Fender Deluxe Active Precision Bass

For players who find themselves alternating between a variety musical styles at a moment's notice, the Deluxe Precision Bass Special is the perfect companion on stage and in the studio. Designed for powerful, flexible tone with smooth playing feel, this robust and rich-sounding bass combines the best features of Fender's classic basses to create a "hybrid" model with sleek, authentic Fender style but is packed with new tones.

There's a wealth of useful tones hiding inside this bass' pickups and electronics. Powered by a punchy vintage-style split-coil Precision Bass pickup in the middle position and a growling Vintage Noiseless Jazz Bass bridge pickup, this bass rises to any occasion. The robust control scheme includes a three-band active EQ with treble, mid and bass controls--each with boost and cut to accurately shape your tone--along with a pan pot for precision blending of the pickups' potent sound. The active/passive switch makes it easy to access both vintage-styled and modern voices, further extending this instrument's sonic flexibility. The Fender HiMass bridge improves every note's sustain and resonance, while enhancing the attack for lively tone that lets your sonic personality shine through. The "C"-shaped maple neck is comfortable for all playing styles and hosts a 1.5" synthetic bone nut and fast-playing 12"-radius fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets.

The alder body bears a durable gloss polyester finish that looks great under the spotlight while being tough enough to shrug off the abuse of gigging and traveling. Classic Precision Bass appointments include knurled flat-top control knobs, nickel/chrome hardware, black pickup covers, pearloid dot inlays and a 3-ply B/W/B pickguard. A pure tone machine with classic Fender sound and style, the Deluxe Active Precision Bass Special is a true performer, equally at home on stage and in the studio. Includes deluxe gig bag.

- Side Mounted Output Jack
- White Pearloid Dot Position Inlays
- Single Disk String Tree

"Not too bad"
Overall: This bass is a great instrument for the money. I was switching back to a 4 string from 5 and 6 string basses and didn't want to spend too much. This seemed to fit the budget, had a ton of features, and fender tone is second to none in my book. When the bass is in passive mode it has great highs and lows, as well as sustain. There is no tone control in passive mode, but that works for me. The finish was great despite purchasing a blemished model, the neck is straight and the action was perfect for me. The high mass bridge is a great upgrade leading to tons of sustain and uninhibited tone. The intonation was about a semitone off on every string, but that was easily corrected. The active mode on this bass sounds amazing, however is no stranger to that standard fender buzz/hum. It was something I had hoped fender had resolved given the other upgrades and much cheaper basses not having this problem. That being said, I ended up pulling the pickguard off and applying my own copper shielding to the cavities. Once inside it was easy to see the problems, there was a very thin layer of shielding paint in all of the electronics cavities, only decent shielding was on the back of the pickguard. I'm glad I made the decision to open up the guitar for 2 reasons. The first was the shielding took care of almost all of the hum/buzz. the second reason was that I discovered the electronics were not grounded to the pickguard, the wire had come loose. It made must enough contact that the bridge/strings/tuners were grounded, but a good shake or jolt could have caused much bigger grounding issues (we all know that would have happened while gigging somewhere). In the end I had to remove the bridge, expose more wire from the its shielding and put everything back together. Now this bass sounds great no matter the mode. After about an hour of work on the bass I can say I absolutely love it and would have happily paid much more than I did. This covers all types of playing with the active/passive mode and fits just about any genre.
