    Comments about Fender American Standard Precision Bass with Maple Fingerboard:

    I've been playing for awhile and owned a Precision back in the 70's 80's. I sold it and regreted it since. I finally came back to the American Standard and I couldn't love it more. Nothing else has the tone and feel. The bass is solid and the electronics are simple but offer all you need. I am looking forward to playing this for a long time.

    Comments about Fender American Standard Precision Bass with Maple Fingerboard:

    I've been playing bass for awhile. Mostly just jam with friends for fun anymore. I owned an American P-Bass back in the 70's and have hated that I sold it ever since. Finally decided to invest in a new one. I love it, nothing can match the tone or the feel. It is the gold standard everything else should be measured by.

      Comments about Fender American Standard Precision Bass with Maple Fingerboard:

      4 years ago I reviewed this bass, and now I'm back with an update on my weapon of bass destruction! After gigging outdoors for two years, being dropped more than once, being strung BEAD back to EADG, and seeing me n00d, this bass hasn't lost any characteristics it had when I first picked her up. This finish at the forearm contour is beginning to wear, which is perfect! The little dings add personality, and after falling, the neck has no issues, has not bent wrong or warped in anyway. This bass is a TANK! Again, I will say my finish is the now discontinued Candy Cola, and it still sparkles and glimmers when light hits it. The intonation has remained constantly perfect to my standards, and the pickups have this growl and tone I haven't heard on another American Standard since 2012 when the world almost ended! I string her with DR Fat Beams, and I have to say, my bass hasn't sounded better, especially with these strings. Stay traditional people, stay classy, invest in Americas economy and go the extra mile and purchase an American Standard, you won't regret it.

      This guitar is flawless in every way. When it came in Guitar Center did a few minor adjustments to it. The tone quality is unreal, it plays so smooth. I play small gigs and anybody that knows anything about quality, definitely knows what an Fender American Standard P bass is

      Setting a new standard

      About Me Experienced

      Comments about Fender American Standard Precision Bass with Maple Fingerboard:

      Got this bass on Wednesday(01/14/15) & it's better than I expected,& the custom shop pickups just make this bass even better. I was worried about the weight but didn't need to be, it's so light and comfortable and feels nice on your knee or a strap. My only very small gripe is that at this price it should have come with straplocks as standard. I am hoping that this will be my last bass guitar that I buy it's fantastic.

          Comments about Fender American Standard Precision Bass with Maple Fingerboard:

          I have been playing a Spector Euro 4lx for almost 4 years. its a fancy bass with A P/J EMJ Active pickups.I've been using the bridge pickup alot more than the neck and would never turn the bridge pickup all the way down and let the neck pickup rock by itself. After a couple of battery misshaps I've decided I've had enough and decided to get a secondary simple and classic backup bass I wanted a modest bass to use in rehearsals to minimize the chance that the battery on my Spector would die on me during importent gigs . picking up a precision bass never crossed my mind since it had a little negative stereotyps among "modern" bass players.
          I played a few Jazz basses and disliked them all. it felt way to cocky and arrogant. I picked up this precision and could't put it down. It broke every negative stereotype that jazz musician's had about this bass. it fits every style that I play (live): R&B seesions,a 12 piece Salsa orchestra and jazz bands not to mention rock. It has a very deep and soulful sound. when you reach the high note on your'e solo it gives you a smooth silky tone that might remind playing with a bow. I wanted to get a bass just for small sessions and it ended up being a personal favorite to use on gigs and recordings.

              Just purchased the 2012 standard P bass bought it used, when I received the bass it looks brand new the fine scratches on the body that were shown in the pictures are no longer visible the rest of the bass looks great. The setup is perfect it has a great feel to it. Also the case is brand new, came with a strap, cord, hex tools and cleaning cloth.
