The Fender Precision Bass, which debuted in 1951, is without a doubt the most well-known bass guitar model in music history. It was the first solid body electric bass guitar ever produced. With its simple design, few controls, and split coil pickup, the Precision Bass has long been the preferred bass guitar in both the studio and on stage. This versatility allows it to be used for a wide range of styles.
This 1978 Fender Precision Bass is a great example of a factory fretless version of the model. This Precision Bass has an Alder body, a Maple neck, and a rosewood fingerboard without the usual inlay markers. The natural finish is in good condition and showcases a nice wood grain on the front and rear of the body. Other features include a black plastic pick guard, a classic P Bass split coil pickup, and the four bolt neck.
This guitar is in very good condition with some minor play wear to the front and back of the body and some patina to the metal hardware. The original pickup, pickguard and bridge are still in place. The guitar is internally and externally original, with the pots dating to the 49th week of 1978.
This guitar has been given a full service and appraisal by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop, and includes a 3 year warranty. This guitar also includes a hard case.
