Iconic sound, modernized with ceramic

Just because the Sonic Precision Bass has a single lone pickup doesn’t mean its range is limited! The Precision Bass pickup sound fuels countless rhythm sections past and present spanning vastly different styles such as hard rock, pop, reggae, and punk. Achieving pop-punk’s trebly plink, metal’s heavy chugs, or even reggae’s thick, wide thud is fast and easy with just a few tweaks to the Sonic P’s tone control. This spread of versatile tones get a final punchy boost from the pickup’s modern ceramic magnets. Expect familiar sounds, but with a little extra heft that’s comes in handy when connecting to multi-effect pedals or a USB recording interface.

Maple neck for fast fretting

With its glassy maple neck and fingerboard, the Squier Sonic Precision is fast-fretting player across all 20 frets. From pros to beginners, players value the slick speed maple provides. The Sonic P’s neck features a “C” shape, a modern standard that’s comfortable for most players, plus a protective and smooth satin finish as a finishing touch. Many believe that a maple neck and fingerboard adds “brightness” to your tone, which is especially handy once you’re ready to leap out of the pocket and into the spotlight with tasty bass solos or riffs.
