excellent bass guitar

Borbeni, 21.02.2018
Consistently well-built and great sounding, this version of the ?P? bass offers active electronics and a very attractive price.

The look of this four-string bass is classic with its double cutaway body and Fender headstock. It also features a modern ?C?-shaped neck that plays well with a modern 12? radius and medium jumbo frets. The bass we tested was made in Mexico, and the finish and assembly details were perfectly done. If you like the feel of a Fender bass, you?ll feel at right at home with the familiar feel of this model.

In the electronics department is really where this bass is different. This Deluxe model has a versatile ?PJ? pickup configuration with a P-style Vintage Split single-coil neck pickup and dual-coil ceramic Noiseless J-style bridge pickup. The combination offers remarkable tonal versatility. Add to that a three-band EQ with treble, mid and bass boost/cut and an active/passive switch that allows you to switch between the traditional sound of a Precision Bass and all the variation presented by active electronics. It did take some playing time to get used to the location of the boost/cut controls, but the remarkable changes in tone that you can achieve is well worth the effort.

The tried-and-true combination of semi-hard alder and hard maple construction with a rosewood or maple fingerboard has proven itself over decades. Fender?s HiMass bridge on this instrument has a contemporary look and comes with the manufacturer claims of increased attack and sustain. As the name implies, it?s weighty and with lots of mass comes this bass?s great sustain, precise intonation and tuning stability. Two nine-volt batteries, to support that active electronics, are mounted in quick access carriers on the back of the body for easy replacement.

This hybrid version of Fender?s traditional Precision Bass retains the instrument?s classic look, solid playability and classic sound. It adds modern active electronics that make the bass more capable of getting new tones. No matter what style of music you play, you can find the bass tone you need and great playability with the Fender Deluxe Active Precision Bass.

New Fender "Deluxe precision bass Special"

Jean-François910, 14.10.2016
Bought for live and studio use.
When unpacking the bass throws. No lacquer defect.
It is really a very beautiful instrument.

The body of my copy is made in 2 parts of alder. You really have to concentrate to see the junction on the back (invisible on the front of the bass). The "sunburst 3 tons" is very well done. The black plate 3 ply is very class and arrives protected by a plastic film ditto for the microphones.

The handle is made of a single piece of maple with no knots or defects. The satin varnish that protects it is of the most beautiful effect and very pleasant to the touch. The width of the nut is that of the jazz bass (38,1 mm) so easier to play for small hands (this is my case). With a radius
Of 12 "the key is flatter and the handle is faster.

As regards the electronics of the instrument:
Microphones are very good I would not "upgrade" this bass as is often done to do on the Mexican Fender. The micro precision is well fished and the micro "Jazz bass noiseless" allows to bring other nuances to the sound.
The bass is active or passive: a swictch allows to choose. This is a real plus because the old model did not allow it.
Potar 1 master volume / potar 2 balance between microphones /
Potar 3 equa bass / treble (2 in one) and finally potar 4 equa mid.
The pre-amp is powered by two 9-volt batteries: No screws to disassemble for replacement.
In short it is beautiful, it sounds, it is versatile and it is a myth this bass. Foncez the value for money is very good if compared to a PB us with the same electronics. This bass holds comparison with models made in USA and will suit for professional use.
The only downside but that's important: The cover has only DELUXE name. It is imperative to invest in a good box (SKB for me).
