We're proud to present this awesome Fender American Professional II Precision Bass! This time, we have a beautiful 3-Color Sunburst with a tortoise pickguard, the quintessential early '60s P Bass look.
If you're looking for top-shelf quality, unrelenting reliability, stellar playability and legendary tone, look no further than a flagship USA-made Fender bass. The modern contours and the familiar '63 neck shape are a timeless combination that remains the gold standard to this day.
The V-Mod split-coil pickup takes vintage tone to the next level, adding a contemporary edge to even better cover any style of music - Rock, Blues, Funk, Punk, Motown, Jazz, Reggae etc.... it does it all. How it can go from covering the softest of styles to being able to cover heavy genres is remarkable. Fender really combined the right amounts of tightness and thump with vintage clarity.
This is a killer bass that sets the bar in the bass world, and it is destined to be your end-all, be-all instrument at home, in the studio and at the gig!
The American Professional II Precision Bass draws from more than sixty years of innovation, inspiration and evolution to meet the demands of today’s working player.
The ’63 P Bass profile neck now sports smooth rolled fingerboard edges, a “Super-Natural” satin finish and a newly sculpted neck heel for a supremely comfortable feel and easy access to the upper register. The new V-Mod II Precision Bass split-coil pickup is more articulate than ever while delivering the punch and growl the P Bass is known for.
The American Pro II Precision Bass delivers instant familiarity and sonic versatility you’ll feel and hear right away, with broad ranging improvements that add up to nothing less than a new standard for professional instruments.
V-MOD II PICKUP
V-Mod II Precision Bass pickups are modified versions of our classic vintage pickup designs. Packed with the fundamental Fender bass sound you know and love, these split-coil pickups deliver the vintage warmth, punch and clarity that made Fender a legend.
NEW SCULPTED NECK HEEL
The rounded neck heel and beveled neck-plate improve access to the upper register and make leads easy and comfortable.
HIMASS VINTAGE BRIDGE
This precision manufactured string-through or top load bridge adds sustain, resonance and improved attack thanks to a cold-rolled steel baseplate, high mass brass backstop, and chrome-plated brass saddles.
’63 P BASS NECK PROFILE
Considered by many to be the gold standard of bass neck profiles, American Professional II Precision Bass guitars use the ‘63 P Bass neck profile. The Super-Natural satin finish on the back of the neck provides a smooth fret-hand feel complimented by rounded fingerboard edges .
TAPERED-SHAFT TUNING MACHINES
Wider at the top than the bottom, the tapered shafts force the string windings downward and keep them tight, resulting in a sharper and consistent break angle over the nut, creating increased sustain and better tuning stability.
POSIFLEX GRAPHITE RODS
All American Professional bass necks incorporate Posiflex graphite rods to reinforce against movement that can occur with fluctuations in the climate. Embedded beneath the fingerboard, they improve reliability on the road, in the studio or in your home.
