Fender Vintera '50s Precision Bass

Fender created the Vintera '50s Precision Bass for players who want the style and sound of Fender's golden era. Equipped with the coveted features that defined the decade - including period-accurate neck profile and playing feel, along with a re-voiced pickup - this bass has all of the punchy tone that made the P Bass famous.

Pete Griffin takes the '50s Precision Bass for a spin:


For authentic, original-era tone, engineers re-voiced the single split-coil P Bass pickup to sound more like the original. Seismic and punchy, it has the tone that made the P Bass one of the most popular electric basses. The "'50s P Bass C"-shaped neck has a 7.25"-radius fingerboard with 20 vintage-style frets for classic playing feel. A vintage-style, 4-saddle bridge with threaded saddles and vintage-style tuning machines provide original-era aesthetics, rock-solid performance and tuning stability. Other features include an anodized aluminum pickguard, chrome hardware and 4-bolt neck plate. Includes a deluxe gig bag.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Fender products.

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
Overall: This is a recreation as close as they can get within reason. I called Fender to check on Support and they were great. Talked to the guy about how they did everything they could within reason to recreate this 58 P Bass. Right down to the wire used on the pickups. The aluminum pickguard still needs to be removed to get truss adjustments done at the heal (just like the original). One piece maple neck, pickups, pickguard, tuning pegs, even fret wire as close as they could. The bass plays wonderfully and sounds amazing. It's a big neck with 1 3/4 nut. I love the feel but the string spacing makes me think twice about over playing. ;) So far I love it and zZounds is the greatest to work with. I would never order a guitar online without their 45 day no questions asked return/exchange. They take that stress out of the equation. Played it in Pep Band last night with my kids and got a bunch of compliments on the looks and sound. Will have it on stage for our next gig coming up. Mine is strung up with 19 year old Roto 77s. This bass is going to get gigged hard.
Style of Music: blues, rock, pop, oldies, surf, whatever feels good to play.

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: First purchase from this site. Bass arrived on time, zZounds staff was pleasant to deal with, used the no credit check financing with no issues. First 'real' P bass after working through some lower priced versions. Wanted that original chunky neck, with a classic P bass, James Jamerson kinda tone. Looked at a lot of other P basses, preferred something US made but could not find the 'original' specs within that line. Felt apprehensive about the price of a MIM instrument, within a few months of ownership I'm still in awe every time I pick it up. Fit and finish is stunning. Threw a set of LaBella Deep Talkin' flats, gave it a setup, exactly what I was after. Get a lot of compliments on the green color, fwiw.
Style of Music: Jazz, MoTown, Rock, Metal, Funk, Rockabilly, Surf, etc etc etc
