In addition, the stunning instrument is also complete with an Elite molded case for safely transporting between gigs.
Comfortable Neck Profile
Designed for fast playing and effortless position changes, the compound profile neck is ideal for all playing styles. A modern “C”-shape at the new genuine bone nut morphs along the length of the neck to a modern “D”-shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of comfortable support for fret hand antics.
A Revolutionary Sound For the Modern Player
Designed for the modern bassist, the American Elite Precision Bass pushes the boundaries of standard bass guitar design, providing a multi-faceted performer with classic style, exceptional feel and a versatile tone, as well as a delivering a giant sound that will leave others in the dust. Equipped with Fender's new 4th generation noiseless pickup technology, the American Elite Bass combines noise-free performance with authentic vintage-style sound that doesn't sacrifice any warmth. In addition, there is also an Elite Precision Baas pickup in the middle position offering that classic tone that Fender enthusiasts will love. This versatile bass has another trick up it sleeve with the additional 18-volt preamp, which allows players to crank up the power for even more signal quality for chest-thumping tone with more headroom and reduced noise. Overall, the American Elite P-Bass provides a workhorse bass guitar that wil outshine any stage.
Graphite Support Rods
Posiflex graphite support rods run the length of the neck, adding stability to the neck while resisting temperature and humidity induced warping. This is a particular advantage to players who travel and experience a change in temperature, which ensures your cherished instrument is always ready to play.
HiMass Vintage Bridge
The HiMass Vintage bridge increases note attack and resonance for thunderous basslines with mammoth punch and near-endless sustain while allowing either top-load or strings-thru-body stringing. In a vintage-inspired touch, the new truss rod adjustment wheel has been moved to the butt end of the neck for easier access, making neck relief adjustments simple and easy.
