OVERVIEW

Precision and Jazz hybrid, exclusive.

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.

FEATURES
  • Precision Bass body with Maple 70’s Jazz Bass neck
  • Sea Foam Pearl color
  • Alder body with urethane finish
  • Urethane body finish
  • Gloss urethane neck finish
  • Synthetic bone nut
  • Maple fingerboard
  • 20 Frets
  • Black block inlays
  • 34” Scale
  • Chrome hardware
  • 3‐Ply parchment pickguard
  • Fender high mass bass bridge
  • Standard open gear tuning machines
  • Passive Fender Precision split single­-coil w/ passive Jazz Bass pickup in the bridge position

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.

        Comments about Fender Deluxe PJ Bass:

        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!
