1957 Original Fender Precision Bass 1-57 Neck & Body Date, 46th week 1956 pots

Since its introduction in 1951, the only major design change for the P Bass was the use of beveled edges brought about in 1954. Part way through 1957, however, Fender radically altered the P Bass to be more in step with the increasingly popular Stratocaster. Design updates for 1957 included a new split-coil pickup, a new smaller anodized aluminum pickguard, a wider headstock that more closely resembled that of the Strat, and a switch from string-through body construction to the strings terminating at through the bridge. These updates were not universal till mid-year, so many '57 P Basses (like the one pictured) still carry the original features of years previous. This variation will impact the value of '57 Precisions.
