I bought this bass scratch n dent (level 3). It had a couple of little knicks on it plus a nice bit of paint missing on the body but the sound was nothing short of spectacular! This bass feels really comfortable in your hands especially if you're upgrading from a less than quality bass. The tone is very good with the stock pickups. If you record at home and/or don't mind a couple scratches or knicks (aka character) and are only worried about good sound rather than aesthetics then definitely go with the open box ones that could end up saving you a couple hundred, if you're lucky like me!

I've been playing a standard jazz bass for a long time and decided to add a p bass to my collection. The first one I received must have bypassed QC entirely. When I took it out of the box, the volume and tone knobs were not on the bass. I dug them out of the box and put them on, no big deal. The second issue I noticed was that the E string tuner had a "notch" or "hump" in it, making it difficult to tune. I figured I'd replace the tuners eventually and didn't worry about it. During my first long practice with it, I noticed that the E string saddle was lowering itself after about 30 minutes of hard playing. Again, figuring I'd replace the bridge eventually, I decided to let that slide. I actually thought it came set up quite nicely, but thought I'd give the neck just a bit of relief. That's when I discovered that the truss rod was damaged. Turning it either way produced no results. I sent it back and ordered another one. This one is much better. None of the problems that I had with the first one. There are two dull (not quite dead) frets on the low E string, but nothing terrible. I will say that this bass looks great. I ordered it in arctic white. This bass will do, but if I were to purchase another, I'd probably go a little more high end than the standard series.

    Comments about Fender Standard Precision Bass Guitar:

    i jam 2-3 times a week with my band, fellow bassists and other band members love the growl of this p-bass. i happen to own an american p-bass but personally i think this one sounds better. if this bass was lost or stolen i would definately by another one just like it. only negative i have after owning this bass for 4-5 years is that the pickguard is pulling away from the body. warping i guess is what most would call it.

      Comments about Fender Standard Precision Bass Guitar:

      I had been wanting a real P bass for quite a while (I have previously owned a cheap P bass copy, an Epiphone Viola and a Squier Jaguar Bass) and leapt on an amazing deal on a "blemished" one - I would recommend the open box offerings to anyone as you can get some pretty unbelievable savings. The bass plays great so far and feels extremely substantial and well-made, especially compared to my Squier and P-copy. It has the perfect Precision tone and feel with some real punch, depth and/or sparkle depending on how you dial in the dead-simple controls and EQ your sound. The quality is great and it is a joy to play - super comfortable with the satin neck finish, and the stock strings are perfect for what I need. There is a small amount of fret buzz but I am sure a setup by someone who knows what they are doing more than I do will fix that. Intonation was the best I have seen on a brand-new instrument. The only real gripes I had were on the setup and delivery end rather than the factory (which was amazing and produced a really excellent instrument) - when I received the bass, the volume knob had come off in transit and was bouncing around in the box and the packing job was pretty lackluster; just a soft styrofoam-type bag and a few packing blocks in the box with the bass. Furthermore, the headstock was pushed right up against one side of the box, and there was a minor amount of denting on the section that made contact with the edge. I have put more effort into packing instruments in flight cases for plane travel, and another major musical instrument retailer (not mentioning any names) did a much better job shipping my aforementioned Squier Jaguar. I would have appreciated a bit more care being put into that, but fortunately there was no damage to the bass during shipping. Another big plus was that shipping was very prompt, with the bass arriving a day or two before the scheduled delivery date.

      In summary, I adore this bass and won't need another any time soon.

        I'm just learning to play and practice at home. I had a different bass guitar previously, and the difference between the two is like night and day. My Fender P sounds better and feels better. I'm so glad that I now own one of them.

          Comments about Fender Standard Precision Bass Guitar:

          Ther is no question this is a great bass. i just bought the placid blue from GC last week from over the phone. I had scouted this bass out for two weeks ans decided not to buy because i have a few fenders including a five string Jazz bass, a Squire P bass. the Precision Deluxe with the Jazz PU in red and gold and an American Jazz bass in natural ash, but this bass had a checker pick guard, a thumb rest, great strings, was well broken in without the roadworn price and the GC gave me a price I could not beat. So I bpught it before it was gone, I love playing it and will sell my Squire P bass which feels less refined in touch and feel.
          You cannot really go wrong with this bass I met Donald Duck Dunn, the bass player for the blues brothers, at a dinner before he died and he swore by the P Bass. That was good enough for me. RIP DUCK

              I got my Lake Placid Blue in trade for a DeArmond 5 string. It had Basslines in it when I got it and the guy who installed them must have been challenged in the solder department 'cause I had to have it redone. I've since added graphite saddles and black strings and it looks and sounds great. I used to gig with a red Japanese Jaguar bass but this one was so much more comfortable that I switched. I ran it thru a big Ampeg system recently and it sounded fantastic. You can't really go wrong with one of these.

                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.
