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 fastplaying 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.

Comments about Fender Deluxe Active Precision Bass Special , Maple Fingerboard:
I have been wanting to buy something new for a while, and when I found this guitar, it just made sense. Sleek satin maple neck with a Jazz size nut bolted to a beautiful Precision bass body. The fit and finish is remarkable, and right out of its box and foam bag, it was totally playable. I have yet to make any adjustments. The addition of the active/passive switch is a plus. Active or passive, this guitar is a sexy bucket of tone. In passive position, the EQ is bypassed, and the only achievable tone adjustments are made through the blending of pick ups. Not a big deal, because there are still some great tone to be found. It's also super quiet with no hum. It's about as heavy as my Mexican jazz bass and feels great slung on a strap. The gig bag is great and seems like it's constructed very well.
