McKagan Sound and Style
Designed for the man who has held down the low end for Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver, Jane’s Addiction and many others, the Duff McKagan Precision Bass is rock ‘n’ roll. Based on the Pearl White instrument McKagan has played since the first GNR album, the Duff McKagan Signature model is a distinctive, sleek and full-sounding reissue of the ’80s-era Jazz Bass® Special, which combined a Precision Bass body with a Jazz Bass neck and pickups from both instruments.
Features
  • Pearl White body (no pickguard) with gloss black neck and headstock
  • Vintage-style split single-coil Precision Bass middle pickup and Seymour Duncan® STKJ2B Jazz Bass bridge pickup
  • Three-way toggle pickup switch and volume control knob for each pickup
  • TBX™ tone circuit (Treble Bass Expander)
  • Vintage-style bridge with four single-groove saddles
  • Custom-engraved skull-and-crossbones neck plate
  • Highlights

    Modern Jazz Bass Neck with “C” Profile
    Modern Jazz Bass Neck with “C” Profile

    Duff McKagan’s signature Precision Bass model features the unusual distinction of having a slim modern Jazz Bass neck with a comfortable “C” profile (the shape of the neck in cross section). You get the best of both instruments—pulverizing Precision sound and style with the fast fretting-hand feel of a Jazz Bass.

    TBX™ Tone Circuit
    TBX™ Tone Circuit

    The Duff McKagan Precision Bass has a control knob that activates its TBX (Treble Bass Expander) tone circuitry. The center-detent knob works like a normal tone control from zero to the detent. Turning the knob clockwise from the detent increases presence and brightness, while turning it counterclockwise from the detent rolls off high frequencies.

    “P/J” Pickup Configuration
    “P/J” Pickup Configuration

    The Duff McKagan Precision Bass features the tonally versatile combination of a pummeling split single-coil Precision Bass® middle pickup and a bright, growling Jazz Bass® single-coil bridge pickup, widely known in bass guitar circles as a “P/J” pickup configuration.
