OVERVIEW

A Custom Shop re-creation of the vintage '59.

Meticulously built to replicate the original '59 P Bass in every detail. 1959 was a transitional year for the P Bass. Rosewood fretboards replaced the one-piece maple neck for the first time, and the neck features the precise C-shaped profile from that year. This model also has the ash body that was used for the vintage blonde finish models of that year. One especially showy feature in '59 was the gold anodized pickguard and it is used on this replica. As a Time Machine Relic, it has been specially treated to show the cosmetic effects of wear and aging that would naturally be found on a well-used '59 bass. Comes with a tweed hardshell case, vintage strap, and polishing cloth.

FEATURES
  • Time Machine Series
  • Vintage blonde with premium ash body
  • Nitrocellulose lacquer finish
  • Maple C-shaped neck
  • Rosewood fingerboard with 20 frets and 7-1/4" radius

Best P-Bass I've played

By Ron-gc-4Y

from Orange County, California

See all my reviews

I've been playing American made Fender basses for over 25 years and this '59 reissue Custom Shop is the best playing P-Bass I've had the pleasure of owning. This is my first Custom Shop bass, and I ordered it online, sight unseen, based on a friend's recommendation. I was wondering whether it really would be all that noticeably better than my other regular production American Made Fender basses. It was. If you are looking for that ultimate P-Bass with classic vintage tone and flawless fit and finish, and you can afford to pay twice what an American Vintage or three times what an American Standard costs, then this is your bass. Perfection isn't cheap but if you have the means you'll appreciate the more precise fit and finish. I don't know now if I could ever go back to buying a "regular" Fender again, I'd rather save up for another one of these.
