More about Vintage Custom 1951 Precision Bass®

The debut of the Precision Bass in 1951 is arguably one of the most important milestones of the 20th Century. The P Bass® gave bass players a means to be heard clearly while eliminating the need to lug around a heavy (and fragile) upright bass. It also profoundly changed the sound of popular music and gave birth to a slew of new musical styles. The Vintage Custom 1951 Precision Bass offers the appointments that made the original the undisputed champion of working bassists the world over, including a supremely fast and comfortable tinted quartersawn maple neck with a 7.25" fingerboard radius, '51-‘55 P Bass bridge with vintage fiber bridge saddles and flatwound strings. It also boasts an original slab-style P Bass body with a NOS flash-coat lacquer finish that lets the instrument breathe more organically and shows some of the natural grain through the finish.

Other features of the Vintage Custom 1951 Precision Bass include Closet Classic hardware, a 2-piece ash body, 20 vintage frets, '55 P Bass pickup, volume and tone controls, single-ply black pickguard, bone nut, round string retainer and vintage-style tuning machines.

A living legend, this Precision Bass sounds just as good now as the original did back in 1951. Includes a deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
