Fender 1953 Precision Bass Blonde

Fender 1953 Precision Bass Blonde

Here is a real treat – a Fender 1953 Precision Bass, an early example of one of the most influential instruments ever built. The revolutionary introduction of the solidbody and fretted Precision Bass allowed bassists to follow guitarists in accuracy of pitch and precision tuning, and also in the area of stage volume through amplification without feedback. Without this innovation, we probably wouldn’t have gone to arenas or festival grounds to see incredibly loud artists.
