OVERVIEW

We've teamed up with Fender to bring you another great-sounding, unique one-off bass loaded with premium features. The exclusive Deluxe PJ Bass has a Precision Bass body with the neck of a 70s Jazz Bass. It features the appointments you've come to love about most Fender instruments like an alder body, urethane finish, maple fingerboard and a Fender high mass bass bridge. Perhaps the most interesting feature aside from the mash-up of P Bass body and J Bass neck is the combination of Precision and Jazz Bass pickups. With this combo you get the best of both worlds. The growl of the passive J Bass bridge pickup blends perfectly with the passive P Bass split single coil neck pickup with the help of the volume and tone controls.

Precision and Jazz hybrid, exclusive.

FEATURES
  • Precision Bass body with Maple 70' Jazz Bass neck
  • Sea Foam Pearl color
  • Alder body with urethane finish
  • Urethane body finish
  • Gloss urethane neck finish

  • Maple fingerboard
  • 20 Frets
  • Black block inlays
  • 34 Scale

Comments about Fender Deluxe PJ Bass:

Absolutely beautiful bass .had to do a set up on it came detuned tuned to 440 and had buzz at zero fret on a string did neck adjustment took care of issue did a string change to my personal favorite DR STRINGS flatwound had to file in groves in the nut there were none retuned to 440 and did a action and intenation setup and it plays like one of my high end rickenbacker basses. Total time to get her all set up was less than a hour.this is the best of both worlds the neck is slim and fast the body is smaller than a standard j and has the 2 pickups and a blend knob you can get the tone you want. Sounds great out of my gallen kruger and my trace elliot.

    Comments about Fender Deluxe PJ Bass:

    I've only been playing for a few years, so I still consider myself a novice. Now that that's out of the way let's get to it.
    I was leery of buying a bass I couldn't put my hands on. However, sales and service was wonderful. Very courteous and responsive. I placed my order last Thursday or Friday and took delivery on the following Wed.
    I took a chance on this as an open box with "scratches" on the pickguard. Accordingly I got it at a very nice price. It was supposed to come with a soft case but that got forgotten. E-Z P-Z though. One call to customer service and a quick review of our correspondence, to verify that a gig bag was included and customer service said it will be shipped today!
    The scratched pickguard? The blemish was only on the plastic protective sheeting! This thing is gorgeous. Not a flaw or blem anywhere. The neck is buttery smooth and fast. Man is it fast. The Tonal colors possible are exactly what I've been after. And I already own a Fender P and a Fender J. I also have a Thunderbird. That gives me all the tones and the thin line neck but it's a real neck diver and takes time to dial in the right sounds I want.
    Why only four stars? I've only had it for a day and just through one 90 min. set. It still has that "new car smell". Ya know what I mean. I'll update in a couple of weeks.
    I play primarily rock, Nirvana, Weezer, Foo's, Green Day and Classic rock & some prog on the side.

        Comments about Fender Deluxe PJ Bass:

        I bought this bass because some of the great features, but was unsure how the Mexican build quality would be. I hate to sound like a snob, but I believe the USA made instruments are far better than the imported stuff for professional use. This bass is built beautifully, feels solid, and sounds, plays and looks awesome. What a piece. The Sea Foam Pearl finish is nicely done and very cool different.This bass can give you almost any tone you are looking for depending on where you position your right hand, and it has sustain for days. No real hum under stage lights to speak of and it stays in tune with great intonation with nice low action. I may get called upon often.What a bargin

          Comments about Fender Deluxe PJ Bass:

          This bass arrived in tune, intonation set correctly, and the action was very good. I changed the strings and I'm in love again. The finish has a small blemish and I thought about sending it back, but I like the way it feels and plays so much that I changed my mind. The blemish is not an issue any more. Best bass I own.

          I think it should come with a case, but that's just me.

          Overall - 5 stars :)

            Comments about Fender Deluxe PJ Bass:

            This bass came ready out of the box! I couldn't believe how great the feel and adjustment of the neck was. Typically, I'd have to take my new bass to have them adjusted after receiving them. Not this one. The neck was great and the hight of the strings was just about where I like them. Even the stock Fender strings weren't bad. Although I did change those a few days after. Hey, I love DR strings and that's a I'll ever play in my babies. But I digress. The pups on this bass are just phenomenal. I really can't say enough about them. The J-bass Noisless pup is pretty awesome. Not to mention the 70's maple Jazz neck. It helps give your overall tone a different feel.

            I saw this in a local GC And instantly fell in love with it, I picked it up and it felt right at home in my hand's , Plugged it in and was blown away, Roll the bridge pickup back a little bit and get all the punch you look for in a P-Bass with the clarity of a Jazz. If you are looking for an Already Modded Fender P-Bass this is it. I would'nt change a thing about the bass it self. Yes a Case or at least a Good Gig bag would be nice but thats just nit picking.

            Comments about Fender Deluxe PJ Bass:

            I'm happy w the purchase, but in case anyone from Fender or MF reads this I want to give some feedback on the quality control issues that persist with MIM fenders. Alot of questionable QC problems slip by, especially on your "Special run" instruments.

            These models often ship w noticeable imperfections, and even actual damage that seemingly occurs in the assembly process.

            Received my PJ deluxe, and when I opened the sealed box there were scratches across the back of the body, deep enough to be thru the finish. The front looked a little rough too like it was put face down on a surface. I thought maybe I had a re-stock, but the boxes were sealed so I know this is how it was shipped from the factory. I am otherwise happy so since it was mostly on the back I've decided not to return it.

            Otherwise it's a nice instrument, the features are a dream version of a custom bass. Jazz neck, P-body, both sets of pickups, and I like the passive version ( I also own the active deluxe special). This is what you would get if Geddy Lee mated with a P-bass. Pretty Cool.

            Here are the real specs I was able to find online. The description above is not quite accurate, it's not a fender hi mass bridge, it's a leo quann. The jazz pickup is a noiseless one, both upgrades are better than advertised. Get it and you will enjoy, as long as you dont get one with tons of quality issues.

              Comments about Fender Deluxe PJ Bass:

              I had the pleasure to play this bass a few times in local GC stores. My first reaction came from the weight and feel of the instrument; it's not too heavy and is very smooth. I enjoyed the maple neck found on this bass over other Fender basses with darkwood fingerboards. I decided to plug it into a TC Electronic 500W amp and cabinet to see how the bass could handle smaller amps and I was further surprised. If you dial the bass and amp right, and it doesn't take much, you can really get anything you want. Having the PJ combo provides a lot of sonic flexibility that avoids having to change the amp a lot. I was sorry to put this guy down on its stand.

                  Just got this one in the black finish. Took a gamble since there's no documented specs at the time of this review. Bad %$# II Bridge(yeah MF censors reviews), Passive Electronics, Noiseless J Pickup, jazz Bass neck. Terrific fit and finish out of the box. Unfortunately, it did not come with a gig bag..a bit of a let down considering the price. Regardless, I've been waiting for Fender to make a nice P-Bass with a PJ setup...this is it!
