Overview

We've teamed up with Fender to bring you another great-sounding, unique one-off bass loaded with premium features. The exclusive Deluxe PJ Bass has a Precision Bass body with the neck of a 70s Jazz Bass. It features the appointments you've come to love about most Fender instruments like an alder body, urethane finish, maple fingerboard and a Fender high mass bass bridge. Perhaps the most interesting feature aside from the mash-up of P Bass body and J Bass neck is the combination of Precision and Jazz Bass pickups. With this combo you get the best of both worlds. The growl of the passive J Bass bridge pickup blends perfectly with the passive P Bass split single coil neck pickup with the help of the volume and tone controls.

  • Precision Bass body with Maple 70' Jazz Bass neck
  • Sea Foam Pearl color
  • Alder body with urethane finish
  • Urethane body finish
  • Gloss urethane neck finish

    Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe PJ Bass:

    Just got one of these as a birthday present from my wife. How did she know to get me this particular bass? Because every time I went to my local Guitar Center, I would try as many basses as I could and always came back to this one. I prefer it over many of the American Fender basses, which is saying something. I absolutely love how it feels to play, and it has a really versatile sound with the PJ setup. If you are iffy about the color, by the way, the pictures do not do the seafoam pearl finish justice - it looks stunning. For this feel, sound, and visual impact it's a great price.

    Reading other comments, I see that some people have had some issues with the setup and the frets needing to be smoothed a bit. I have had neither of those issues with mine, but if mine did have those issues I would be so willing to have those repairs done - this bass is worth the trouble.

    This is only the 3rd bass I've ever owned (I'm relatively new to bass), but I can definitely see myself being very happy for a long time with only this bass. For the foreseeable future, the hunt is over.

      Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe PJ Bass:

      My wife bought this for my 50th year as a pro musician. I have always wanted a sea foam bass. For the past 30 years I have played 5 string basses exclusively....until now. This is a welcome addition to my arsenal of basses. This could become a new favorite even though its a 4 string. The PJ pickup combo gives me great flexibility with just one instrument. Think I'll put on a hip shot drop D tuner and it will solve some of the lower register issues. For a MIM it is well assembled and the paint is flawless. Its also much lighter than my other axes which will save my back.

        Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe PJ Bass:

        I bought this nearly a month ago with the expectations set forth by the other reviews, intending to use this as a backup. I've always been a much bigger fan of Fender's Jazz Bass than anything with Precision in the name. This. Sounds. Amazing! I have demoted my regular Jazz to backup just to get a chance to play this on more of my band's songs! The tone versatility, the feel, everything about this bass says: "make me your go-to bass guitar for life." I've read a lot of complaints about having to shave off fret ends; I have had no such problems, all frets are flush with the neck. The only issue I've had is some rattling along all four strings; nothing a quick and easy saddle adjustment couldn't fix.

        Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe PJ Bass:

        Overall, this is a very nice instrument. I really like the fast neck, and clean sounds. As most people have pointed out, expect to either grind the frets yourself or have them professionally dressed. They are just way too rough out of the box. Also, I agree with the other reviews that suggest that the J pickup is a bit weak. It sounds okay, but the P pickup is clearly much louder. All that aside, I love the look of the seafoam. It's a great instrument which is apparently selling like crazy. I think that's why the price was raised by $100 recently.

          This Bass has the best feel and sound I just love it, it sounds and plays better that my MIA jazz bass, (go figure) I can see up grading the p/u's some day, other than that it's perfect.

            Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe PJ Bass:

            I've never had great luck with MIM Fender basses in the past. At best they were good, and at worst they were not up to the newer Squier standards.

            This bass has changed my perception on that by quite a bit. I was going after an MIA standard P when this caught my eye. No, it wasn't the sea foam color. I'm not actually a huge fan; but don't hate it either. I do like a maple fret board, but wasn't really looking for the block markers either.

            No, what caught me was the way it played and the way it sounded. It was probably the fourth or fifth bass I auditioned that day; and eventually played about fifteen. Perhaps if the local GC would have had more stock, I would have played a few more. I just kept coming back to this again and again. I finally just put it on a stand and started to compare everything else back to this. I played a few Schecter, a couple of MM and Sterlings, even VM Squiers. This bass just did it all for me with tonal options that were on par with the similar MIM active PJ. In the end, the quality won me out.

            To say my MIJ Geddy Lee is getting lonely is quite a compliment for this bass. That has always been my favorite; and may be again. However, I keep picking up the sea foam time and time again while the GL sits cuckolded.

            If nothing else, give it a try. It may not be the exact fit for you, but it is at least worthy of an extended audition.

            Once the fret edges were dressed and a change to Ernie Ball Cobalt Flats, the bass just plays like butter and sounds amazing. Couldn't be happier. Highly recommend this guitar.

            Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe PJ Bass:

            This is a really GREAT bass - it is now my #1 out of 20 or more that I own. The appearance is stunning - maple with Seafoam Green and the finish is perfect. The neck is nice and slim - just what I like, and easy to play.

            The combination of the solid P sound that fits everywhere, with the ability to add a little growl from the bridge pickup is perfect. The bridge pickup COULD be a little hotter, but not a big deal.

            While it had a nice sound with the factory rounds, I put some T.I. Jazz Flats on it, and the sound is now just so perfect - solid and punchy without any zinginness or finger noise. It is perfect for our Classic Rock and Blues.

            My ONLY complaint is that the fret ends are a little rough - Not as nice as my 2 MIA Fenders - but I guess that this is to be expected at the lower price. Not a deal-breaker.

            YES - I am really pleased I bought this bass, it is going to get a lot of use, and everyone comments on how pretty it is.
