The American Original Series guitars from Fender captures the classic vibe of their legendary guitars of bygone decades, with modern features, components, build technology, and feel. The solid body electric bass guitar was invented by Leo Fender with the introduction of the Precision Bass in 1951. This is the iconic bass guitar that started it all. Before the Precision came along, bassists had to haul huge heavy stand up basses around everywhere, and they have been thanking Leo Fender since.
The Fender American Original '50s Precision Bass continues the tradition of playability for this iconic instrument while adding modern updates and appointments. With a nitrocellulose finished body of ash and a maple neck with the much loved Thick C profile, the Pure Vintage ’58 Precision Bass split-coil pickup is as authentic as possible, down to the enamel-coated coil, cloth-covered output wires, and Alnico 5 magnets, and throws out a wide range of tones. Nickel/Chrome hardware adds vintage look and feel, including a 4-saddle vintage-style bridge with threaded steel saddles provides amazing support for staying in tune.
