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 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 with Rosewood Fingerboard:

    After trying both this bass as well as the Fender Elite P-Bass, I can honestly say I prefer this bass. Even with passive pickups it is possible to get great range of tone, the neck is very comfortable, everything about this bass feels high quality.

      Comments about Fender American Professional Precision Bass with Rosewood Fingerboard:

      I've been always looking for the one P bass, as aside from price, considered as holly grail vintage and re-issues are not always most comfortable to play. Fender Professional has all appointments of custom made instrument, with its neck being one of the best I've had privilege to play, New V-mod pickup shines after quick set up. I would strongly recommend buying this new line of Fender Precision basses.

      Comments about Fender American Professional Precision Bass with Rosewood Fingerboard:

      Well there's not much I can say about it because it's just a perfect P-bass. The pickup is clear, punchy, and FAT as can be and much better than the '63 custom shop pickup and. It's extremely versatile with EQ. The bass is light and has excellent sustain with a comfortable neck with tall frets which allows for beautiful and easy vibrato. An all-around dream instrument.

      Comments about Fender American Professional Precision Bass with Rosewood Fingerboard:

      Yes you need to spend some time setting these new fender basses up. Check out Dave's World on YouTube for complete P bass setup guide. Easy anyone can do it. They give you the truss rod allen wrench! Set up neck, string height, and intonation. Very easy and every one has different tastes. Now you are in charge of your own instrument and can tweek it to exactly how you want it. For gods sake put some flats on it - this bass is awesome. Rosewood fretboard needed some oil treatment and now this thing is amazing. I smile every time I look at it. :>) It makes me happy!
