I don't think anything says rock 'n roll when it comes to bass guitars as much is the Fender American standard P – bass. This is such an iconic and brilliantly built guitar that is led to it being one of the most highly used bass guitars for any style of music. This guitar compared to the jazz bass from Fender has a little bit different tone and feel. This is more of a rock tone where as the jazz bass is probably a little bit more smoother tone. Both are good tones for most music and pretty much all rock music and pop music.

UTILIZATION


It features 20 frets and it has also a volume and tone control knob. The pick ups are slightly off centered so they give it a unique look and feel. The paint job has a nice sunburst paint job which is very gorgeous and extremely beautiful in my opinion. I also like the pick guard that matches this guitar very well. Looks like a vintage guitar straight out of the 60s. This is a four string bass and that is pretty much about it as far as features.

SOUNDS


This is a kind a guitar that is going to be extremely versatile for pretty much every style of music. I can't honestly think of any style of music that this bass guitar would not work in. It is extremely versatile and the tone is very warm and blossoming. It has great overtones that really fill up the sonic spectrum and bring out the low end bass tones. It's a guitar that will allow the bass guitarist to bring in their own natural style of playing.


OVERALL OPINION


You can find these guitars pretty easily as you can find a gas station in a major city. They're very popular and the market is very saturated with these guitars. You can find one new or even used and it will not take you very long. They're available online and pretty much any music retailer in the world. It's a great starting point if you're learning the bass and if you can afford one I recommend buying one.
