Fender invented the Electric Bass in 1951 in response to requests from musicians for a louder, easier-to-handle bass. This new instrument was named the Precision Bass. Unlike its predecessor the acoustic stand-up bass, the P-Bass had frets, which allowed bassists to play with "precision." Needless to say, a "new playing sensation" was born and the sound of popular music changed forever. The American Vintage '57 and '62 Precision Basses pay tribute to the originals with accurate detailing from their respective vintages.
