Description

Fender – 2001 – American Precision Bass in 3-Color Sunburst

Since its inception in 1951, the Precision Bass® has gone through many transformations, but the qualities that made the Precision Bass great in the ’50s and ’60s remain gloriously intact in the American Series models: unmistakable tone, toughness and playability.

The American Precision Bass has a vintage body radius and contour which gives it that classic Fender vibe and feel. Featuring a premium ash or alder body for better tone and sustain, rosewood or maple fingerboards with detailed fret and nutwork and rolled edges, and the classic split-coil Precision Bass pickup.
