The Fender American Special Precision Bass delivers U.S.-built quality at a working musician’s price.

The Fender American Special Precision Bass is the latest addition to the ongoing tradition of industry leading quality. This workhorse begins with an alder body and C-shaped maple neck featuring a maple or rosewood fingerboard.

A split-coil alnico pickup provides the legendary American P Bass sound, and Fender's Greasebucket tone circuit rolls off highs while maintaining low-end definition, ensuring you'll cut through any mix. Finishing touches include knurled chrome knobs, vintage-style bridge and strap buttons, and a deluxe gig bag.

    Comments about Fender American Special Precision Bass:

    Bought the bass some months ago, and has not let me down at all.
    Simply enough the best bass I've ever heard. Ever.
    Before buying this one, I tried multiple basses, the first of which being a Fender Precision Bass American Standard, which although sounded good, felt uncomfortable and then tried this one and surpassed the American Standard significantly.
    Buy this bass. It will not let you down.
