Fender American Vintage II 1954 Precision Bass Vintage Blonde
We don’t tell Fender how to do their business, but several people have played this one and said (we paraphrase), “If Fender made basses like this again, they could be a great little company.” We agree! The American Vintage II series are built to be the most period accurate reissues Fender has offered (excluding Custom Shop, of course). Designed for players with an appreciation for vintage Fenders and built with a respect for the classics.
Featuring an Ash body with a vintage blonde nitro finish, a Pure Vintage 1954 single-coil pickups and a vintage '54 "C"-shaped maple neck mated with a 7.25" radius fingerboard with white pearloid inlays — the American Vintage II 1954 "P" bass reproduces the quintessential tone and feel of the original predecessor. Other vintage-accurate appointments include a Pure-Vintage 2-saddle with fiber saddles bridge cover and reverse open-gear tuning machines.
During the late '50s and early '60s, the popularity of Fender Musical Instruments flourished, and by 1954 the Precision bass evolved to new heights and included striking new features and resemblances from the telecaster and newly released Stratocaster. A hardshell case is included.
