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, Rosewood Fingerboard:
I had been looking at purchasing one of these new for about a month when a used one came up for a nice price, I had to grab it. After new strings, a proper set up and some pick up tweeks here and there, this thing is awesome. So many different tones, from a deep almost sorrowful moan to a growl, and everything in between. Construction is solid, I hope if you buy yours new it comes set up a little better than mine did. The hardware is your typical Fender stuff, good quality. The tuners are tight and seem to help the bass keep in tune, I've been banging on it for over a week, a couple hours a day and have only had to make minor adjustments. The neck is fast and smooth, the fretwork is good, no edges or burs. Again, best thing about this bass is the tones and sounds you can create. You can get that P bass sound as well as a very good smooth jazz sound. With a little tweaking and dialing it in just right you can even get it to growl a little, kind of similar to a Stingray. Very cool bass, couldn't be happier with it! Oh, and the sea foam green looks amazing!
