Fender Standard Precision Bass - Arctic White with Rosewood Fingerboard
In Stock!

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, and 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 four-string Standard P-Bass, which combines the classic design with modern features.

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

Alder body with three-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 up on stage.>

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 on stage 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.>

Rosewood fingerboard
While almost all the early Fender instruments had maple necks and fingerboards, the company quickly realized that some players preferred the slightly warmer sound and feel of a traditional rosewood fingerboard. For the 4-string Standard Precision Bass, it's the perfect match.>

Perfect

Needed another bass for my home studio. I have an Epiphone Viola, but that is a one trick pony. I used to have a Fender Aerodyne and was thinking of getting another Jazz bass, but after a ton of research, decided on a Precision. Matt Alexander at Sweetwater helped me choose a great one. Thanks, Matt! Out of box, the setup was perfect. The only thing I've changed is a tortoise shell pickguard and a set of chromes. I can't see changing anything else. Pots are mechanically and sonicaly smooth. Great range of tone from the pickup. Tuners are solid and stable. Very happy with this bass and with Sweetwater service!
Music background: Long time player

4.5/5

standard p bass

fit and finish excellent, tone great. Have owned a few mim fenders over the years and was not impressed. These new ones are much better. Put a set of flat wounds (chromes), set the neck and action,and it sounds as good or better than the Americans I have owned. I like the pickups as well as the Original p basspickups I have installed on other basses.Pots smooth,fretts are level, no buzz and intonation perfect.
Music background: Playing music 50 yrs. Made a few bucks.

Triple play (craftsmanship; tone and feel)

My Fender Standard Precision Bass looks good and appears to be built well. The tone is versital, even with just tone and volume controls only! The feel is nice too! It has a smooth neck that's easy to navigate. With the right set up and strings you can't go wrong.
