The P-Bass is just plain good looking—always has been, always will be. Its simplistic look combined with its functional design is the standard for many bass players. Featuring Fender quality build, cool aesthetics, and deep-toned PJ pickup configuration, the new American Performer Series Precision Bass is great for Fender bass purists and first timer owners alike.

Fender Quality Build
Cut from Alder, this P-Bass features a modern "C" maple neck with a 34" scale length. 20 jumbo frets line the 9.5" radius fret board with dot inlays centered between them. The fretboard is available in either rosewood or maple, depending on the finish, though both options sport a synthetic bone nut. The American Performer Precision Bass also boasts a 4-saddle vintage-style bridge with steel saddles, made for keeping those heavy strings properly in tune.

Cool Aesthetics
The Precision Bass body is Strat-esque in its double cutaway design and comes in a number of really nice finishes, which are either gloss polyurethane or satin polyurethane. A 3-ply black/white/black pickguard covers a good portion of the body, in classic P-Bass style, extending all the way under the three knurled Flat-Top control knobs. One of the coolest aesthetic design features of this P-Bass is the Fender "F" light-weight vintage Paddle Key tuners with tapered shafts. It's a throwback design that always catches the eye.

Deep-Toned PJ Pickup Configuration
Where this American Performer P-Bass diverges from the traditional P-Bass is in its PJ pickup configuration. The P-Bass split-single coil in the middle is the American Performer Series featured Yosemite pickup, while the Yosemite single coil Jazz Bass pickup sits at the bridge. The pickups have individual volume control knobs and there's a master tone knob with Greasebucket tone circuitry which will roll off highs without piling on more bass.

New Best Friend


This bass played great right out of the box, and it feels and sounds fantastic. The MIM Fenders are nice these days and there is NOTHING wrong with Player series, but you can feel the difference when you pick up this American Performer. It feels a little better and sounds a little better - and you can feel a difference in the materials and workmanship. It's just a nice bass. I have a new best friend...I love this thing.





Amazing Service from the manager. I think his name is Ramon Soriano. He found the base I wanted in the color I wanted.



Great sounding p Bass, frets needed a little work


So I was surprised to get this base having fret tangs that were Sharp on the edges of the neck being an American p Bass ,,,however Sam Ash was cool about it and adjusted the price, I took care of the frets ...and the bass looks and sounds like a good o bass should!
