Based on the ‘80s Jazz Bass Special, the Duff McKagan Deluxe Precision Bass is an evolution of his signature model. He used the ‘80s Jazz Bass Special while recording “Appetite for Destruction”. This bass adds player-friendly features and stylistic touches that Duff demands.
The black-painted “Modern C”-shaped quartersawn maple neck has a “Deluxe Jazz Bass Special” headstock logo and hosts a rosewood fingerboard with pearloid block inlays, along with the number “12” at the twelfth fret. A must-have for live performance, the Hipshot Bass Xtender allows instant drop-tuning with the flick of a lever. Duff’s signature sound comes from pairing a Fender vintage-style Precision Bass split-coil pickup with a Seymour Duncan STKJ2B Jazz Bass single-coil bridge pickup. This thunderous tone can be shaped precisely by the Fender TBX (Treble/Bass Expander) tone circuit.
Additional features include a Pure Vintage ‘70s bridge and, as a special touch, a Duff skull n’ crossbones neck plate. Includes deluxe gig bag.
