What Haworth Guitars say:
The Fender American Elite Precision Bass with Ebony Fingerboard is a high-quality Electric P-Bass model by Fender.
At Haworth Guitars we love this Fender American Elite Precision Bass's maple compound neck shape, active/passive switching, compound radius fretboard and HiMass Vintage bridge as well as it's powerful new 4th Generation noiseless single-coil bridge pickup and Elite Precision Bass middle pickup.
What Fender has to say:
Updating Fender's classic design with revolutionary technology and sound, the American Elite Precision Bass is an entirely new beast of a bass. Designed for 21st-century players who push the envelope of tone and possibility every time they play, this bass is a multi-faceted performer with classic style, exceptional feel and versatile, giant sound that leaves others in the dust.
