The Squier 40th Anniversary Gold Series Precision Bass delivers eye-catching looks with a selection of player-friendly, upscale features. For the celebration of this anniversary, the Squier/Fender design team created this very special instrument to bring advancing players classic P Bass performance and style, along with that well-defined low-end impact Precision players love.

A Body Built for Tone

The design choice of nato for the body wood might, at first glance, seem a little non-traditional compared to the usual choice of poplar, alder or ash for P Bass bodies. But, from both a tonal and sustainability angle, it makes a lot of sense for the Squier 40th Anniversary Gold Series Precision Bass. While nato is often compared to mahogany (in fact, it's frequently referred to as "Eastern mahogany") for providing a warm tone, it is also crisper, giving a nato body a comparable bite to the traditional woods used for a Precision. Nato is also widely available and more readily sustainable, making it a responsible choice as well. The body is topped with a gorgeous gloss finish, available in striking colors.

Fast, Comfortable Neck

The Squier 40th Anniversary Gold Series Precision Bass features a hyper-comfortable, 34"-scale C-profile maple neck with a bone nut and a 9.5"-radius, bound, Indian laurel fingerboard in a classic 20-fret configuration. Pearloid block inlays add an extra touch of refinement and a bit of flash to this celebratory instrument.

Classic Tone From Alnico 5

The Gold Series Precision Bass boasts a Fender-designed, Alnico 5 split-single-coil pickup that helps kill hum while delivering traditional P Bass tone. Featuring what is likely the most recorded bass sound of modern pop, rock, country and blues, this Squier 40th Anniversary edition is a stunning example of the sheer sonic muscle of the Precision design.

Hardware That Gleams

What truly sets the Squier 40th Anniversary Gold Series apart is its luxurious look. With gold-plated hardware—from the vintage-style tuning machines to the traditional four-barrel-saddle, top-load bridge—a gold anodized aluminum pickguard, bound fingerboard and an engraved 40th Anniversary neck plate, this is a very special instrument you will treasure for years to come.

Squier guitars have introduced innumerable guitarists to the world of Fender-designed guitars and basses over the years, and the Squier 40th Anniversary Gold Series Precision Bass is a reminder of how important that influence has been. With striking finishes, upscale looks and iconic P Bass tone, this is an instrument that's an obvious choice for any player's collection.
