Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (21 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Iconic and Sweet!"
Sound: I just recently got the 2011 production model-candy apple red with maple neck. I absolutely love it-everything including the fretwork and setup was perfect! I did switch to D'Addario Chrome flats to smooth out the iconic P Bass sound. For country, rock or jazz I love this bass. This is a beautiful value for any bassist who wants a P Bass. Anyone who says this bass is overpriced is nuts! It sounds and looks as nice as my American P Basses! Feature: It is a P Bass and therefore, elegantly simple-a great girl right out of the box! The pickups seem hotter than I expected and she plays like a dream. Ease of Use: I play finger style and also use a pick for rockabilly. This bass handles beautifully! Quality: QC is excellent and it is roadworthy-after all, it has been on the road and studio tracks for decades! The parts seem first rate. Value: Worth every penny! Manufacturer Support: Fender is A1 although this bass hasn't required any support yet. The Wow Factor: It is beautiful in every category. The candy apple red is so gorgeous I want to bite it! For a more aggressive sound I sometimes switch to my fretless with roundwounds on it. I can cover anything with the two basses! Overall: I asked my wife to make sure this P Bass is the one I get buried with! I am 61 and a veteran of the theatre and gin-mill wars!
Style of Music: Blues, Jazz, Rockabilly, Western Swing

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Not for beginners only"
Sound: The instrument with the stock pickup is responsive and punchy and it can produce that characteristic p bass sound. The alder body resonates well and the stock pickup tone is a bit raspy but is a "good rock tone". I replaced the stock pickup with a Fender 62 reissue and the bass now sings "a less edgy in the highs". I still use Fender 7250 strings so it is fair comparison on sound. Feature: The craftsmanship is good, not great but excellent for this price point. The quality of wood is very good, the finish was better than expected and the tuners and bridge are solid. The fret work was pretty good and the nut depths are dead on. I did file the fret ends and the no. three fret was about .02" high so I re crowned it. After I did a set up the Precision is now a fantastic playing and sounding instrument. Ease of Use: The feel of the neck is very comfortable to play. I have a hard time with the Jazz necks since they are so tight at the nut. The string spacing over the sweet spot is conducive to slap style and I needed no time to adjust to the instrument, it is as comfy as my favorite jeans. Quality: The Standard series in the Fender line is far better than some other products in the same price range especially if you are comfortable with doing a little work yourself. Personally I like the truss rod adjustment up at the nut better than down by the body. Th American standards have graphite rods in the neck but I have had mine through the winter and did not need to re-adjust the neck. Value: Aw-Sum! I have had lots of basses maybe around twenty and this one is truly a winner, I am glad I bought it and will never part with it. After all is said and done I put a seventy dollar pickup in it and spent an hour or so doing a little tweaking and I would play this bass on any gig or any session. Manufacturer Support: I did not need it. The Wow Factor: Yes wow is right I like it better than my 90s American made Precision and if I had to part with one the USA made one would be the one to go. Overall: Fender did a great job with this one. Yes it is made in Mexico and yes it is less expensive than the American made counterpart but no the American is not "that" much better. After playing as a pro and semi pro for thirty yeas or so, I know a good instrument from the not so good. The Fender Standard Precision is a great value especially as a platform for customization. Read on I will elaborate.
Style of Music: Smooth Jazz, R&B and Classic Funk.
