Overview

As the first production model bass guitar, the Fender Precision bass was an absolutely revolutionary instrument upon its introduction in 1951. The Precision or P Bass evolved throughout the ‘50s with changing electronics, body shape, and cosmetic details. P Basses from after the CBS Fender buyout of 1965 (which brought more of a mass-production style of construction) are of less interest to collectors than their earlier counterparts.

Wood Composition:  
Adler body, Maple neck, Maple fingerboard
