A technological revolution that changed the face of music as we know it, the Precision Bass is quite possibly the most innovative instrument ever unleashed on the world. The 1961 Precision Bass unites the sound and style of the past with modern playability, a feat that could only be accomplished by the Artisans of the Fender Custom Shop.

There’s no mistaking the punchy sound of a split-coil P Bass pickup, especially one patterned after a ’61 pickup and hand-wound by the Custom Shop. The two-piece alder body—with a Closet Classic nitrocellulose lacquer finish—is hand-selected for its light weight and strong grain, as is the tinted quartersawn maple neck with an “Oval C”-shaped profile.

Other astonishing features include a black-bound round-lam 7.25”-radius Indian Rosewood fingerboard, 20 medium jumbo frets, vintage wiring and control scheme, nitrocellulose tortoiseshell pickguard, vintage-style bridge and tuning machines, bone nut and round string tree. Include deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
