Fender American Deluxe Hot Rod P 5-string

  1. Is there such a thing? There is such a bass on eBay with this description.

    I know Fender makes (or made) a Hot Rod P and an American Deluxe P, but I didn't know they combined the two, and in a 5-string at that. Can't seem to find any info on the 'net. Either the seller is mixed up or this is an extremely rare beast.

    The Fender P5 is a Deluxe, not a Hot Rod. I believe the bridge pickup on Hot Rod P-basses is a single-coil Jazz-style, whereas it's a double-coil humbucker on the Deluxes.

    AFAIK, no Hot Rod 5-string P-bass exists. I'm sure you are correct that the seller has simply made an error describing the bass.
  3. Thanks Fuzzbass. I've requested clarification from the seller, as well as the serial number. I'll post his reply here when I get it.
