60th Anniversary P Bass Notes & Trivia: 1960

After nearly a decade as the only bass in the Fender line, the Precision is joined by a new deluxe model bass guitar with dual pickups, a thinner neck and an offset waist. Together, both models would rule the electric bass world from this year onward with seeming impunity, as indeed they continue to do to this day. What is the name of the Precision’s 1960 sibling?

Answer: The Jazz Bass, of course.
