What we say:
Fender’s American Performer range brings an excellent selection of the most famous Fender designs, made in the USA, to players at great prices. Each Fender American Performer guitar has been specially designed to give gigging guitarists the tones and tools they need for excellent, high quality performances.
Special design features, custom wound pickups and fresh new finishes make this range stand out as one for players of all stripes to get behind. Fender USA quality at a budget friendly price: sounds perfect to us!
The Precision bass continues to be the foremost model in terms of Fender basses and is an important part of the American Performer Range. As with the other instruments, Fender have kept things largely close to how we’d expect them to be with such classic designs, though there are one or two positive refinements in here!
First up, the body is Alder and the neck is Maple. This example is finished in Satin Lake Placid Blue and has a Maple fingerboard. Fender have opted for a satin-finished Modern C neck carve since it’s one that all musicians seem to be able to agree on! The spec in general is an accumulation of popular consensus measurements: a 9.5” fingerboard radius, 34” scale length, medium jumbo frets…this bass is designed and assigned to appeal to as many players as possible, cementing its brief as an instrument for working players of all styles and gig types.
Two ‘Yosemite’ pickups are used here, fitting in with the rest of the American Performer series. These are specially wound in America for this bass and come in the extremely versatile ‘PJ’ configuration. This means you get both a Precision Bass split-coil pickup and a Jazz bass single coil. We’re very happy to see this decision being made here since it really is the best of both worlds! There isn’t much that this bass can’t handle!
A ‘greasebucket’ tone control lets you dial back the treble frequencies effectively without adding mud to your sound. All in all, this is a very versatile and professional sounding bass.
There is absolutely nothing to single out and complain about with this American Performer Precision Bass. It’s a pro-quality, American made Fender bass that is available at an unbeatable price. We love it.
The American Performer Precision Bass includes the Yosemite™ split-coil Precision Bass middle pickup and a growling Yosemite single-coil Jazz Bass bridge pickup, designed for rich, expressive tones. With flat-staggered pole pieces to increase output and a shellac coating that lets the coils breathe while controlling feedback, Yosemite pickups produce dynamic sounds ideal for any musical situation. The American Performer Precision Bass also features Greasebucket™ tone circuitry that lets you shape your highs without adding bass, preserving your sound. The “Modern C”-shaped neck sports a 9.5”-radius fingerboard that’s comfortable for almost any playing style, along with 21 jumbo frets, allowing you to easily express yourself musically.
