Fender Precision basses have been the byword for quality in the music industry since its launch in 1951. The iconic image of Paul Simonon of The Clash sending his Fender Precision to an early grave cemented the bass in rock and roll history (not that we would recommend this). The Fender Precision has been at the forefront of musical innovation and rock and roll for generations.
'50s style for the modern vintage
The attention to detail on the Squier '50s P Bass is outstanding from the authentic pickups to the "C" profile neck, Fender have sought to bring back to life a golden era of smooth tone. Utilising Pine for the body keeps the bass relatively light while being hardy enough to provide that low smooth tone so familiar to P Bass players. The Maple neck is classically playable and Maple fingerboard will provide silky sustain when needed.
Back to the drawing board
Recreating some of the iconic features Leo Fender himself designed is one of many reasons to own this bass. The Fender Designed Alnico Single-Coil pickup adds to the heritage of the instrument and provides the '50s era timbre not found in other basses. The 4 saddle vintage style bridge with threaded saddles means you can adjust and customise to make the Squier classic vibe 50s P Bass as playable as possible. The Vintage style tuners provide rock-solid stunning stability and accuracy and cap a beautifully recreated vintage bass.
