The Fender Custom Shop is known for creating some of the world's best instruments, and for those that want a classic, time-tested, proven workhorse, a 60's P Bass is the way to go.  We just got this one in, which is a great testament to how great a Custom Shop bass is.

The 1961 Precision Bass Relic provides fitting testament to the innovative style and simplicity of the indispensable instrument in its tenth year, showcasing classic features from that era with a few custom enhancements. The two-piece select alder body sports a well-worn Relic lacquer finish for the battered look bestowed by many a stage and tour bus. The quartersawn maple neck features a ’60-style “oval C” profile, topped by a 9.5”-radius flat-lam rosewood fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets.

Dynamic low end comes from a vintage-accurate hand-wound ’62 P-bass pickup, with master volume, master tone and vintage P-Bass wiring. Other features include a four-ply brown shell pickguard, vintage-style bass bridge with threaded steel saddles, vintage -tyle tuning machines, bone nut and disk string tree. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
