Rating and Reviews: Fender Deluxe P Bass

Crank out punishing bass tone thanks to a killer combo of Precision and Jazz Noiseless pickups. Sculpt your tone even further with the 3-band active EQ.

Overall: I already own an Ibanez 5 string active SR bass and a custom G & L MJ active jazz base. But what was missing from my arsenal was that great P bass sound that only a Fender with a split front pickup could give. This bass gives me that. But on top of that, it also gives me that biting J bass bridge pickup that was made famous by the likes of Jaco. I'm digging the passive tone on this bass, but flip on the active electronics and it opens up a whole new tonal pallet. The bass is well made and lightweight. The build quality is solid. My only gripe is that the mid tone knob feels a little cheap compared to the others. Also, there's no tone knob in passive mode. But besides that, this bass is a solid player and I'm happy with it.

Overall: I needed to purchase a bass but I primarily play guitar and I didn't want to spend the money to get an American made just yet. This bass gives the best of both worlds with a precision and a jazz pickup. The active switch kicks the sound into high gear and you can control the blend of the precision pickup vs the jazz. The neck feels good and it's a great looking bass. I love the American standards but this bass is definitely worth grabbing.

Overall: I am new to bass playing and this bass is amazing. It needed some adjustments out of the box, but nothing too major. the finish is flawless and the active pick ups allow for a nice tone, with any amp. will buy again in a 5 string, once i learn more on this one.
