More about 1959 Journeyman Relic® Precision Bass®

Arguably Leo Fender’s greatest gift to modern musicians, the Precision Bass® was the world’s first electric bass. A definitive year for the ground-breaking P Bass®, 1959 introduced a rosewood fingerboard to its maple neck, setting forth an insurrection in rumble. The expert craftsmen at Fender® Custom Shop have given the Journeyman Relic® P Bass® a more-than-tastefully worn lacquer finish, in addition to a stunning gold anodized pickguard, vintage P Bass® bridge threaded steel saddles and hand-wound ’62 P Bass® pickups for that world-beloved low-end tone.

In vintage-correct fashion, this P Bass® sports a 2-piece alder body, quartersawn maple neck with a “ '60s Oval C"-shaped neck profile, 9.5"-radius slab rosewood fingerboard and 20 6105 frets.

Other appointments include vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and round string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
