In 1954 when the famous Stratocaster appeared with all its refinements, the Precision Bass Began to undergo some *intermediate* modifications such as a contoured body, a two section nickel plated bridge, a white single layer pickguard and the switch from slotted head screws to Philips head screw. Lire la première page
Le sujet - la "Fender Bass" - méritait qu'on s'y attarde un peu plus, mais ce livre reste trop sommaire et ne fait que décrire brièvement les différentes basses fabriquées par Fender et leur évolution. On y trouve tout de même des photos intéressantes.
sur "Near the begining" de Vanilla Fudge...Là ça arrache même les boulons de 12...Mais Derek Smalls de Spinal Tap à la double basse (2 fois 4 cordes) + Nigel Tufnel à la basse solo...Même Pagesey avec sa double neck Gibson, il ne l'a pas fait....

3.0 étoiles sur 5Unfulfilled potential!7 octobre 2000
Par Eamon O'Regan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Klaus Blasquiz'"The Fender Bass" purports to give a history of this important family of instruments, and is full of information. It is not exhaustive - hence its compact dimensions and reasonable price. Clearly,corners were cut here.Written in English, one gets the impression that either (a) Mr Blasquiz is ill at ease with the English language as mistakes in grammar and idiom are quite numerous,or (b) more seriously, that it was very badly proof-read.Some details: the very cover features two of the short-lived Precision Pluses from the early 90's-hardly the model that springs to most minds when considering this revolutionary instrument. As regards the text, it is compacted into frames on the page which make for difficult reading.There is little if any continuity in the text. The whole thing resembles a high-school project rather than the serious work that this important subject had called for,and which is yet to appear.This is a pity, as clearly a lot of work went into the research, and and for the sake of a few dollars extra per copy, "The Fender Bass" could have been an attractive and interesting work as there is clearly a lot of information at hand.It cannot be considered to rank with Duchossoir's works on the Stratocaster and Telecaster guitars. Mr Blasquiz at least attempted such a work-for that he is to be commended. It is a pity that the whole thing doesn't quite hang together.This is a story that will have to be retold.

4.0 étoiles sur 5A Good Primer on Fender Basses5 janvier 2000
Par Tom Campbell - Publié sur Amazon.com
The 50th anniversary of the first Fender Precision Bass is closely approaching. Klaus Blasquiz has detailed the first 40 years of development of the two principal electric basses -- the Precision Bass and the Jazz Bass -- and has included ample information about other basses produced by Fender. Abundantly illustrated (including four solid pages of color photos), both common and unusual models are displayed in catalog shots, detail closeups and in the hands of bassists who have favored Fender. If you are looking for production lists, this is not your book. However, if you are looking for a thorough history of Fender basses, this book will leave you well satisfied.

Will be well used. More than a reference book. Lots of pictures and a short serial number section.

2.0 étoiles sur 5Buy the J.W. Black & Albert Molinaro book instead14 juillet 2006

Klaus Blasquiz's book is a noble effort, but weak on details, weak on pictures and unbelievably weak on editing and proofreading. One gets the impression that English is not his first language - and the fact that nobody fixed this in editing is unforgiveable in a "professional" reference book. I recently got the Black and Molinaro book, it's WAAAY better with lots of luscious photos.

1.0 étoiles sur 5A waste of money14 décembre 2004

This book is poorly researched, badly written and with a questionable selection of photographs. The cover photo basses are not even mentioned in the text! Only upside, a few rare photos from the fifties. Normally, you get what you pay for, so put your money into one of the more serious books on the subject.
