The Fender American Elite Precision Bass Guitar in Ocean Turquoise combines classic design with ground-breaking technology to create a masterful instrument that both amateurs and professionals will adore. Whatever style of music that you perform, the Precision Bass is adaptable and ready for action straight out of the box. Whether you're jamming with friends at your local or touring the world, the American Elite series of models gets the job done in style.
Sleek Precision Bass style
The body of the American Elite Precision Bass has been crafted using alder, a Fender favourite due to its easy workability combined with balanced timbre, and lightweight feel. The softly bevelled edges and ergonomically designed curves enables the Precision Bass to rest snugly against your body during performances. The deep double-cutaway profile enables the upper frets to be reached with ease, opening up the fingerboard in its entirety. The glorious ocean turquoise paint job is protected by a slender yet resilient layer of gloss polyurethane.
Fast-playing neck design
Connected to the body via a 5-bolt asymmetrical joint is a sturdy maple neck. Shaped with a compound back shape to the modern "C" to "D" profile, the neck offers a consistent feel from headstock to heel. The cutaway heel design complements the double-cutaway body profile to enhance playing comfort. The truss rod adjustment wheel makes it easy to adjust the neck relief to prevent buckling or warping from affecting string action.
Married to the neck is a crisp maple fingerboard, which is home to 21 medium-jumbo frets that are adorned with black pearloid dot position inlays. The smooth satin urethane neck finish prevents the build-up of stickiness so that your hand can glide along freely. The 9.5- to 14-inch radius accommodates smooth string bends and seamless transitions across each string for a flowing playability.
N4 Noiseless Pickups
The Fender American Elite Precision Bass is equipped with a pair of 4th Generation Noiseless pickups, adhering to the classic PJ configuration - in the middle position is an Elite Precision Bass split single-coil, whilst in the bridge position is an Elite Jazz Bass single-coil.
Each model has a built-in active 18-volt preamp to increase headroom for a smooth transient response, whilst guaranteeing that noise is kept to a minimum. The control layout consists of a master volume pot, a pan pot that acts as a pickup selector, and an active/passive mini-toggle switch. A trio of EQ pots (Treble/Midrange/Bass) enable you to sculpt your tone with incredible dexterity, giving you a huge arsenal of tones to play with.
The body is home to Fender's 4-saddle hi-mass vintage bridge, which anchors each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain. Fender "F" lightweight vintage-paddle key tuning machines with tapered shafts uphold tuning integrity precisely throughout the most demanding of sets. Everything about the American Elite series lives up to its name, and no matter what you throw at this beauty, it will keep coming back for more.
