The American Elite Series basses represent the very best in modern Fender performance, playability, and tone while holding true to traditional Fender style. Groundbreaking Elite Series features include the latest 4th generation Noiseless pickups, a powerful 18V preamp, the enhanced American Elite contoured neck heel and compound neck shape, and the American Elite adjustable truss rod adjustment wheel.
The original Fender electric bass is brought into the modern era with the groundbreaking American Elite Precision Bass. Crafted from alder (3-Color Sunburst, Black, & Olympic White finishes) or ash (Natural & Tobacco Sunburst finishes), the American Elite Precision Bass features that legendary P-Bass body with the instantly-recognizable P-Bass-style pickguard. The American Elite compound "C" to "D" maple neck and compound-radius (9.5"-14") fretboard provide an exceptionally ergonomic playing experience across the entire neck while the American Elite neck heel allows for easy, comfortable access to the higher frets. The neck also comes equipped with an all-new truss rod adjustment wheel for quick, easy neck relief adjustments.
The American Elite Precision Bass comes equipped with incredibly versatile electronics that include a "PJ" pickup configuration and an ultra-powerful 18V preamp. In the middle position, the Elite Precision Bass split-coil pickup serves up that iconic P-Bass growl while the revolutionary 4th generation Noiseless bridge pickup gives you that genuine vintage-inspired Fender tone while offering cutting-edge noise-free performance. The updated 18V preamp offers outstanding sonic flexibility, increased signal quality, more headroom, and less noise. The preamp controls include a passive/active 2-way toggle switch, a Master Volume knob, a Pan Pot (pickup selector) knob, a passive Tone control, and a 3-band EQ when active mode is engaged.
The American Elite Precision Bass comes loaded up with a genuine bone nut and high-performance nickel/chrome hardware including a set of Fender "F" Lightweight Vintage-Paddle tuners and a HiMass Vintage bridge (string-through-body or topload). Comes complete with a redesigned ABS Elite Molded case with TSA locks for superior protection.
