Fender 1956 Precision Bass Sunburst

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.

❌SOLD❌ Fender 62 Jazz Bass Reissue Olympic White Made in USA, 1994

❌SOLD❌ Fender 62 Jazz Bass Reissue Olympic White Made in USA, 1994

Here we have a Fender 62 Jazz Bass Reissue from 1994, in the Olympic White finish. This is a Made in USA model featuring early style concentric controls! The 62 Fender Jazz Bass reissue draws closely from the initial 1960 to 1962 Jazz Bass models. The Jazz Bass was Leo Fender’s second distinct bass model after the two iterations of the seminal Precision Bass. Seeking to capture the remaining jazz bassists still using acoustic basses, this model featured a narrower neck for fast playing, and new single coil pickups with a punchier, more focused tone.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Jazz Bass Natural Refinish, 1966

❌SOLD❌ Fender Jazz Bass Natural Refinish, 1966

Here is a Fender Jazz Bass Natural refinish, with body and neck built towards the end of 1965 but assembled, wired and sold in early 1966. The Jazz Bass was introduced in 1960, as Leo Fender’s second distinct bass after the two versions of the Precision Bass. Targeted towards Jazz players and taking design cues from the then-new Jazzmaster and Jaguar models, particularly the offset body, the Jazz Bass offered a brighter, more focused tone with less fundamental than the Precision Bass along with a much narrower neck.
