When it comes to recreating iconic vintage instruments of the past, the Fender Custom Shop are at the forefront of the industry. Taking advantage of today's modern machinery, tech, and materials, they produce some of the finest top-shelf guitars and basses in the business that look, sound and feel as if they were played for half a century or more, but actually just came right off the factory setup bench. Here, we have the Fender Custom Shop '59 Precision Bass.
Originally introduced in 1951, the Fender P (Precision) bass changed the world of modern music and has continued to remain a staple among bassists of all genres. This Fender Custom Shop creation is based off of a '59 model, donning spec's and loads of character from that late 50's, early 60's era. The two-piece alder body joins the quarter sawn maple neck with an oval "C" profile with a traditional 4-bolt neck plate. Atop the neck sits a quarter sawn maple fingerboard with a 7.25" radius, decorated with micarta black dot inlays. Twenty medium jumbo frets are all easily accessible, and comfortable to play as one of the more common options used on Fender instruments. The 59-62 P-Bass pickups are thick, punchy, and provide plenty of clarity and sustain thanks to the body and neck's premium construction and wood choices.
What truly makes this Fender Custom Shop '59 Precision Bass special, though, is its heavy relic treatment. Factory aged with painstaking attention to detail, one might mistake this bass for an original at first glance or first trip up and down the neck. The body's thin, gloss Nitrocellulose lacquer finish has been worn in all the right spots as if it had traveled all over the world for years, played each and every night. The wear extends to the neck and fingerboard, where it also enhances the playing experience by giving this bass an actual vintage feel. To round it out, the hardware and pickups have also been relic'd to fully deliver the vintage vibe.
This Fender Custom Shop '59 Precision Bass Heavy Relic comes with a tweed Fender Custom Shop hardshell case, and all your favorite Custom Shop goodies inside. If you're looking for a bass that plays, looks, and sounds like a historic instrument, but with all the advantages of being brand new, then this P-Bass checks all of the right boxes.
