Comments from customers who bought this item:
Classic Fender Style & Tone
The Standard Precision Bass embodies the very spirit of the classic Fender tone and style, featuring the same design as its predecessors. Its single standard split-coil pickup delivers the timeless sonic boom of the precision bass, delivering crystal clear tones with plenty of punch and power many fans of Fender love. Its '70s-style headstock logo and classic opened gear tuners adds to the classic style of the bass. The synthetic bone nut helps improve resonance, adding extra brightness to the overall tonality.
A Classic Alder Body
The Precision Bass features a classic alder body, producing a resonant and balanced tone with plenty of clarity. It also features a comfortably light weight, letting you play all night long without straining your shoulders. The tonewood provides a decent amount of sustain, creating bright, sizzling highs, excellently rounded lows, and beefy mids. Fender have used alder as their tonewood of choice since the 1950s, as the balanced response and slight upper middle definition makes it perfect for rock and blues playing.
Maple Neck & Maple Fingerboard
The Fender's maple neck provides bright tonal characteristics, tightening up the sound and giving it plenty of cut. The maple delivers a powerfully sharp punch when the strings are hit hard, whilst still retaining its clarity to allow each note to sing. The neck and fingerboard combination provide the guitar with sparkling, sizzling highs, a thick, firm low end, and an open midrange with a snappy attack.
