Fender American Professional Precision Bass

 

Bass—it’s where rhythm meets melody, creating a righteous groove that forces you to move with it. Without the Fender Precision Bass, the original electric bass, dance floors everywhere would be empty. As music evolves, our instruments change in lockstep; the end result is today’s version of this seminal instrument—the American Professional Precision Bass.

V-Mod Pickups
V-MOD PICKUPS

V-Mod Precision Bass pickups are modified versions of our classic vintage pickup designs. Packed with the fundamental Fender bass sound you know and love, these split-coil pickups use alnico 5 magnets on the treble side and alnico 2 on the bass side to deliver classic tone with all the vintage warmth and crisp, clear sound that made Fender a legend.

’63 P Bass® Neck Profile
’63 P BASS® NECK PROFILE

Considered by many to be the gold standard of bass neck profiles, American Professional Precision Bass guitars use the ‘63 P Bass® neck profile. The satin finish on the back of the neck provides a smooth fret-hand feel.

Narrow-Tall Frets
NARROW-TALL FRETS

Narrow-tall frets are taller and narrower than their medium jumbo cousins, making them especially effective for bending notes and playing chords up the neck with perfect intonation.

New Fluted-Shaft Tuning Machines
NEW FLUTED-SHAFT TUNING MACHINES

Wider at the top than the bottom, the fluted shafts force the string windings downward and keep them tight, resulting in a sharper and consistent break angle over the nut, creating increased sustain and better tuning stability.

Posiflex™ Graphite Rods
POSIFLEX™ GRAPHITE RODS

All American Professional bass necks incorporate Posiflex graphite rods to reinforce against movement that can occur with fluctuations the environment. Embedded beneath the fingerboard, they improve reliability on the road, in the studio or in your home.

Bone Nut
BONE NUT

An original-era Fender design element, a bone nut contributes to superior tone and performance. Many players consider bone nuts to be more “organic” sounding.
