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 GROUNDBREAKING TONE IN BOTH THE ORIGINAL ‘TELE’ BASS SINGLE COIL, AND LATER, HUMBUCKING SPLIT COIL DESIGNS.
P’65 Split Coil P
Grey fibreboard flat work, non bevelled Alnico V magnets and a lighter wind of 42AWG plain enamel wire characterise this mid ’60s inspired split coil set. A brighter high-end, but equally solid bottom-end, make the ’65 Split Coil P perfect for rosewood board P basses. Compared to the ’58 Split Coil P, the mids are a little hollower with a woodier tone while the bottom-end remains full and warm. The two coils are wired in series for full hum-cancelling, and feature black and white cloth ‘push back’ hookup.
