This was the "real" bass as I bought as an upgrade from my starter bass, it's a made in Mexico Fender Standard P-bass. It's features include:

-Maple neck with a rosewood fretboard

-Alder body

-Standard Fender split coil pick-up

-Volume and Tone controls

-20 medium jumbo frets

-Standard vintage style four barrel bridge



UTILIZATION

I found this bass quite nice to play although I found the neck too wide for my preferences, after getting a jazz bass I won't be going back to a precision any time soon. The contours in this bass make it quite comfortable to play but it is quite heavy and my shoulder began to ache after playing for a 30+ minutes. The upper fret access on this bass isn't great although that's never been a huge problem for me due to my playing style.

I found it very easy to get a nice sound out of this bass as the controls are very simple, being just a simple volume and tone pot set up.

SOUNDS

I really like the sound of this bass guitar, it's the main reason I had a hard decision working out wether to sell it or not after I bought a jazz. I used this bass in a ska-punk band for a while and through my Ashdown MAG-300 amp it sounded amazing for the style. The tone knob has a nice range to go from smooth to quite punchy and anywhere in between.

OVERALL OPINION

Overall I think this is a great bass for the price if you like the neck and the sound. I have considered putting a jazz bass neck on a precision body for the sound of the precision but the comfort of jazz neck and possibly will in the future but with a stock p-bass neck I decided I couldn't justify keeping it.
