Fender Bass Guitars


At the very beginning of the 1950’s Leo Fender and associate George Fullerton released the first mass produced electric bass and the walls have been shaking ever since.  The “Precision Bass” of the early 50’s bears only a passing resemblance to what we recognize as a precision bass now a days.  The original “P-bass” had a non contoured telecaster like body (or broadcaster to be era correct) and a similarly telecaster influenced headstock shape.  Later this style would be reissued under the moniker “Telecaster Bass”.  The modern Procession bass has more contours and a split single coil pickup.   The Jazz Bass has more features with its double pickups and tapered neck.   Together these two bases are far and away the most popular bass guitars on the market and have been used on countless hit recordings throughout the decades.

      1972 Fender Telecaster Bass

      The Telecaster Bass rolled out in 1968 as essentially a reissue of the original Precision Bass from the early '50s. In 1972, Fender changed the Telecaster bass to include a humbucker and they also used the blonde finish – this is a great example of this model and a perfect instrument for a player.

      1976 Fender Precision Bass

      As the first production model bass guitar, the Fender Precision bass was revolutionary upon its introduction in 1951. This 1976 model holds to a tried and true formula of an ash body, maple neck and single pickup: simple, stylish and full of tone.
