Fender American Original 50s Precision Bass Guitar Maple in Aztec Gold w/Case - 0190102878
Few companies can honestly claim to have changed the world like when Fender created the Precision Bass in 1951. By making playing bass easily accessible, it helped musicians find their creative voice and create new forms of music.
The American Original '50s Precision Bass updates the playability of this groundbreaking instrument while retaining the original sound and style that changed the world. The Pure Vintage '58 P Bass split-coil pickup is as period-correct as possible, from the enamel-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, fiber bobbins and alnico 5 magnets. There's no mistaking the powerful punch of this pickup that helped shape the sound of modern music.
Other touches include vintage-tall frets, original-era body radii, vintage-style hardware-including a four-saddle vintage-style bridge, vintage-style hardshell case and a lacquer finish that lets the wood breathe naturally with resonant tone, and wears in a distinctively appealing way.
Representing a fundamental shift in musical possibilities, the American Original '50s Precision Bass is the best way to experience the performance, style and tone that made Fender the foundation of modern music.
