If I could only have one bass, the Fender Precision would be it!
There ain't nothing I can't do with this toneful, reliable workhorse. I can slap the funk out of it, I can grind out some mean rock and metal tones (just ask Steve Harris), I can pluck some cool jazz with it (Fender Jazz players, keep yer jackets on), I can do country with ease, and I can string it up with some flats, break out the hard pick, and do some stylin Carol Kaye thump'n groove.
Now, I've owned, gigged, and recorded with a variety of electric basses, but I keep comin back to the simplicity and monster tone of the Precision. No, she ain't the prettiest bass ever made, but she's got it where it counts: tone, punch, and TONE!
over and out
