Feature: What it does:

Pure Vintage '63 split single-coil Precision Made from vintage materials; period-correct sound
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.
