So the final piece of the collection arrived today, Fender Deluxe Precision, P/J configuration, active/passive. Had wanted a P/J in my fave black/black/maple but when I saw this one in pretty much my equal fave of white/black/rosewood it just had to be. Plays and sounds like a dream - am leaving it on passive as it just sounds so good like that.

I'd be tempted to leave it on passive myself. Lovely looking bass... and I love PJs.

Congrats Lozz - she's an absolute beaut. Can someone please tell Fender to make a 5 string version of this?

Nice one Lozz. Been thinking about getting one of these for a while now, but was wondering how heavy they are? Also have they always had the passive / active option, am guessing yours is fairly recent model? Cheers, Pete.

A very nice looking bass Lozz and a good choice going for that scratch plate colourway .

It’s very light Pete, I’d say about 8.5lbs. This one is a 2015, not sure but I think Fender decided on active/passive switch in 2012 when they had a re-jig on their ranges.

8.5 lbs is probably just within my limit! I had one of these a while ago, black with a maple neck job, and it was way heavier than that which was a shame as otherwise was a great bass. Didn't have the passive option though, so probably pre 2012. IIRC the very first ones they introduced were passive only, sunburst with a gold guard too I think.

Incidentally, I always thought these were MIM, yet your shot of the headstock says 'Made in USA' under the Fender logo?

What Lozz has here is an American Deluxe Precision, this was the top of the range series before becoming the American Elite during 2015 and now the American Ultra series..

Doh, my mistake. Should have known Lozz preferred USA Fenders! 😄

Is this 18v?

I think so, the Ultra is the current model , as per Lewis’s comments above, which replaced this one and thats18v.

Aw geez, it's a stunner. I didn't realise they made basses with this configuration of electronics and 70's logo. Plus it's the punk colour scheme.

I picked up a 2017 American Elite Precision (PJ) in a trade a couple of months back and it really is superb. If these Deluxe models are anywhere near as good they'll be cracking basses.
