What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:

C-shaped neck profile Comfortable, rounded oval shape
Precision Bass split single-coil pickup No hum; "bell-like" tone and clarity
Dual-coil ceramic Jazz Bass pickup High-output and bright; cuts through dense mixes

Product Description

You're likely to find the Fender Deluxe Active P Bass Special to be one of the most versatile basses in the entire Fender line. That's because it comes equipped with both a Precision Bass pickup in the middle position, and a dual-coil ceramic Noiseless Jazz Bass pickup in the bridge. This hybrid instrument not only gives you access to two totally unique sound sources -- it allows you to blend the output of the pickups to create new and unique combinations. Special, indeed!

P Bass Body, J Bass Neck

This dynamic instrument is made from an alder body cut with the classic P Bass contours. The neck, however, is a maple Jazz Bass design, cut in the modern C-shape profile that has proven consistently to be the smoothest and fastest-playing neck shape on Fender basses. There are 20 stainless steel frets here, all cleanly accessible, even in the highest positions. The neck plays with a comfortable 9.5-inch radius.

Hybrid Pickup Design: Like Two Basses in One

The distinguishing feature of the Fender Deluxe Active P Bass Special is the presence of both P and J Bass pickups. In the middle position you'll find a standard alnico split single-coil Precision Bass pickup, delivering a powerful, singing tone. Below that, in the bridge position, you've got the active dual-coil ceramic Noiseless Jazz Bass pickup with nickel-plated pole pieces and pan-pot switching.

Pan-Pot Pickup Blending and Active EQ

Underneath the pickups you've got controls for the highly musical-sounding active 3-band EQ. Treble, Mids, and Bass frequencies can all be adjusted here. Select your pickup -- or blend the outputs of both -- with the pan pot.

Rock-Solid and Ready to Rock

The hardware on the Fender Deluxe Active P Bass is chrome throughout. And the beveled gold vinyl pickguard looks darned stylish, too!

4.5 out of 5 (56 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"It rocks!!!"
Sound: I've paired it with a Fender Rumble 100 watt amp and the sound that I can get from that cuts through with ease when playing gigs. Perfect for classic/ blues rock. Ease of Use: The controls can be a bit tricky to use at times but apart from that, no complaints. Value: I paid £440($600ish) for mine, I think that it is one of the best basses that you can buy for this amount of money. Overall: I shall be keeping this bass for many years to come.
