Vintage Guitar Scene: 1957 Fender Precision Bass

1957 Fender Precision Bass – 2 Tone Sunburst (Serial Number 023926)

This is a very early example of this style of P bass which is the classic version of this iconic instrument. P basses can be heard on more hit records than any other model bass guitar. This version has the maple fingerboard, I also have a 1964 L series P bass which sounds slightly more ‘clunky’ than the ’57.
