  • Frequently Asked Questions about Fender American Ultra Precision Bass

    Question: What is a PJ pickup combination?
    PJ refers to the configuration of one Precision bass split coil pickup (P) and one Jazz bass single coil pickup (J) being used together on one instrument. This configuration broadens your tonal options and gives you the benefit of both styles - P-Bass and Jazz - in one instrument."
    Question: Does a compound radius fingerboard make a difference on the bass?
    We think it does, yes! The radius determines how you interact with the bass and hence how the bass feels. Having a rounder radius near the bottom is great for a retro feel, whereas a flatter radius near the top gives you a fantastic place to indulge in more freeform, adventurous playing.
    Question: Does the Fender American Ultra Precision bass have active or passive electronics?
    Indeed it does: the Fender American Ultra Precision Bass has an active preamp onboard, powered by a 9v PP3 battery. Controls to boost and cut the treble, middle and bass frequencies are located on the front of the instrument.
