    Im wondering if this bass the one with the p pickup and humbucker as has a passive option?And what it sounds like for slap type funk any in any mode?I have a 1980 fender specail presicion with active option and I found i think p-bass sound best for slap and funk stuff and want to possibly upgrade.

    American Deluxe P's do not have a passive mode. They are extremely versatile tone-wise and cover a wide range of sounds given the active setup and the P/humbucker configuration. The humbucker in this case is really two j pickups put together. The bass will most definitely do the funk! :)
