The top of the line American Original series boasts the highest build quality, specs and sound of any Fender production guitar. What you're getting here are specific features associated with a decade of Fender history.

This is the bass that started it all. The '50s Precision is a gorgeously vintage instrument packing thunderous tone and old school feel.

Construction

In the build department, the '50s P bass deviates very little from the classic formula. It's made of a nitro lacquered alder body with a maple neck and fingerboard packing 20 tall frets. 

The thick “C” shape neck fills the satisfyingly fills the hand while its 9.5” radius fretboard is easy to navigate. It's all about the playability, with next to nothing impeding your hand movement.

Sound

With one pickup driving the tone forward, it had better be good. And it certainly is. The Pure Vintage '58 Split single coil is warm and all-encompassing in tone, able to hold down rhythm space with aplomb.
