The Fender American Elite Precision RW Bass Guitar delivers the classic curves that have made this one of the most popular basses amongst professionals for decades. Whether you're an amateur looking for the bass of their dreams, or a professional who is looking for a reliable touring partner, then this is the model you've been waiting for.

Sophisticated Precision Bass Style

The American Elite Precision Bass is built using alder, a tonewood that Fender favours due to its balanced timbre that allows the bass to be as versatile as you need it to be. From rumbling low-end to articulate highs, with a punchy midrange energy thrown in for good measure, you have a well-rounded output that can be shaped and crafted to meet your demands. The curvature of the top allows the body to rest snugly against you as you play, whilst ensuring a suitable resting position for you picking arm as you perform. The body is coated in a layer of gloss polyurethane, protecting the paintwork and tonewood from changes in temperature and humidity - making it a great bass to hit the road with.

Improved Neck Profile Design

One of the improvements that can be found on the American Elite series is an improved neck profile, taking the shape from the super-slim modern "C" profile is to a "D" profile towards the neck heel. The new profile makes it highly accommodating for your fingers as they explore the neck in its entirety. Posiflex graphite support rods run along the length of the neck to guarantee stability, whilst also resisting warping caused by changes in temperature and humidity.

Married to the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 21 medium jumbo frets that are adorned with pearloid dot position inlays. The smooth satin urethane neck finish gives it a resistance-free playing feel, allowing you to glide along with ease.

New N4 Noiseless Pickups

As part of the 2016 range, Fender redesigned their Noiseless pickups, improving their response to guarantee fat tones without unwanted hissing or buzzing - a must for those who like to perform loud and proud. At your fingertips are a range of controls that allow you to sculpt the tone to exactly how you want it; with treble boost/cut, bass boost/cut, midrange boost, active/passive mini-toggle switch, and master volume control. The tonal versatility of this Elite P bass is impressive, but its ability to master virtually any musical style from funk to country, punk to jazz is remarkable; for session and live musicians it is an absolute gem. Not only that, but a mini toggle switch allows you to switch from a passive output to a whopping 18V active EQ powered output, with additional controls to aid in the sculpting and shaping of your tones.


A 4-saddle high-mass vintage bridge is fitted to ensure the strings' connection to the body is as seamless as possible, whilst Fender lightweight vintage-style tuning machines with tapered shafts maintain tuning integrity throughout each and every performance. The lower wing of the body is protected from nicks and scrapes thanks to the perfectly positioned pickguard.

Each model is supplied with its very own Elite series moulded case to protect your new pride and joy, wherever your music takes you.
