Drive your sound with raw humbucking power. Order your Fender Blacktop Precision Bass Guitar from Sam Ash Direct today for the guaranteed lowest price

Fender’s new and innovative Blacktop series has taken the classic P Bass design and given it a sonic boost into a whole new stratosphere! Fender has added a supercharged electronics schematic that will be a force to be reckoned with. Replacing the traditional Precision Bass single coil pickup with a pair of high-output humbuckers, give this legendary icon a whole new voice. These are quite possibly the most powerful basses Fender has ever offered. The Blacktop Precision Bass will deliver the massive tone that you seek, and you will love the flexibility of the dual humbucker layout with individual volume controls for each along with a master tone.

More traditional appointments include an alder body, maple neck with modern C shape and gloss urethane finish, rosewood fretboard with 9.5” radius and 20 medium jumbo frets, three-ply black-white-black pickguard, open-gear tuners and chrome hardware which includes a Fender designed Blacktop™ HiMass bridge to stabilize intonation and increase sustain. Case not included.

When you buy your Fender Blacktop Precision Bass Guitar from Sam Ash Direct you get the benefit of our 85 plus years of experience and, because we are a Fender Authorized Dealer, the Fender limited lifetime warranty. Order yours from Sam Ash Direct today with the security of our 45/60 day return/price protection policy and fast, free shipping.

      Comments about Fender Blacktop Precision Bass:

      These models just arrived in the Raleigh Sam Ash store yesterday. When arriving in the late morning, my sales guy introduced me to it and told me I would be the first customer to try it out. As a diehard Warwick fanatic, I've always been a bit skeptical when it came to Fender basses. Just one look at the dual-humbuckers and [$]price tag, and I couldn't resist. Plugged it into my favorite Hartke rig and went to town. It sounded just as crisp and clear as any of my Warwick Corvettes, with just a different feel to it. After doing a little more research, I definitely plan on returning to Sam Ash and picking up a few of these bad boys for my next run of shows!
