P BASS - '58 SPLIT COIL P

FROM ITS INTRODUCTION IN 1951, THE PRECISION BASS TRANSFORMED THE WORLD OF BASS PLAYING WITH ITS UNIQUE LOOK, FEEL AND TONE. THE BARE KNUCKLE P BASS RANGE CAPTURES THAT GROUND BREAKING TONE IN BOTH ORIGINAL 'TELE' BASS SINGLE COIL AND LATER HUMBUCKING SPLIT COIL DESIGNS.

P'58 Split Coil

As the Precision bass evolved, the early Tele bass single coil was replaced with a split-coil humbucking design in 1957. The '58 Split Coil P is based on the slightly later split coil design with flat profile, hand bevelled, Alnico V magnets arranged across two coils with opposing wind direction and magnetic polarity to cancel out hum. Scatter-wound by hand with 42AWG plain enamel wire, the tone is stronger in the bass with a more controlled high end and slightly scooped mid compared to the earlier single coil. Characteristic of the later '50s P basses, there's more output on tap for a muscular performance with exceptional punch
