A Fresh Bass with Vintage Character
Your Fender Road Worn '50s Precision electric bass comes with just what you'd expect from a popular decade in Fender's history. An alder wood P Bass body, a one-piece bolt-on maple neck in a comfortable C neck shape, a smooth maple fingerboard with 22 vintage-styled frets, slick nickel/chrome hardware, a cool gold anodized aluminum pickguard, a sturdy American Vintage Precision Bass bridge, and volume and tone control knobs to dial in your Precision Bass split single-coil pickup all make this '50s-looking axe a treat to play and hear. See how this baby upgrades your game by firing it up and letting it purr.
Alder Precision Bass Body
Your Road Worn Precision bass's body is cut into Fender's instantly recognizable Precision body shape that fits right against your front like a comfortable puzzle piece. Alder is a very popular choice for Fender guitars. It's a medium-weight wood, so it won't strain your back, and it pushes your mids and lows gently, giving your tone a pleasing, full-bodied sound. Alder also provides your playing a decent amount of sustain and resonance.
Precision Bass Split Single-Coil Pickup
Packed inside your axe's alder body is a Precision Bass split single-coil pickup to capture and project your notes. This pickup's two-piece configuration captures your higher strings closer to the bridge, while your lower strings are picked up closer to the neck. This gives your lower tones a nice and beefy color, while your higher notes hive slightly more brightness and edginess to them, allowing your higher melodic notes to cut through with a little more presence. It's a classic design that's stood the test of time since the original P Bass hit the scene in the 1950s.
C-Shaped Maple Neck and Fingerboard
You'll love the way this maple neck feels once you wrap your hand around its comfortable C shaped cut. Its maple fingerboard is smooth to the touch, and your fingers will glide effortlessly across this appendage's 22 vintage-style frets. The maple wood on this neck gives your playing a pleasant tightness, and although maple is a somewhat bright wood, your high notes won't have any overbearing timbre. A warm and well-rounded tone is what you get with every note from your Road Worn '50s Precision bass.
Secure and Sleek Chrome/Nickel Hardware
Adding to this baby's vintage looks is its slick chrome/nickel hardware. Your vintage-style reverse tuners give this axe a cool aged look, and your American Vintage Precision Bass bridge holds your game down in style and confident security. Your notes sustain alluringly and stay in tune for longer periods of time while you're playing, so you can focus on performing without any distractions.
