The Fender American Special Precision Bass guitar in cool candy apple red, combines classic Precision Bass features with some carefully considered appointments to bring a new character to the legendary model.
The body has been crafted using alder, a tonewood that Fender has used extensively for many decades due to its superb tone handling abilities. The quintessential P-Bass sound has benefited from alder's combination of smooth low-end tones, thick mids, and clean highs, which has doubtless helped the P-Bass to become one of the most popular instruments ever made, and whose tones have helped to shape modern musical styles.
The body has been shaped to the Precision Bass profile, with shapely contours that enable it to rest snugly against the body during performances. The double-cutaway shape guarantees easy access to every part of the fingerboard. The body has been completed in a candy apple red, which has been giving a slender and resilient coating of gloss urethane for protection. A 3-ply black pickguard lends greater protection to the body top around the pickups and the control pots.
Fitted to the body is a supple and supportive maple neck, which has been given a slim "C" shape neck profile to make it even slender than before, to enable a faster playing-feel. The back of the neck has been treated with a satin urethane finish to ensure that tackiness or stickiness does not affect playability. Paired with the neck is a 20 medium-jumbo fret maple fingerboard, with black dot position inlays to guide your way. The 9.5" fingerboard radius facilitates smooth string bends and coupled with the neck profile, guarantees a delightfully comfortable playing experience.
The American Special Precision Bass has been equipped with a vintage-style Alnico split single-coil Precision Bass pickup in the middle position, which is controlled by the master volume pot and the new addition of a Greasebucket Tone Circuit (GTC). The inclusion of the GTC enables highs to be rolled back without adding bass to the signal, which means that maintaining a tight-sounding output is made very easy.
The body is fitted with a 4-saddle standard vintage-style bridge with single-groove saddles that makes string adjustment simple - a bonus when it comes to maintaining accurate intonation. The synthetic bone nut ensures optimum string tension, whilst the standard open-gear tuning machines uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision.
The Fender American Standard Precision Bass is a professional's dream. Not only does it look fantastic, but also offers a smooth playing feel, packing incredible tonal power and versatility. You'll also receive a deluxe gig bag, so as soon as the bass arrives you can get out and play.
