Released in 1951, the Fender Precision Bass was the first mass-produced & widely-adopted electric bass guitar. With its thick low-end and pin-point precision, these instruments are still incredibly popular to this day!
Did you know that the Precision Bass was so popular when it came out in 1951 that they weren’t called 'electric bass guitars', but were frequently called 'fender basses'? That's how much of an impact it made in its first few years! Originally built with a single pickup and flat body, over the years they've gotten more comfortable and much more versatile with a wide range of models to suit almost any style. For decades, Fender Precision Basses have been a big part of blues, rock, soul, jazz, funk, punk and more. They produce a deep, powerful sound that's guaranteed to fill any mix with low-end "thump".
