I've been given the opportunity to buy a used Fender P Am Dlx 5 str from -99. As I understand this model is discontinued and a very special beast, which is attractive to me in one way. It's hard though to get some good facts about this instrument these days. I have never played or seen one so I was hoping someone here on the forum could share their experience of the instrument. How does it compare to other fenders or fender style 5 str basses? How much does the bridge humbucker take it away from the standard jazz bass sound, and does the five string P-bass pu' sound normal all the way down the b-string? From what I understand this bass can't switch the humbucker to single coil and also there's no bypassing the preamp in case of battery failure. I'm a working professional and play a wide variety of styles so I need a bass with a broad sound spectrum but still my favorite basses have always been passive fenders.
