Anything related to Appetite for Destruction is pure gold. Or should we say pure multi-platinum? As the best-selling debut album of all time, that collection of songs has become one of the most iconic in rock history. This signature bass is modeled after the instrument Duff played on that album. Featuring an '80s Jazz Bass inspired Precison Bass build, Duff McKagan signature design, and Guns N Roses rock sound, this bass is an awesome choice for GNR fans or anyone who wants a super cool bass.

'80s Jazz Bass Inspired P-Bass Build
During the recording of Appetite for Destruction, Duff was using a '80s Jazz Bass Special. Fender decided to pay tribute to that instrument by creating a player-friendly P-Bass that encompassed some of the same characteristics. This P-Bass is cut from alder for rich, defined tones and a nice, audible attack. The neck is maple shaped into a modern "C" and capped with a 20-fret bound rosewood fingerboard.  

Duff McKagan Signature Design
This instrument has a unique signature style that can only be attributed to Duff. The Duff McKagan Deluxe Precision Bass sports beautiful pearloid block inlays with a "12" numerical inlay at the 12th fret. It has a custom headstock logo and a really cool dark metal custom neck plate, engraved with a skull and cross bones. To add some functionality to this bass, there's also a Hipshot Bass Xtender. One flip of the lever will drop tune the instrument's E string down to D.

Guns N Roses Rock Sound
This bass is teeming with great sound from these one-of-a-kind electronics. It continues the hybrid theme by featuring a Seymour Duncan STKJ2B Jazz Bass bridge pickup and a Vintage-Style Split Single-Coil Precision Bass middle pickup. There's a TBX (treble bass expander) tone control which functions like a normal tone control, until positions 6 through 10 where the resistance drops and additional bass, treble, and presence come through. This Precision Bass also has a 3-position toggle switch to engage each pickup individually or both together. Bottom line - nothing is out of reach with this killer bass.

Duff should be proud


Nice instrument. Wide spectrum of tones. Very rich sound on its own with no coloring from pedals.



Wait...wait until the rush on these is over!


This product was on back order, and when it finally arrived, the rushed assembly was clearly evident. The tuners are all discolored because the protective plastic was put on too fast. The pots are at different heights exposing the silver hardware underneath, and the pick guard was scratched at a split in the protective plastic. All will need to be repaired/replaced. The feel is great, and the painted neck I am used to with my Ric. The sound is great as well...has a nice growly tone. My warning would be to wait until the rush for these is off, and you get a more carefully manufactured model. I for one, am sadly disappointed.
