      Comments about Fender Standard Precision Bass Guitar:

      The Precision is where it all started. So this bass has a lot to live up to. And it does live up to its reputation. My first "real bass" was a Japanese Precision, and I've owned American Standards over the years. Right out of the box the bass felt like a favorite old shoe that had been reconditioned. The finish (Candy Apple Red) was flawless. The neck was straight, with good fretwork. The action was nice, and the intonation was good. There was no fret buzz, or dead spots on the neck. The pickups were set nice, with even volume string-to-string. I saw no need to have it set up, as it was good to go right out of the box. I immediately used it as my main work bass at a gig (which was risky, it being brand new and untried and all), and it burped, grunted, and barked like a Precision should. Bottom line-It's a Precision, and I was hard pressed to find anything to complain about. I gave it 4 stars because I would give an American Standard 5, even though I couldn't find that big a difference between the two.

        Comments about Fender Standard Precision Bass Guitar:

        I am very happy with my Fender Precision Bass; it sounds good, it plays great, and the price was right. I wanted this color scheme to match my Fender Stratocaster (I know its kind of corny but if you have to pick a color why not match another guitar that you love?) and I am very happy with it.

          This is a very good bass for the money. I am very happy with my purchase. I ordered this bass, and the first one I received was missing the volume knob, but Musician's Friend shipped a replacement immediately when I notified them of the issue, and the 2nd one is perfect for me. I picked this model because the colors matched a Stratocaster I own; I really like the look. The action is perfect, and it sounds fantastic.

            Comments about Fender Standard Precision Bass Guitar:

            I gave it a 4 out of 5 because the setup out of the box was quite awful. The neck had a considerable bow to it, but after some adjusting it's now straight as an arrow and holding. The nut was filed beautifully and the finish is flawless. After a good setup, I would rank this thing right up there with the $1200 american standard.

              The bass plays great, didn't need to do a lot of adjustments when I received it.
              Classic "P" bass sound, the maple fret board makes it a little brighter and growlier. Great bass for the money.

              Comments about Fender Standard Precision Bass Guitar:

              If you are a new bass player, this is a good one to start with. Or, if your situation is like mine and only needed a bass to lay down tracks, it works well in that area. However, you may want to move up in price and purchase an American made if your playing all of the time. The reason I gave it a 4 was due to no case nor gig bag comes with this guitar. There is no excuse for that, I wound up purchasing a hard shell case. Since I'm in my 60's I don't do much live work, but I do have a small recording studio. I use this bass to lay down tracks for those who record but don't have a band. I've spent so much for the 8 high end guitars and tube amps such as Fenders, Gibson's, G&L,PRS McCartney, Marshall JVM410 and amps like this. I just couldn't afford to buy the Fender that is top end. Even so, I doubt that if you listened to my recordings you would notice the bass guitar not a high price one. It holds tune well, if your a finger picker such as I it is easy to do, the finish looks well, and over all it looks pretty well made. I play this over an amp that is able to demonstrate what ever style you play. This bass can play bass low smooth, or add a lot of treble and raise the low end of your sound. This will work for me until at some point I will move up to the American Precision. I would strongly suggest that you don't drop below this price amount when you purchase a bass. Any thing less will cheat you out of a good playing experience.

              This bass is very awesome. It sounds great and looks very cool. It can get a good rock sound, a good punk sound and it's good for slapping too. I would highly reccomend buying this guitar and you shouldn't hesitate doing so.

                  I recently got my hands on one of these as my third bass, and I have to say I'm quite impressed. You really get what you pay for with this instrument, it sounds great, feels great, and overall is a quality bass.
