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' 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
  • 3Ply 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 Special Edition Deluxe PJ Bass:

    My wife bought this baby for my 50th year as a pro musician. After getting it set up, I played it for first time at a gig , and I was absolutely pleased with the tonal flexibility the P/J PU array allows. If only this came in a 5 string model...(Hint) This is the only 4 string I now play and I will install a Hip Shot Drop tuner which will give me a little more on the bottom end. ...If it only came in a 5 string model... :-)

      Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe PJ Bass:

      I went in to a music store with my wife to buy a string saddle for my guitarists ES335. She saw this seafoam green thing and fell in love with the color.She insisted I get it down and try it. I am a traditionalist and didn't THINK I liked PJ's or green or black blocks on a maple neck. BOY WAS I WRONG! The bass just felt amazing right off the shelf. I fell in love immediately as I am a Precision guy who likes mine with the Jazz neck. Another thing that surprised me was the tone flexibility. I like the precision sound and find a single coil Jazz too trebley. With the P pickup maxed you can adjust the J until you get just enough of it to bring out the sound of the d and g strings that is missing in a P bass without being too tinny. No single coil buzz either! Another thing I didn't think of was how well you can see the block inlays and find your way around the fretboard in weird lighting. The only minor issue as others have mentioned is the factory tuners. I have never been a fan of Fender tuners and will probably get a set of Hipshots eventually. (Fender, why don't you partner with this great tuner company?) Yes, I would recommend this Mexican wonder to ANYONE.

        Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe PJ Bass:

        I have been a Bass player for over 35 Years. When it comes to a 4 string Bass it is so hard to decide between a JAZZ or a Precision..........Now you Don't have to choose. You get the tone of both and the comfort of both all in 1. I am not overly crazy about the noiseless Jazz P-up but other than that this bass is AMAZING.

          Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe PJ Bass:

          I've had this bass for some eight months now. I'm spoiled. I sold my P Bass and hardly ever ply either my Jazz or Thunderbird. Every time I play one or the other it just makes me appreciate thid PJ Delux all the more. There has never been any issues with fret wire ends or lack of definition from the Jazz pickup.
          I'm playing mostly Alt. and Classic rock along with some punk and prog.
          My rig is all Hatke Amp, 4x10 and 1x18 Depending on the set I sometimes ad a Ashedown NM2 and a Boss DS-2, 90-95% of the time though it's all done with no pedal and playing the pup's and tone is all that I need, and the sound is incredible. I highly reccomend this guitar!!

            Perfect for me because I missed the bark of a Precision but love the Jazz neck. I also like the high mass bridge. I took it out of the box, strung it with flats and it works great for the surf/50-60's rock and roll band whose gigs I am allowed to ruin at this point.

                Way better than expected for a Mexican made product. With the proper set up (like a small truss rod adjustment) it plays spot on. Love the sound and sustain, the bridge is a big key to that. Very cool color, better in person.

                Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe PJ Bass:

                I was captivated by this bass several years ago when Fender first introduced it. But I wouldn't buy it because it was active, and I prefer passive basses. A few years later - problem solved! They re-introduced it in a passive version.

                I had been looking for a used one (generally a better value), but decided to snag one during the 4th of July sale. Thoughts:

                I was a bit concerned because it ships without a case or gig bag. But no problem there. It was secure, and double-boxed. Upon opening, I was immediately struck by how attractive it looks. While I've always liked the Fender Seafoam Green, I always preferred the lighter Surf Green. But this Seafoam Pearl appears to be somewhere in the middle, with a metallic look to it. Very nice.

                Pickups/Tone: I half expected to have to upgrade the pickups. I even looked around for either the Geezer Butlers or the Duncan SPB/J 1 set. But after playing it, I decided that the stock pickups sound just fine; and no upgrade is needed. Sounds great. I'm a flats guy, so I immediately threw on a set of GHS Precision Flats, and they sound killer.

                Two minor complaints: I'm not impressed with the tuning machines that come stock, and will probably upgrade them at some point. They're not horrible, but there are a few hesitation points when fine-tuning on some of them. What I mean is that while tuning up to pitch, they're not always as responsive as they could be. Slight turns sometimes result in no change in pitch. Then all of a sudden it'll "jump up" too far, and have to be backed off and re-tuned to pitch. But again, not badly. Not as bad as it sounds when reading this. Just not as responsive as the tuners on the American Fenders. The only other minor gripe is the back of the neck. I prefer more of a satin finish on the back of the neck. YMMV, as some actually prefer this thicker, more poly-type finish.

                Bottom line? I'm glad I bought it. Love the look and the tones available. Probably not going anywhere!

                I got the Sea Foam Pearl color and it is just magnificent. I did some minor setup myself -- action and intonation -- and now this bass plays so smooth and sounds so nice, classic Fender. I've received many compliments already playing it out. This ones a gem!

                  Purchased this bass for my 14 year old granddaughter. She takes bass lessons every week and needed a quality bass upgrade. There were no blemishes or scratches as advertised, just remove the plastic protection on the pick guard and pickups! Sounds great through a Bassman Amp and the GK Fusion
                  Amp. This Bass will last for years and provide great performance for most skill levels.

                    Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe PJ Bass:

                    I am genuinely surprised at how high quality this instrument is for a Mexican made. The sound from the pickups really is noiseless and they blend together beautifully. This is my first PJ, and I though the J pickup would just add some growl and clarity, but it actually opens things up in a major way. The P Pickup is solid P sound through and through, nothing diminished. But rolling on the J Pickup and putting the tone up half way gives a gnarly growl to it, especially when played with a pick, almost like T-40, or even a rick tone. But cranking the J and the tone all the way up takes you into slap territory I didn't expect from a P. Thing is a thumpy beast and feels great.

                    The fret ends are not boutique smooth filed, but by no means are they a hindrance or distraction as I have experienced on other Mexi-basses. The black binding and block inlays on the neck are so nice, and look even better with a black pickguard. The only stylistic thing I am wanting from this is a matching headstock, that would send this thing over the moon with style.

                    The bridge is nearly identical to a Badazs II, and the weight of the bass is very balanced. Tuners are nothing special. One thing I noticed was that after pulling off the pickguard, the shielding paint is not painted around the entire cavity, just along the bottoms so something to be aware of if you're a tinkerer.

                    The only downsides are that it doesn't come with a case for that price, and that the factory setup was bad. I bought a new Squire that came out near perfect out of the box, intonation, neck, and string height were all spot on. This bass needed adjustments all over, but after taking the time to make all the adjustments she played beautifully.
