    A Precision Bass for the Modern Player

    Fender's American Elite Precision Bass provides players with a classic bass that's updated for modern playing styles and techniques. You'll get the familiar round lows and aggressive mids that Precision Basses are known for, without the 60-cycle hum thanks to a fourth-generation Noiseless single-coil in the bridge and an Elite P Bass in the neck. An 18-volt active preamp adds a 3-band EQ and an active/passive switch. And a 9.5"-14" compound-radius fretboard makes the American Elite Precision Bass effortless to play.

    Fender American Elite Precision Bass at a Glance:
    • Familiar tones with a twist
    • Neck designed with you in mind
    • The quality is in the details
    Familiar tones with a twist
    Onboard the American Elite Precision Bass is a duo of Fender single-coil pickups. A split Elite P Bass pickup in the neck and a fourth-generation Noiseless J-style in the bridge deliver the Precision Bass's familiar punch and growl with more sonic options. But the Noiseless circuitry eliminates unwanted signal noise and hum, making the bass ideal for live performance and recording. The 3-band active preamp adds wide-ranging tonal control with a switch to go passive if you so choose. And the alder and maple construction with a rosewood fingerboard is a tried-and-true combination that has proven itself over decades.

    Neck designed with you in mind
    Fender Precision Basses have been known for their thick, sustaining neck profiles since their introduction. Their chunkier feel has made them a favorite among thousands of bassists worldwide. The American Elite Precision Bass continues the tradition with a comfortable contour that morphs from a "C" to "D" profile as you move up the neck. And the 9.5"-14" compound fretboard radius ensures comfort whether you're holding down the low end or delivering up melodic statements higher on the frets. This neck gives you the feel of a well broken-in bass as soon as you open the case.

    The quality is in the details
    Whether you play sitting or with one strapped over your shoulder, Sweetwater bassists are sure you'll appreciate the comfort of the American Elite Precision Bass's belly and arm contours. A Fender HiMass vintage-style bridge anchors the strings either through the body or in a top-load configuration. And adjusting the neck relief couldn't be easier because of the truss rod adjustment wheel located at the butt end of the neck. But because of a pair of Posiflex graphite support rods, you'll rarely have to worry about this ultra-stable neck.

    Fender American Elite Precision Bass Features:
    • Upgraded American Precision Bass
    • 4th-generation Fender Noiseless bridge J-style pickup
    • Elite Precision Bass neck single-coil pickup
    • Active 3-band EQ opens up your tonal options
    • An active/passive switch is a lifesaver if your battery dies
    • Ideal 9.5"-14" compound-radius fretboard
    • Comfortable belly and arm contours
    • Butt-end located truss rod adjustment wheel
    • Bone nut
    • Includes strap locks and adjustment wrenches
    The Fender American Elite Precision Bass is a workhorse bass for today's player.

    sorry for delay. I flew out of town today. It is rosewood. Not at home so could not weigh it right now.
    I am back home on Saturday and can weigh it then if not sold yet. But please let me know if you have any other questions. Again, sorry for delay.
