Overview

As the first production model 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. By the beginning of 1965, CBS had taken full control of Fender and began a shift towards mass-production style construction. While some of these changes were not entirely detrimental through 1965, Fenders from 1965 an onward are less collectable than earlier models.

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