"The Fender Bass: An Illustrated History" by J.W. Black and Albert Molinaro https://amzn.to/2LLVl2L
This is our short history video of the Fender Precision Bass. Since this is a "short history" this is in no way meant to be a guide for collectors, we just try to hit the major portions in the development of the instrument.
First I'd like to thank Rick Beato for mixing the bass track used in the video. Mixing five tracks of bass was well beyond my meager mixing skills. So as in all things on this channel, I owe a great debt to Rick.
