The Vintage Hot Rod '60s Precision Bass is a dual-pickup beauty that gives you the best P/J Fender bass tone, style and performance of both eras—authentically vintage-style design touches straight from the 1960s and hot-rodded modern mods ideal for today's players.
Premium features include an ash body; maple neck with "C"-shaped profile, Posiflex™ graphite support rods, vintage-style heel-end truss rod adjustment and satin back finish; and a compound-radius (7.25"-12") rosewood fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets, bone nut and aged white dot inlays. Richly versatile and powerful tone comes from its American Vintage '63 split single-coil Precision Bass (middle) and '64 Jazz Bass® single-coil (bridge) pickups.
Other features include a three-ply black pickguard, three knurled chrome control knobs (volume 1, volume 2, master tone), Fender Hi-Mass bridge, side-mounted oval output jack, vintage-style tuners with tapered shafts, Stealth "A" string retainer on headstock, locking strap buttons, and engraved Vintage Hot Rod neck plate with crossed checkered flags emblem.
