FENDER PRECISION Deluxe Active P-Bass Special P/J Noiseless PU Super Clean 62695


Regular price $799
Killer ebony P-bass. 

Description
This is a 2011 Fender Deluxe Active Precision Bass in black finish. This bass is 9.5/10 condition, super clean. Still has the protective plastic on the Noiseless pickups and on the pickguard, as well as the plastic overlay on the controls. Four controls are 1-Master Volume, 2-Pickup Select, 3-stacked pot Treble/Bass, and 4-Mid Boost/Cut. The active Noiseless pickups really have great tone and you can dial in way more sounds than a standard P-bass. Bass looks almost new. I found one tiny mark on the headstock (see pics) and there might be another tiny mark or two if you really look, but it's an easy 9/10 condition. When I got it the original top knob on the stackpot was missing, so I replaced it with another Fender knob I had. Weight is 8 pounds, 15 ounces. Comes with Deluxe gig bag. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere. Thanks for looking!

-- FREE USA shipping.

-- Ship within 1 business day--pro packing.

Guitar Setup
All our setups are done by our in-house trained luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!
 
Packing
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.

P/J Pickups, Active EQ, and Endless Tonal Choices
The Fender Deluxe Active P Bass Special churns out classic tones, modern sounds, and everything in between, by virtue of its 3-band active EQ with active/passive switch. Dial in powerful Precision Bass thump or growling Jazz Bass mids with this bass guitar's P-style Vintage Split single-coil neck pickup and dual-coil ceramic Noiseless J-style bridge pickup. A pan pot allows for precision blending of the pickups. The Deluxe Active P Bass Special's comfortable C-shaped neck is a delight to play, and its HiMass bridge yields excellent resonance and sustain. The Fender Deluxe Active P Bass Special is great for just about any style of music.

Familiar tones with a twist

Onboard the Deluxe Active P Bass Special is a duo of Fender single-coil pickups. A Vintage Split single-coil bass pickup in the neck and a dual-coil ceramic Noiseless J-style pickup with nickel-plated pole pieces in the bridge deliver the familiar Precision Bass punch and growl with more sonic options. But the Noiseless circuitry eliminates unwanted signal noise and hum, making the bass ideal for live performance and recording. The 3-band active preamp adds wide-ranging tonal control with a switch to go passive if you so choose. And the alder and maple construction with a maple fingerboard is a tried-and-true combination that has proven itself over decades.

C-shaped neck plays fast and smooth

Fender Precision Basses have been known for their thick, sustaining neck profiles since their introduction. Their chunkier feel has made them a favorite among thousands of bassists worldwide. The Deluxe Active P Bass Special continues the tradition with a comfortable maple C-shaped neck, 1.5" synthetic bone nut, and fast-playing 12"-radius fingerboard with 20 medium-jumbo frets. The bassists here at Sweetwater love the well-broken-in feel of this neck.
