Description

The Fender American Ultra Series Precision Bass is designed for players who want the most advanced, highest performance Precision Bass ever made. The team spent over two years on intense R&D, analyzing and improving everything on this new flagship line. Made in America in Corona, California, the American Ultra P Bass features new noiseless pickups, advanced electronics, tapered heel and body contours, a redesigned neck profile, a rosewood fretboard with rolled edges and new stage-ready finishes. It all adds up to a Precision Bass you’ll never part with. But don’t let these modern updates fool you. The vibe of the American Ultra Series Precision Bass is still classic Fender.

Precision Bass modern D-profile comfortable neck

Ultra noiseless pickups

The American Ultra is loaded with an Ultra Jazz Bass pickup in the bridge and an Ultra Precision Bass pickup in the middle. They deliver a powerful, punchy tone with zero noise and hum.

Advanced electronics

The pickups can be further colored with an active/passive preamp, featuring new, re-voiced EQ points. The other controls on the American Ultra Precision Bass are also ultra-modern. Pickup selects are made with a pan pot. Explore more tonal possibilities with boost/cut switches for bass, midrange and treble.

P bass tapered neck heel for easy access to upper frets

New neck heel

A first for Fender, the American Ultra’s sculpted neck heel allows for effortless access to the upper frets. It’s a significant reduction in bulk at the base of the neck, super thin but structurally sound with maximum resonance.

The American Ultra P Bass neck has a modern-D profile. It’s flatter than a standard-D, with a faster back and a little more “meat” on the shoulders. Fender created an all-new process to apply a thin coast of satin urethane, giving the neck a completely smooth, raw wood feel. Your hands won’t stick here.
