Fender’s Player Series is the biggest update yet to their highly-popular Mexican Standard range, with the likes of the Precision Bass offering top quality specs at an affordable price.
The Precision bass is a mainstay of the Player Series line, crossing vintage looks and sound with modern design.
A modern ‘C’ neck is a staple Fender trait and remains integral to the luxurious feel they provide across all their guitars and basses. However, the satin finish is a big departure from older Mexican models, granting improved speed up and down the warm-sounding Pau Ferro fretboard. The 9.5” radius is comfortable to grip, and 20 medium jumbo frets are suitable for almost any playing type.
Meanwhile, the four-saddle bridge and synthetic bone nut ensure you have accurate intonation and easy access for action adjustment to suit your style. Chrome volume and tone knobs are also close-to-hand for crafting your perfect sound. The whole package is extremely reliable for working musicians who don’t want to pay almost twice as much for its American-made cousin.
The P-Bass Sound
It has the familiar stamp of genuine Fender tone, produced through the alnico split-coil pickups to deliver legendary fat and punchy bass. The alder body is relatively light but doesn’t taint the heavy low-end growl that made the Standard series famous.
While not the most modern of tones out there, what you get from the Player Precision isn’t far off American-made models and it certainly offers more versatility and strength than competitors in its price range.
The Precision’s body-shape combined with the swirling three-ply pickguard, vintage headstock and blooming tuners make this bass a classic. Build-quality is exactly what you’d come to expect from Fender. Have the peace of mind that your Precision will last through bumps and scrapes on the road or in the studio.
