Built in 1996, at the FujiGen plant in Japan this anniversary model is a wonderful example of this iconic bass guitar. The condition is excellent, pretty much perfect apart from a couple of tiny marks on the underside of the body as illustrated in the photographs and a tiny mark on the rear of the neck. It has been recently upgraded with Bare Knuckle ’65  split pick-ups to give it a real punchy sound. These online  these are approximately £120. It plays brilliantly. Built in Japan Fender guitars are generally regarded as comparable with USA models.

It comes with a Fender Gig bag

It can be shipped to any UK mainland address for £17

From its introduction in 1951, the Precision bass transformed the world of bass playing with its unique look, feel and tone. The Bare Knuckle P Bass range captures that ground breaking tone in both original ‘Tele’ bass single coil and later humbucking split coil designs.


Grey fibre board flat work, non bevelled Alnico V magnets and a lighter wind of 42AWG plain enamel wire characterise this mid ’60s inspired split coil set. A brighter high-end but equally solid bottom-end make the ’65 Split Coil P perfect for rosewood board P basses. Compared to the ’58 Split Coil P, the mids are a little hollower with a woodier tone while the bottom-end remains full and warm. The two coils are wired in series for full hum cancelling and feature black and white cloth ‘push back’ hookup.

  • Output: Vintage
