    God help us if you are engineering anything on which our lives depend.

    Brown and Tone! What more could a bassist ask?

    The last time I bought a Fender Standard series bass (2000s), it was $299.

    Well there's certainly no chance of bias there. o_O

    And it was sorta like the Squier line of today. And today's standard line is up to par with anything use professionally in the studio and on stage.

    Oh no, my Standard jazz bass is very high quality (obviously I still own it), better than any Squier. The neck is very nice and the fretless fingerboard is quite beautiful. Even the finish looks good! I've used it live and in the studio countless times over the years.

    Looks like the first of the new upgraded 2018 models are starting to hit the stores and the "Standard" line has been renamed as the "Player" line.

    NBD. New Fender MIM Precision. Upgraded Standard line!

    can't wait to see the options they offer. I thought the options they had offered before was just perfect. Who knows? Maybe it get better.

    They are now live on the Fender site. Maple and Pau Ferro options and it seems like there are more colours available than before. :)

    Player Precision Bass
    Player Jazz Bass
    Player Jaguar Bass

    This maple neck Jaguar looks tempting...

    Looks like they are only on the UK site. The US site is still Standards.

    They seem to have disappeared from the main UK page since I posted them. The links I posted are still working for me though most the colour options are not working when you click them.

    The seven colours listed for the P Bass and Jazz are 3-colour sunburst, black, buttercream, polar white, sage green metalic, sonic red and tidepool.

    Wow... 7 colors, choice of maple or pau ferro (depending on color). Everyone should have their warm and fuzzies back on now.

    Even the lefties have 4 color options! This may be unprecedented.

    I actually saw some of the new Player series instruments in person recently at a local GC. The pau ferro was pretty nice looking IMHO. Build quality and play-ability was good too. The spaghetti logo is a nice touch.

    It's a beautiful bass but at the same time, it makes me kinda dizzy when I stare at it.
