Fender Bass

Fender Bass • this painting is sold

The Fender Precision Bass (sometimes shortened to the "P-Bass") is an electric bass guitar, and was the first widely-available model of the instrument. It was designed by Leo Fender and brought to market in 1951.

The original Precision Bass of 1951 was essentially a bass counterpart to the six-string Telecaster and shared several of its design features--the main difference being its then-radical double cutaway body. In 1953 the Precision was restyled with the edges contoured for comfort and in 1957 the original single-coil pickup was replaced with a new split-coil pickup with staggered polepieces, connected in a humbucking mode.

This is a painting of my friend Fred's Fender Precision Bass.
