Authentic replica of a Precision Bass from 1960

With the Fender American Vintage II 1960 Precision Bass RW Daphne Blue Fender presents an authentic replica of a P-Bass of that coveted vintage, which with final tweaks of aesthetics and features helped Leo Fender's probably most innovative design to its still well-known form today. The black nitrocellulose finish hides an alder body with the usual comfort shapings, while the bolt-on maple neck in the comfortable "1960 C" profile carries a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard. A Fender Pure Vintage '60s Split coil pickup with traditionally passive electrics also elicits top-notch vintage tones with that signature low-mid growl suitable for grooving in just about any genre. Last but not least, Fender completes the American Vintage II 1960 Precision Bass RW Daphne Blue with Hardware in typical vintage style.

Tradition-conscious construction

When building the American Vintage II '60s Precision Bass, Fender naturally reproduces the historically authenticated methods and tonewoods to get as close as possible to the look and feel of a period original. While the black nitrocellulose lac quered alder body promises comfortable handling due to the typical comfort shapings on front and back, the bolt-on maple neck with the slim "1960 C" profile and 7.25" fingerboard radius creates the best conditions for implementing classic playing techniques on the 20-fret rosewood fingerboard, which is applied as a thick "slab board" to the flat neck blank. The authentic "clay dots" for marking the positions also turn out to be a loving detail.

A Fender Pure Vintage '60s style split-coil pickup with traditional passive circuitry elicits top-notch vintage tones for many styles of music.

Authentic vintage sound

As pickup for the American Vintage II 1960 Precision Bass Fender chooses a Pure Vintage '60 Precision Bass Split Coil. Designed after historical models and placed at the center of the body, the Bass pickup elicits traditional vintage tones from the bass amp, which, with the typical growl of the low mids, are not only suitable for driving rock and metal grooves, but also perfectly set off basslines between funk, blues, reggae and R'n'B. A classic passive electric with volume control and treble slider also helps to set the perfect bass sound.


FENDER American Vintage II 1960 Precision Bass RW Daphne Blue Headstock
In addition to the third "hootenanny" strap button, the headstock of the American Vintage II '60s P-Bass carries precise and tunable Pure Vintage tuners.

Authentic hardware equipment

Of course, authentic sixties-style Hardware completes the American Vintage II 1960 Precision Bass RW Daphne Blue. On the body, the factory-wound strings find their neck at the Pure Vintage 4-saddle sheet metal angle bridge, whose separately adjustable steel string saddles guarantee accurate intonation and comfortably playable string action. Behind the bone saddle, Pure Vintage Reverse Open-Gear tun ers also keep Fender 's electric bass guitar securely in tune. Last but not least, the headstock carries a third strap holder, which was offered in the sixties as an option for all bassists who wanted to attach their strap to the headstock in the classic manner.
