Signature looks, feel, and sound.

Designed for the man who has earned his place in rock history by holding down the low end for bands such as Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver, Fender's Duff McKagan Signature Bass Guitar is rock and roll all the way.

Based on the instrument he has used ever since the first GNR album, the Duff McKagan Signature bass is a distinctive, sleek, and full-sounding reissue of the '80s-era Jazz Bass Special, which combined a Precision Bass body with a Jazz Bass neck and a set of Precision and Jazz Bass pickups. That's all here, with a Pearl White finish, gloss-black neck and headstock, TBX circuit (treble/bass cut), black hardware, and custom skull-engraved neck plate.

Includes a gig bag.

  • Duff McKagan Special

    As reviewed by Kurt - aka TANK on 6/23/2010

    When I purchased this baby I had not held it in my hands and when she arrived I was very impressed. The craftsmanship was very good. The feel of the bass was solid. The finish was clear. Then I plugged her in. That was when I was shocked. The sound was very full, rich and clear. By switching between the pickups and the tone controls I made her do endless things from bright slapping to hard rocking 80 sounds. The action was a little high a quick adjustment and I was ready to roll. The first time I used her on stage; this baby got a lot of attention!! If you are looking for a bass that does it all, this is your baby. I would recommend this bass for anyone who is serious about tone and sound!

  • Coolest Bass I've ever played!!!!

    As reviewed by Matty Bonez on 5/16/2011

    I always wanted the original 80's Jazz Bass Special made in Japan so I was so excited when I saw that Fender came out with this Duff McKagan Signature bass. It looks amazing, it plays amazing, and it sounds amazing. I play in cover band and our set list ranges from Guns n' Roses to Lady Gaga and this bass get's so many different tones out of it that you will find the sound you are looking for. I have gotten nothing but compliments on how amazing this bass sounds and looks. This bass is helping me take take my craft to the next level. Duff Rocks!!!!

  • Don't know how it sounds

    As reviewed by Broox on 3/31/2008

    The body looks great and i have a good idea what the sound is like. 80's active special p is what it was modeled after or something like that and if you hear one of those your brain will just melt. Those basses sound amazing. Now to think of that and then these people sat down and refined the tone of the bass to get it even better. It has to sound good.
