Born in Corona, California, the American Performer Precision Bass delivers the exceptional tone and feel you expect from an authentic Fender - along with new, player-oriented features that make it even more inspiring to play.

The American Performer Precision Bass includes the Yosemite(TM) split-coil Precision Bass middle pickup and a growling Yosemite single-coil Jazz Bass bridge pickup, designed for rich, expressive tones. With flat-staggered pole pieces to increase output and a shellac potting that lets the coils breathe while controlling feedback, Yosemite pickups produce dynamic sounds ideal for any musical situation.

The American Performer Precision Bass also features Greasebucket(TM) tone circuitry that lets you shape your highs without adding bass, preserving your sound. The "Modern C"-shaped neck sports a 9.5"-radius fingerboard that's comfortable for almost any playing style, along with 20 jumbo frets, allowing you to easily express yourself musically.

The neck and body as good as any custom shop bass. American jazz Pick ups and electronics. I love this Guitar. Bought it for it's exceptional live sound but now use it in the studio. I will never sell this bass. Took away 1 star for lack of the fender high mass bridge which I added myself and advise others to Mod as well as it really makes a world of difference not only to sustain and tone , but I feel playability is enhanced as well.

I have bought this bass for live performance and have recently began to use it for studio recording. I am an accomplished musician with a flair for Geddy type complex bass lines. I am very impressed with the recording quality, and playability. I did swap out the stock bridge for a fender high mass which completed my ultra low action set up. This was the only thing missing and why I gave it a 4 rather than a 5 for features. I will never sell this guitar.

Had this for a month now, amazing tone (sounds like a bass should sound with very little effort, and optional sounds if required). This is a high quality, light weight bass, setup almost perfect from the get go (dropped the string height 1/2 turn on each string for my preference). Had three other Fenders in the past (and currently have a Stingray HH), and this will now be my # 1 bass for life. Only wish it came with hard shell case!
