Fender announced that their American Standard series of guitars & basses will be rebranded as the American Professional Series.
It adds some new improvements to their existing line, most notably the pickups will be all replaced by V-Mod pickups designed by Time Shaw, new neck profiles (more vintage-like), taller frets, new hardshell case, and other minor changes. Here's a full comparison:
See the new set below; I like the changes but the color choices are very limited and I'm sad they dropped the turtleshell pickguards off the basses. They look very bland now.
Precision Bass (5 String also available)
Jazz Bass (5 String and Fretless also available)
