Fender Telecaster Bass Blonde, 1972

Fender Telecaster Bass Blonde, 1972

The Fender Telecaster Bass launched in the surprisingly late year of 1968, though its appearance is very much like the original, revolutionary 1951 Precision Bass. From a modern perspective, there isn’t a lot to the Fender Telecaster Bass.

Fender Telecaster Bass Blonde, 1972 - No Longer Available

The Fender Telecaster Bass launched in the surprisingly late year of 1968, though its appearance is very much like the original, revolutionary 1951 Precision Bass. From a modern perspective, there isn’t a lot to the Fender Telecaster Bass. It is basically an ash or alder slab body with a one-piece maple neck bolted to it, a bridge, and from 1968 to 1972 a single coil pickup with volume and tone controls.

❌SOLD❌Fender 51 Telecaster PJ Parallel Universe Bass Blonde, 2018

Here is a Fender 51 Telecaster PJ Parallel Universe Bass built in 2018, featuring a slab body with blonde finish and a Precision-Jazz or PJ pickup set!   Though now out of production, this is a new bass that still has its protective plastic on the tuner buttons and pickguard. When Leo Fender introduced his first bass in 1951 with the slab body and Telecaster style headstock seen here, it was named the Precision Bass. At that time, virtually all basses were both acoustic and fretless and this often led to inconsistencies in pitch. The addition of frets meant pitch precision, and in short order the Fender Precision bass had displaced acoustic fretless instruments in most genres.

This instrument is all original, used as intended, 1970 model Fender Telecaster Bass in translucent blonde finish – the same kind of finish as on early Telecasters. Yes, this was white when new. This particular bass was clearly used for many years in smoky environments, before second hand smoke legislation cleaned the air in bars and clubs across the country.
