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!
