    Picked this up last December from Sweetwater. Perfect condition and has never left the house. I copied and pasted the description and the only difference is this bass has the rosewood fretboard.

    Not interested in trades and will ship to CONUS, only. Thanks!!

    P/J Pickups, Active EQ, and Endless Tonal Choices
    The Fender Deluxe Active P Bass Special churns out classic tones, modern sounds, and everything in between, by virtue of its 3-band active EQ with active/passive switch. Dial in powerful Precision Bass thump or growling Jazz Bass mids with this bass guitar's P-style Vintage Split single-coil neck pickup and dual-coil ceramic Noiseless J-style bridge pickup. A pan pot allows for precision blending of the pickups. The Deluxe Active P Bass Special's comfortable C-shaped neck is a delight to play, and its HiMass bridge yields excellent resonance and sustain. The Fender Deluxe Active P Bass Special is great for just about any style of music.

    Familiar tones with a twist
    Onboard the Deluxe Active P Bass Special is a duo of Fender single-coil pickups. A Vintage Split single-coil bass pickup in the neck and a dual-coil ceramic Noiseless J-style pickup with nickel-plated pole pieces in the bridge deliver the familiar Precision Bass punch and growl with additional sonic options. The Noiseless circuitry eliminates unwanted signal noise and hum, making the bass ideal for live performance and recording. The 3-band active preamp adds wide-ranging tonal control with a switch to go passive if you choose. And the alder and maple construction with a pau ferro fingerboard is a tried-and-true combination that has proven itself for decades.

    C-shaped neck plays fast and smooth
    Fender Precision Basses have been known for their thick, sustaining neck profiles since their introduction. Their chunkier feel has made them a favorite among countless bassists worldwide. The Deluxe Active P Bass Special continues the tradition with a comfortable maple C-shaped neck, 1.5" synthetic bone nut, and fast-playing 12"-radius pau ferro fingerboard with 20 medium-jumbo frets. The bassists here at Sweetwater love the well-broken-in feel of this neck.

    Classic Precision Bass design
    Leo Fender brought us the Precision Bass back in the 1950s, and its classic body shape and comfortable neck continue to give today's Deluxe Active version excellent playability and a distinctive look. Players from all genres have embraced the P Bass, and it continues to be a favorite in the studio and on stages everywhere. As with so many of Fender's original designs, the man got the essence of a great instrument right the first time. And over a half century later, the Fender Deluxe Active Precision Bass Special stands as a sterling example.

    Fender Deluxe Active P Bass Special Features:
    • Precision Bass with P/J pickups and active EQ
    • Vintage Split single-coil P-style pickup in the neck
    • Dual-coil ceramic Noiseless J-style bridge pickup with nickel-plated pole pieces
