Fender has released the Classic Series ’70s Precision Bass, paying homage to the P-bass of yesteryear. Made in Japan, the basses include era-specific features like the bass-side thumbrest, the ’70s-style large headstock logo and a bound neck with block inlays.
The bass has an alder body with a C-shaped maple neck and fretboard, which has a 9.5″ radius and 20 “vintage-styled” frets. Knurled control knobs, 70’s style “Fender”-stamped open tuners and a vintage four-saddle bridge round out the bass’s hardware.
The Fender Classic Series ‘70s Precision Bass is available now with an MSRP of $1,099. For more info, visit Fender’s website.
