Whats this Fender P-Bass?

  1. How's it a 59? with "Maple Frets" From FENDERs own site...Might be a simple answer...

    '59 Precision Bass®

    1959 was a transitional year for the P Bass®. Rosewood fretboards replaced the one-piece maple neck. Meticulously built to replicate the original, these models also feature alder (3-Color Sunburst) or ash (Vintage Blonde and White Blonde) bodies, a “C”-shape maple neck, vintage split single-coil pickups and a gold anodized pickguard. Accompanied by a Tweed case, strap, cable and polishing cloth.

    1959 was a transision year.

    I've played three different "real" 1959's.

    The first was a Ash body, trans white maple fingerboard, anodized pickguard.
    Much like a 1958.

    The second, Alder body, LPB, rosewood fingerboard. anodized pickguard.

    The third, alder body, sunburst, rosewood fingerboard, tort. pickguard.

    All had wonderful neck profiles.
