Fender Custom Shop "Golden Rose" 1959 Precision Bass Relic Rosewood Copper Metallic
EXCLUSIVE TRUETONE COLOR SET - GOLDEN ROSE
As part of a close partnership with the Fender Custom Shop, Truetone Music cooked up an exclusive run of guitars, known as "Truetone Color Sets". It's where we do a quartet of instruments - Strat, Tele, Jazzmaster and Jazz or Precision bass - all in the same color, as a matching set. For the colors, we picked unique ones that are rarely ever seen. In this case, it's Copper Metallic.
A truly unique custom creation, the "Golden Rose" 59 P Bass came to be straight from the minds of Truetone Music to the Fender Custom Shop, and is now back at Truetone Music. The Copper Metallic lacquer finish on the body and matching headstock blends beautifully with Gold hardware and Anodized Gold pickguard, resulting in a golden ambience rarely even seen on a P Bass . It's not just a stunning look - this vintage styled bass is a soul machine ready to pump out the sound heard around the world: the Fender P Bass.
We requested a "light relic" treatment, with heavy checking but no arm wear or buckle rash. This is close to a Journeyman Relic finish, with just a little bit more put into it. The neck is a very comfortable 60's Oval C shape, with quartersawn maple topped by a flat lam dark rosewood fretboard, completed with a vintage radius and frets. The base model specific '59 P Bass pickups provides all of the warmth and thump you've come to expect from a vintage P bass.
We have an extremely close relationship with the Fender Custom Shop, which results in exclusive instruments only found in Club Fender at Truetone Music. This bass is one of the best examples of this partnership. For more details, contact us to get the full scoop. Or just scoop this one up today!
