Fender American Professional Series
It doesn't always have to be "out with the old and in with the new." As far as guitars are concerned, a healthy mix gives the best of both worlds. Blending the best of yesterday and today, the Fender American Professional Series gives players optimized, modern versions of revered models like the Stratocaster, Telecaster, Jaguar, Jazzmaster, Jazz Bass and Precision Bass. With unique configurations, refined controls and pickups from design gurus like Tim Shaw and Michael Bump, these American Professional guitars and basses represent the latest form of electric inspiration from Fender.
American Professional Jazz Basses
Speedy, powerful and articulate, the Jazz Bass quickly carved out a niche for itself when it was released in 1960. The slim, ultra-fast neck and slick offset-waist styling made it a favorite of bassists everywhere. Funk, fusion, disco and, of course, modern rock all owe a life debt to the fantastically versatile Jazz Bass. Evolved for today’s musician, the American Professional Jazz Bass combines modern features and materials with Fender’s craftsmanship and expertise to produce a truly contemporary bass.
American Professional Precision Basses
The Precision Bass was a truly revolutionary instrument when it was released in 1951. Not only could bassists finally play with perfect intonation, they could be heard along with the rest of the band. From funk to rock, hip-hop to reggae; all of the music that’s enriched our lives began with the thunderous Precision Bass. Developed by longtime bass pickup master Michael Bump, the brand-new V-Mod split-coil Precision Bass pickup uses a carefully selected blend of alnico magnet types for balanced tone with an authentic Fender voice.
