FDP Forum / Fender Bass Guitars and Bass Amps / 1970s P bass with two pickups



Sep 3rd, 2019 07:34 PM   Edit   Profile  

In the 1970s, I played my school’s Precision Bass in the jazz band. It had a maple neck, with two pickups (one split coil and one J bass), and had a pickup selector switch. There was one volume knob and one tone knob. The “thumb rest” was below the G string. Was this bass modified or did Fender produce Precisions with this combination of features?

Thanks in advance of responses.

I think the first manufacturer to combine a P and J-style pickup on one bass was Ibanez in the 1970s. Fender didn't get around to doing a PJ until the 80s.

So if you were playing a Fender PJ in the 70s, it was probably a bass that someone had modded.
