Crafting the American Original ‘60s Precision Bass

Alder has been used to craft the iconic shape of the American Original ‘60s Precision Bass, with its distinctive double cutaway allowing for easy reach of the higher frets.

Attached to the body, you’ll find a Maple neck with a thick “1963 C” shape profile which gives you a substantial yet comfortable grip with your fretting hand.

A round-laminated Rosewood fretboard with vintage tall frets gives you that classic playing feel while its 9.5” radius is more modern and familiar.

The body is finished in a gloss nitrocellulose lacquer which allows the P bass to breathe with a natural resonance with the lacquer ageing in an aesthetically pleasing way over time too.

Vintage-Style Hardware and Electronics
