Comfortable P-Bass body
The Fender American Performer Precision Bass is shaped to the divine double-cutaway body that we all love. The elegant curves of the body and slender depth establish a figure-hugging playing feel and is perfect for strutting your stuff on stage with. Crafted using lightweight alder, the P Bass delivers a confident energy from low to high for bouncing basslines.
Sleek neck profile
Connected to the Precision Bass body is a supple and supportive maple neck, which is shaped to the modern "C" profile that allows it to sit sweetly in the hand. The generous 34-inch scale is just right, not too long as to cause overstretching but long enough to ensure that the strings resonate to the their fullest. Married to the neck is a rosewood fingerboard, which promotes a warm response from every note. You'll find 20 medium jumbo frets to navigate and dot position inlays to guide your way. The curvy 9.5-inch fingerboard radius allows your fingers to shift seamlessly from fret to fret across all four strings. The synthetic bone nut ensures that all strings remain stable and secure in their position, whilst the standard truss rod enables ready adjustment when necessary.
The American Performer Precision Bass is equipped with Fender's Yosemite pickups in a PJ configuration. You'll find a split single-coil Precision Bass pickup in the middle position and a Jazz Bass single-coil pickup in the bridge position. They're home to Alnico 5 magnets for a meatier response, whilst Formvar-coated wiring optimises definition to round out the response beautifully. At your disposal there are independent volume controls for each pickup, as well as a master tone pot with Greasebucket tone circuitry. Greasebucket circuitry allows highs to be rolled off without sacrificing gain to bolster low-end growl. Whatever style of music you're taking on from rock to funk, country to punk, the Precision Bass is up for anything and everything.
The body is home to a 4-saddle vintage-style bridge with steel saddles, which anchors each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain throughout the most demanding of performances. The headstock is home to Fender "F" light-weight vintage-paddle keys with tapered shafts for seamless adjustment and airtight consistency. If you're looking for a professional-level tour-ready model that won't break the bank, it doesn't get much better than the Fender American Performer Precision Bass Guitar.
