Fender Proto Precision Bass
Fender's new Proto series basses (formerly the Pro Series) are Master Built Custom Shop instruments that have unique features. Typically these basses are created for musicians with very specific needs and some of these features have been incorporated into the Proto series models.
The 2014 Proto Precision Bass has the look of an early 1950's P-Bass. The body shape, headstock style, 1-ply pickguard, tuners and control knobs all have that cool vintage vibe. There are however some very modern appointments. The bass has a one-piece hard rock quartersawn maple neck with a 7.25" radius fingerboard.
The hand selected alder body is finished in smooth nitrocellulose satin. Other interesting features include a high mass RSD bridge, medium jumbo frets and a custom TV Jones Thunderblade pickup. The Proto Precision Bass is available in Arctic White, Black and faded 3-color Sunburst. The bass comes with a case, cable, strap, tool kit and certificate of authenticity.
