    Looks sweet and probably sounds even better.

    Now you just need to accessorize.

    That's nice.
    I nearly went for one of these before realizing I needed a short-scale.

    Is it sea foam pearl or surf green pearl?

    Hello all! Long time visitor and finally first time poster here at talkbass. Thought I'd share my sunburst deluxe pj special as well. Got this one from musicians friend back in the spring of 2015. Neck and action is super fast. Just love all the little details that came together on this bass (being passive was a huge one). After a year of rehearsals and gigging I'm extremely happy but am slightly on the fence about needing a pickup upgrade. The stock pups function fine, jazz is definitely a little weak as many have experienced and the pots could have a little more articulation, but not sure if a full swap out is really worth it to push this baby into the next level. Been looking at the geezer set as a possibility but Have yet to pull the trigger. Anyone have any thoughts? IMG_1704.JPG

    The Fender Special Edition Deluxe PJ Bass is on sale once again at GC. The normal price is $899, now $749 (which oddly enough was the normal price when I got mine I think). Somewhere along the line it went up to $899 apparently.

    Might be even cheaper than $749 if you're near the GC in Cherry Hill, NJ and you tell them you want the Sea Foam Pearl they have on the floor with the Fender flatwounds on it...since it's actually used.
    Unless a returned bass still qualifies as new, that is. Seriously, 30 days of play time doesn't make it used, right?

    Mine was $837 after discount and tax. It was a new floor model but has a couple of scratches in the body so we talked them down for that.

    I found a nice Spl. Edition Deluxe PJ Precision today. They cut me a break on the price.

    Did you ever get around to upgrading the pickups? I saw this yesterday:



    I've been thinking about upgrading mine with EMG Geezer pickups as well. I have the P version of the GZR in my Nate Mendel Precision, and it sounds awesome, so it seems like a slam dunk to upgrade the PJ set in my Deluxe P. But, I am also hesitant, because the Deluxe sounds amazing as it is.

    I'm going to leave it as is. I really like the sounds of it. the D'addario ETB92 Nylons help the sounds also.
