This American Standard Series P Bass for lefties has a vintage body radius and contour for a classic vibe and feel. The body is rendered in premium alder for optimum tone and sustain. Its rosewood or maple fretboard features detailed fret and nut work. The neck is graphite-reinforced and has rolled edges for a broken-in feel from the get-go. HMV Bridge (high mass vintage) increases sustain, provides punchier tone, beefier looking plates and 3/8" diameter vintage saddles. String height adjustment screws have nylon patches for a tight fit that won't vibrate loose.

The left-handed Fender bass has a 12-gauge cold rolled steel plate machined brass backstop that increases mass and enhances top end. Socket head intonation screws are engineered for a tighter fit, and are now more stable. Features Fender Design tuning keys. They work great and are 30% lighter, minimizing neck dip. Classic 20:1 tuning ratio, cast zinc with aluminum string posts and mounting nuts, and steel clovers. Brass worm gears, steel worm drives.

With a thinner undercoat, the American Standard P Bass body breathes easier and has improved sound (more wood influence). Neck pocket paint buildup has been reduced by 40%, greatly improving the wood to wood connection/reaction.

The included SKB rectangular design case, exclusive to Fender, has TSA recognized and accepted locks. Fiberglass reinforced nylon trigger release latching system, indestructible cushioned rubber over-molded handle with flush lock out. Injection molded feet and exclusive arched stacking system.

I can't put it down

Comments about Fender American Standard P Bass Left-Handed:

I ordered this bass from Guitar Center and had it mailed to my house because it was lefty and they didn't have one in stock. took 4 days with the 2nd day air. it was packed well. pulled out the case and opened it...WOW! played very nice right out of the box. great neck~! almost didn't need a set up but i took it in anyhow. fret work is very nice. The whole bass is pretty light too. i got the black with the rosewood fretboard. i originally wanted the sunburst but i'm glad i went with the black. Swapped out the pickguard for a tortoise shell one. looks hott~! it plays wonderfully and i cant put it down. the tone makes any amp sound better. it sounds mean and tough! the bridge is nice and beefy. this bass has taken my playing to the next level because it play so easily so i never put it down. also threw some fender strap locks on it. it doesnt need new pickups, they sound awesome. very glossy headstock face. the whole bass really shines in sound, playability and looks. they play nice out of the box but, they're perfect after a set up. i love it

Lefty P Bass

By Chris Steiner

from Silver Lake, OH

Comments about Fender American Standard P Bass Left-Handed:

I've been playing an ancient Precision since the mid -60's. It's a right handed model which I turned around to play left handed.I love this vintage bass but because it's turned around it's heavy & awkward.I decided to get a left handed American Standard P Bass so I could get better balance & proper use of the cut away's so I could get the higher notes. I took this left handed model & got the nut changed & reversed the strings & it plays great. It's balanced great, nice punchy tone, good neck action. I'm very happy with it. I should have done this sooner. I got the black body with rosewood neck. This was sent in really bad winter weather & still got here in good time & in good shape. It's been a good expierince all the way around.
