      Best P-Bass

      By pouey

      from n.h.

      Comments about Fender '50s Precision Bass:

      Best P-Bass I;ve ever owned and I had them all from the 70's models to the Japanese to the U.S.A to the mexican.This Bass exceeds in sound quality and looks.My favorite feature are the reversed tuning pegs.I could do away w/the gold anodized p-guard for a white one but for now it's ok.The sound is what's most important.I play it through a Fender bassman 250/210 combo(Another nice product)and kiks proverbial butt!

      Solid Bass

      Comments about Fender '50s Precision Bass:

      I have been playing one of these for two years. This is a very well built bass. I too changed the pups to fenders and this thing growls. Been playing bass for thirty years, and this is a lot of bang for the buck. It does have that vintage feel.

      Great Instrument

      By stringbreaker22

      from Woodside, N.Y.

      Comments about Fender '50s Precision Bass:

      Just bought this. Even though it's made in Mexico, this P-bass is killer. I got the honey blonde version. Absolutely beautiful. I swapped out the pickups for Nordstrands and replaced the bridge with a Badass II, but that's just my preference. Very good bass.

      One Great P-Bass

      By Billy-Bob

      from So Cal

      Comments about Fender '50s Precision Bass:

      After going through several P-basses, this is the one I have been looking for. Excellent craftsmanship, great fit, finish, feel and tone. If you are looking for a real Fender P-bass, start with this one, you'll save yourself a lot of searching.

      Nirvana, Renunciation, & Love

      By cnorden

      from Moscow ID

      Comments about Fender '50s Precision Bass:

      An outstanding instrument, one of two P-basses I've settled in with after literally decades of hopping around with one bass after another. Beautifully solid instrument, great intonation, and killer deep tones, plus nice but fat highs. Only complaint is the tuners, which were very sloppy at the outset, very approximate instead of being precise, though they have settled in a bit after a year or so--the more you use them, the quicker they seem to settle in. Provided you're OK with fairly wide string spacing (I am), this is a beautiful, super high quality instrument, with unparalled tone. Same as other reviewers, I say Viva Mexico; this is as good a Fender bass as I'll ever want or need, better than many of the American versions I've played, both tone, precise tolerances on neck & pickup, finish, neck (especially!), and general workmanship.

      Nice Guitar

      Comments about Fender '50s Precision Bass:

      When I bought this guitar I did not expect it to be like the one I had twenty years ago, but was I shocked when I started playing this axe. It felt like an old friend had come home. This is the one I play when I hit the stage, forget about the bass with the battery, no worry about losing power in the middle of a proformance. The quaility on this bass was execellent, made in mexico or not. Don't hesitate to buy one of these if you are a little short on cash. I have the sunburst with gold metal pickguard, beautiful guitar. Great player and a nice sound.

      Excellent Bass

      By Rog-FdSLY

      from Northampton England

      Comments about Fender '50s Precision Bass:

      I really didn't believe this bass could even get close to my 70's American Precision, close, it blew it away, this is unquestionably the best Precision bass I have ever played

      Good Bass, Good Value

      By frankensteinvswolfman

      from baltimore, md

      Comments about Fender '50s Precision Bass:

      My '50s P Bass just arrived. The neck shape is wide and medium deep. The piece of maple has alot of grain character and a vintage amber tint to the thick poly finish. The body is medium-light in weight with a really nice glossy poly finish in which I can find no flaws. The stock hardware is sturdy and well installed. The reverse vintage tuners will take a minute to get used to I think but they are solid and tight. My only real gripe is the pickup. It sounds just like a P Bass should but it was a little cock-eyed coming right out of the box. I own a screwdriver so no big deal. Otherwise the factory set up is great; straight neck, low action, good intonation. The bass was almost still in tune. I don't think "for the money" should even need to be mentioned. This is a good sounding, good playing, good looking, well made traditional P Bass that just happens to be very reasonably priced. Don't be afraid of the "Made in Mexico" either. The '50s P Bass is a solid 4.5 out of 5.

      I'm in love!!!

      By Dylanthebassist

      from Hamilton, Ont

      Comments about Fender '50s Precision Bass:

      wow, this bass is an amazing value:) I just recently purchased one for christmas, I traded in my peavey 6 string for this bass and it was probably the best decision I have ever made. Not only does in look beautiful (honey blonde version), but it sounds even better. From it's high twangy sounds to it's low thunder sounds, this bass's tone is just awesome. I rated it 4.5 for features because it only has only two knobs, but despite only having these two knobs, you can make it sound just about any way you want it to. I am a slap bassist, but I also love my low end thumps, so this bass fits me perfectly. Beautiful sounding and looking bass for an amazing value!!! GO BUY ONE!!!:)
