Custom Shop '60s P Bass split pickup Big, warm bass, strong mids and snappy high end
The American Standard Precision Bass continues a legacy as old as the bass guitar itself. Since its introduction in 1951, the P Bass has remained an absolute standard leaving a indelible mark on virtually every genre of popular music. The American Standard P Bass uses a Fender Custom Shop pickup and a set of other enhancements to offer one of the best Precision Basses yet.

Timeless P Bass Tone

Whether furiously jamming with a heavy-gauge pick or gently plucking with the tips of your fingers, the Precision Bass is equipped to compliment every style and sound. The use of a high-end Fender Custom Shop '60s Precision Bass split single-coil pickup delivers copious amounts of classic P Bass tone with clear mids and bold, engrossing low-end. The P Bass sound has long been heralded for the earth-shaking fullness, and the American Standard has it in spades. The rich, clear tones do an outstanding job filling in the space beneath the guitars which is especially good news for metal and other rock players who have to contend with overzealous guitarists in the mix.

Updated Features

In addition to the high-end Custom Shop pickup, the model features a myriad of welcomed updates. The undercoating is thinner than in previous generations which allows the wood to breathe better and the bass to resonant more. The neck is in a comfortable modern C-shaped profile with a smooth rosewood fingerboard and hand-rolled edges. The high mass vintage bridge provides excellent stability, as do the posiflex graphite support rods running through the neck.

Features:

- Fender Custom Shop '60s Precision Bass split single-coil pickup for classic P Bass tone
- Posiflex graphite neck support rods providing excellent stability
- Modern C-shaped neck with hand-rolled rosewood fingerboard
- Sturdy high mass vintage bridge
- Thin undercoating for enhanced resonance
- Included hardshell case

Pick up an American Standard Precision Bass and experience the same comfortable feel and engrossing tones that have made the go-to model of Sting, Mike Dirnt of Greenday, and Roger Waters.

zZounds Expert Review
Few basses embody the word 'Standard' as well as the American Standard Precision Bass. I have had the pleasure of playing a gamut of Fender basses, and there's just something about the P Bass that sets it apart from the others. It feels great, and has the big sound that's been recreated and imitated over the decades. When I walk into a venue, and hear a fat bass and wonder what instrument he's using, nine times out of ten it's a P bass. I've been lucky enough to light up a Fender Bassman rig with the American Standard Precision Bass, and the fat, warm growl of this bass drew a big grin on my face. From hard rock, to pop, to hip-hop, the Fender P Bass is always a good choice -- it's perfect for almost everyone.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Feels like home"
Overall: I have played a wide verity of bass from Gipson to stagg and every time I pick up this p-bass it feels like part of my family , it just fits. The sound,tone, weight and neck are perfect . I bought the jade metallic which is such a cool funky color . An American Fender is the only way to go in my opinion and the only get better with age. I did buy the one with the maple neck and I have no complaints . If your serious about your bass equipment than this is a most have. Zzounds is the place to buy it, if you go straight through Fender they want 1700 as for zzounds is asking 1299. Any way I can go on and on but I leave you with this ... I love this bass!!
Style of Music: Funk.punk.rock,regga, Motown ... What ever I feel like at the moment.
