For players who want the style and sound of Fender’s golden era, we created the Vintera ’50s P-Bass. Equipped with the coveted features that defined the decade including period-accurate neck profile and playing feel, along with a re-voiced pickup this bass has all of the punchy tone that made the P Bass famous.
For authentic, original-era tone we re-voiced the single split-coil P Bass pickup to sound more like the original. Seismic and punchy, it has the tone that made the P Bass¨ one of the most popular electric basses. The 50s P Bass C-shaped neck has a 7.25″-radius fingerboard with 20 vintage-style frets for classic playing feel. A vintage-style, 4-saddle bridge with threaded saddles and vintage-style tuning machines provide original-era aesthetics, rock-solid performance and tuning stability. Other features include an anodized aluminum pickguard, chrome hardware and 4-bolt neck plate. Includes a deluxe gig bag.
