Fender American Vintage II 1960 Precision Bass 3 Tone Sunburst

Fender American Vintage II 1960 Precision Bass 3 Tone Sunburst – The Fender® American Vintage II series presents a remarkably accurate take on the revolutionary designs that altered the course of musical history. Built with period-accurate bodies, necks and hardware, premium finishes and meticulously voiced, year-specific pickups, each instrument captures the essence of authentic Fender craftsmanship and tone.

The late ’50s to the early ’60s was a watershed period in the development of the Precision Bass®, a time of transition that would see the introduction of many new appointments that would become synonymous with the P-Bass®. By 1960, the design of the P-bass had eclipsed the earlier cues culled from the Telecaster® – now the P-bass had a Strat®-style headstock shape, comfort-contours, pickguard mounted electronics and 4-saddle bridge. Adorned in 3-Colour Sunburst and topped with a 4-ply tortoiseshell pickguard, the 1960 Precision Bass represented a more refined, enduring aesthetic for the model.

The instruments in the American Vintage II series are direct descendants of the original Fenders: designed for players with a fine appreciation for vintage Fender tone and feel and built with unmatched quality, down to the last screw. These are Fender electrics in their purest form: Fender American Vintage II, the stuff of legends.

Powerful punch from a Precision Bass

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.

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.
