A CHERISHED FAVORITE
Looking like it just stepped out of a DeLorean time machine, the limited-edition ’51 Telecaster PJ Bass updates a classic design with thunderous modern tone and enhanced feel. The authentic style extends from the distinctive single-ply black pickguard to the dual-concentric volume knobs and vintage spaghetti logo on the headstock—original-era touches brought into the present. It’s punchy, growling, seismic and like nothing you’ve heard or seen before.
- Slab ash ’51 P Bass body with single-ply black pickguard; lacquer finish
- Telecaster bass maple neck with American Vintage “ ’63 P Bass” profile; 9.5”-radius fingerboard
- Custom Shop ’60s Jazz Bass single-coil bridge pickup; Custom Shop ‘60s P Bass split-coil middle pickup
- HiMass Vintage bridge; vintage-style “spaghetti” Fender logo
- Includes hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity
ASH SLAB BODY
A unique touch, this ash slab body features vintage radii—a classic touch from the original era of Fender.
The nitrocellulose lacquer finish lets the body breathe with its true tonal character and also ages and wears in a distinctively personal way.
AMERICAN VINTAGE “ ’63 P BASS” PROFILE
A blast from the past, the ’63 P Bass profile is ideal for funky, thumb-over playing and the 9.5”-radius fingerboard makes for fast, low action.
CUSTOM SHOP PICKUPS
This Custom Shop PJ pickup combination gives you the best of both worlds—a growling Jazz Bass bridge pickup and seismic P Bass middle pickup.
HIMASS VINTAGE BRIDGE
This strings-thru-body bridge has a lot of metal, which means it has a lot of mass for rock-solid sustain, intonation and tuning stability.
CONCENTRIC VOLUME CONTROLS
In a classic touch from the ‘60s, these volume controls are “stacked” concentrically, placing both volume controls on one potentiometer.
