A deluxe version of Fender's best-of-both-worlds bass.

The Fender Deluxe P Bass Special 4-String Bass has a Jazz neck, a P Bass body, and a P/J combination pickup array with Vintage Noiseless pickups and active electronics. The P body is a little smaller and lighter, the J neck slimmer and faster, and the combined pickups give you just that much more to play with. A gold vinyl pickguard sets the Deluxe P Bass apart visually, and its satin-finish neck feels worn in from the get-go.

Includes a gig bag.

Features
  • Jazz neck
  • P Bass body
  • Vintage Noiseless Pickups (J bridge pickup, P center pickup)
  • Active electronics
  • Gold vinyl pickguard
  • Includes a gig bag

This is a very cool bass and the price is easy. Get it.

The best I have played

By Mark Payne

from Toronto, Ontario

Comments about Fender Deluxe P Bass Special 4-String Bass:

Being a bassist for 25 years, I have been a supporter of Fender since I picked up a guitar. Once I started getting more technical, I decided I need better action and a better sound. I did not have to leave Fender. This is the best bass I have played in regards to sound and action. Giving me tones the likes of John Entwistle and allowing me to play the neck as fast as I need to. Even people who do not play compliment the sound. I can't even buy another bass because I have my sound in this one. Great job Fender.

Awsome Bass!!

By Kenneth Burgner

from Delray Beach, Florida

Comments about Fender Deluxe P Bass Special 4-String Bass:

I just picked up a Fender Active P-Bass Special Deluxe the other day......this is a awesome bass!In a nut shell, it is a P-Bass with an additional jazz pickup near the bridge and a jazz profile neck. It has an active three band EQ.I had a Geddy Lee.....this sucker absolutely blows it away as far as sound. It has a real fat low end when you need it or that classic jazz sound when you use the bridge PU. With both PUs on it has a rich full sound. It really is the BEST of both worlds!I thought my Geddy was a good slap bass....but not compaired to this bass. The P-Bass Special has the snap and bright highs that were missing from my Geddy.This is a MIM bass, and I got to tell you this sucker is built like a tank! The fit and finish is perfect as well as the fret work. The setup out of the box was pretty darn good, but I got the action even lower without any buzzing. I got mine with a maple fretboard.This bass sells for around $560, but with holiday sales coming up I am sure you can find one for less (I did!).I highly recommend looking into them.

Excellent Bass

By Mike Kerr

from Ohio

Comments about Fender Deluxe P Bass Special 4-String Bass:

Just received this bass and it was everything advertised. You cannot believe how great this bass sounds. I purchased the Blizzard Pearl color with the maple neck. It is very light and I never had to make any adjustments with the action. I am going to replace the bridge with a Leo Quann for increased 'sustain' though. What makes the playability even more enjoyable was the price. You will not regret this purchase.

It's Awesome!

By nedskid

from London, KY

Comments about Fender Deluxe P Bass Special 4-String Bass:

From the moment I first heard the rich deep tone on this bass, I knew it was the one for me. I have been a musician for over 8 years now and I have yet to hear a tone so deep and full from any other bass. All I can say is buy one and enjoy!

great versatile bass

By tc-YHZwx

from dallas texas

Comments about Fender Deluxe P Bass Special 4-String Bass:

This bass is outstanding. The tones you get off the active pickups are incredible. I also have the Fender Aerodyne Jazz. The rest of my bass collection is all neck thru bodies, Rick 4003, Schecter, Jackson and Ibanez Artcore. I love the sounds of both the Fenders, but the P-bass Special is hard to beat. The classic looks and the tones and punch even with the bolt on neck are amazing! I would recommend this bass to anyone. The free gig bag is nice, but you want a hard shell case for this bass. I can't wait to play live with this one. It truly is hard to put down. I also got the maple neck with maple fingerboard really plays nice with great action and I did not have any height adjustments to make.

Comments about Fender Deluxe P Bass Special 4-String Bass:

Really good bass guitar. I have a Marcus Miller Jazz bass 5 strings. I like it. It's a very nice bass with very good EQ response. (If you know how to make it sound good) Fortunately, I know how, and I`m glad I bought it. This bass is UNBELIEVABLY GREAT!!!

Mmmm??..... nice, good job for the price

By David "La Ola" band

from Guayaquil, Ecuador

Comments about Fender Deluxe P Bass Special 4-String Bass:

The bass is a very affordable and can get the best of every Fender you just have if you know how! I've played it with a Hartke combo kickback, and a Peavey but I found that the Galien Krueger 800 delivers the best results.This bass is really worth it. As a musician you have to know about amps and accessories to make your bass sound better.BOTTOM line I have a great bass!
