          Comments about Fender American Standard Precision Bass with Maple Fingerboard:

          Got this bass on Wednesday(01/14/15) & it's better than I expected,& the custom shop pickups just make this bass even better. I was worried about the weight but didn't need to be, it's so light and comfortable and feels nice on your knee or a strap. My only very small gripe is that at this price it should have come with straplocks as standard. I am hoping that this will be my last bass guitar that I buy it's fantastic.

            Like most other people, I love this guitar. It plays in tune with no annoying overtones. It is also quite beautiful. I cannot think of a negative.

              Comments about Fender American Standard Precision Bass with Maple Fingerboard:

              I have been playing a Spector Euro 4lx for almost 4 years. its a fancy bass with A P/J EMJ Active pickups.I've been using the bridge pickup alot more than the neck and would never turn the bridge pickup all the way down and let the neck pickup rock by itself. After a couple of battery misshaps I've decided I've had enough and decided to get a secondary simple and classic backup bass I wanted a modest bass to use in rehearsals to minimize the chance that the battery on my Spector would die on me during importent gigs . picking up a precision bass never crossed my mind since it had a little negative stereotyps among "modern" bass players.
              I played a few Jazz basses and disliked them all. it felt way to cocky and arrogant. I picked up this precision and could't put it down. It broke every negative stereotype that jazz musician's had about this bass. it fits every style that I play (live): R&B seesions,a 12 piece Salsa orchestra and jazz bands not to mention rock. It has a very deep and soulful sound. when you reach the high note on your'e solo it gives you a smooth silky tone that might remind playing with a bow. I wanted to get a bass just for small sessions and it ended up being a personal favorite to use on gigs and recordings.

                  Just purchased the 2012 standard P bass bought it used, when I received the bass it looks brand new the fine scratches on the body that were shown in the pictures are no longer visible the rest of the bass looks great. The setup is perfect it has a great feel to it. Also the case is brand new, came with a strap, cord, hex tools and cleaning cloth.

                      I own 4 basses in all and just received this one and I can say it's my favorite. The electronics are as quiet as a church mouse with beautiful tone for such a simple package. The neck has a nice easy feel to it that doesn't tax your hand. The fit and finish are flawless and it's nicely balanced as it hangs off your shoulders. I had certain expectations when I ordered it and was not disappointed with any aspect of the guitar. It certainly lives up to Fenders reputation and history. I give it a 10 out of 10 rating and would say it's definitely worth spending the extra money over the Mexican standard P Bass or similar models.
