With its great tonal warmth and easy playability, the Precision Bass is a longtime mainstay in all types of music that remains indispensable in the arsenals of bassists everywhere. 1964 was an especially great year for the Precision Bass, which provided the foundation groove on so many great Motown, Stax, surf and other cool records of that era.
The Fender Custom Shop celebrates that year’s model by recreating the '64 Precision with a beautiful heavy-relic Three-color Sunburst finish and the long sought-after "L Series" neck plate. With consummate cool, it evokes the great vibe, tone and feel of that musically vital year and its enduring classic sounds.
