Fender American Vintage II

The Fender® American Vintage II series presents
a remarkably accurate take on the revolutionary
designs that altered the course of musical history.
Built with period-accurate bodies, necks and
hardware, premium finishes and meticulously
voiced, year-specific pickups, each instrument
captures the essence of authentic Fender
craftsmanship and tone.

The late '50s to the early '60s was a watershed
period in the development of the Precision
Bass®, a time of transition that would see the
introduction of many new appointments that
would become synonymous with the P-Bass®.
By 1960, the design of the P-bass had eclipsed
the earlier cues culled from the Telecaster® - now
the P-bass had a Strat®-style headstock shape,
comfort-contours, pickguard mounted electronics
and 4-saddle bridge. Adorned in 3-Color Sunburst
and topped with a 4-ply tortoiseshell pickguard,
the 1960 Precision Bass represented a more
refined, enduring aesthetic for the model.
Featuring a premium alder body, Pure Vintage
'60 Split-Coil P-Bass pickup and a substantial "C"
shape hard rock maple neck mated with a 7.25"
radius slab rosewood fingerboard, the American
Vintage II 1960 Precision Bass reproduces the
quintessential tone and feel of the original.

The instruments in the American Vintage II series
are direct descendants of the original Fenders:
designed for players with a fine appreciation for
vintage Fender tone and feel and built with
unmatched quality, down to the last screw. These
are Fender electrics in their purest form: Fender
American Vintage II, the stuff of legends.
