Nice Precision

Puscifer, 28.02.2018
I needed a bass for my home-studio and a jazzbass or other more expensive ones were a bit out of my reach, for the moment. It's as simple as it gets, with just volume and tone, but it's very well built and gets the job done. Delivers a balanced sound and with a bit of setup I managed to get the action just right. I've now started to use it outside the house and the deluxe gig bag has come in very handy. Just hoped it had came with strap locks.

Fender Precision bass Roger Waters Signature

Damien F., 05.04.2012
Not particularly fan of Roger Waters or even Pink Floyd, I bought this bass for the combination of maple touch, black body color, and Seymour Duncan SPB-3 microphone.
Basically, it's a Mexican Steve Harris (except the easel)!
The handle, varnished, is the good log PB57 style, with a radius even flatter. The grip can therefore be tricky for someone who comes from a Jazz bass or an Ibanez SDGR!
The maple key is also varnished.
The signature of Roger Waters is discreetly affixed to the back of the head.
The mechanics hold the agreement very well.
The brass nut is for me (but it is very personal) a more undeniable: indeed, it allows to play La, D and Vac solids which have almost the same sound as these same notes fretted. I know some people do not like it, preferring to have a clear difference between the empty note and the same fretted note.
The handle body junction is perfect, the handle positioning without play in the neck-pocket.
Under the black one-ply pickguard, shielded by an aluminum sheet, the electronic cavity is protected by an insulating paint. A ground wire typically connects one of the knobs to the bridge.
The sticker on the pickguard can be removed without any problems.
I replaced the easel and buttons, black, by the same chrome, to have a harmony in the fittings because the mechanical chrome.
You can set the action very low without frieze without difficulty.
And the sound, then?
When empty, the bass sounds clear and slamming.
Once connected, you realize the impressive output level of the SPB-3! Attention, I have saturated DI boxes entry level, where a PB RI57 did not create a problem!
Although it is Mexican, it does not sound at all like a Classic '50s, for example: it's more violent (SPB-3 oblige), we find the tremendous treble and powerful treble of the Steve Harris, but the mediums are Well present also, one should not be impressed by the theoretical frequency curve of the SPB3.
Despite everything, it remains a PB that we recognize from the first riff :-)
The tone control, unsurprising on a PB, has a very significant influence on the sound.
This bass is rather light, and as it is well balanced, you can play standing for hours!
It is delivered with a cover "Deluxe" very pretty, but a little light anyway!

In short, for me who plays blues, rock and hard rock, and who does not like to break my head with adjustments, it is the ideal bass: simple, effective, powerful, plug'n'play .
