This model was actually a re-issue of the earliest Broadcaster/Precision era bass guitar design. One assumes that the huge popularity of the Telecaster guitar at the time, and the resemblance of the bass head stock to that of the Tele prompted the re-naming. A beautiful instrument all the way round, it can growl and bite with the best of them, but also has an attractive softer side, especially when plucked with the thumb.
