Fender American Elite Precision Bass (Ash) - Natural / Maple
Elite by name. Elite by nature. This Ash bodied Precision is the ultimate Fender bass with its 4th generation noiseless and Elite P pickup configuration, 18v Preamp with 3 band EQ and high performance hardware.
Introducing the Fender American Elite Precision Bass, here in Natural with a Maple neck. This exquisite bass guitar takes decades of Fender tonal heritage and building techniques and brings them into the 21st century. For those bassists who are looking for a truly reliable, great sounding and superior quality instrument the Elite Precision Bass is the epitome of Fender craftsmanship.
This American Elite model takes inspiration from the original P bass design in terms of its comfortable, ergonomic contoured Alder body but looks to the future with the modern, highly playable C to D shape Maple neck. Hidden inside in neck are Posiflex graphite support rods that run the length of the neck which help add stability to the neck while resisting temperature and humidity induced warping.
Offering the traditional 34" 21 medium jumbo fret fingerboard bassists will instantly feel at home with this Elite P bass, also providing that familiar vintage look is the improved, high performance Fender Light-Weight Vintage-Paddle Key tuners.
This really is a bass that offers an extremely versatile tonal specification for almost any application. The fat sounding Elite Precision pickup is joined by Fender's very own 4th generation noiseless Jazz pickup (get noise-free performance with authentic vintage-style) at the bridge, for the ultimate combination of tone. In addition, the onboard 18-volt 3-band EQ preamp will allow players access to a wide range of tones.
Another key spec of this modern classic is its HiMass Vintage bridge. This is a revolutionary bridge that has been designed to increase note attack and resonance for those massive basslines as well as boosting the punch of every note and allowing for superb sustain. It even has the ability for the player to choose between top-load or strings-thru-body stringing!
