    Hey, I have the opportunity to snag an almost mint 2010 american deluxe p bass for a great price "$700":hyper:

    Since I haven't had a chance to play the bass yet, I would really appreciate some feed back "good or bad" from some fellow talk bassers' who have owned or have at least played one of these basses.
    My main concern is the preamp. I used to own a 2005 american deluxe p and I hated the sound of the preamp. But from what i've read Fender has completely re vamped the line, so it might be a different story with the 2010.

    Any feed back would be great!

    Amateur. Take my advice for its resale value.
    I've never liked Fenders active offerings.

    Some companies just do stuff better than others (Fender vs Ernie Ball...)
  3. $700? Get it yesterday! I prefer the older AM Dlx P basses with the humbucker but the newer ones are great as well. If you don't like it you should be ale to move it for a bit of a profit.

    I've got one and it's amazing. Really great looking and sounding both in passive and active mode.
