Fender American Original '50s Precision Bass, White Blonde

Introduced in 1951, the Fender P Bass is the instrument that many consider to be the first widely accepted and played, electric bass. Quickly becoming a consistent favourite due to its superb playability and iconic tone, the Precision Bass was quick to become well established across all genres. The American Original '50s Precision Bass continues this legacy, and combines a classically inspired build and style, with modern features. The best of both worlds? We certainly think so.

Jazz, funk, reggae, punk, soul, rock - the P Bass has been there, and continues to do so, and with this incarnation the authentic vibe is not only provided aesthetically, but also sonically via the Pure Vintage '58 Precision Bass split-coil pickup, which features an enamel-coated coil, cloth-covered output wires, and Alnico 5 magnets; that legendary fat low end, punchy midrange, and toothy treble that features on so many classic recordings is to be found in abundance here. The Thick C-style Maple neck profile provides a familiar, but never taken for granted, comfort and playability, while a modern 9.5" radius Maple fingerboard, with vintage-tall frets and traditional dot markers, makes for a precise and up to date feel.

Features
  • Alder body with lacquer finish
  • Single Pure Vintage ‘58 split-coil P Bass pickup
  • Thick C-style neck profile; 9.5” radius fingerboard
  • Vintage-style hardware; four-saddle bridge
  • Includes vintage-style hardshell case

  • Representing a fundamental shift in musical possibilities, the American Original ‘50s Precision Bass is the best way to experience the performance, style and tone that made Fender the foundation of modern music.


    What Fender say:

    Rather than focussing on specific model years, the American Originals have cherry picked a number of features from across a certain decade and combined this with modern features such as a 9.5" Radius on the Fretboard, and 6105 style Tall Vintage frets for a lower action that won't fret-out on bends.

    This Vintage Modern approach combines classic old school features like thin skin Nitrocellulose Lacquer and meticulously reproduced period correct pickups with some modern electronics and neck profiles.

    Few companies can honestly claim to have changed the world like we did when we created the Precision Bass in 1951. By making playing bass easily accessible, it helped musicians find their creative voice and create new forms of music. The American Original ‘50s Precision Bass updates the playability of this groundbreaking instrument while retaining the original sound and style that changed the world.

    The Pure Vintage ’58 P Bass split-coil pickup is as period-correct as possible, from the enamel- coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, fiber bobbins and alnico 5 magnets. There’s no mistaking the powerful punch of this pickup that helped shape the sound of modern music. Other authentic touches include vintage-tall frets, original-era body radii, vintage-style hardware — including a four-saddle vintage-style bridge — vintage-style hardshell case and a lacquer finish that not only lets the wood “breathe” naturally with resonant tone, it also wears in a distinctively appealing way.
