Solidbody Electric Bass With Maple Neck and Fretboard, Two Single-Coil Pickups and 3-Band Active EQ

The Fender Player Plus Precision Bass is an accessible update to an instrument that has stood the test of time. Since its introduction in 1951, the P Bass has been seen in the hands of players like Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, Sting, Duff McKagan from Guns N’ Roses and Stax Records great Donald "Duck" Dunn. We love the Precision for the same reasons they do—the warm, unmistakable sound lays a solid foundation like no other. The Player Plus P Bass adds pro-level features like Noiseless pickups, rolled fingerboard edges and a 3-band active EQ. There's more than meets the eye on this bass, though. Keep reading to discover why we're pumped about the Player Plus. 

Bass sounds that are beyond basic

Fender made its first foray into Noiseless pickups in 1998. This Precision Bass comes with the fourth generation. A Noiseless Jazz Bass single coil sits in the bridge position; the neck position has a hum-cancelling split-coil P Bass pickup. The P/J combination give you the best of both worlds with a deep low-end, clear highs, plus a warm mid-range growl. We like how easy it is to sculpt the sound with the 3-band active EQ. If you want passive play, just flip the switch to bypass the EQ altogether.

The P Bass has a body that just won't quit

In 1954, the Precision Bass was updated with arm and body contours that matched the Stratocaster. The Player Plus P Bass incorporates both, so you won't feel a thick piece of alder burrowing into your ribcage. The double-horn design balances the bass and offers greater access to the upper frets for high octave runs. We also appreciated the flatter, 12" radius fretboard with rounded edges—it's a comfortable combo. 


Hardware that locks in the low end

A hefty HiMass bridge provides a solid string-to-body connection, making the Player Plus Precision particularly resonant. We're suckers for Fender's open-gear paddle tuners, too. They're practical, precise and virtually failure-free. Add up all of these features, and the Fender Player Plus Precision Bass proves to be a remarkable value for musicians of all skill levels. It comes with a deluxe gig bag.
