The Fender Elite models (Precision, Strat and Tele) were made in 1983 and sold between 1983 and the start of 1985. They were “premium” models, similar in concept to the current “Deluxe” models and followed on from the Special models of the early 1980s. The concept was to revise some of the existing Fender designs with new technology, while retaining as much of the “classic” appeal as possible.

The Elite series was meant to be the upscale version of both the existing line and the vintage reissues. The design parameters were pretty open, basically “what would the bass look like if it was designed today”.

The Precision Elite came in two basic models, a single pickup type and a dual pickup type. On top of this, there were choices of a maple/rosewood or all maple necks, chrome or gold finish on the hardware.

The Precision Elite series was only made for two years (1983 – 1984.) This was Fender’s high-end line of the time and their second attempt at an active bass. This bass was made at Fender’s factory in California. The preamp and pickups were designed by Paul Gagon, who is Vice President of Technology at BBE Sound.

This collector owned bass is in very clean condition for its age showing almost no signs of use. The frets are great and it plays clean and all functions work as they should! Comes with a gig bag.
