Product Description

Simply put, the Fender American Elite Precision bass is one of the most versatile basses Fender has ever created! With compliments of 4th generation pickups, an 18-volt preamp, and impressive onboard controls, players of all styles will be able to find their signature sound. A lot of attention was paid toward the ultra-comfortable neck as well, with the shape changing from a modern C-shape at the nut to a modern D-shape toward the heel. 

Fender’s all-new fourth-generation Noiseless pickups are our latest advance in pickup technology. Exclusive to the American Elite series, they combine modern noise-free performance with authentic vintage-style sound that doesn’t sacrifice one iota of warmth. A redesigned robust 18-volt preamp cranks up the power for even more signal quality for chest-thumping tone with more headroom and reduced noise.

Designed for fast playing and effortless position changes, the compound profile neck with a 9.5”-14” compound radius fingerboard is ideal for all playing styles. A modern “C”-shape at the new genuine bone nut, the profile morphs along the length of the neck to a modern “D”-shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of comfortable support for fret hand antics. Posiflex graphite support rods run the length of the neck, adding stability to the neck while resisting temperature- and humidity-induced warping.

The HiMass Vintage bridge increases note attack and resonance for thunderous basslines with mammoth punch and near-endless sustain while allowing either top-load or strings-thru-body stringing. In a vintage-inspired touch, the new truss rod adjustment wheel has been moved to the butt end of the neck for easier access, making neck relief adjustments a snap. Fender is renowned for head-turning style, and this bass is no different—from the ergonomic contours to the black chrome headstock logo, large pearloid fret markers and a new color this instrument will amaze the audience with titanic sound and classic aesthetics.

The American Elite Precision Bass is a daring new tonal multi-tool for modern bassists who need an instrument that doesn’t just meet the performance demands of modern music—it completely disintegrates them. Includes a redesigned Elite Molded Case with body-hugging contours to provide increased protection for your cherished instrument and TSA locks.

What is your opinion of this product?
Seriously great bass, this delivered great and noiseless tone. I must say the 4th gen pickups sound amazing. I mean it’s a P Bass, you are going to get that big sound out of this. Also simply a beautiful instrument and the case is great, it’s super high quality and really gives me peace of mind when I am transporting it.
