More about American Vintage '58 Precision Bass®

Der American Vintage ’58 Precision Bass erinnert an das erste Modelljahr des Basses, mit dem alles begann – und zwar im todschicken Finish in Three-Color Sunburst. Diese klassische Kombination gehört jetzt schon seit Langem zur Fender Tradition. Der ’58 American Vintage Precision Bass wartet dabei mit weiteren authentischen Ausstattungsmerkmalen auf, etwa einem leichtgewichtigen Korpus aus Erle (Esche beim Modell in White Blonde), einem fetten, „C“-förmigen Ahornhals mit 20 Bünden im Vintage-Style und schwarzen Bundmarkierungen, einem Gold-anodisierten Aluminium-Pickguard mit Lackfinish sowie einem neuen, Split Single-Coil Tonabnehmer. Weitere Highlights sind die weiter unten angebrachte Fingerauflage, der Steg im Vintage-Style mit „Barrel“ Gewinde-Stegeinlagen, gerändelte, verchromte Flat-Top-Regler, "Reverse" Stimmmechaniken sowie verchromte Abdeckungen für Tonabnehmer und Steg und vieles mehr. Erhältlich in Three-Color Sunburst, White Blonde und Black.

A Superb Investment

I bought the American made '57 Precision re-issue (2-tone tobacco sunburst finish) to do some digitial recording in 2001. It's identical to the '58 presented here, though the '58 is a 3-tone sunburst. For performing and recording, this bass lays down a fat, wide bass track that is incredibly satisfying. I have received many compliments on its look and sound over the many years I've owned it. The neck has no "dead spots" and the vintage pick-ups are the holy grail. I bought my first Fender bass in 1977, a then-new Jazz Bass that I still own. That bass is without question the best investment of any kind I ever made (besides my wife and children), and it remains my first love. The '57 re-issue is an exciting mistress.

I have tried 4 different version of this product. Unfortunately, Fender has really dropped the ball on this one. It is just an American style bass with the typical American bass sound. Nothing special about this bass at all except for the design. What Fender has actually done is given you the design of a 58 Precision without the sound, but with the high price.

Nice Upgrade to the American Vintage Series!

This is a wonderful new addition to the new American Vintage Series. Overall, it hits the mark on the classic Fender PBass design. The tone is fantastic. Very tight and true with a great mid range and sustain on lower notes. Fits all styles of music and sounds fantastic with the Fender Flats that are provided too. Well worth the money.

The '58 Precision Bass Re-Issue is a timeless classic. The Fender Musical Instrument Company has out done itself utilizing current manufacturing technologies while incorporating the finest craftsmen to bring us a truly quality instrument that will, most certainly, raise the bar, for the Fender classic market and the high quality demands of its player/customers!!!
