❌SOLD❌  Fender 51 Reissue Precision Bass MIJ Butterscotch, 2010

Here’s a revisit to the one that started the electric bass revolution – the Fender 51 Reissue Precision Bass, here seen as a Made In Japan version dating to around 2010 and carrying the classic butterscotch finish. As Leo Fender began producing amplifiers and electric guitars – both Spanish and Steel types – it became apparent that acoustic basses were not going to keep up, and were harder to play in tune.
