A musical icon
The original. When Leo Fender designed the very first Precision Bass in 1950, he could never have imagined the gigantic effect it would have on the world of music. Its incredible sound, playability, and style has seen it become an enduring fixture in the music of some of the world's very best artists.
The first widely used electric bass guitar, the Precision is synonymous with both quality and versatility. That's why a massive variety of musicians have all employed one in their music at one time or another. John Paul Jones, one of the greatest bassists of all-time, used one as Led Zeppelin rocked their way to super-stardom. Roger Waters played one as Pink Floyd became one of the greatest bands ever. Dee Dee Ramone helped invent punk with one. They've appeared in the music of Oasis, The Police, Guns N' Roses, Metallica, and Elvis Presley. Lasting pedigree.
