Comments about Fender American Standard Precision Bass with Rosewood Fingerboard:

The Fender American Standard Jazz Base is just what the name says. It has set the standard for decades. For my first bass I wanted a standard reliable 4 string and that is exactly what I got.

    I play in a Classic rock band and this guitar covers it all. Nice full tone, awesome action and versatility. 3 times the tone of my Ibanez.

      Use for practice and worship. This thing is incredible and is definitely capable of doing anything. It'd be great for tracking or really anything you need a solid bass for. I'm in love with this bass.

        Comments about Fender American Standard Precision Bass with Rosewood Fingerboard:

        Purchased a lot of gear from Guitar Center. Then I bought this three tone AS P Base. I play though a GK MB Fusion 800 and GK CX 410 Speaker. I could not be more pleased with any Bass than I am with this one. It gives me "the" sound. Cannot describe it, but pick one up, play it and you will know exactly what I mean. Perfectly set up when I picked it up. Beautiful instrument.

          Comments about Fender American Standard Precision Bass with Rosewood Fingerboard:

          This is the fourth bass I currently own. I also have a Rickenbacker 4003, a Warwick Corvette Standard fretless, and a Hofner President 5005, the "Stu Sutcliff" bass. These 3 are all great basses, but I kept itching for a P-Bass--even though I'd never actually played one. (I am a multi-instrumentalist, and the bass is not my main instrument.)

          So two days ago my P-Bass arrived. Holy moly!! It is simply amazing. The word everybody always uses for the P-Bass sound is "growl"--and I see why. The sound is rich and fat and physical, like a bass should be. Super deep thumping notes that slap you in the sternum, but are at the same time bright and snappy (depending, of course, on how you set your tone controls on the bass and the amp). I still love my 4003, and write poetry to it and all that...but man alive, this P-Bass is a beast. I guess I'd have to say the P-Bass is the more versatile instrument; to my ears, the Ric kind of just does that one Ric sound supremely well, while the P-Bass sound will just fit into more musical situations. If I had to have just one bass, it would probably be the Precision.

          Comments about Fender American Standard Precision Bass with Rosewood Fingerboard:

          4 strings, one split pickup, one volume and one tone control. What more do you need? Classic 3 tone sunburst finish, 34" scale neck, 20 medium jumbo frets, 1 5/8" nut, made in Corona, California. Still the ultimate in tone and playability just the way Leo Fender designed it. Duplicated by almost every other maker of bass guitars in some form or fashion but never equaled. In the words of the great Barry White, "the first, the last, my everything". James Jamerson, Duck Dunn, Pino Palladino, Sean Hurley, Roger Waters... With either flats or round wounds, the tone is sublime. Perfect setup right out of the box. Love this bass. Great job Guitar Center.

          Quite surprised at the quality!

          Comments about Fender American Standard Precision Bass with Rosewood Fingerboard:

          I've always been one that thought the American Fenders were over priced and there was little, if any difference between them and a Mexican or Japan one, of which I own one of each. I've got to say that I was mistaken. It's the little things that make the difference in the American. The lighter, more responsive tuners, flawless fit and finish, fingerboard wood selection, fretwork. Even the responsiveness of the volume and tone pots is smoother and more gradual, indicating higher quality pots and wiring. As well as the quietness of the electronics when not being played, no hum or hiss. Needless to say, those are all things (except for wood selection) that can be worked out and upgraded on the foreign models, which I've done to both of mine to get them where I wanted them. But if you want an out of the box, finely finished instrument, the American is the way to go. I am very pleased with this bass. After much deliberation, I bought the Mystic Blue and am very glad I did. The pictures don't do this color justice, it's beautiful with a heavy metal flake that isn't so noticeable in the advertising photos. It's pretty striking against the white pickguard, I'm putting on a white perloid guard which I think will look incredible. Also to my surprise, this bass came very well set up. All I had to do was adjust the intonation of the E string a little. Of course the most important thing is tone, and this bass has it nailed with the 60's custom shop pickup, sounds awesome. I do wish Fender would include strap locks, I was under the impression that they did but maybe that's only the deluxe models. The hardshell case is very high quality also, heavy but we'll built. Overall, this package gets an A+ rating from me.

            Comments about Fender American Standard Precision Bass with Rosewood Fingerboard:

            I traded in a Fender Precision Bass to get this American Standard Precision bass, and I wasn't prepared for the improvement in tone, quality, sustain, and playability that you get for just slightly over twice the money. I wish I had just gotten the AS version in the first place, but I guess you have to try things out. I wasn't sure I'd get serious about the bass, because I'm primarily a drummer and a guitarist. But now that I have this bass I could get some gigs with it because the thing itself sounds so good.
