The Fender American Deluxe Precision Bass is designed with contemporary players at the heart; with modernised preamp circuitry, an incredibly powerful - yet thankfully quiet - N3 Noiseless pickup and Deluxe Split Single-Coil Precision Bass pickup, and select tonewoods all working together to create a functional - but also beautiful - instrument suited to both amateurs and professionals alike.
The body is crafted from select pieces of reliable and solid alder, giving a feel of strength and resilience. The alder produces a robust and clear tone with bags of sustain. A thin but highly durable layer of urethane, allowing the alder to resonate fully and produce a huge sound, protects the stunning olympic white finish.
Fixed to the body is the bright-sounding maple neck, adding plenty of snappiness and sparkle to the tone. The neck is shaped to the modern C profile shape, which gives it a slender, accommodating and fast-playing feel. Married to the neck is the rosewood fingerboard - home to 21 medium jumbo frets - which is shaped to a 9.5" radius, perfect for executing smooth string bends. Pearloid dot inlays adorn the fretboard, guiding your way in style. The neck is finished with gloss urethane on the front and satin urethane on the back. Both are highly resilient but the satin enables a much smoother playing surface, allowing you to move at speed along the neck without being hindered by a tacky-feeling surface.
As noted above, Fender have installed a Noiseless N3 single-coil jazz bass pickup in the bridge position - giving you fat tones without the unwanted hissing or buzzing - and a Deluxe Split Single-Coil Precision Bass pickup in the neck position - creating a super-snappy sound with bite and precision.
At your fingertips are a range of controls that allow you to sculpt the tone to exactly how you want it; with treble boost/cut, bass boost/cut, midrange boost, active/passive mini-toggle switch, and master volume control. The tonal versatility of this Deluxe P bass is impressive but its ability to master virtually any musical style from funk to country, punk to jazz is remarkable; for session and live musicians it is an absolute gem.
A 4-saddle high-mass vintage bridge is fitted to ensure the strings' connection to the body is as seamless as possible, whilst Fender lightweight vintage-style tuning machines with tapered shafts maintain tuning integrity throughout each and every performance. The lower wing of the body is protected from nicks and scrapes thanks to the perfectly position 3-ply black pickguard.
With the bass you'll receive a cable, strap and Schaller strap locks, so all you need to do is quite literally plug-in and play!
