Fender’s all-new fourth-generation Noiseless pickups are the 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 synthetic 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.

AMS and Fender - A winning combination!

What is your opinion of this product?
When I purchased my Fender Elite Jazz bass (from AMS) I was convinced I had bought the best bass in the world. Until I bought my Elite Precision. I now have a new favorite out of the 6 basses I currently own. Build is perfect Fender quality. The tone is versatile as heck thanks to the P/J pickup combo and the vast array of tones available is truly impressive. The weight of the bass is typically heavy as most Precisions seem to be, around 10 pounds, but I like it that way. I feel a heavier bass just sounds better and bolder. The electronics are clean and the pickups are noiseless as they should be. The 18 volt pre-amp adds an incredible amount of boost for times when you really need to cut through the mix and the controls are intuitive and smooth to operate. The neck with the modern compound radius provides comfort and easy playability all the way up and down the neck. It goes from a classic "C" shape at the nut and gradually transforms to a modern "D" shape at the heel. Amazing bass!

Best bass guitar I have ever owned!
What is your opinion of this product?
Smoothest sounding and most versatile bass I have ever owned! (Sound): Smooth is what everyone describes the sound as being and agree that it is best bass bar none they have heard. My soundmen love it as do my session engineers. The versatility of having the Active/Passive Switch on the fly makes EQ a dream when dealing with different soundman. (Electronics): The New Fender PreAmp and Electronics just add to the already sonic capability and natural sound. I play extensive sets in different venues and I only need this bass to dial in my radio ready sound. The Mids and Lows are phenomenal.The EQ is second to none. I like the tone thru my amp but this monster is ready to plug direct into PA if needed. Then the icing on the cake is I can have the old passive fender tone with a flip of the switch. (Playability): I can play on every fret from top to bottom. Harmonics sound great! The action is set as low as any bass I've ever had and it plays like "butter" (Design) The radius of the neck allows easy playing on a thicker neck. The details of the abalone inlays make on the maple fretboard is eye catching as well as the Ocean Turquise paint job that could be on any classic car. The pearloid pick guard with mint green tint just draws everyone in. Not only am I told this is one of the best sounding basses folks have heard but also best looking. (Hardware):The nut,saddles, frets, tuners and bridge are all professional grade. I have owned $4-6k basses and this one by far is the best in my 31 years of playing. I have toured with Country, Gospel and Rock artist and been involved in many sessions and I believe this bass to be as stated, ELITE!
