'50s Precision Bass Added to Fender's Classic Series
July 1, 2005
As with its predecessors, the new Fender '50s Precision Bass guitar is a straight-ahead, no-nonsense instrument. Its alder body and split single-coil Precision Bass pickup evoke the signature tone of the instrument, which has provided the backdrop for uncountable recordings and live performances since its inception more than 50 years ago.
Built today at Fender's state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Ensenada, Mexico, the new Fender '50s Precision Bass guitar features the finest materials available to ensure that this model will still be playing strong for the next 50 years. The sturdy one-piece maple neck comes with vintage-specification tuning machines, with the body featuring a gold anodized pickguard and vintage-specification top-load bridge.
