Fender Custom Shop 1958 Precision Bass NOS Fiesta Red MBJS

Item: FE9216008318

Jason Smith is not only an acclaimed MasterBuilder, he’s also a bass player, and that becomes immediately evident when you hold this 1958 Precision Bass in your hands. This instrument feels alive, and when plucked, it gives back with vibrant acoustic resonance. The sustain is ridiculously long, and especially noticeable in the higher registers. This is like the most high tech bass you’ve ever played, but with vintage appointments, and it’s absolutely fabulous. The P-Bass pickup has been hand wound, so it’s uniquely individual, and this one is extremely expressive, transferring finger subtleties to the amplifier with finesse. The tone circuit is also unique, while having the tone completely rolled down, this bass stills sounds musical, and not muffled as you would expect. The back of the neck has been hand carved, and is most notable at the back of the headstock, where there are no sharp contours, only smooth, “weathered curves”. The fretboard edges have also been rounded for maximum comfort, and provide a worn in feel. The neck has been carved from baked Flamed Maple, the baking process ensures the absence of moisture, and total rigidity, which adds to the lively character of this instrument. Whether you’re slapping, or playing finger style, this instrument delivers on all fronts, and I highly recommend it to any serious player or collector. I give this bass two thumbs up, and feel honored to have played it. An inspirational achievement of craftsmanship, and a love of the 4 string bass, has been combined into the ultimate 1958 Precision Bass reproduction. Buy this one today. - Scott
