Debuting at NAMM 2018 is a brand new and eagerly anticipated line from Fender. The American Original series takes classic Fender designs from specific decades and fuses them with modern construction and switching for the ultimate vintage inspired guitar!
The Fender Precision Bass is one of the most popular bass guitars ever put into production, with its timeless design and incredible versatility; it has been a staple in the roster for over 60 years. The Fender American Original ‘50s Precision Bass takes us back to the golden era of bass construction.
The Alder body is typically comfortable thanks to the lush sweeping curves, and with a crisp Nitrocellulose finish it looks real slick. The Maple neck features a C profile and a sweet Rosewood fingerboard, designed for precision and comfort; it's equally at home playing big low end root notes or technical work further up the neck. 20 Vintage Tall frets and a 9.5" radius make the American Original Precision feel familiar and supremely comfortable.
Loaded with a Fender Pure Vintage ’58 split single coil P Bass pickup, you get period correct Fender tone. With enamel coated coil wire, cloth covered output wire, fibre bobbins and Alnico V magnets, there’s no mistaking that signature Fender bass thump.
With a deluxe brown hardcase, the American Original ‘50s Precision Bass is road ready and a great piece for both players and collectors.
