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 read more the posiflex graphite support rods running through the neck.

I've had several basses through the years, but this is the best. The custom shop pickups are great and handle all I throw at them. The action is good, I haven't had any fret buzz, and the tone pot has a great range of mellow to bright. I have the Sunburst and it is beautiful and very well done. I love this bass.
