Product Description

The Fender Classic Series '50s Precision Bass Lacquer delivers the distinctive 1950s-era look, sound and vibe of those first Fender basses, with vintage style and an authentic nitrocellulose lacquer finish on its alder body. Other features include a "C"-shaped maple neck, 7.25"-radius maple fingerboard with 20 vintage-style frets and black-dot inlays, vintage-style split single-coil pickup, gold anodized pickguard, four-saddle American Vintage bass bridge, and vintage-style reverse tuners. Tweed case included.

Introduced in the early 1950s, the Precision Bass profoundly affected the sound of popular music and quickly became an indispensable instrument for musicians everywhere. It introduced a deep and powerful sound into the rocking and rolling 1950s and set the stage for great sounds to come in the ensuing decades.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Classic P bass"
Overall: Plays and sounds liker a classic Precision bass. Balance, sound and feel are excellent. No dead spots on the neck. Capable of low action. The Nitro finish feels great. Neck feels great to play wide and not too thick The overall construction is very good. Seems like a non-road worn precision. I am really happy with this bass. If you want a classic P bass and don't want to dish out the cash for an American Vintage Re-issue, this is the bass for you.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Mexi AVRI, Great bass"
Overall: Build quality is truly excellent. Fretwork is some of the best i've seen on a sub $2k bass. Bought mine from zZounds and was the first person to touch since the Fender factory. Bass was setup fine. Hardware was all installed properly and seeing the finish when opening the case just really impresses. The nitro is beautiful!Bass is basically the Mexican version of the AVRI. The pots are full size CTS everything else appears to be the same but the pickups. Sounds and plays like a big neck P bass. Exactly what I wanted. Case is fine. My bass fits great. I usually use a gig bag anyway.
