Comments about Fender Road Worn '50s Precision Bass:

I have played bass for 38 years and played professional and recorded professional. Let me do my review of the Fender road worn P-bass. First is excellent quality, yes MIM but up there with the American Made. These are not mass produced basses- I would call them "batch produced". I love the look - looks just like a 50 year old '57 P-Bass - scars and all. Second - the split P-bass Fender pickup is aged to match - I really like the tone and sound from this bass - I don't see the need to change the pickup. If you are not getting enough low end then time to change your amp. The big main reason to buy this bass is the neck - it duplicates the neck on a '57 P-Bass and is so smooooth - its like a well broken in baseball mitt. I known guys who bought this bass just to get the neck. This bass is probally the best bass for the buck Fender sells. This will be the one you reach for time and time again -- you will see.

Comments about Fender Road Worn '50s Precision Bass:

The closest to pre-CBS that regular-people money can buy. The finish kept me away for years - nonstarter. I did some reading and took a chance - and now I'm mental over this great bass.

    Comments about Fender Road Worn '50s Precision Bass:

    I've had a Fender Bass for most of my life. My mose recent giging bass has been a Fender 59 reissue P-Bass That I love. When I first saw the road worn P-Bass I liked it because Im alittle road worn myself. I bought the Fiesta Red or as my frends call it my "Pink" bass. At first thinking that I would use this as a back up it has become my main bass. I roll the tone knob back about halfway and get James Jamerson type tones. I almost always upgrade electronics (Pick-Ups, Pots, ect) in a MIM or MIJ bass and I still may in this one but so far Im running it stock with flat wounds and Im Happy with the result. Buy the "Pink" one, Save the TaTa's!

    50s road worn

    Comments about Fender Road Worn '50s Precision Bass:

    honestly i dont really care for the "wear" to much on the bass but it plays soooo well i had to pick one up. granted the wear is tastefully done, not like an extreme relic. ill probably wear it more anyway. i a,b'd a lot of fender p bass's @ my local guitar store and this one came out on top so i ordered it.best sounding bass for the money!i put quality down to a 3.5 bc the tuners which i love the style were extremely stiff when i received the bass, i guess they need a little broken in.

    don't be fooled by MIM..

    By bottommasterbass

    from San Fransisco

    Comments about Fender Road Worn '50s Precision Bass:

    Like the other reviewers I was a little put off by the "road wear" and the price! But after an afternoon playing Custom shops I picked up a MIM Fiesta Red P bass...after about 10 minutes through an 810 I was paying for the bass! The pups are weak, although you can make them sound fine with the help of an SVT or Fliptop. THe neck does feel wonderfull, the finish is really nice, the aging looks great, all in all a great P bass.Resale value seems low on these basses though.

    Now I understand!!

    Comments about Fender Road Worn '50s Precision Bass:

    My only issue is with the cheap gig bag. I guess it will keep the dust off of it.
    I now understand now why the P-bass is a legend. Great quality. Very solid bass.
    This bass plays and sounds so good that I had no choice but to give it a 10!

    Road Worn P-Bass lives up to it....almost.

    Comments about Fender Road Worn '50s Precision Bass:

    I purchased a 2-tone sunburst P-Bass in a store. When I first saw the ad for this model I wasn't really all that interested. However, when I played it I was shocked by it's quality. It plays great and they use good wood and the finish is done nicely. But, the electronics lack as they are aged stock Mexican standard pickups and cheesy wiring. So I purchased a Duncan Antiquity PU, rewired it with vintage cloth wire and now it kicks. I sunk about another 200 bucks into it to make it great so I think Fender should bring the price down 200 at least or, start putting American vintage wiring and PU's in them. Other than that. I'm REALLY happy!

    Comments about Fender Road Worn '50s Precision Bass:

    I tried this bass out along with the road worn jazz bass, and I have to say that the jazz bass was much better,(more tone selection and better feeling neck), but the p-bass sounds okay. If you want my advice, save up a hundred bucks more and go jazz bass.

      Comments about Fender Road Worn '50s Precision Bass:

      This was a great surprise as a gift from my wife, she new that i had been eyeing it for sometime. The road worn is not severe or overdone as if a gorilla had played it. The relicing is appropriate the worn finish has a wonderful wood look and it glows with warmth. The chunky neck feels very comfortable and broken in very smooth. The pickups are very well defined and powerful the tone tapers consistently for bright and very dark. As usual i did some adjustments to the height of the pickups for my own personal taste, intonation was on the spot. Overall the bass is very light and feels like an old friend in your hands.

        Comments about Fender Road Worn '50s Precision Bass:

        Guitar was ready to play right out of the box. Neck, while a PBass neck, plays light silk. Straight from the top to the bottom frets. Pickups were great. I usually want a Jass neck and usually put upgraded pickups in everything I buy.. This neck is a pbass wide neck, but it's surprising thin, easy to play, fits your hand like a glove. The pickups can get thick bass or slap and thump bass. A jazz bass player would love this neck and guitar. After decades of music, I can't put this bass down. It's not just something to do, it makes music fun again. Wow.Total surprise
