An Homage to Leo Fender’s Bold, Revolutionary P Bass
A loving homage to the electric bass guitar that started it all, the limited-edition 75th Anniversary Precision Bass evokes the sound and vibe of Leo Fender’s original bold, revolutionary design. Crafted from a balanced-sounding chunk of alder, this magnificent instrument serves up punchy P Bass perfection by the truckload, courtesy of a Vintera ’50s split single-coil Precision Bass pickup. And It’s a joy to play, by virtue of its satin-finished Modern “C” neck and 9.5-inch-radius maple fingerboard. The 75th Anniversary P Bass flaunts rock-solid standard open-gear tuning machines and a 4-saddle standard bridge, while a light-catching gloss polyester finish and matching headstock yield head-turning looks. An exclusive engraved 75th anniversary neck plate rounds out this collectible, limited-edition P Bass.
Built for comfort and performance
Ask any player who has spent time with a Precision Bass, and you’ll hear a string of praises — these basses are some of the most playable on the planet. The 75th Anniversary Precision Bass takes this comfortable playability to an even higher level with a smooth, satiny Modern “C”-shaped neck. Tailor-made for contemporary playing styles, this neck includes a comfortable 1.625-inch bone nut, capped by a 9.5-inch-radius maple fingerboard and 20 medium-jumbo frets. The 75th Anniversary P Bass’s neck sits beautifully in the hands and features a touch-and-response dynamic that bassists here at Sweetwater wholeheartedly appreciate.
Tim Shaw-designed pickup delivers classic P Bass tones
The Fender 75th Anniversary Precision Bass comes armed with a Tim Shaw-designed split single-coil pickup. This pup boasts an Alnico V magnet, Formvar-coated wire, and staggered beveled pole pieces — everything you need to reproduce the fat low end, punchy midrange, and toothy treble that made the original P Bass so versatile. Jazz, funk, rock — this bass can cover it all with the kind of tonal styling that leaves you and your audience satisfied.
Teeming with classic P Bass vibe
Leo Fender introduced the Precision Bass back in the 1951, and its classic body shape and comfortable neck continue to give its decedents excellent playability and a distinctive look. Players from all genres have embraced the P Bass, and it continues to be a favorite in the studio and on stages everywhere. As with so many of Fender’s original designs, the man got the essence of a great instrument right the first time. And seven decades later, the 75th Anniversary Precision Bass stands as a sterling example.
