The Fender 2017 American Pro Precision Bass RW Bass Guitar offers bassists a fantastic model for hitting the studio or taking to the stage with. Whether you're creating elegant or thunderous basslines, your tone will be infused with warmth and energy. As we've come to expect from the Precision Bass, it is a dream to perform with, and has been the weapon of choice for professionals around the world since its introduction back in 1951. From funk to rock, hip-hop to heavy metal, reggae to soul, the Precision Bass has lent itself to shaping the musical landscape for decades.
Elegant double-cutaway body
Taking on the design and form of those that have gone before it, the 2017 American Pro P Bass is shaped to a deep double-cutaway body profile. The beauty of this design lies in its exceptionally comfortable playing feel. The body is crafted using alder, a lightweight and tonally balanced tonewood that is a joy to wield. The body has been finished using gloss polyurethane, giving the paintwork protection against premature wear.
Maple neck with "1963 C" profile
Fitted to the body is a maple neck with 34-inch scale length and classic "1963 C" profile that increases playing comfort. The '63 P Bass neck profile is widely regarded as one of the most accommodating of neck profiles, whilst a satin finish along the back of the neck creates a smooth fret-hand feel. Posiflex graphite rods run along the entire length of the neck to improve stability and resistance to warping.
Married to the neck is a responsive rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 20 narrow-tall frets with dot position inlays to guide your way in style. The narrow-tall frets are designed to make them more effecting when executing string bends and playing chord further along the neck with exceptional intonation.
V-Mod Precision Bass pickups
The 2017 American Pro P Bass is equipped with the newly designed V-Mod pickups, which were built by legendary bass pickup master Michael Bump. Taking cues from classic split single-coil pickups, the V-Mod produces lush, high-output tones with smooth Fender warmth and crisp articulation across every note. Control comes in the form of knurled flat-top knobs, which allow you to attenuate Master Volume and Master Tone controls.
The headstock is home to redesigned tuning machines in the form of Fender lightweight vintage-style keys with tapered shafts, which work dutifully to preserve tuning integrity and increase sustain. The strings continue their journey towards the body via the bone nut, meeting the 4-saddle HiMass vintage bridge to create a seamless connection with the body. The bridge offers a vintage aesthetic whilst ensuring considerable stability.
Each new Fender 2017 American Pro Precision Bass RW Bass Guitar is supplied with an Elite moulded case that cradles your pride and joy for maximum protection. TSA latches increase security, whilst the outer casing it designed to be stacked for easy storage and transportation.
