Since its birth in 1951, the Fender Precision Bass guitar has redefined popular music and continues to in the hands of contemporary artists worldwide. The 60th Anniversary Precision Bass is no exception! It starts with an ash body like its 1951 counterpart, with a maple neck and fretboard with a modern 9-1/2" radius and medium-jumbo frets. From the seismic boom of its lowest E to the ringing clarity of its highest E flat, the 60th Anniversary Precision Bass gets its rich depth, definition, and dynamics from a vintage Precision Bass split single-coil pickup. Its knurled-chrome volume and tone controls are elegant in their simplicity and solidly reliable in their effect on the sound. To further distinguish it as a special instrument created for the occasion, the 60th Anniversary Precision Bass bears a commemorative chrome neck plate honoring six decades of enduring Fender legacy. Finishing touches on this collectible bass include a high-mass vintage bridge, modern tuners, Blackguard Blonde thin-skin lacquer finish, and Fender/SKB molded case.
