When did Fender discontinue the Road Worn 50s Precision series?

  1. Hi all, I just bought a 2016 Fender Road Worn 50s Precision Bass. After a week with it, I really like it. However, still checking them out on Reverb. There are two listed from 2019. The serial numbers check out. I thought Fender stopped producing these in 2016. Anyone have any info on when production stopped and if it was 2016, why the 2019 ones exist? Thanks.

  2. AFAIR they were still available in 2019.

  5. Thanks. So then the Vintera came out with the Player Series. So Standard and Classic 50s series stopped and Player and Vintera series begins.
  6. I sent an inquiry to Fender regarding this. Here is the reply I got.

    Thanks for reaching out. These were introduced in 2009 and they were discontinued in 2019. I ran that serial number and it's legit. I hope this helps. Have a nice day!

    So, used Road Worns on Reverb from 2019 are correct. Reverb lists them as being discontinued in 2016. So that was causing my confusion.

    There are always appear wrong detail, wrong information and wrong bass as described on Reverb.
