Comments Leo Fender introduced the Precision Bass in 1951, and it’s not too much of a stretch to say that this brilliantly simple design changed the way music sounded and was presented. The bass could now be heard at any volume, and there’s no comparison for portability between a P-Bass and an acoustic upright!

This refinished 1959 Fender Precision Bass is in great playing and structural condition. It plays really well and has great punch and tone – even with the mutes installed and active!

Serial Number 34433, and the pencilled date is 4-59; built during April, 1959 at Fender’s original facility in Fullerton, California, USA.
Pricing $4,500.00 CAD with original tweed case.
Neck Maple neck, with skunk stripe and black dot position markers. The decal is in reasonable shape with some chipping in the word ‘Precision’.
Frets This instrument has been refretted for playability, and there is lots of fret material for years of playing.
Body Alder body with comfort contours. The body has been refinished but the shapes and edges have been well-preserved.
Finish This bass has had its body refinished in natural, and the top of the fingerboard has also been refinished – this is common during a refret on a maple fingerboard instrument.
Hardware/electronics Original hardware
Playability/Action This plays very well. Lots of punch and the legendary P-Bass tone!
Case Original tweed hardshell rectangular case included.
