Fender's MIJ Traditional Series encompasses a range of vintage-inspired Fender instruments. Combining iconic looks and "Golden Era" specs with renowned Japanese craftsmanship, these time-honoured guitars and basses pay tribute to some of the most coveted music-making tools ever created!

This Traditional Original '50s Precision Bass is a real "time capsule" instrument that provides the playability and sound of Fender's earliest electric bass. From its vintage-style electronic and hardware, to its thick "U"-shaped neck and stylish 1-ply pickguard — this retro 4-string is a nostalgic masterpiece that will give old-school bass aficionados plenty of satisfying vibe.

Key Features

  • Basswood Body — Lightweight timber with balanced tonal properties. A rock-solid foundation for the punchy single-coil pickup.
  • Bolt-On Construction — Produces the "snappy" note response synonymous with all Fender instruments.
  • "U"-Shaped Neck — Classic '50s profile provides comfortable playability with its girthy, traditional shape.
  • Vintage Frets — Smaller fret-wire gives your fingers reassuring contact with the fingerboard and allows you to play with plenty of control.
  • Fender Vintage-Style Pickup — Centrally-mounted single-coil pickup delivers the clear mid-heavy tone that the '50s P-Bass is renowned for!
  • 2-Saddle Bridge — True retro design, with barrel saddles maximising resonance and string response.
  • Bone Nut — Low-friction material minimises unwanted tuning slips and enhances sustain.
  • Vintage-Style Tuners — High-quality, old-school tuning machines allow for precise string pitching.
