2018 Fender American Professional P-Bass (5 String)

$1,195.00

The New Standard in American 5-string Precision

The Fender Precision Bass is the electric bass guitar that started it all. This American Professional Precision Bass is the latest incarnation of that ground-breaking instrument. Designed from the ground up to offer you an ideal gigging and recording instrument, the American Professional Precision Bass boasts a bevy of player-friendly features. Your hand will wrap comfortably around the ’63 P Bass neck contour, while you enjoy the blend of power and old-school low end delivered by the V-Mod single-coil pickup. The ubiquitous American Professional P Bass — better than ever!

One of the best necks in the business

Many bass players agree that 1963 P Basses boast some of the best necks ever made. Fender is re-creating the original profile in a 5-string for the American Professional Precision V. It fills your hand perfectly while still allowing you to move up and down the fretboard with ease. The neck’s satin finish gives the feeling of a well-worked vintage instrument, while its 9.5″ fretboard radius is more akin to what you’ll find on more modern designs. And a set of Posiflex graphite rods is installed to keep the neck stable and straight — a very popular addition here at Sweetwater.

Simple and effective electronics

Precision basses have one of the most electronically straightforward designs out there. Yet their single-pickup, 2-knob setup has been responsible for a wide array of some of the most legendary bass tones in history. The American Professional Precision Bass V sticks close to its heritage with a V-Mod single-coil pickup. Designed by pickup guru Tim Shaw, this single-coil exhibits the warm and natural tones of vintage pickups, while delivering the clarity and dynamic range of some of today’s best designs.
