USA Hot- Rod Precision, £899. Through body strung, Jazz neck profile (Maple / Maple), black body with tortoise-shell style pick guard. I popped into my dealer to try this bass. Well, what a disappointment!!! I honestly thought Fender had improved their quality issues, but not on this showing. To be honest, it really had a cheap feel to it. The frets were sightly proud and felt just a little sharp / rough along the edges of the neck. (The same was true for a regular USA Precision they had in). So much for Fender's 'detailed fretwork', I thought. The controls were dreadful. Even budget basses these days have damped potentiometers. But this (nearly £1000) Fender's controls felt like cast-offs from the cheapest, Far Eastern made transistor radio. I found the sound (especially on D and G) weak and uninteresting. The overly high (for me) action didn't help and I was amazed to find the age-old dead spot on the neck. It was around B and C, but I thought Fender's graphite neck had irradicated this altogether. Clearly not. CONCLUSION. Little difference between a Squier and this USA. A horrible bass.
