Does any other company make a Precision Deluxe copy?

  1. Kinda like this:

    I like the hum/P pickup configuration. I can't even find the real deal for sale. The closest I saw was an SX but it had a jazz neck and...that...headstock :bag:

    You can get Warmoth to route you a body like that, I'm sure...

    That said, it is telling the Fender went back to the older P/J arrangement in their latest P-deluxe... The fat P'up Deluxe must not have been "all that"...

    It is "all that' to my ears. Only reason I own a Fender bass is that fat ol' humbucker. The OP can find a used American Deluxe from '96 to 2009, with that arrangement. great sounding basses.

    I gotta say, I recently bought a Schecter C4 Diamond series and I'm incredibly impressed with the build quality and sound.

    There are a number of P-deluxe copies around, you just need to keep looking.

    Oh yes, I can't think of even one example of a company canning something that was a good idea.
     
  8. That Schecter Diamond P Custom is mighty pretty, especially in metallic blue.

    Of course, I want a maple fretboard. But still, it's pretty.
     
  9. The neck will be slightly different..

    Hardware will be on par with Fender custom shops..

    MOST S basses will have dimarzios and allow for easy alteration.

    Sandberg, also available w/ 5-strings.
     
  11. That Schecter seems like a win. I wonder if I can switch the neck with the one from my Jazz....

  17. I have the 2009 P Deluxe, and the hum is very nice. I guess it's whatever you like at the end of the day, but I like the fact that even though it's two J singles as a hum, it's still completely different to a J config.

    I was disappointed to see that Fender has dropped the hum on the 10 model. :bawl:
