OVERVIEW

Simplicity equals perfection.

The Fender Precision Bass from 1959 is among the most treasured electric basses in history. It being the first year the rosewood fingerboard was introduced on the quarter-sawn maple neck, this faithful reissue includes that feature. This alder body beauty has a nitrocellulose lacquer finish, which has additionally received the relic treatment, giving the instrument the look and vibe of a well-loved companion.

The essential 1959 appointments are all there; the ashtray bridge cover over the vintage bridge, the pickup cover and the grab bar. The gold pickguard, split single coil pickup, single volume and tone knobs and the open-geared tuning pegs will excite a primal attraction in any bassist who appreciates the simple perfection of the 1959 design.

      Comments about Fender Custom Shop 1959 P Bass Relic Guitar:

      In the sense of a typical Fender bass, the notes are nearly dead at the 6th and 7th frets on the G string. Mind you, this bass does come with new Fender Round Wound strings and that can't be the issue. The bass is visually well made, has a "slab" rosewood fingerboard that is sought-after in a bass like this. Sounds like a P-bass through the amp, light weight and resonant. Perhaps a Master Built Fender craftsman could get it right?
