Fender American Original '60s P Bass

An updated take on the instrument that created the pop culture soundtrack of the 20th century, the Fender American Original '60s Precision Bass is the best way to get original-era sound and style with today's feel.

By the 1960s, the Precision Bass was the workhorse electric bass; from the clubs of Detroit to the beaches of Southern California, its tone laid the foundation for modern music. The American Original '60s Precision Bass has all of the features with which the P Bass conquered the world of music*elegantly simple, its sound, style and comfort are joined by modern playability.

The Pure Vintage "63 P Bass split-coil pickup is as period-correct as possible, from the enamel-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, fiber bobbins and alnico 5 magnets. There*s no mistaking the powerful punch of this pickup that helped shape the sound of modern music. The thick "1963 C"-shaped neck profile gracefully fills the fret hand, while the 9.5"-radius fingerboard will feel familiar to any player. Other authentic touches include vintage-tall frets, original-era body radii, vintage-style hardware - including a four-saddle vintage-style bridge - vintage-style hardshell case and a lacquer finish that not only lets the wood "breathe" naturally with resonant tone, it also wears in a distinctively appealing way.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Look NO further. Your search for the real deal is over!"
Overall: Big fat amazing neck. Just like the original early 60's P basses. Amazingly PHAT tone right out of the box. No need for a $10,000 Vintage or Custom shop P bass. If you are looking for the Real deal? This is it and for under $2,000.
Style of Music: Soul Music!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "WORTH EVERY PENNY"
Overall: I see so many times people saying they bought a Squier and changed the pick ups......blah blah blah. Sorry but nothing in this world can compete with this bass. The construction is amazing. It feels like a dream. The sound has punch like no other bass. It's rich and full. Just pay the extra money and get a real bass like this
Style of Music: Punk rock n roll

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
