Fender Custom Shop '59 Precision Bass NOS
Special Order

The Definitive Fender Bass Guitar

Born in 1951, the Fender P Bass revolutionized music, making the gig far easier on the bassist than lugging an acoustic upright. In 1959 Fender achieved what many bassists would call "P Bass perfection." With the '59 Precision Bass NOS electric bass guitar, Fender Custom Shop has crafted the ultimate version of the 1959 Precision Bass. The 1959 Precision Bass NOS starts off with a spot-on replication of the '59 P Bass body, the classic split-coil pickup, and maple neck. Period-appropriate hardware, vintage-style reverse tuning machines, and a gorgeous nitrocellulose finish round out the premium features on the Fender 1959 Precision Bass Special NOS electric bass guitar.

The classic P Bass sound

You've heard the rich, thick thump of the '59 Precision Bass before - it's one of the most-recorded bass guitars in the world. Some people attribute the big sound to the tonewoods, and some to the iconic split single-coil pickup. One thing's for sure though - the '59 Precision Bass NOS has a versatile and powerful tone that's perfect for country, blues, rock, or just about any musical style.

Premium quartersawn maple neck

The Fender Custom Shop '59 Precision Bass NOS sports a quartersawn maple neck for top-notch tone and performance. Quartersawn wood is more dense and rigid than panel-sawn wood, meaning string vibrations will be transferred faster and more easily to the ash body. It also means you won't have to worry about the neck warping or twisting as the years go by.

Fender Custom Shop quality

Handmade in the USA, the Fender Custom Shop '59 Precision Bass NOS is crafted by the Custom Shop master luthiers to be as close as possible to an original '59 P Bass. And thanks to the expert care and attention every Custom Shop guitar or bass receives, you'll enjoy a lifetime of top-notch performance from the '59 Precision Bass NOS.
