The Squier Classic Vibe '60s Precision Bass gives you a powerful 1960s-style instrument that nails the instrument's look and feel from that musically fertile era. A Fender-designed alnico split single-coil pickup serves up classic, fat and punchy P Bass tone, while a 4-saddle vintage-style bridge supplies rock-solid intonation. With all its vintage goodness and modern touches, the Squier Classic Vibe '60s Precision Bass is one of the hottest bass values at Music Experience. We're sure you'll agree.
There's nothing like the fat, punchy sound of a P Bass split single-coil pickup — it sits in a track like nobody's business. To say the P Bass is an industry standard is not an exaggeration: In the '60s and '70s, electric bass parts on session charts used to simply be labeled "Fender" — and that meant Precision. Motown even standardized on the Precision Bass for all their recording sessions. From James Jamerson to Pino Palladino, bassists from all genres have embraced the Precision Bass, and it continues to be a favorite in the studio and on stages everywhere.
One of the things that made the P Bass an instant hit with working bass players was its comfortable contoured body shape. Perfectly balanced whether playing standing or seated, the Squier Classic Vibe '60s Precision Bass will make those marathon playing sessions much more comfortable. Its C-profile neck satisfyingly fills out your hand and always feels just right — another reason why the Precision is the choice of bassists the world over.
Leo Fender brought us the Precision Bass back in the 1950s, and its classic body shape and comfortable neck continue to give today's Squier Classic Vibe '60s version excellent playability and a distinctive look. As with so many of his original designs, Leo nailed the essence of a great instrument right from the start. And over a half century later, the Squier Classic Vibe '60s Precision Bass still sets the affordable standard in electric bass guitars.
Squier's tapped into something really cool with their Classic Vibe series — hot mods of classic Fenders, all sporting top-shelf materials and components, with primo fit-and-finish. If you're a guitarist or bassist, you'll likely agree that vintage Fender guitars and basses are heavily lusted-after items, so it's great that Fender, in their infinite wisdom, have set their Squier subsidiary free to create hot-rodded and affordable versions of the classics.
