Following Fender's lead, in 1953, Gibson released the first short scale violin-shaped electric bass with extendable end pin, allowing it to be played upright or horizontally.

Many styles of music include the bass guitar, including rock, heavy metal, pop, punk rock, country, reggae, gospel, blues, symphonic rock, and jazz.

It is often a solo instrument in jazz, jazz fusion, Latin, funk, progressive rock and other rock and metal styles.

The Precision Bass (or "P-bass") evolved from a simple, un-contoured "slab" body design and a single coil pickup similar to that of a Telecaster, to a contoured body design with beveled edges for comfort and a split single coil pickup.

The Fender and Gibson versions used bolt-on and glued-on necks.

Around 1947, Tutmarc's son, Bud, began marketing a similar bass under the Serenader brand name, prominently advertised in the nationally distributed L. Heater Music Company wholesale jobber catalogue of 1948.

However, the Tutmarc family inventions did not achieve market success.

The EB-3, introduced in 1961, also had a "mini-humbucker" at the bridge position.
