Fender American Elite Precision Bass - 3-Color Sunburst With Ebony Fingerboard
Fender's American Elite Precision Bass provides players with a classic bass that's updated for modern playing styles and techniques. You'll get the familiar round lows and aggressive mids that Precision Basses are known for, without the 60-cycle hum thanks to a 4th-generation Noiseless single-coil in the bridge and an Elite P Bass in the neck. An 18-volt active preamp adds a 3-band EQ and an active/passive switch. And a 9.5"–14" compound-radius fretboard makes the American Elite Precision Bass effortless to play.
Onboard the American Elite Precision Bass is a duo of Fender single-coil pickups. A split Elite P Bass pickup in the neck and a 4th-generation Noiseless J-style in the bridge deliver the Precision Bass's familiar punch and growl with more sonic options. But the Noiseless circuitry eliminates unwanted signal noise and hum, making the bass ideal for live performance and recording. The 3-band active preamp adds wide-ranging tonal control with a switch to go passive if you so choose. And the alder and maple construction with an ebony fingerboard is a tried-and-true combination that has proven itself for decades.
Fender Precision Basses have been known for their thick, sustaining neck profiles since their introduction. Their chunkier feel has made them a favorite of countless bassists worldwide. The American Elite Precision Bass continues the tradition with a comfortable contour that morphs from a "C" to "D" profile as you move up the neck. And the 9.5"–14" compound fretboard radius ensures comfort whether you're holding down the low end or making melodic lead statements. This neck gives you the look and feel of a well-broken-in bass as soon as you open the case.
Whether you play sitting or standing, you'll appreciate the comfort of the American Elite Precision Bass's belly and arm contours. A Fender HiMass vintage-style bridge anchors the strings either through the body or in a top-load configuration. Adjusting the neck relief couldn't be easier due to the truss-rod adjustment wheel located at the butt end of the neck.
