The Fender American Standard Precision Bass is the current ‘Standard’ model of the bass whose 1951 introduction changed the way music is presented, performed and recorded.

At the time Leo Fender introduced a bass to match the quickly-accepted Telecaster and Esquire models, bass parts were normally played on acoustic, upright basses. For all of their great points, there are a number of limitations to the upright bass; it’s big, fairly heavy, with a limited amount of volume. And in the hands of unskilled players, tuning could be a bit – imprecise. Leo recognised this, and deliberately added frets to the design and marketed it as the ‘Precision’ bass, referring to the precise pitches now easily available to any player. And of course, with the Precision bass, the only limitation on volume is how much amplifier is available.

The Precision Bass has gone on to be the most recorded instrument design, appearing on countless stages and recordings in almost all genres.
This American Standard Precision Bass was built during 2015 at the Fender plant in Corona, California and is in very clean condition – it even still has its original pickguard plastic covering and sticker. Combining an Alder body and a Maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard, this version also sports improved hardware including Fender® “F” Light-Weight Vintage-Paddle Keys with Tapered Shafts and the new 4-Saddle HiMass™ Vintage bridge. This excellent bridge can be used in either String-Through-Body or Topload configuration – here it is string-through.

This bass is in great shape, with almost no wear to the finish or frets.

All the ‘Case Candy’ is included, but the included hard shell case itself is not original.

More From Fender On The American Standard Precision Bass:

“The U.S.-made flagship of the Precision Bass lineup, as solidly built and powerful sounding as ever.

The latest incarnation of the indestructible workhorse bass that started it all and revolutionized popular music, the American Standard Precision Bass delivers elegantly simple style, elemental build and feel, with pure Fender bass tone from subtle to seismic.

If you could have only one bass guitar, this is it.”
