VINTAGE 1963 PRECISION STYLE

For the bassist who craves pure vintage Fender style, the American Vintage series presents original-era model year basses built with meticulous attention to accurate details, bringing Fender history and heritage to authentic and exciting new life.

The Precision Bass spent 1963 providing the irresistible heartbeat of Motown, the rumble beneath surf music and the foundation of just about everything else onstage and in studios everywhere. Built using original tooling and based on actual 1963 models we tracked down, the U.S.-made American Vintage '63 Precision Bass returns you to that electrifying year with elegantly simple style, elemental build and feel, and pure vintage-style Precision tone.

FLASH-COAT LACQUER FINISH

The term flash-coat lacquer refers specifically to the quickly applied thin and final "flash" of topcoat lacquer applied to most American Vintage instruments. The composition and method of application for this finish layer lets an instrument "breathe" with a more natural resonance, and imparts a more authentically vintage appearance.

NEWLY VOICED AMERICAN VINTAGE PICKUPS

American Vintage instruments feature specially voiced pickups meticulously researched and crafted to reproduce the authentic design, voice and performance of specific instruments from individual model years in the 1950, ’60s and ’70s. Their superior sound and style is one of the defining hallmarks of the American Vintage series.

PERIOD-CORRECT NECK SHAPE

This instrument’s "C" neck profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) is sculpted to the most accurate period-correct spec possible, imparting an authentic vintage playing feel straight from the individual model year. The most prevalent neck profile shape, it’s remarkably comfortable and is ideal for all playing styles.

IMPROVED NECK AND BODY RADII ACCURACY

The meticulous vintage authenticity of this instrument even extends to carefully researched measurements of the various degrees of rounding on the edges of the body, neck and headstock. These subtleties are reproduced here with Fender’s highest-yet level of period-correct accuracy, and contribute to a truly faithful vintage-instrument experience.

BONE NUT

A string nut fashioned from bone contributes to superior tone and performance, not to mention being an authentic original-era Fender design element. Many players consider bone string nuts more "organic" sounding, with tonal quality unmatched by string nuts made using synthetic materials.

PERIOD-CORRECT CASES AND EPHEMERA

American Vintage instruments are complemented by cases that are every bit as vintage-authentic as the guitars and basses they so stylishly contain, accompanied by a fascinating wealth of in-case reproduction extras and accessories, such as straps, cables, polishing cloths, wiring kits, bridge covers, owner’s manuals and more.
