It's a classic. The vintage style split single coil pickup in this bass truly glows with character. Modified to mimic the original Precision Bass pickups of the '50s, its voicing is sweet, crisp, and punchy. It's the type of pickup which made the P Bass such an icon amongst bass players – its sound is unmistakable. You'll find that your basslines are clear and twangy, with a beautiful, vintage-style vibrance.
Pure flexibility. This pickup is incredibly responsive to your settings - you can mould its sound to suit your taste. The master tone and volume knobs give you exceptional control over the sound you produce with the split single coil, so you can always play with the tone you want. Once you've heard this pickup in action, you're sure to be inspired.
Play your way
Let nothing hold you back. It may be vintage-style, but its playability is better than ever. Featuring a smooth 'Vintage C' profile maple neck, you'll experience the feel of the '50s combined with modern craftsmanship. The result is one of the best fretting experiences ever, with all your licks flying out from the fretboard like birds. Whether you're jamming, performing, or recording, you'll discover your true potential on this bass.
The fretboard is also carved from maple. Offering a sleek surface for you to lay down your basslines on, it's guaranteed to fulfil your needs as a bassist. The maple wood has a bright resonance which flows into the tone of the Vintera '50s Precision, making each note jump out with a snappy bite.
