Fender Precision Bass 1953

Fender Precision Bass 1953

Product Code:

$ 12,500.00

An excellent example of an early Precision bass! Introduced in '51, the P-bass was the first production model bass guitar and was the bass counterpart to the Telecaster. Throughout the '50s, the model evolved into the what we know today as the Precision bass, with a contoured body, split pickup, and a strat-like peghead. 1953 was the last year with the exclusively Tele-style slab body. This example of a '53 is in very good condition for its age and plays well. The pickup has been rewound, the saddles replaced, a ground wire added, and a extra hole through pickguard into body. The neck is dated "TG 12-9-52," and the body "Tad 2-5-53,".


  • Scale - 34"
  • Case - Modern hard case.
