Born in Corona, California, the American Performer Precision Bass delivers the exceptional tone and feel you expect from an authentic Fender - along with new, player-oriented features that make it even more inspiring to play.

The American Performer Precision Bass includes the Yosemite(TM) split-coil Precision Bass middle pickup and a growling Yosemite single-coil Jazz Bass bridge pickup, designed for rich, expressive tones. With flat-staggered pole pieces to increase output and a shellac potting that lets the coils breathe while controlling feedback, Yosemite pickups produce dynamic sounds ideal for any musical situation.

The American Performer Precision Bass also features Greasebucket(TM) tone circuitry that lets you shape your highs without adding bass, preserving your sound. The "Modern C"-shaped neck sports a 9.5"-radius fingerboard that's comfortable for almost any playing style, along with 20 jumbo frets, allowing you to easily express yourself musically.

As a kid starting out, I always thought I would own a Fender, and now 43 years later I finally do. I bought this bass to replace a Schecter Omen Extreme 4 that I had. The Schecter was great but as I also have had a Squier Jazz Bass for a number of years, I find the new Fender Precision so much easier to play. The satin finish maple neck is fast and comfortable and best of all, familiar. The two pickup design was a big selling point. The jazz bass bridge pickup gives you that biting growl that they are known for but the P-bass pickup gives you that classic Fender tone that most everyone loves. The build quality is great and I personally like that this is a passive bass instead of active electronics. It’s just so much easier. My only minor beef was that although it did come with a gig bag, I kind of thought for the price that a hardshell case would have been included, but I will order one for an additional cost. I have tried several Fenders over the year and never been that impressed enough to make the jump but this particular bass ticked all the boxes and I’m looking forward to playing it for many years.

I bought this bass to replace my Sterling Ray35 (even though this is a 4-string). The playability is off the charts! The satin maple neck looks as good as it plays. Fast and easy to cover. The PJ pups give you a ton of tonal versatility. The Lake Placid satin blue is stunning and the weight is very reasonable. Love this bass!
