2008 Fender Squier Classic Vibe '60s Precision Bass Guitar (Sonic Blue)
I had my guitarist Bob Keefe install some 1978 Fender original Precision Pickups - and it sounds fantastic!!!!
Classic vibe with modern refinements.
The Squier Classic Vibe 60s Precision Bass is an electric bass guitar that delivers the true P Bass experience. The comfort contoured body fits like a glove and looks beautiful in Sonic Blue. Featuring a 20-fret vintage tint gloss maple neck with the modern playability of a 9.5" neck radius and vintage-style frets - you'll have no problem holding down the bottom end and pounding out round thick tones on this bass tone monster!
Back in 1982, the very first Squier by Fender guitars and basses came ringing out of Asia. Known for their excellent vintage-quality look, feel, sound and construction, those early Squier instruments and their Fender-branded counterparts are now highly sought-after collector's items revered by guitar enthusiasts as models of "getting it right" while aiming at value-conscious players. The Squier Classic Vibe Series reflects that simultaneous commitment to excellence, value and vibe'. Mirroring classic Fender designs, the Classic Vibe offering is not intended to be era or vintage correct but rather to impart the "vibe" of a classic Fender design. Each model has a distinctive feature set all adding up to one classic-looking instrument. Great sound, vintage looks, unbeatable value Classic Vibe!
