From James Jamerson to Paul Somonon of The Clash, the Fender Precision Bass has historically transcended genres and decades alike, and this 1978 model is as good as they get. Sporting a gorgeous sunburst finish and a sleek black pickguard, paired with a maple neck and fretboard with black dot inlays to match, this bass looks just as good as it plays. It’s been kept in impeccable condition over the decades, showing minimal signs of use, and includes the original pickup cover and bridge cover. Its original pickup and circuitry allow this bass to access the continuum of “P” bass tones that have revolutionized the foundation of modern music. Currently equipped with flat wound strings, this bass plays effortlessly. Wether you’re looking for full bodied thump or driving picked tones, this Fender 1978 Precision Bass can get the job done with ease.
