⚌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.

From 1987 to 2017 when the American Standard line was replaced by American Professionals , the Fender American Standard Precision Bass was the ‘Standard’ model of the bass whose 1951 introduction changed the way music is presented, performed and recorded. At the time Leo Fender introduced a bass to match the quickly-accepted Telecaster and Esquire models, bass parts were normally played on acoustic, upright basses.

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.
