    Comments about Fender American Standard Precision Bass with Rosewood Fingerboard:

    I got a 1995 US standard P Bass. That was the first year that Fender made the drastic changes to their US line up of basses that still stands today. They had a little less options in my time (they only offered US standard in rosewood fret boards back then). That said there's nothing to regret about my 1995 US standard p. It has the same 62 style custom shop P pick up as the newer ones. It has the same graphite reinforcments and flex rods in it's neck. The only major change is the bridge was improved a little via a sustain block.
    I've owned about 6-7 different basses in my life time and recently relinquished much of what I owned but of the two basses I kept this was my number 1. For 20 years this has been my favorite bass I've owned and my most played in that time I've had to re-soldier the electronics once about 10 years ago and I only had to do one fret dressing last year. The worst thing that happened to my bass was it got knocked off the stand once and the neck screws got stripped out, It was an easy fix using some wood dowels and gorilla glue, bas still plays like it is new. You can't go wrong with this bass. US fender P's are easy to maintain, clean and repair. Granted I paid a lot less for my US fender P back in 1995 , but even with today's pricing they are worth the investment , especially at the deal MF gives you. If you are a working musician you owe it to yourself to get one of these. I would certainly get another one if I could afford it right now.

      Comments about Fender American Standard Precision Bass with Rosewood Fingerboard:

      this bass is decent, but you either get a good one or a bad one. another gripe i have with this bass is the fact that unlike its jazz bass counterpart, it doesnt have a custom shop pickup. save your money and get the fender 50s mim precision.

            The pj mim fender I had just didn't make me happy. After shopping around I found the American standard p-basses at the local stores all had necks that needed serious adjustment (is. Roller coaster ride). I took a chance that MF would do better and they certainly did. I still haven't taken this in for a setup and may not. It also comes in a serious case. Between this p-bass, my carvin lb-70 and my Tacoma thunder chief, I won't have to do any bass shopping for a long time

                  I am the type of person who is quick to criticize when things fall short of meeting my expectations, but I will also sing praises when something exceeds them. The Fender American Standard Precision Bass is one of the finest examples of quality craftsmanship I have ever seen in my life. Get one, you will love it.

                    I have never owned a bass that was brand new. so I may be easily impressed. That said, I love this bass. It was easy to play and sounded great right out of the box.

                    I play country. old time, blue grass and a little rock. It sounds great playing all of them.

                    a beautiful bass

                    Comments about Fender American Standard Precision Bass with Rosewood Fingerboard:

                    I got the red cola with rosewood. The color is nice - not too light of a color - just enough of a darker shade so it doesn't stand out like a sore thumb. It has the stock round wound strings - I'll try flat wounds in the future. Classic precision sound - need I say more? I struggled with my decision between maple and rosewood fretboard. Without a maple to compair it too it still sounds great!
                    It's a precision. Volume and tone - that's it. The high mass bridge is nice.
                    Needed some set up. Other then that it looks flawless to me.
                    You get what you pay for with this beauty. Nice case - even a guitar strap, cord and necessary tools.
