Special-edition P Bass with an Understated Elegance
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 descendant of that original instrument. That definitely includes this Special Edition Noir Precision Bass 4-string. This bass combines the classic design elements that made the original P Bass a legend with a special-edition aesthetic that is sure to find favor with players that prefer a custom look. If you want P Bass performance with a dark and elegant personality, the Special Edition Noir P Bass is for you.
Classic P Bass construction
This Special Edition Noir Precision Bass is crafted with an alder body, which is quite resonant and relatively light — which you’ll really appreciate after two or three hours onstage. Its comfortable contours hug your body in a familiar way. And the single-coil pickup reacts with that mid-heavy punch that has made Precision basses the go-to instrument for bassists around the world. Fender got it right with the Precision Bass the first time, so they were careful not to mess with its proven recipe for success.
What separates this Precision Bass from the pack is its dark aesthetics, lending the instrument a smoky personality. The body is cloaked in a stealthy satin black finish that is complemented by a red-trimmed black pickguard. The look extends to the Noir Precision Bass’s pau ferro fretboard, which also serves to add a hint of clarity to your tone. And players agree, the black matching headstock finishes the visual appeal of this instrument in a classy way.
Comfortable maple neck and pau ferro fretboard
The Precision Bass design may be as famous for its meaty yet comfortable maple neck as it is for its tone. And this Special Edition Noir P Bass continues that tradition. The neck’s Modern “C” carve is substantial, which greatly improves sustain. It’s also comfortable for players who want nothing more than to lay down the groove. And this special-edition P ups the game with a clear-sounding pau ferro fretboard that boasts a 9.5″ fretboard radius. Tonally and visually, the pau ferro is a perfect match for the Special Edition Noir Precision Bass.
