Fender Custom Shop Vintage Custom ’57 P Bass Time Capsule Package – Surf Green #65564



Fender Custom Shop Vintage Custom ’57 P Bass Time Capsule Package, Maple Neck, Surf Green

“The Time Capsule Package is so interesting to me.  It’s as if it’s NOS with no wear at all but slightly lower gloss.  I love the contrast of the non-tinted neck, which is very different than most custom shop models that we see.   The 57 hand wound pickup faithfully recreates the first incarnation of the split coil P.  With a 57 Soft “V” profile, a 7.25” radius and medium vintage frets give this bass a noticeably old-school feel.”  – Anthony

The Vintage Custom ’57 Precision Bass exemplifies the flagship design that has carried the torch for the electric bass for so many years on stages and on the greatest recordings of all time. This venerable model year introduced the now-familiar split double-rectangular humbucker pickup, the larger Strat-style headstock and the Three-color Sunburst finish. The body is constructed of two-piece hand-selected alder and is finished in NOS lacquer. The one-piece quartersawn maple neck has a ’57 “soft V” profile, 7.25″-radius fingerboard and 20 medium vintage (47095) frets.

A hand-wound ’57 P bass pickup delivers perfect vintage low-end thump and is wired to master volume and tone controls. Other features include a vintage-accurate single-ply gold anodized pickguard, four-saddle vintage-style bass bridge, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and a disc string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.

The bass pictured is the actual bass that you will receive. It comes with Fender’s Factory Warranty and our 100% satisfaction guarantee! It will be professionally set up and ready to play before it leaves our store.
