Fender Deluxe Active Precision Bass Black 2006
Fender Deluxe Precision, made in Mexico 2006, black. It's like a P, but meaner! What you get here is a classic P shape with a slightly slimmed down neck, an added Jazz style pickup in the bridge and an active bass/treble boost and a pickup balancer, plus a Hipshot D-tuner added later for good measure. That makes it a very versatile instrument; you an dial in all a tone for whatever the situation requires. The neck is straight and sturdy, it feels great in the hands and has a nice lightly-played-in feel. The original gold anodized guard is included, but the custom cut black single ply guard really adds a certain classy aura. This is a great do-it-all gigging bass; it'll happily switch from a power metal throwdown on Friday night to a shiny corporate gig on Saturday. Deluxe as, bud.
