A deluxe version of Fender's best-of-both-worlds bass.

The Fender Deluxe P Bass Special 4-String Bass has a Jazz neck, a P Bass body, and a P/J combination pickup array with Vintage Noiseless pickups and active electronics. The P body is a little smaller and lighter, the J neck slimmer and faster, and the combined pickups give you just that much more to play with. A gold vinyl pickguard sets the Deluxe P Bass apart visually, and its satin-finish neck feels worn in from the get-go.

Includes a gig bag.

Fender Deluxe P Bass Special 4-String Bass Features:

  • Jazz neck
    P Bass body
    Vintage Noiseless Pickups (J bridge pickup, P center pickup)
    Active electronics
    Gold vinyl pickguard
    Includes a gig bag

  • High Strings

    As reviewed by Ian Davis on 6/2/2011

    Went to GC to get the regular P-Bass, but they were sold out. One of the guys there showed me this P-Bass special for. I'm a guitar player, not a bass player, so I just took his advise & got it. I wanted to be able to drop the E to a D too, but I was able to drop it down to a C as well. It started sounding a little loose at C though. The neck seemed a little thin @ the nut, but it it expands greatly towards the body. Anyways, love this bass. The action on mine was very high. I was able to screw down the bridge screws about 7 turns before the strings started to buzz. & the sound is just amazing with the tonal range etc. Also, the bridge pick-ups are noticeably quieter than the neck's.

  • A Bass to Last you a Lifetime

    As reviewed by Nathan Sprague on 11/19/2012

    I've had the bass for about a 8 months now, and it's definitely the best out of my collection. Got it on sale because of a minor chip off of the pick guard, what a steal! Love the action of the strings, they're nice a low, for great comfort, and no buzz. In person, you'll realize how thin the neck is toward the nut, and makes it very comfy to play with. I've had no problems with this bass so far, and I doubt I will be having any in the future. A solid 5, this bass will last you many, many years.

  • The Bass I will Never get rid of!!!

    As reviewed by Matthew Muklewicz on 8/3/2012

    I love this bass! I have the black with maple fret board and looks great. I did replace the bridge with a babicz bridge, the vintage bridge did not hold up to my heavy hands. I also put a hipshot D-tuner on it. I do have to say that the set up out of the box was horrible. Once this bass had a good set up and some roto sound strings, it was out of this world. The sounds you can get out of this bass are unreal, finger picking, using a pick, slap, it does it all. It plays like butter. The p pickup is hotter than the j, but they both sound great,, I thought I was going to upgrade the pickups when I ordered the bass, but once I heard this bass with the babicz bridge on it I was in love with the sound. I would put this bass up against any bass at any price. Now if only Fender would make this same bass in a 5 sting.
