About Fender Precision Bass

When you think of an electric bass guitar, there is one timeless shape and brand that often comes to mind, and one that revolutionized music forever. That instrument is the Fender Precision Bass. After making its debut in 1951, popular music was never the same again. The instrument is still a great choice even today thanks to the classic curves and timeless sound. Sporting a combination of single coil and humbucker pickups, one of each in fact, the Fender Precision Bass can switch between an aggressive mid-heavy sound to deep silky smooth tones easily. The Fender American Standard Precision Bass is the most commonly sought after version, but thanks to the overwhelming popularity of the instrument, there are a number of signature and limited edition models too. Thanks to the vast inventory on eBay, you can often find some of these rarer models, such as the Fender 60th Anniversary Precision Bass, which features a number of tweaks and upgrades on the original 1952 model, while retaining the classic sound and shape.
