One of Fender’s most important models, the Precision Bass made its first appearance in 1951, where its sound and playability quickly made it a success. Today’s P-Bass offers the same deep, powerful sound as the originals, but the Fender Classic Series '50s Precision Bass Lacquer offers the same authentically vintage finish with its coating of gloss nitrocellulose lacquer.

Thinner than its modern counterpart, this finish allows the body of the Fender Classic Series '50s P Bass Lacquer to vibrate more freely, and therefore provide more resonance and a nicer tone. In addition you can expect the finish to age nicer, to give you a more pleasing vintage aesthetic over time.


The Fender Classic Series '50s Precision Bass Lacquer is comprised of time-tested components, alongside era-specific additions, to offer Fender tone and playability, with vintage good looks. Along with the nitrocellulose lacquer the alder body has also been treated to a gold anodised pickguard, which stands out nicely from the black finish.

Bolted to the body of the Classic Series Fender '50s Precision Bass Lacquer is a maple neck carved to the highly playable C-shape profile and finished with gloss nitrocellulose lacquer. On top of the neck is a 7.25"-radius maple fingerboard with 20 vintage-style frets and black dot inlays. This lies between a synthetic bone nut and a four-saddle American Vintage bass bridge. The ‘50s look continues throughout with Vintage-Style reverse tuners, strap buttons, 4-bolt neck plate, and truss rod nut, right down to the Vintage-Style split single-coil Precision Bass pickup; controllable by knurled chrome master volume and master tone control knobs.

The Classic Series offering of a Fender '50s Precision Bass Lacquer comes complete with a tweed case.

Posted on 13/04/2014 by gaz Picked up one of these as a backup to my USA precision and now its my main bass and my USA precision is my backup. Fell in love with it as soon as i plugged it in. Neck is a bit broader than usual but I have big hands so no problem to me. Really well finished, well constructed and looks the part.
