In 1951, Leo Fender introduced his most revolutionary product. The Precision Bass was a solid-body, bolt-on-neck instrument just like the six-string guitars he was making at the time, but this was different. No one had asked for an electric bass that was smaller and more portable than an acoustic stand-up. But Leo worked out the idea, put the product out there, and the world changed forever.

In this revised and updated third edition, the authors explore how Fender and other makers developed the bass guitar concept to expand its range and sound. And how some great musicians used the electric bass to redefine the sound of popular music.

Includes original interviews with manufacturers and players. Dozens of unusual, desirable, and rarely seen basses are presented in high-quality photos.

Everything to know about the story of the electric bass guitar in one stylish, readable volume. 176 pages
