With its smooth playing feel and spotlight-ready style, this thunderous bass is ready to enter the studio or prowl the stage and help show the world your creative vision.

Master volume and tone controls are close at hand to shape the pickup's powerful voice so you can easily craft your sound. The "Modern C"-shaped maple neck hosts a 9.5"-radius fingerboard with 20 medium-jumbo frets that are ideal for almost any playing style, while the 4-saddle bridge is engineered for accurate intonation and easy action adjustment so you can personalize the feel to your playing style and taste.

Other features include a 3-ply pickguard, synthetic bone nut, vintage-style disc string trees, open-gear tuning machines and a four-bolt "F"-stamped neck plate that marks this instrument as real deal Fender as it gets.

A modern classic with genuine Fender sound, style and feel, the Player Precision Bass is ready to pump out some serious low end.

"Fender Player P"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Needed 1 more bass for recording. Long time bass player converted to guitar for making our recordings. Tons of research..there is 5 American P's here to choose from. I was going to mod something but kept listening close. the pickups in this bass are awesome. Classic P..motown with treble rolled off...rock-right where it needs to be & dropped its low but tight. This with Ampeg pf50t & SVT210av cabs is a lightweight studio musicians dream. The P up to 8 on volume is classic fender..dime..it just pushed the amp like no other bass i have. The fit& finish are impeccable..in comparison to other ones ...this is a bargain at this price
