I’m an author. I’m also a bass player. I’m a finger-style player (well, pick…sometimes)
So, as a Friday celebration feature I will start posting pictures and tributes to my favorite basses.
Today, the 1951 Fender Precision “p” Bass. Sometimes called a “Tele” bass because the headstock matches the telecaster guitar. The bass is a slab style with a single pickup. I’ve only played a reissue (like the one pictured) but enjoyed its unique sound. One of the famous players of the 1951 fender precision is Sting from The Police.
