Sharing the stage with the likes of Axl Rose, Slash, and Dave Navarro would seem like a tall task for most bass players, but American hard rock legend Duff McKagan has always made his presence felt no matter who is he playing with. The low end master for Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver, McKagan has play a massive role in shaping the sound of American Rock music. Watch as he and Matt Sweeney breakdown his approach to carving out his own space, his longstanding love for punk, and the Fender Precision Bass.

Without the Fender Precision Bass, the original electric bass, dance floors and rock clubs everywhere would be empty. As music evolves, our instruments change in lockstep; the end result is today’s version of this seminal instrument—the American Professional Precision Bass. Boasting a single Michael Bump-designed V-Mod split-coil Precision Bass pickup and the infamous ’63 P Bass neck profile, the American Professional Precision Bass gives you the power to make your voice heard.
