Comments about Fender American Deluxe Precision Bass:

This bass simply creates incredible tone, each note thumps, sustains and resonates to produce a truly fantastic sound. That alone is worth the price of this bass, however, switching the active/passive to active and you get more of a growl with each of the notes, giving it a more electric feel to your playing. The best part of this bass is your ability to create a myriad of different tones by adjusting the blend knob, which controls your classic P bass pick ups and the Single J pickup. I tend to play blended to about 60% P pick ups and 40% J. To me, this sounds like the classic P bass sound (boomy) but with touch of J tone giving me the warm clarity that I love about J basses. Truly awesome bass all around, construction, finish are world class and the new case is also very nice. I highly recommend to anyone looking to upgrade their gear, but for people looking the buy an american standard P bass- Strongly consider this model, for 300 more it is so worth it.
