Due to a need to downsize my collection and following a few gigs with a friend's 2012 American Deluxe,P-Bass, I recently sold my US Standard P and J basses to acquire a black maple board '13 US Deluxe. Many reviewers of this bass have attested to its hybrid nature. They are quite correct. The American Deluxe makes a very good stab indeed at both American Standard P and J basses in passive mode and has the added bonus of switchable active circuitry to give a much wider palette of tones. It is at home with any musical genre you can think but obviously your amp settings are equally critical here.The Deluxe also retains a lot of the traditional and uncluttered look of Fender basses and is of very light weight despite high-quality electronics and hardware. It has a neck feel to die for. Overall build quality is top-class. The basses I sold to acquire this one are industry standards with a decades-long and rich musical heritage. The Deluxe does it better, however and is one of a very few successful hybrid instruments that I'm aware of. Because both Precision and Jazz Bass players will appreciate what is on offer here, the American Deluxe Precision Bass represents a carefully thought-out evolution and convergence of..... two great instruments! Very highly recommended!

After 30 years of playing bass I have played a lot of different basses. My only Fender was a 1980 Precision Special. I prefer to play active basses
because that gives me more control of my bass sound that is coming out of the PA. All the basses I played were really nice sounding
instruments but after I while I was not really satisfied. Something was missing. So when Fender brought out the new american deluxe
instruments my dealer told me that I should try it out. I needed 3 years before testing the new Precision Bass. It kicked my ass from the
first moment I held this beauty in my hands. There was the little thing that I was missing in the sound of my other basses. I have this bass in
sunburst and it looks beautiful. The preamp is really good and you can get lots of different sounds. The jazz bass pickup gives this
bass the punch and clarity that I love. I think that the P\J setup is the best combination you can put on a bass guitar. The really good thing is that this bass never looses his precision character. It just sounds a bit better. The active passive switch is a really good feature and if you switch it to passive mode, blend to the preci pu you have got the passive precision in a very high quality. I was so hypnotized by this bass that I also bought an american deluxe Jazz. So check it out. You can't get more bass for your money. The american deluxe series beats the rest on the marked.
Thank you Fender that you built those two basses for me ;-)

This bass is amazing, but when you get it (like most Fender instruments) you're going to need to tune it up. Like shave the nut down so the strings rest in the right spot and put paper under the neck bolt so it doesn't buzz in the high register, besides all that, this thing is the master. And I have been playing for years and own many Fender basses. It's the bombdiggity

I own the 98/99 American deluxe p-bass. This bass delivers the best range of tones you will ever need: you can play the vintage precision sound or otherwise use the classic jazz bass tone in a modern style with the active circuitry. Though my model has a modern hum-bucker instead of the jazz pickup, with this bass you have the option to switch between an active or passive bass, which is a mayor upgrade. Anyway, with the versatility, elegant style, 3 EQ band and everything else that is given with this bass, you will finally see yourself using the precision pickup more often than you imagine, because that sound is non replaceable... in the end what its a p-bass (that can give you the jazz and modern bass sound if you wish or need so).

This is a fine instrument. Full stop. Playability, weight, balance, fit, feel, finish, and build quality are all superb. The pickups are hot, even without the active circuitry. The ability to get "true bypass" of the active circuitry was one of the things that initially attracted me to this model and it works great! It's like having two separate basses available, all at the flip of a switch. I have a '74 fretless P-bass, a '78 Gibson RD Artist, and a 2012 Jaguar. Tonally, this American Deluxe is like having them all combined into one extremely playable (and great-looking) package. Like the title of the review says, I'm pretty sure this is the last bass that I will ever need.

Is this a PBass or a JBass? Well, it's actually BOTH, and everything in between! If you're looking for that classic Precision Bass growl, you have the split single-coil P pickup. If you want that iconic Jazz Bass sound, there's the N3 Noiseless J pickup. If you want the best of both worlds, leave the pot in the mid position, or, just a tweak either way will get you a custom blend of the two best sounding bass guitars known to man! This bass played great right off the wall with the factory setup. Very impressive. The active/passive mini-toggle switch is a handy addition in case the two 9 volt batteries start losing their juice. Fit and finish is excellent, typical of the American Deluxe series. I bought the black version with the maple neck almost a year ago, and I'm very pleased with it. I never thought I could love another bass as much as my 5 year old American Deluxe Jazz Bass V, but this PBass is coming very close. My one and only complaint, (and this goes for the JBass as well) is that when I went to replace strings on both basses, I found that a screw had fallen out of one of the tuners. Fender and Hipshot quickly sent me new ones, and a drop of Locktite will ensure that they stay put. If you can't decide between the P and J basses, this is the guitar for you!
