The Fender American Original 60s Precision Bass Guitar celebrates a landmark decade in the development of the world’s first electric bass guitar. Back in the 60s, the P-bass was offered with a rosewood fingerboard, along with a number of other new and innovative tweaks for the era.
This new model, which forms part of the Fender American Original series, takes its inspiration from the classic models of this decade, complete with plenty or era-correct detail and materials.
Built around the classic, double cutaway, alder body, the bolt-on maple neck is shaped to a wider ‘C’ profile, like the original ’63. This is finished with an authentic rosewood fingerboard inlaid with clay-coloured fret markers, again, much like the original.
Both neck and body are finished with Fender’s Flash-Coat Lacquer. This all nitrocellulose finish nods to the finishes of vintage instruments, and provides a beautiful playing feel, whilst providing an added sonic resonance, and ‘singing’ tone.
63 Split Coil Pickup
The pickup is a familiar, split coil design, but this particular version is a unique American Original ’63 model, delivering plenty of classic, warm p-bass punch. Electronics are kept simple, as you would expect on this classic bass design. Two flat-topped, knurled knobs control tone and volume.
The P-Bass has always been a beautiful balance of iconic looks, versatile tone, and rock-solid build and reliability. The Fender American Original 60s Precision Bass Guitar takes the key elements from a golden era of this great instrument and places them in a modern classic.
