Fender Japan '57 Precision Bass PB57-53 Candy Apple Red 1993
Fender '57 P, candy apple red, made in Japan 1993-4. The P bass was the first ever successful production model of the electric bass; it hasn't really changed much since the 50s because... it hasn't needed to. This classy character invokes the 1957 model in it's chunky D-shape neck with maple board, spaghetti logo and single ply guard. It's nice and light and super resonant in the hands; it feels super lively and the neck is a delight. Plugged in, the maple board adds a lovely crisp, articulate top end articulation to the P-bass trademark punchy attack and big rounded lows; it sounds terrific. The candy apple finish pops beautifully against the aged white guard and golden maple board, it's surely an attractive item. Can't go wrong here!
