A Classic Alder Body

The American Professional bass features a classic alder body, with comfortable contours that every player will love. Alder is the perfect choice for a guitar body as it produces a resonant and balanced tone with plenty of clarity. It is also lightweight enabling the guitar to be played all night long without strain on your shoulder. Fender have used alder as their tonewood of choice since the 1950s, as the balanced response and slight upper middle definition make it perfect for rock and blues playing.

Slim C Maple Neck and Rosewood Fingerboard

The bass’s maple neck delivers an incredibly comfortable and smooth feel that adds tightness and cut to the guitar’s tone, while its slim c profile offers an incredibly fast performance. A rosewood fingerboard is coupled with the neck to provide warm characteristics, furring up the maple's harsh sound. The maple and rosewood combination provide the bass with sizzling highs that sparkle, a low end that’s thick and firm, and a snappy attack in the midrange.

HiMass Bridge

As well as offering a wide variety of superb tones, the American Professional P Bass also features a Fender HiMass bridge which improves every note’s sustain and resonance. The bridge’s design enhances the attack of the bass, creating a lively tone while offering either a string though or top loaded set-up.

Narrow Tall Frets

Another edition to the American Professional series are narrow tall frets mounted on the fingerboard. These are slightly narrower than standard medium jumbo frets and are effective for bending notes and playing chords with superb intonation.

V-Mod Pickups

The Jazz bass is fitted with a set of Fender’s V-Mod single coil pickups, which are a modified version of their vintage design pickups. Designed with a carefully selected blend of alnico magnet types, these pickups offer a high-output tone with vintage warmth. This setup provides the bass with an incredibly balanced tone that is saturated with authentic Fender sonic properties.

Graphite Support Rods

Posiflex graphite support rods run the length of the bass’s neck, adding stability while reducing the amount of warping that may occur from temperature fluctuations and humidity. This is a particular advantage to players who travel, ensuring the instrument is always ready to play at a moment’s notice.

Bone Nut

As well as offering the perfect tone and looks, the American Professional features a bone nut, adding to the classic aesthetics of the bass. The main benefit of a bone nut compared to modern materials is excellent resonance and sustain. A bone nut also delivers a very balanced tone, and will last a long time. In addition, this type of nut naturally self-lubricates and helps the bass stay in tune for longer.

Elite Moulded Case

The American Professional instruments are delivered in an elite moulded case, featuring body-hugging contours which hold the guitar firmly in place. TSA latches are also included for enhanced security and easy access. This durable case is also stackable for easy storage and transport.

The History of the Precision Bass

Debuted in late 1951, the Precision Bass guitar was not only Fender's first bass guitar, it was the world's first bass guitar and a new kind of instrument. The Precision Bass (often shortened to P-Bass), has spent well over half a century at the very heart of music everywhere. With its two-horned solid body and fretted neck, the Precision Bass profoundly revolutionised music. Reigning ever since as a must-have instrument, this elegantly simple and enormously powerful instrument is the worldwide standard for bass tonality, performance, reliability and overall excellence.
