The left-handed American Standard Precision Bass® is the same best-selling and solidly powerful instrument it has always been, and now it's upgraded with a seismic Fender Custom Shop '60s Precision Bass split single-coil pickup. It's the latest incarnation of the indestructible workhorse instrument that revolutionized popular music, stronger and more indispensable than ever.

First of all I'd like to apologize for my English, I'm not a native speaker.
Taking into consideration that I'm a lefty, I'm very restricted in different things and the musical instruments aren't an exception. The choice of a bass guitar is just like the choice of the girl with whom you're ready to create a family and spend all life long.
My first bass was Schecter, however I felt that it wasn't my stuff. Then I tried the P Bass and I did really fall in love with it! Everything is perfect here: the classical design, the comfortable neck, the rich sound and, certainly, the fact that it was the first popular electric bass in the history - all that made me a loyal customer of Fender's Precision Bass.
When I got this bass I had to modify it by additional shielding the pickup's cavity and grounding the magnets by the aluminum foil to avoid unpleasant clicks while touching the open strings (G and D especially), however that ABSOLUTELY didn't affect my 100% positive impression I got from playing this bass. I can't imagine myself holding a different guitar.
Furthermore, I gave this bass to the specialist to defret it and now I'm happy owner of a rare left-handed fretless bass! And I must say it's something godlike! I discovered a new field to explore where I could develop myself and thus enlarge my outlook.
So, my kind piece of advice is: if you buy the P Bass, you won't regret doing that! Enjoy it, guys!
