NAMM '11 - Fender 60th Anniversary P Bass
January 17, 2011
PG's Rebecca Dirks is On Location at the 2011 NAMM Show where she visits the Fender booth. In this segment, we get to see and hear about the 60th Anniversary P Bass. Introduced in 1951, the Precision Bass was the world's first successful solid-body electric bass guitar; an instrument that revolutionized popular music so thoroughly that it even created a new kind of musician—the electric bassist. Sixty years later it is still the first word in electric bass and an essential and indispensable instrument in the hands of bass players worldwide. The 60th Anniversary Precision Bass embodies six decades of Fender bass legacy in a collectible U.S.-made instrument. Features include an ash body with Blackguard Blonde thin-skin lacquer finish, maple neck and fretboard with modern 9.5" radius and medium jumbo frets, vintage Precision Bass split single-coil pickup, black pickguard, high-mass vintage bridge, knurled control knobs, modern tuners, commemorative neckplate and Fender/SKB molded case.
