4-string Bass Guitar with Alder Body, Maple Neck, Rosewood Fingerboard, and 1 Split-coil Pickup – 2-tone Sunburst

Channel Fender History Circa 1960

Musical history buffs and musicians alike can’t stop talking about the American Vintage II Series around our campus. Take the American Vintage II 1960 Precision Bass, for instance. On its period-accurate body, you’ll find many of the heralded achievements forged in the late ’50s and early ’60s over at Fender. Instead of the earlier Telecaster-like appointments found on earlier P Basses, you’ll find a Strat-like headstock, more comfortably curved body contours, and a modern-made Pure Vintage ’60 Split-Coil P Bass pickup. The alder body, hard-rock maple neck, and rosewood fingerboard polish this vintage time-machine off with the right concoction to supply serious ’60s-inspired bass tones.

American Vintage II good to be true

Just a cursory glance at the American Vintage II 1960 Precision Bass and you might mistake it for the real thing. Fender made certain to outfit this bass with hardware like a 4-saddle bridge, pickguard-mounted electronics, and the classic “C”-shaped neck with 7.25-inch fingerboard radius. While these details deliver the familiar look, the comfortably contoured alder body and Pure Vintage ’60 Split-Coil P-Bass pickup serve up the quintessential tone this classic hit-machine is known for.

Powerful punch from a Precision Bass

The powerful aesthetic of the American Vintage II 1960 P Bass is only matched by the electronics found inside. Filtered through modern-day technical mastery, the Pure Vintage ’60 Split-Coil P Bass pickup delivers tone that’ll really knock your socks off. A master tone and a master volume knob accompany the pickup, allowing you to fine-tune your sound. With this P Bass in hand, you’ll find all the punch, glory, and guts of the original model — plus the precision of modern-day Fender craftsmanship.
