Fender Player Precision Bass - Maple Fingerboard
The Fender Player Precision Bass carries on the legend of Leo Fender's classic bass guitar. With its roots dating back to the 1950s and and clearly going as strong as ever, the P Bass just works!
From rock to punk, to funk to reggae, the Fender P Bass is a perfect fit for a multitude of genres. The legendary, thunderous, fat warm tone of the P Bass fits into the mix of any band, gels it all together whilst simultaneously driving the music along! The biggest contribution to its tone is due to the placement (in the sweet spot) of the split-coil pickup. Fender have loaded the Player Series P Bass with a classic sounding pickup, giving players instant access to that much loved tone. The pickup is wired through the traditional single volume and tone control, which though simple, still gives access to a selection of tonal options.
Construction wise, the Fender Player Precision Bass utilizes an alder body that is complimented with a classic style scratchplate. The highly playable maple neck has a comfortable modern C shape profile and is topped with 9.5" radius fingerboard set with 20 medium jumbo frets.
Other features include the 4-saddle bridge and open-gear chrome tuners, for solid tuning stability, and a vintage style 50s spaghetti Fender logo on the headstock.
The aren't many basses that you can truly class as legendary, but the P Bass is one. Thanks to its affordable price point the Fender Player P Bass opens the door for players to get some of that "P" goodness, both in looks and sound, without breaking the bank.
