Fender 57 Reissue Precision Bass Sunburst, 1982

Fender 57 Reissue Precision Bass Sunburst, 1982

Here we have a Fender 57 Reissue Precision Bass, in two-tone sunburst and built during 1982 in Fullerton, California, during the period of CBS ownership. This bass reproduces the second major evolutionary step of the P-Bass towards its current form. Initially, the Precision Bass used a slab body and single-coil pickup. To keep pace with the ‘New for 1954’ Stratocaster, in that year the Precision Bass also received body contours. This lasted until 1957, when the new hum-cancelling split pickup was introduced.

⚌Reduced‼ Fender Precision Bass Maple Neck Black, 1975

⚌Reduced‼ Fender Precision Bass Maple Neck Black, 1975

Here we have a handsome, almost all original, Fender Precision Bass Maple neck built at the CBS/Fender Fullerton plant in 1975 – the pot codes date to 1974. First appearing in October 1951, the Fender Precision bass was a brilliant piece of industrial design. This innovation brought modern influences to the bass world – such as the ability to reliably and consistently produce a precise pitch, and to play at any volume without feedback. Quickly adopted, the Precision Bass was updated in 1954 to visually match the new Stratocaster, and has been in production with really only minor modifications since then.   The P-Bass is arguably one of the most functionally successful bass instruments ever built, having appeared on more recordings and stages than any other bass.

NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!! Fender 1956 Precision Bass Sunburst

The Fender 1956 Precision Bass was a transition model and the last production version of this fantastically influential instrument before it took its final form in 1957. Introduced in 1951 with a ‘slab’ body and single coil pickup, the Precision Bass was rapidly popular and in 1954 gained ‘comfort contours’ to match the new Stratocaster model. In 1957, the P-Bass was revised with a larger headstock, new pickguard and the two-coil humbucking pickup that Fender, like most manufacturers, had been developing.
