Product Description

Fender invented the electric bass guitar, introducing the Precision Bass in 1951. Its thick sound and indestructible build changed the face of popular music. New American Standard Precision basses are today's versions of the great instruments of bass heroes past and present-the modern interpretations of the classic instrument, refined for today's players.

The new American Standard Precision basses feature Fender's new high-mass vintage bridge, a thinner finish undercoat that lets the body breathe and improves resonance, new and improved Fender tuning keys that keep the classic look but are 30 percent lighter, a richer and deeper neck tint for a more elegant appearance, a great-looking glossed rosewood fingerboard and satin back for smooth playability, a new Fender-exclusive SKB molded case and a gorgeous new Blizzard Pearl finish option. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Fender products.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (8 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Finally, a real bass!"
Sound: I'm taking the factory strings off and put flats on her, getting rid off the squeak and bringing on the smooth. Feature: Very simple, that's what I like about her. I did take off the strap buttons and put strap locks on. Love the feel of the neck. I got the 3 tone with a rosewood fingerboard. When I got her out of the box and opened up the case I need a towel and a cigarette. Ease of Use: Very simple, very easy Quality: I'm satisfied with my fender p bass Value: I'm keeping this one. I've wanted the 3 tone with rosewood fingerboard for a long,long time and I finally got her. What really made it possible for me to get her was the 10 payments at 120. Hope zZOUNDS will bring back the 10 payments every now and then. Also, it comes with the skb hard shell case. Manufacturer Support: Don't need it. The Wow Factor: The 3 tone rosewood fingerboard is gorgeous and for me it's an American made fender standard p bass. Overall: Plain, simple, and gorgeous.
Style of Music: 70's,80's,90's rock, some old and new country, indie rock, and a lil southern rock

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "great recording bass"
Sound: I record this bass into my DAW using a 6176 and it sounds awesome like the space shuttle taking off from Cape Canaveral. Feature: The limited selection of controls (tone, volume, no pickup selection) makes it easy to recreate the original recording's sound and feel on subsequent (re-)tracking. Ease of Use: Less is definitely more. See above. Quality: Finish looks great, fitting and assembly is top-notch. American made! Neck is not too thin or a baseball bat. The contour body of this bass makes it really comfortable and the look is high-tech. Only complaint is the frets on the lower side of the neck were a little rough. It could be my hands, a visual inspection showed nothing wrong, but a little sanding took care of it. Value: I could have spent less and gotten something a little less finished, or spent more (custom shop or deluxe) that had more finishing/pampering or more features than I need or want. Manufacturer Support: Have not dealt with Fender. The Wow Factor: This is the quintessential tool for the recorded sounds I was looking for... just a killer-sounding easy to use bass that provides the bottom end for half a century of rock n roll recording history. Overall: A standard for generations now.
Style of Music: rock, electronic, metal
