A selection of Fender Precision Bass guitars listed for sale this week. The Precision Bass is more commonly known as the Fender P bass. First introduced in 1951 (*) – the Precision Bass was necessary in replacing the acoustic bass guitars as the need for more volume grew. The key design features of the Precision Bass haven’t changed much over the years. Aside from some initial tweeks in the early years – you’d be hard pushed to find a difference between a 1961 model compared to a 2021 version. As the old saying goes – if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it!
The P bass features a distinctive thick body and a fairly chunky neck. It’s aimed at the musician looking for full-on power – well known for it’s classic old school bass sound. It’s list of famous players is impresive – from the deep melodies of Motown played by James Jamerson to hard core rock bass riffs in the hands of Iron Maiden’s Steve Harris and Nate Mendel from the Foo Fighters
