What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
Noiseless N3 pickups Stacked design, vintage tone and dynamics
High-mass vintage bridge Increased sustain and harmonic response
Vintage-style tuners with tapered shafts Lightweight, stable, added tension and sustain
Compound-radius fretboard Natural, rounded and balanced feel
The Fender American Deluxe Precision Electric Bass is a top-of-the-line instrument. For starters, it comes to you with Fender's redesigned N3 Noiseless Pickups with switchable onboard active electronics. The neck employs Posiflex graphite support rods to give it unprecedented balance and control with regard to action adjustment. The hardware and finish are top-notch throughout, and reveal numerous thoughtful details and fine touches. Truly one of the finest instruments in Fender's bass line, this P Bass was designed with the working bassist in mind.

Made to Be Played

The American Deluxe Precision Bass is constructed from an alder body carved with a strongly contoured heel to give you upper fret access. The maple neck is carved in an asymmetric "C" shape that should feel incredibly natural in your hands. It is finished with a handsome tinted gloss polyurethane. The fingerboard is bound rosewood with a 9.5 radius, while the scale length is a familiar 34 inches. You'll appreciate the rolled fingerboard edges and highly detailed nut and fret work. There are block dot position markers on 9 of the 21 medium jumbo frets.

Dual N3 Pickups with Active Preamp

Fender's redesigned N3 Noiseless pickups give you great response and tone from the moment you plug in. The N3s deliver a degree of headroom that has yet to be matched by any other P Bass. The well-placed controls give you both a Pan Pot pickup selector and a Blend Control. You can tweak your way to a great tone with the Treble Boost/Cut, Midrange Boost/But, Bass Boost/Cut. Whenever you want to switch between Active and Passive modes, simply hit the mini toggle switch. With such a flexible tonal range, this bass is ready to serve a wide variety of uses and musical styles.

You'll strap the American Deluxe Precision on with the chrome American Series strap buttons that match the rest of the fine hardware on this axe. Fender Lightweight Vintage Style button tuners key your instrument in tune with a minimum of fuss.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
