precision Bass profoundly affected the sound of popular music and quickly became an indispensable instrument for musicians everywhere. It introduced a deep and powerful new sound into the rocking and rolling 1950s and set a new stage for great sounds to come in the ensuing decades.
The Classic Series '50s Precision Bass Lacquer delivers the distinctive 1950s-era look, sound and vibe of those first Fender basses, with vintage style and an authentic nitrocellulose lacquer finish on its alder body. Other features include a C-shaped maple neck, 7.25"-radius maple fingerboard with 20 vintage-style frets and black-dot inlays, vintage-style split single-coil pickup, gold anodized pickguard, four-saddle American Vintage bass bridge, and vintage-style reverse tuners. Tweed case included.

Comments about Fender Classic Series '50s Precision Bass Lacquer:
Classic, simple, and versatile Precision tone. The neck feels great and the lacquer looks fantastic. Very good workmanship for a MIM bass.
No fret buzz, and it came set up perfectly out of the box. The included gig bag is nice and durable as well. This is my new favorite bass to play, next to my Geddy Lee Jazz and my Jaguar. It is a nice addition to my Fender collection.
Already recorded with it, and it sounds mint through my SansAmp DI box.
The only negative comment I have is regarding the pickgaurd. It has a "gritty" finish on it that is uncomfortable when doing slap/pop on it, plus the off-white color is a bit ugly. (It looks white in the picture, but it is really a cream color.) I am replacing it with a smooth, black pickguard.
