Roger Waters. What can you say. This bass is as straight foward and simple as the man himself. The Seymor Duncan pickups provide a very solid gut thumping bottom, as well as giving a punchy mid and ear burning high end at the same time. I was very surprised to see that this bass was made in Mexico. It is constructed very well. The finish on mine is virtually flawless. I love the contrast between the all black body and hardware with the natural finish of the hard maple neck. I will probably play this guitar sparingly as fender necks are just a bit thick and wide for my stubs. But will fight to play any Floyd on it. The monster head stock and open gear shamrock tuners contribute to this greatly. As for durability, I'll have to get back to you on that. Have only had it a short time. But it has the feel of an instrument that will take a beating and keep on repeating. If you have wanted a nice Fender bass for a really good price, I would suggest that you pick this one up. It is a no frills, great looking, solid feeling, great sounding bass.

I've purchased two basses online in the past month, and they've both gone back because of quality issues. It seems that buying guitars sight unseen is not a good idea, and that quality control is a problem with both American and Mexican manufacturing. In this case, the neck was drilled out incorrectly, and is badly misaligned as a result. It is not repairable. The brass nut is also cut incorrectly, and doesn't grab the strings firmly enough. The tone on this guitar is adversely affected by a cheap bridge and an off-center string tree. The only good thing about this bass is the finish, which I admit is very nice. This bass is not worth the money, or even half what I paid. I'm not that hard to please really, I just want a guitar that is free of manufacturing defects, and so far that has proven impossible. Shocking.

Comments about Fender Roger Waters Precision Bass:

I just got this bass this week so I am still in a "new bass" mode with it. My main is a 73 P and I got this so I will stop playing it 5-8 hours a day. This is meant to be my daily play machine. I love this bass. The neck is a thick C and it is wider at the nut than my 73. It is not as "fat" as my 73 and it does not hti my hand the same way. That is the only real gripe I have about it. Some have said the SD QP SB3 pickups are too bassy...well my band LOVES the too bassy feel. The pickups are not as warm as my 73 BUT the footprint of them and the electronics is MUCH wider. This is a bass that can go from punk to motown easily. I am thinking about slapping a set of cobalt flatwounds on it just to see.

        Comments about Fender Roger Waters Precision Bass:

        The action on this bass is just awesome. The sound speaks for itself. The pick guard has a removable Rodger Watters layer. Its kinda too cool to remove but I will eventually. This bass truly does replicate the Watters sound with the right set up. (strings) It can be looked up on Google. Don't hesitate if your looking at this instrument, it wont disappoint.

          Comments about Fender Roger Waters Precision Bass:

          I love the look, feel, fit, finish and sound of this bass BUT whoever set it up at the factory did a poor job. The action was all out and the adjusters on the bridge were all crooked and out of whack! Once i got that all straightened out including the frett buzz it now plays and sounds great. I really do love this bass. It deserves 5 stars but when you pay this much you would expect that the initial set up would be better when you get it. It wasn't so it loses a star.

          Great Bass Low Price

          By DAVE HANSEN

          from Orland Park, IL

          Comments about Fender Roger Waters Precision Bass:

          Ive had this bass for almost a year now. I must say that it certainly makes its presence known in the band Im in (I play it through a B200 ACOUSTIC half stack). This bass can take a beating too. Im constantly jumping around with it at shows and its been knocked into a drum symbol on some occasions by mistake and still not a blemish. Im surprised at how well it stays in tune as well. (I always see the guitarists tuning up every couple songs). With this bass I just have to check the tuning before each set and Im good to go for the night! I have gotten many compliments on how the bass looks as well. The only problem that I have ever had with it is that the saddle on the E string came loose twice during transportation. Bottom line, if your looking for a solid bass with balls in the low end and great presence in the mids and highs, this would be the bass for you!

          Roger Water Precision Bass

          By Connor Craigie

          from Canada

          Comments about Fender Roger Waters Precision Bass:

          What a great bass. I walked into the music store with my heart set on a six string bass. I saw this beauty and figured to heck with the six, this is better. The neck is wider, but more thin than my other p bass (Squier Classic Vibe 50's). The pickup sticker on it can come off and there is no Seymour Duncan Basslines logo on the pickups. The brass nut assds tons of sustain and the pickups sound amazing. I replaced to stock strings with some GHS Brite Flats and it has the perfect Waters sound. I gave it an eight in features because it only has volume and tone, but what more do you need? The quality is also an eight because the frets were sticking out a bit, but I live in a dry climate, so that's bound to happen. I got it at a great price too (800$). Overall it's an amazing bass. Sounds great, feels great, and it looks great.

          By Scott

          from Bremerton, Washington

          Comments about Fender Roger Waters Precision Bass:

          This is everything that I have been looking for in a bass. The feel, the tone, to me what I want in a bass. I can't get over how well it plays and sounds. For me there is no other bass that even comes close to this. I think Fender did an awesome job and would recommed this bass to anyone from the beginner to professional.

          Worthy of the Roger Waters name

          By Matt-aQ7c3

          from Hollywood, CA

          Comments about Fender Roger Waters Precision Bass:

          I saw the description on this website. Being greatly influenced by Roger Waters I had to find out more. By the description it seemed to be the perfect bass in my opinion. One day I found one at the local SA shop in Hollywood and had to try it out. The fit and finish on the neck and body qualifies as perfect in my book. Love the sheen and feel! The brass nut gave a sonic plus to open string playing that I could never imagine! The Basslines Quarter-Pound pick up not only delivered the perfect bass sound spectrum but also renewed my faith in passive pick-ups. The black hardware gave it a great overall look and did not detract from the sound. Then came the deal-breaker; the frets were advertised as being "medium-jumbo". They were not. They were the thin "vintage style" that I can respect if I did not play with round wound strings. Those frets don't last two years with my string choice and style of playing, so back on the rack it went. I may re-consider one day, because for the price it is so close to being the perfect Precision bass. For now let's just say I'm sitting on the fence, leaning toward making the plunge. There is every possibility that I will get over myself and just get the damn thing. We'll see.

          Comments about Fender Roger Waters Precision Bass:

          The Fender Roger Waters bass is light, very attractive, fast neck and sounds awesome. I like the smaller vintage frets. The Duncans are well defined and loud. The neck has made it through two seasons with no change. I love this bass!
