Overview

As the first production model solid body bass guitar, the Fender Precision bass was an absolutely revolutionary instrument upon its introduction in 1951. Built as a bass counterpart to the Telecaster, the Precision or P Bass evolved throughout the ‘50s with changing electronics, body shape, and cosmetic details. This first run features a slab ash body without contours, a flat-pole single coil pickup, and a Tele-shaped headstock.

Notable Players: Geezer Butler, Roger Waters, John Deacon, Sting
