1951 was the year that saw the debut of a revolutionary new musical instrument - the Fender Precision Bass. The world’s first commercially successful solidbody electric bass guitar, it quickly supplanted unwieldy upright basses in increasingly smaller and louder groups, and it had a profound effect on the sound of popular music. It was the first word in electric bass, and has remained so ever since with elegant simplicity and remarkable durability. Limited to just 15 models worldwide.
The Fender Custom Shop honours the original version of the model with the Limited 1951 Closet Classic Precision Bass in Nocaster Blonde.
