Fridays are for finger-style: Bass of the Week – ’51 Fender Precision

51′ (reissue) Fender Precision Bass (Sting model)

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.

Rock on!

  1. I used to play the bass! Sometimes I wished I had played an acoustic guitar instead though >_<

      Cool! You can always do both. Kim Gordon from Sonic Youth plays guitar and bass.

  2. I like this Friday addition. I get to learn something new every Friday. 🙂
