Description

The late '50s and early '60s was a turning point in the development of the Precision Bass - a transitional period that would see usher in many new appointments that would become hallmarks of the P-Bass. By 1960, the P-Bass had abandoned the design cues it borrowed from the Telecaster, now featuring a Strat-style headstock shape, a comfortable carved body, pickguard-mounted electronics, and a 4-saddle bridge. With it's gorgeous 3-Colour Sunburst finish and 4-ply tortoiseshell pickguard, the 1960 Precision Bass represented a more sophisticated, timeless style for this model.

Recreating the classic tone and feel of the original, the American Vintage II 1954 Precision Bass features a 1960 "C"-shaped Hard Rock Maple neck with a 20-fret, 7.25"-radius Slab Rosewood fretboard, a Pure Vintage 4-saddle bridge with threaded steel saddles, reverse open-gear machine heads, and a period-accurate finger rest. Driven by a specially voiced '60 Split-Coil Precision Bass pickup, the American Vintage II Precision Bass delivers the classic thumping tone that made it a time-honored classic.

The instruments in the American Vintage II collection are direct relatives of the original Fenders - designed for players who greatly appreciate vintage Fender tone and performance constructed with unparalleled quality, down to the last screw. The instruments in the American Vintage II collection are Fender in their purest form - the stuff of legends.
