What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
Alder body Light weight with a wide tonal range
C-shaped neck profile Comfortable, rounded oval shape
American Standard P Bass Alnico V pickup Thick and warm tone, great projection, and no hum
Maple neck Bright tone, full sustain and strength
The American Standard Precision V Bass employs modern electronics and an ergonomic neck design to get the most out of the five-string experience. The P Bass has always been known for its robust low-end and comfortable feel, and both qualities seamlessly adapt to the five-string format. Like the rest of the American Standard series, the five-string P Bass with rosewood neck has been updated for delivering the utmost in quality, tone, and value from Fender.

Classic P Bass Tone with Five Strings

This five-string captures the classic tones of a vintage Precision Bass thanks to an American Standard P Bass alnico V split single-coil pickup. The broad yet clear bass tone that's endeared this model to players for generations shines through across all five strings. For 2012, the high mass vintage bridge has been updated to increase sustain through the body and neck. Also new for this release is a thinner undercoating finish which allows the wood to breath more openly and further enhances the instrument's resonance.

Features:

- Powerful American Standard Precision Bass Alnico V split single-coil pickup for classic P Bass tone
- Comfortable C-shaped neck with rosewood fingerboard and rolled edges
- Sturdy posiflex graphite neck support rods
- 5-String HMV high mass vintage bridge which can be top loaded or string thru body
- Included hardshell case

The Fender Precision Bass is a model excellently suited to handle the added depth of a fifth string. With bold bass tones, an extremely comfortable design, and all the quality you expect from Fender USA, this P Bass is set to take your playing to the next level.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Sell your other ones, get a P Bass."
Overall: I've owned several P Basses in my time, and no matter what I keep coming back. However, the 2012 Precision V is better sounding than any P Bass I have played or heard in quite some time. Aside from '72 Precision, this is my favorite bass.
Style of Music: Rock, Jazz, Funk, Soul, Hip-Hop, and a bunch of other junk...

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Want one? Get one."
Overall: Wow - this bass is incredible! The rosewood fretboard is smooth, and offers a rich, warm, deep tone. The open E buzzes a little bit, but I'll be taking it to a Luthier for a set up soon, and that should take care of it. Other than that, this one seriously one of, if not THE best, basses I've ever had the pleasure of playing. It is, after all, a P Bass. If you want one, get one. You'll love it!
Style of Music: Blues, rock, R & B, folk, bluegrass.
