Fender Precision Bass Black Refinish, 1959

Leo Fender’s Precision Bass broke new ground in a number of ways, and it can be argued that it changed the way music is presented to audiences. Compared to acoustic archtop basses, the P-Bass is very portable, can work at any volume without feedback, and can provide pitch with precision. Indeed, the very idea of adding frets to a bass was radical and suddenly anyone could play in tune.

Leo Fender’s Precision Bass had a profound and overwhelming effect on the way music has been presented. The ‘Precision’ name refers to the ease of precise intonation, not always the case with fretless acoustic basses. Most bassists rapidly shifted to using fretted electric basses. With better tuning and much greater portability, the P-Bass was an instant hit.
