❌SOLD❌ Fender Elite Precision Bass Sunburst, 2016


Instrument Categories: , , , ,

Updating the classic P-Bass, the Fender Elite Precision Bass adds a bridge Jazz Bass Pickup, active and passive circuitry, a contoured heel and a HiMass bridge.

Quickly adopted after its 1952 introduction, the Precision Bass has become the standard bass for performers in virtually all genres. It has proven itself to be extremely durable, reliable, and versatile and many other builders have based instruments on the P-Bass concepts.

Here we’re looking at a Fender Elite Precision Bass built during 2016 in Corona, California. It is in overall good condition with just a few small finish dents. Fret wear is minimal.

For hardware, Fender Authentic tuners appear at the head with the updated HiMass bridge at the tail. A black pickguard covers the mounts for the Elite Precision Bass pickup. The 4th Generation Noiseless Jazz pickup makes that originally single coil design as quiet as the P-Bass split pickup has been since 1954 when the Precision Bass was first updated.

The controls include a Master Volume, Pan Pot (Pickup Selector), Treble Boost/Cut, Midrange Boost/Cut, Bass Boost/Cut, Passive Tone, and Active/Passive Mini Toggle.

The original Fender molded hard shell case is included.
