Up for sale, a 2021 Fender American Professional II Precision Bass in showroom clean condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hangtags, COA, and hardshell case. The American Professional II Precision Bass is the latest incarnation of Fender's iconic bass model, designed from the ground up to offer an ideal gigging and recording instrument with an alder body, maple neck, and slab rosewood fretboard. Features include the ’63 C-shape neck profile with rolled fingerboard edges and “Super-Natural” satin finish, contoured neck heel, and V-Mod II split-coil pickup, engineered to provide traditional P Bass punch and growl with unparalleled articulation.
Designed by pickup guru Tim Shaw, the V-Mod II pickup produces the warm and natural tones of vintage pickups, while delivering the clarity and dynamic range of some of today's best designs. The alder also provides a notably deep, resonant acoustic platform for the pickup. Weighing 8lbs 5oz and professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, this Precision Bass is strung with 45-105 roundwound strings, dialed in with easy-playing action and accurate intonation.
The maple neck has Fender's ’63 C-shaped profile carve with lightly rolled fretboard edges, nicely rounded shoulders, and notable heft in the higher registers. The profile measures .815" deep at the 1st fret and .995" at the 12th. It's a particularly comfortable profile with a silky "Super-Natural" satin finish. The thick slab rosewood fretboard has a modern 9 1/2" radius and flawless “narrow-tall” fretwire. The bass offers Fender's traditional 34" scale, and the bone nut measures 1 5/8" in width. The headstock is fitted with clover button tuners designed to provide a reliable modern gear ratio while being lightweight.
All of the electronics function as they should, with gleaming chrome-plated hardware including Fender's HiMass string through body bridge. Plastics include a dark red tortoise pickguard which contrasts with the Olympic White gloss finish. There is barely a scratch on the gloss body finish, and the satin neck profile finish is equally pristine.
The original molded Fender hardshell case is included, along with the original hangtags and COA.
