Ever since it's initial launch in 1951, the Fender Precision Bass has been seen as a revolutionary instrument. The design remains largely unchanged since it's debut, which is a true testiment to Fenders excellent design. After all, why mess with perfection?
The Fender Precision Bass V. Pure Elegance, Even More Versatility.
The bass is considered to be one of the most important aspects of any great band. It only makes sense then that a great bassist has the ultimate tools at his disposal to lay down the perfect groove. The Fender American Professional Precision Bass is now and always has been the first choice of instrument for any series bassist looking to further their playing.
The Precision Bass V features Fenders now legendary '63 "P-Bass" neck profile, which is vastly considered to be one of the best neck profiles found on any bass to date. It's quite literally become the standard to which all other neck profiles would be judged. A satin finish to the back of the neck also gives it an incredible smooth feel.
As the name would suggest, this is a five string variant of the new "American Professional" Precision Bass. Great for hard rock, metal and funk players looking for even more versatility from the worlds most relied upon bass guitar.
Narrow-tall frets are taller and narrower than their medium jumbo cousins, making them especially effective for bending notes and playing chords up the neck with perfect intonation.
V-Mod Bass Pickups
The V-Mod pickups are highly refined versions of Fenders classic vintage pickup design. Packed with legendary Fender tone, these split coil pickups deliver high output tone with a warmth and crisp usually associated with vintage instruments.

New Fluted Tuners
