The Classic Series '50s Precision Bass Lacquer delivers the distinctive 1950s-era look, sound and vibe of those first Fender basses, with vintage style and an authentic nitrocellulose lacquer finish on its alder body.

For bassists who prize original-era Precision Bass sound and style, the Classic Series ’50s Precision Bass Lacquer is a must-have instrument. Throughout the 1950s, the Precision Bass was the only Fender bass, and this model gives you the design from later that decade that has been the world’s most recognized electric bass guitar form ever since. Delivering powerful punch and great value, this is a great evocation of a profoundly influential instrument, with authentic touches including a gold anodized pickguard, reverse tuners, and a gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish.

Pure and simple, this instrument features classic vintage styling that evokes and honors the timeless Fender basses that came before it in the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s. From the rear strap button to the top of the headstock, it’s the very essence of classic vintage Fender bass design. A major part of the vintage-style sound, look and appeal of this bass is its vintage-style pickups, which deliver pure bass tone, power and performance evoking the great Fender basses of the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s. Nitrocellulose lacquer is one of the great original-era Fender electric guitar finishes, and is still used today on select instruments. Thin, porous and delicate, it’s a premium finish prized for sonic qualities that let body woods breathe with their true tonal character, and for an appearance that ages and wears in a distinctive way appealing to many players.

      Comments about Fender Classic Series '50S Precision Bass Lacquer:

      I bought this bass to utilize in a couple of gigs I play and the guitar was setup and played great right out of the box. The intonation was awesome, didn't have to tweak the neck, although I would have preferred the truss rod adjustment at the head of the guitar, the action and the pole position was great.
      The only thing I did was putting a set of flats on it, because flats and passive p-basses is magic.
      Good buy with the case.

      Comments about Fender Classic Series '50S Precision Bass Lacquer:

      Excellent bass! This bass is just as good, if not better, than my American Standard P-bass. No need to change anything on it, as some musicians tend to do with MIM Fenders. Solid pick up, bridge, and neck. Reverse tuning machines are a little different, but no issues. Arrived out of the box with an excellent setup. Tweed case is a bonus too! Just a great quality instrument for the price.
