Dates of manufacture:
The Fender Hot Rod P-Bass was an USA made precision bass sold between 1999 and 2001. It featued new pickups: a Hot-Vintage P-bass pick and an extra Hot-Vintage Jazz bass pickup. This additional Jazz bass pickup was the hot-rodded element of the design.
Fender also later released a similar model called the American Hot-Rodded Precision Bass. The earlier Hot Rod P-Bass had Schaller Strap buttons and locking strap whereas the newer Hot Rodded Precision has non-locking strap buttons. Also the newer Hot-Rodded model has a skunk stripe on the back of the neck while the initial Hot Rod P-Bass has no skunk stripe.
