Fender Precision Bass with Maple Fingerboard Black 1977

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.
