The Precision Bass developed by Leo Fender was first introduced to the public in 1951 and is considered to be the first fretted bass ever and the first serious bass with an electric pickup. Due to these characteristics and its characteristic, warm and powerful sound, it quickly became a bestseller and has been an integral part of the music world since the sixties.
The American Professional series replaced the American Standard series in 2016 after more than three decades and made a number of small but useful changes. The bass is equipped with a HiMass bridge, which is supposed to conduct the string vibrations better due to its larger mass. The string guide through the body increases the pressure on the riders, which in our experience is very beneficial for a fast attack and long sustain. The tuning machines have also been changed; thanks to conical axles, the ones used in this instrument are lighter than their predecessors; the sometimes occurring problem with the top-heaviness of Fender basses is therefore eliminated here.
In combination with the graphite neck with Narrow Tall frets and the V-Mod pickup, with an Alnico II coil for the E and A strings and an Alnico V coil for the D and G strings, this guitar is a real winner;The result is a round, gnarly sound that is not quite open in the highs, as is typical for Prezi, but is also far from muddy and shows why the P-Bass is so popular.
