Introduced in 1951, the Fender Precision Bass was the first solid body electric bass guitar ever produced, and is undoubtedly the most popular bass guitar design throughout music history. The Precision Bass has long been the go bass guitar in studio and on stage, with its stripped back design, minimal controls and split coil pickup offering a huge amount of versatility for a variety of styles.
This 2001 Fender 50th Anniversary Precision Bass was released in a limited run of about 400 guitars to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the model. Constructed from a lightweight Ash body with a period correct Blonde finish and a Maple neck and fingerboard, this bass certainly evokes the look of a '50s P bass. The body is fitted with a USA made split coil P bass pickup, and a black anodised pick guard. The neck features a flatter 9.5" radius and a comfortable 'C' shaped profile, along with a vintage tint finish.
This guitar is in excellent condition, with no real signs of play wear to speak of. The guitar is internally and externally original, and includes its original hardcase.
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.
