Fender American Original 50s Precision Bass 2 Colour Sunburst S/N V1857644 8.98lb The Fender American Original 50s P Bass is a legend reincarnated. When you look at the myriad of basses on the market today, there is something hugely refreshing about a design that strips away all the gristle and leaves you with the pure essence. A bass that sounds, looks and feels simply perfect. We say: "You can't go wrong with a Fender P Bass - especially if it has the original tone and feel of a 50's one but with an updated feel. It really is the best of both worlds. It's also stunning to look at with its anodised pickguard." Myke Edwards - Bonners Guitar and Bass Specialist In 1951 when Leo Fender first introduced the Precision Bass, it was the start of a musical revolution. Smaller bands were emerging, and volume was increasing quickly with amp technology and audience size. The traditional upright bass increasingly felt out of place, and the "P" Bass filled the gap becoming the ultimate rock and roll tool. This Fender American Original 50s Precision Bass in 2-Colour Sunburst takes its cue from the third generation P Basses released between 1957 and 1959. Vintage-correct curves ensure the alder body feels sleek and elegant and is set off perfectly by a classic two-tone sunburst. The nitrocellulose finish is thin and allows the wood to breathe for increased tone while also ensuring that the instrument will age well and develop a unique character of its own. The maple neck has a thick "C" profile that is extremely comfortable and gives it an unmistakable 50s quality. At 9.5 inches the fretboard radius is instantly recognisable, and the vintage tall frets feel smooth and make vibrato a breeze. Carefully recreated vintage tuners ensure tuning accuracy and individual steel saddles guarantee perfect intonation all the way up to the 20th fret. Staying true to tradition, the American Original 50s P Bass features a Pure Vintage '58 Split Single-Coil pickup that highlights the harmonic mid-range of the instrument. It always sits perfectly in the mix while eliminating any hum or noise. The gold anodised aluminium pickguard really pops and looks as cool today as it did six decades ago. There is a reason why so many pros choose the Precision Bass. From Stax Records', Donald �Duck� Dunn to Pino Palladino, it has proved to be indispensable both live and in the studio and this model is a perfect example of the breed.
