VINTAGE STYLE FOR THE MODERN ERA
For players who want the style and sound of Fenderâ€™s golden era, we created the Vintera â€˜50s Precision Bass. Equipped with the coveted features that defined the decadeâ€”including period-accurate neck profile and playing feel, along with a re-voiced pickupâ€”this bass has all of the punchy tone that made the P BassÂ® famous.
For authentic, original-era tone we re-voiced the single split-coil P Bass pickup to sound more like the original. Seismic and punchy, it has the tone that made the P Bass one of the most popular electric basses. The â€œVintage Câ€-shaped neck has a 7.25â€-radius fingerboard with 20 vintage-style frets for classic playing feel. A vintage-style, 4-saddle bridge with threaded saddles and vintage-style tuning machines provide original-era aesthetics, rock-solid performance and tuning stability. Other features include an anodized aluminum pickguard, chrome hardware and 4-bolt neck plate. Includes a deluxe gig bag.

ALDER OR ASH BODY
Alderâ€™s tone is balanced with equal doses of lows, mids and highs; ash features chiming highs, well-defined midrange and strong low end. Both are classic Fender tone woods.
â€œVINTAGE Câ€ NECK PROFILE
Remarkably comfortable, the â€œVintage C”-shaped neck profile is sculpted for a vintage-style playing feelâ€”thinner at the first fret, thicker at the twelfth.
REVOICED 50S P BASS PICKUP
We revoiced the pickup to be more â€˜50s-accurate. Itâ€™s full of the punchy, rumbling tone that made Fender famous.
Hosting 20 vintage-style frets, the 7.25â€-radius fingerboard provides the comfortable playing feel of a vintage instrument.
VINTAGE-STYLE 4-SADDLE BRIDGE
Hosting 4 threaded saddles for period-correct aesthetics, this bridge offers solid intonation and action adjustment.
ANODIZED ALUMINUM PICKGUARD
