The Fender Standard "P Bass" Updated for the 21st Century!

Leo Fender designed and built the world's first electric bass guitar in late 1951, and every electric bass made since then is unquestionably a direct descendent. The Precision Bass (or "P Bass" as it's come to be called) was so named because it had frets; therefore, its tuning was more "precise" than the old upright acoustic basses. So inspired was that design that it has changed little over the years in appearance, though its evolution continues today with the 4-string Standard P Bass, which combines the classic design with modern features.

Fender Standard Precision Bass at a Glance:
  • Alder body with 3-ply white pickguard
  • Standard series split single-coil P Bass pickup
  • Maple neck with modern "C" shape
Alder body with 3-ply white pickguard

Bass guitars are big and that can mean heavy, too. So the Standard Precision Bass comes with an alder body, which is quite resonant but relatively light, which you'll really appreciate after two or three hours onstage.

Standard series split single-coil P Bass pickup

Why on earth would you change something as perfect as the split single-coil P Bass pickup? You wouldn't, of course. So Fender stuck with a winner but added a new shielded body cavity for quieter operation and reduced hum onstage or in the studio.

Maple neck with modern "C" shape

Leo Fender wasn't a guitar player, so he didn't really know that guitars weren't supposed to have maple necks. Eventually, the blond maple necks became a Fender trademark. This timeless incarnation of the Standard P Bass has a nicely balanced maple neck with a modern "C" shape.

Fender Standard Precision Bass Features:
  • Black
  • Alder body with maple neck
  • 34" scale length
  • Standard machine heads
  • 20 frets
  • 1 split single-coil P Bass pickup
  • Master volume and tone controls
  • Standard vintage style bridge
  • Chrome hardware
Classic look and feel combine with modern features to set a new standard.
