    Just a bit ahead of ya, Bro. Born August, 1951............hummm, just a few months before the first Fender P Bass...........Karma!

    Although I have no idea or specific info, my March 1953 P Bass might be around the 400th to 600th slab body P Bass made.

    Many think that only 1,200 were made from October 1951 to about April 1954.

    In the beginning, the Precision Bass was not popular nor was it a big seller for Fender. Hardly anyone knew what to do with this solid body electric bass. It was a "freak".

    Thank-you for your interest.
