    I found this beauty the other day and I cant get it out of my mind, I look at basses and think yeah theyre nice, but rarely I look at a bass and say :eek: I NEED IT!

    137286.

    http://www.thomann.de/gb/fender_deluxe_pbass_special_mn_bp.htm

    It has everything I want in a bass at the moment:
    -Precision
    -Maple Neck
    -Awesome Colour
    -Active
    -Jazz and P bass pickups

    Anyone have one/had one? Is it worth starving myself for 6 weeks in order to get money?
     
  2. That IS an awesome color combination! Maple neck, P body, P&J Pickups. Sounds perfect to me! :bassist: That's nice that they have a 30 day money back guarantee as well. I'd do it.:D

    I personally don't like that colour combo at all, but if YOU love it, that's the only thing that matters.

    BTW, these MIM Deluxe Special P's are EXCELLENT basses.

    Also, Lucky Pants :)D nice name), Thomann are (IME) a great company to deal with (how good it feels to be able to say that for a change :smug:).

    I order a lot of stuff from them and they always deliver quickly, with no mistakes and no fuss. Their main competitor here in Germany are a company whose name I probably shouldn't mention (although it sounds a lot like "Music Productive" :p) have managed to screw up just about every order that I've ever placed with them.

    So, I hope that Thomanns' UK operation are equally effective, if you plan to order it from them :).

    Cool bass too, BTW ;).

    Thanks for the advice man! My friend orders a lot from Thomann and hes bever ever had a problem! Only problem for me is that they don't do cash on delivery! I normally use another German company, MusicStore, they also are a very reliable company!


    I am going to clear out my crap tomorrow to see if I can raise some funds, It won't be today,tomorrow or next week, but this bass WILL be mine!

    I LOVE silver with white pearl. Normally I would think gold blah. But I really like the look of this bass. Get it Get it!

    Well here's something for you, forum.

    Over 4 years since I wrote that OP, I've just ordered the bass in it.

    Will get some pictures up when she arrives. I cant put into words my excitement. 4 years.
     
  11. Yep, I have a blizzard white version with rosewood board and emerald sparkle pickguard. They are amazing. Don't expect the iconic P or J tones, but the active electronics array on this model make it quite versatile and powerful.

    Better late than never. Enjoy.

    I really admire your ability to suppress your GAS.

    If I wanted a bass THAT badly I know I couldn't wait 4 years...

    haha, it was hard work but I dont have a lot of money to spend so I just had to put up with it.

    Also, it's crazy to think it was 4 years ago, didnt realise it was that long.

    So excited to play it now
