Fender Classic 50s Precision Bass Lacquer Arctic White 2018
Fender Classic Series 50s P, lacquer arctic white finish, made in Mexico 2018. The Classic Series was Fender's tastiest and priciest options made in Mexico, and these Lacquer Series instruments took the vintage chíc a notch further by adding a nitro finish. The nitro wears quickly, hence the rub wear and glossing on this one despite it's relative youth. It also allows the wood to breathe better, so you get a more natural open midrange and a bit of extra attack and punch. This is a fun player: the chunky neck is intuitive and friendly and the lightweight body lets you feel the notes. The pickup has been upgraded to a 60s voiced USA model, so that's a little more balanced and open than the stock pickup and delivers a tasty balanced growl. Now, internet, please be assured: this is white and gold, not black and blue... it looks terrific too I must say.
