Squier Classic Vibe 50's Precision Bass - White Blonde
Squier Classic Vibe 50's Precision Bass
Even though this is by far the most affordable bass ever offered at John Fox Bass, it's still a very cool bass that sounds great, feels great, and is loads of fun to play.
It came from the Aguilar Artist Loft collection, and it was used as a test bed for the fantastic Aguilar classic 50's style pickup that was installed at the Aguilar factory.
This bass was a big hit at the NAMM shows where it was featured.
Somewhere along the way, the truss rod nut broke off, so the truss rod cannot be adjusted any more. Luckily, the truss rod is set at a perfect setting, so it should not be an issue. Aside from the truss rod nut and the upgraded pickup (which is a significant upgrade), the bass looks MINT.
Here is a description I found on another web site:
A celebration of the birth of the P Bass® in the early 1950s, the Classic Vibe ‘50s Precision Bass produces massive tone. Player-friendly features include a slim, comfortable “C”-shaped neck profile with an easy-playing 9.5”-radius fingerboard and narrow-tall frets as well as a vintage-style bridge with threaded saddles. This throwback Squier model also features 1950s-inspired headstock markings, rich-looking nickel-plated hardware and a slick vintage-tint gloss neck finish for an old-school vibe.
