OVERVIEW

The best of yesterday and today.

Bass—it’s where rhythm meets melody, creating a righteous groove that forces you to move with it. Without the Fender Precision Bass, the original electric bass, dance floors everywhere would be empty. As music evolves, our instruments change in lockstep; the end result is today’s version of this seminal instrument—the American Professional Precision Bass.

The Precision Bass was a truly revolutionary instrument when it was released in 1951. Not only could bassists finally play with perfect intonation, they could be heard along with the rest of the band. From funk to rock, hip-hop to reggae; all of the music that’s enriched our lives began with the thunderous Precision Bass.

Developed by longtime bass pickup master Michael Bump, the brand-new V-Mod split-coil Precision Bass pickup uses a carefully selected blend of alnico magnet types for balanced tone with authentic Fender sonic DNA. The “golden” ’63 P Bass neck profile feels just right nestled in your hand, becoming one with you, while the narrow-tall frets provide a familiar playing feel and perfect intonation. Posiflex graphite support rods run the length of the neck, adding stability to the neck while resisting warping. The redesigned tuning machines use a fluted shaft, creating the optimum break angle over the nut while keeping the string windings tight for increased sustain and enhanced tuning stability.

The best of yesterday and today, the American Professional Precision Bass V is the latest form of electric inspiration from Fender. Step up and stake your claim to a legend. Includes hardshell case.

Comments about Fender American Professional Precision Bass V Maple Fingerboard:

I have been playing bass (on and off switching from bass and guitar in different bands), so I never really had a "professional bass." My last bass was (what I would qualify) as a semi-professional bass. I have been playing on that for 9 years, so it did hold up well, but I promised myself a few years back I would "upgrade" next time. I was a little nervous of making such an expensive purchase "online" without actually getting to see it, and play it first but since none of our local music stores didn't really have what I was looking for I decided to take the chance and so far, have not been disappointed. This bass plays great and I have noticed, on places where I would let a bass note ring...the sustain is much longer than my old bass. And I can definitely tell the difference in tone from my old bass to this one. Even though this didn't have "active pickups" and my other did...one would think it wouldn't be as "full" but it certainly is. Thoroughly impressed!!! Two thumbs up and five stars!!!
