There's nothing more classic than a Fender electric bass, and the Player Precision Bass is as authentic as it gets - genuine Fender style and the rumbling, seismic sound that spawned a thousand imitations. With its smooth playing feel and spotlight-ready style, this thunderous bass is ready to enter the studio or prowl the stage and help show the world your creative vision.

The fat, punchy Player Series split-coil Precision Bass middle pickup is packed with legendary Fender bass tone, turned up to 11 for modern ears. Master volume and tone controls are close to hand to shape the pickup's powerful voice so you can easily craft your sound. The "Modern C"-shaped maple neck's hosts a 9.5"-radius fingerboard with 20 medium-jumbo frets that are ideal for almost any playing style, while the 4-saddle bridge is engineered for accurate intonation and easy action adjustment so you can personalize the feel to your playing style and taste.

Other features include a 3-ply pickguard, synthetic bone nut, vintage-style disc string trees, open-gear tuning machines and a four-bolt "F"- stamped neck plate that marks this instrument as the real deal - as Fender as it gets. A modern classic with genuine Fender sound, style and feel, the Player Precision Bass is ready to pump out some serious low end.

These are great sounding basses. Very punchy low end as a p-bass should be. My only complaint is that the knobs keep falling off. Even after cranking the screws on them, they tend to slip off eventually. Not the end of the world but it is kind of annoying. But it feels great to play. Every time I look at it, I want to pick it up and play it. [editor note, you have to have the screw on those knobs in just the right place (where the slot is) and they'll stay tight. Or try inserting a flat screwdriver into the slot to widen it just a bit]

After playing bass for 44 years, this is my first Fender Precision bass. I cannot believe I waited this long, this is such a fantastic bass I can't believe I own it let alone paid under $1,000 for it. As I bought it in the middle of winter and the weather was very cold, the fret ends were poking out of bit but John Molnar at the Langley store did a fantastic fret filing job for me and now it is like butter. I've also added a set of Labella Gold/White Tapewound strings and wow, THIS is what a Fender bass should sound like and I cannot imagine going back to roundwound strings on this bass! Do yourself a favor and go by this bass while you can it will be the best money you've ever spent!

I test played this alongside a mustang bass and a squier vintage modified PJ bass. Despite the difference in price I felt the sound and feel of the player P bass was well worth the added cost. The pickup has great definition and warmth, and the overall construction is great! Feels like a quality instrument from the bridge to the tuners. The buttercream finish is definitely something different and looks amazing. I think I'll be keeping this one for a while!
