2009 Fender Precision Bass ‘57 Vintage Reissue PB57-US Black w/ USA Pickup, Japan MIJ


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2009 Fender Precision Bass ‘57 vintage reissue model PB57-US in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. This upscale “Made in Japan” P Bass platform was produced exclusively for the Japanese domestic market and is uncommon outside of its country of origin, with vintage-accurate features including spiral (threaded) bridge saddles, full-size tuners, and a USA-made PB-Vintage split-coil pickup.

Tonewoods include an alder body and a one-piece maple neck, and this P Bass weighs 8lbs 14oz. The USA-made PB-Vintage split-coil pickup delivers the warmth, sweet treble articulation, and fundamental thump that define the Precision tone, particularly round and rumbling with the Tone knob rolled off to taste. This PB57-US has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 45-100 roundwound strings, comfortable action, and spot-on intonation.
