Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This is IMHO one of the best quality I have had the pleasure of playing. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The simplistic beauty of its design and pure tone. I would not add anything to this bass. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Dark and smooth. Pickups were mellow and thick. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Paint job is immaculate. Mine is the Olympic White with the Brown Pickguard.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This is the area where American made Fenders really justify their cost. I've never had problems with any of my MIA Fender Basses, this one feels rock solid, the new cases are great and it was worth every penny. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? This is a P-Bass, so the best feature is that there are no features. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I would not say the pickups are hot, but they are not underpowered. The tone over all is like a modern version, a more well defined sound, of the classic Fender tone. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish is perfect, the neck is well seated, the pick guard unblemished, the hardware looks great and the knobs and jacks secure. The fret work was all nicely burnished as well.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It's an American Standard P Bass. There's nothing better. I will enjoy playing this bass for many, many years to come! Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? TONE, TONE and TONE. In my opinion there's nothing like a P bass. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? true Fender P Bass tone. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Absolutely BEAUTIFUL!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The bass is solid and very well made, across all aspects. Overall, the bass is a decent weight (around 8.5lbs), the electronics have no problems at all. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The P-Bass is a simple creature, which has helped with its longevity. If you're looking for a lot of knobs and switches, you're looking at the wrong bass. I'm loving the bridge & stringthrough on the bass. The only things I'd add to the current line is a larger selection of colors and better factory strings. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? It can growl, no problems with mud. As I said above, I do want to change out the strings, they're a little bright for my tastes. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The Charcoal Frost Metallic is definitely my favorite color out of the current run offered by Fender. The finish was beautiful. I did replace the standard white-black-white pickguard and it is now even more stunning. I was disappointed though as there were some large chips around some of the pickguard screw holes (but small enough to be covered 100% by the guard itself.) The maple fretboard is so glossy, it can be almost blinding.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The quality of this bass guitar is truly first-rate, as one would hope to expect for an American made product. If the Fender Custom Shop has even higher standards than this superb Fender American Precision Bass, then I simply cannot imagine how, seeing how pristine this bass is. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? As other reviewers have stated--this classic P Bass is a "no-frills" bass, capable of amazing tone and diversity. Volume and Tone controls. Period. Perhaps a thumb rest closer to the bridge would be nice from the factory, but resting one's thumb on the pickup or the E string works well, too. And one can always add an aftermarket rest. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I believe this bass will sound great on any setup, regardless of price (I use an Ampeg BA115 combo-amp, which is probably entry level). The pickups (passive) do seem a little "hotter" than the "Geddy Lee" but this could just be a false perception. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The quality of the finish on this bass was truly second to none! The clear coat has been buffed to perfection, with no "orange peel" or swirl marks. Incredible depth and shine. Superior to that of my Japanese "Geddy Lee" Jazz Bass, which already held high-marks!
