  3. Good bass. I've played a couple before. Actually very comfortable and built well. They were priced at about $1200.

    hey, its a "Fender AmeRRican"!

    :rolleyes:
     
  5. They're GREAT basses. However, I would never buy one new, as they can be picked up used for around $600.

    By the way, are the pups on it active, or is it just the EQ?

    Current list on a P-Deluxe is $1750, but the ash body is $150 extra: Total $1900, as he claimed.

    Pickups on the Deluxe are passive.

    Well, it depends on which year it is. The 2002 Fender Dlx w/an ash body Lists for $1899.99. If it's a 2001 it's $1799.99.

    The newer 2002's have a new features.
    Features:

    *New bridge (same as FMT only chromeplated)
    *Nickel plated brass bridge section
    *Chromeplated steel base-plate

    *P-Bass® and double J-Bass® noiseless pickups
    *Master Volume and Pan controls

    If it's a 2002, it's a great price since they sells new for about $1250-$1350. If it's a 2001, it's still a good price. Musicians friend has a Special Web Price of $999.99 for the older 2001's. <a href="http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7/sid=020402085701209246081223920417/search/detail/base_id/34560">CLICK HERE</a> to see the ad.

    I just looked over the fender pricelist & the 2002 model dosen't seen to be offered in a natural finish, so it most likley is an older one.
