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. By the end of the decade, notable changes include a new thicker polyester finish and a F-style tuning gears.

    The bass is great and just what I was looking for, BUT it's not from 1975. Everything I checked stated it as 1978. I kinda knew that from the photo's so it was no surprise.
