Fender Precision Bass Guitars
The Fender Precision Bass was the first mass produced bass guitar and became an instant classic upon its release in 1951. The P-Bass completely changed the way music was created and would forever cement Leo Fender's place in music history.

The Fender Precision Bass was a complete game changer when it was released in October 1951. It was an entirely new instrument that simply didn't exist before Leo Fender invented it. The predecessor to the iconic design was an upright double bass, which was large and bulky and far from portable. It was also difficult for the upright bass to be heard over the loud horn section and drums that formed many of the dance bands of the era. Enter the Precision Bass - a solid bodied bass that could be played like a conventional guitar with convenient amplification!
