Fender American Pro P Bass - Rosewood Fingerboard
Introducing the Fender American Pro P Bass. The USA Fender Precision Bass is arguably the most famous, recognisable bass in music history and has been rumbling and grooving from day one back in the 50s. This updated version straight from Fenders exciting American Professional Series takes that timeless shape and design and turbo charges it with a blend of retro and modern specifications for the most complete P bass to date.
From hip-hop to reggae, rock to funk, the P bass has graced all stages and genres and for very good reason. The beating heart of this modernised American Professional Series P bass is the impressive V-mod split coil developed by bass pickup specialist Michael Bump. What makes this particular Precision bass pickup special is the way that it has been crafted using a select blend of various alnico magnet types in order to balance out the tone and retain that those authentic Fender tonal qualities.
Many pro bassists will swear by their P basses once falling in love with their universal neck profiles that offer total comfort, playability and familiarity, with the 1963 'Golden' Precision profile being the sought after holy grail. Fender have decided to match this neck profile on the American Pro model so players can again access that neck that just simply 'feels right' while also implementing narrow-tall frets for added familiarity and perfect intonation.
Internally this American Pro Precision benefits from a modern Posiflex graphite support rod that runs the length of its neck. This feature exists to offer superb support and stability to the neck itself while also stopping any nasty warping. Looking past the neck and onto the headstock you will notice a tuning head revamp with improved fluted shaft tuners. These are better at maintaining the perfect break angle over the nut, keeping string windings tight and improving tuning stability and sustain.
The best of yesterday and today, the American Professional Precision Bass is the latest form of electric inspiration from Fender. Step up and stake your claim to a legend.
