The American Series Precision Bass guitar that everyone knows and loves is better than ever! The new S-1 switching system makes this an extremely versatile bass that gives players an array of cool new sounds, and it comes in some fantastic new colors and finishes!
The American Series Precision Bass guitar features a solid alder or ash body (depending on color) and graphite-reinforced, modern C-shaped maple neck with satin polyurethane finish (available with maple or rosewood fingerboard). With the S-1 system, you can switch the split single-coil pickup from series to parallel, giving the bass a brighter, snappier tone similar to that of a Jazz Bass guitar.
