Standard P-Bass, Maple Fretboard -- Buy It!

By Thomas Braun

from Susanville, CA

Comments about Fender Standard Precision Bass Guitar:

I had wanted this bass for a long time. It's the same model (brown sunburst; maple fretboard) that John Entwistle played with the Who in the glory days of 1969-70, and I always loved the Ox's sound. Ordered at Reno, NV Guitar Center on New Year's Eve, 2012. Store personnel very helpful, as I traded in some used gear and paid the difference. Delivered to my home by UPS four business days later, which was acceptable, given the New Year's Day holiday intervening. Bass arrived in fine shape, no scratches or defects. Playable right out of the box; needed only a slight bridge adjustment for intonation. Neck and fretboard incredibly smooth; frets well-finished, no protruding metal. Well-balanced; I can play this bass for hours without fatigue. Sounds amazing; the P-Bass has only one sound, but it's THE sound. Reliability: Fender's reputation speaks for itself; you can go to war with this bass, and still play it. Leo Fender designed the P-Bass in 1951; 62 years later, no one has caused Fender to retire it. Good for any style: slap; funk; rock; jazz; country; R&B; metal; surf -- if you've listened to music since 1951, you've heard the Standard P-Bass. And the price is right. BUY THIS BASS!

It's what you'd expect!

By Seth McGuire

from Minneapolis, Mn

Comments about Fender Standard Precision Bass Guitar:

Long time Jazz bass player, first time P-bass. Gotta have that maple fretboard/neck on a black body. Had no idea what the stock pickups sound like, tossed in a set of active EMG's and called it good. Who needs a tone knob? Placed the super-secret vintage chrome pickup cover over the EMG's to add to the mystique (just like my other basses). Downside? I've always had to have the frets dressed on the Mexican versions, both guitar and bass. Upside? Guaranteed sound and durability. I play the sweet rock, country (shh!) and gore-festered grindcore. Awesome for all.

Very Pleasant Surprise - The Standard Precision is a good bass and a great value

By Thomas Braun

from Florissant, MO

Comments about Fender Standard Precision Bass Guitar:

I bought this new MIM Precision primarily as a project bass that I am planning on rebuilding, but I was really pleased with this bass out of the box. The neck has a great feel is very straight and solid. The frets were finished well (just about as good as my American Deluxe Jazz). The finish is very nice as well. What surprised me the most was how good the stock pickup sounds. Not as smooth as an older Precision, but it has a very punchy more "modern" sound. I will eventually change out parts because I like to rebuild basses, but I don't think anyone would be disappointed in this bass especially for what it costs.

Awesome

By Thomas

from Sealy, Texas

Comments about Fender Standard Precision Bass Guitar:

I got the sunburst model and am very satisfied with the purchase. The sound is just what I am looking for in a bass, deep and rich and the bass screams to be put in a larger amp than I have. However, if there was one thing that had me puzzled was that if the bass was checked before it got shipped, someone forgot to tighten the set screws on the volume and tone knobs on the bass. I didn't see the need to get mad about it, so I tightened them and have not had any other problems. I did get the 2 year repair warranty as insurance, but I don't think I will need it.

    Why pay more when this plays the same as an american

    About Me Professional Musician

    Comments about Fender Standard Precision Bass Guitar:

    I bought a used one and I love it! The only mod I did was take out the tone cause I don't really care for the highs of a bass. I run mine from a cheap 100w crate amp, and its perfect for punk and just rock & roll in general, yeh you can play other stuff but what's the fun in that?

      I am strictly a beginner, it feels good, hangs well and sounds great thru my Crate amp. I am used to utilizing a thumb rest so I did add that.

        Comments about Fender Standard Precision Bass Guitar:

        I love this bass. It feels and sounds great. I normally play a MIA Fender Jazz but i can't seem to put this MIM P-bass down. I love the tone and the fat neck the P-bass offers. I will be going to the studio soon and i definitely have a few tracks I will use this bass on.
        I need to lower the action a little but other then that its perfect. If it was stolen I would replace it with the same bass.

        Comments about Fender Standard Precision Bass Guitar:

        Bought the Candy Apple Red model with a maple fingerboard. Love it. I did do a couple of mods though.... replaced the pickup with a Nordstrand NP4 pickup, and replaced the bridge with a Hipshot A bridge. Killin.

            I am a self taught bass player. I have played a bunch of different basses from cheap to thousands of dollars. By far the Fender P bass has felt the best to me! Totally dig the tone and sound I get out of it!

              Comments about Fender Standard Precision Bass Guitar:

              The guitar seems fine despite the lack of adequate packing materials (imo). All that it was packed with was various long pieces of some type of heavy paper product. That's it! Seems to me it should have been packed in foam of some kind. The box seemed flimsy and was easy to push in on. Shipped from Kansas to Baltimore this way during extreme cold conditions (Stella storm). The box had a couple medium sized holes punched in it. There also was no paperwork.....nothing about the warranty, etc. I guess you're on your own to figure it out. Other than that, I'm happy with the guitar.

                At first I was skeptical to buy the space number one because in the store the intonation was so bad on most of the bases and they were not very friendly when you play them they didn't sound that great but let me say this I decided to go ahead and take a chance I got to Sunburst with a maple neck precision bass out of Mexico and the second I pulled it out of the box it was intended it perfectly the strings were perfect on the neck and I like I'm really close which can lead to some buzz but this one was perfect plugged it directly into the studio live No Effects is sounded amazing I'll say one thing I've been playing bass since I hung up 30 years and this place is truly amazing
