Looks Like You've Been on the Road... or Have You?Here's how you get a P-Bass that looks like this one: tour with it for years and years, play the tar out of it, and subject it to the rigors of the road (but not in an abusive sort of way). Or, you can just grab this very cool Road Worn '50s Precision Bass! Yep, it's brand spankin' new, but you'd swear it's been "well loved" and treated to a life on the touring trail. This bass plays great, thanks to its comfortable and classic maple neck. It sounds like a million bucks, thanks to its split-coil pickup. Rock-solid hardware keeps it in stage-ready tune. Now, you don't have to be a road warrior to play like one!
The bass that changed music! Did you know that Leo Fender (yes, that Leo Fender) unleashed the Precision Bass on the world way back in 1951? Yep, and the world hasn't been the same since. The really cool thing about the P-Bass is how Fender got it right the first time... the superbly balanced body, the split single-coil pickup, the fast and easy playing maple neck, and the elegantly simple (and rock-solid) hardware combine to give you the perfect package of tone, playability, and legendary looks. Lefties, don't settle for less!
The list of iconic Precision Bass players is absolutely staggering, but suffice it to say that if this bass was/is the tonal tool of choice for the likes ofJames Jamerson, John Entwistle, Carol Kaye, Kim Deal, Roger Waters, Bernard Edwards, and John Paul Jones, then you know you're gonna love it - no matter what style (or styles) you play.
