Beautifully crafted and equipped.
The Fender American Deluxe Precision Bass is built with modern features that bassists demand, with a newly designed preamp circuit that delivers deeply exhilarating active and passive tones. The Fender P-Bass' powerful-yet-quiet N3 Noiseless pickups present more clean headroom, extended EQ range, and even more sublime tonal options, thanks to the active/passive switch and passive tone control.
The American Deluxe Precision bass is crafted with a select alder body-a hard wood that provides clear tone and lasting sustain. A graphite-reinforced maple neck with modern C-shape, Posiflex graphite neck support rods, 5-bolt neck plate, and contoured heel make the Deluxe Precision bass extremely easy to play. The Fender High-Mass Vintage bass bridge offers compressed and focused bass tone, with more mid range punch. The American Deluxe Precision bass retains the Fender articulation and sparkle, combined with vintage-style saddles to maintain a classic vibe. A combination of a steel plate with brass saddles produce the best possible Fender Bass sound.
Fender N3 Noiseless pickups
Fender's N3 Noiseless pickups are among the best-sounding pickups ever affixed to a Stratocaster or a Telecaster guitar, providing unmistakable vintage sound without unwanted noise. In short, N3 Noiseless pickups deliver landmark vintage Fender tone and response without the hum that can plague single-coil pickups. Using an improved stacked-coil design, N3 Noiseless pickups are specially tailored for each Stratocaster and Telecaster pickup position-neck, middle, and bridge. The insulated metal core of each pickup position type differs in thickness and composition for enhanced tone, and Fender has fine-tuned the size, shape, and wire gauge of the coils to balance the magnetic responsiveness essential to great tone.
N3 Noiseless pickups represent a welcome return to the warmth and clarity of alnico magnets. Again, the type of alnico magnets used is tailored to pickup position-Alnico 5 for the power and warmth of the Stratocaster N3 bridge pickup and the signature snap and spank of both Telecaster pickups; Alnico 2 for the sweetness and sparkle of the Stratocaster N3 middle pickup; Alnico 3 for the fullness of the Stratocaster N3 neck pickup without undue magnetic string pull.
The active 3-band EQ, along with a split single-coil pickup and bridge humbucker provides a wide range of dynamic tones, so you can individualize and pinpoint your ultimate Fender bass sound. The American Deluxe Prescision Bass is perfect for players who want a top-of-the-line modern Precision Bass.
Other features include Stealth "A" string retainer, tinted neck, rolled fingerboard edges, highly detailed nut and fretwork, genuine bone nut, flat-head screws on battery compartment (for easy changes with a coin or pick), and pearloid dot inlays. Includes case.

Comments about Fender American Deluxe Precision Bass:
ok, how to start??? This bass is absolutely Amazing, Solid well made!
The sound is just fantastic... You can create many different sounds with this baby... I love to play punk music as well as jazz and it works perfect for both... OMG easy to play, not that heavy for me, I use a well padded strap anyway and can play for 2-3hrs with no problem.
I play bass since 1980 when I was about 10yr. old I've played all kinds of basses like the popular musicman which I actually replaced for a fender cause the musicman was extremelly heavy... I've play gibson, rickenbacker, several fenders.... etc... and so far this is the best bass I've ever had...Period!
I will definitely recomend this one, you wont be dissapointed!
Save your many and get the best American made bass ever made!
