The Fender Standard Precision Bass has updated to a more modern look without having to forfit the classic sound...

Leo Fender designed and built the world's first electric bass guitar in late 1951, and every electric bass made since then is unquestionably a direct descendent. The Precision Bass (or P Bass as it has come to be called) was so named because it had frets, and therefore its tuning was more "precise" than the old upright acoustic basses. So inspired was that design that it has changed little over the years, though its evolution continues today with the 4-string Standard P Bass, which combines the classic design with modern features.

Bass guitars are big, and that can mean heavy, too. So the Standard Precision Bass comes with an alder body, which is quite resonant but relatively light, which you'll really appreciate after two or three hours up onstage. Its back and forearm contours cradle your body in a comfortable playing position. There's a reason the P Bass has been around so long, and this sculpted alder body is a big part of that. Why on earth would you change something as perfect as the split single-coil P Bass pickup? You wouldn't, of course. Fender stuck with their winning design but added a new shielded body cavity for quieter operation and reduced hum.
