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.

I was so psyched when I ordered this, couldn't wait to plug it in and get busy with it. Unfortunately when I finally got it, I had a hard time getting the cable in (turns out there was a loose wire impeding the path). When I finally managed to get it in, the sound was poor at best, probably because of the loose wire. The tuners were loose and the bridge seemed flimsy. I replaced the tuners with a set of hip-shot, replaced the pick-ups with Bartolini's and replaced the bridge. It sounds really good now and it stays in tune like a champ, but I shouldn't have had to sink another 600 bucks on it. Where the hell is Fenders quality control? It's the first Fender bass I've bought, I do have a Fender amp that I love, but I will never buy another Fender bass.
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!
This bass is great. it has a nice punchy low end and a great high end. it's defentaly the bass for rock n' roll or 80's rock. it sounds very close to Duff's bass no matter what amp u go through. it's a great bass from a great bass player i highly recommend it.
I bought this thing back in the summer as a back-up bass to my Geddy Lee model. Lets just say that it aint no back-up bass! This thing rocks, plays and sounds as good or better than it looks! I have not put this one down and play it at all my gigs. GREAT BASS!!! Buy this, you wont be dissappointed! It has great bottom end, punchy mid range and great highs for runs on the high end. Just a great all round Bass for whatever your needs may be....
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.
