Duff McKagan is one of the most significant rock bassists of the last 30+ years. Renowned for his work with Guns N' Roses, Fender has collaborated with the Seattle-born rocker to launch a signature Deluxe Precision Bass.

Heavily based (no pun intended) on the '80s Jazz Bass Special McKagan used to record Guns N' Roses' breakthrough album, Appetite for Destruction, his elegant-looking signature bass guitar is hot-rodded with a number of modern features to meet his demands and those of contemporary-minded bass players.

Classic Fender Construction

Fender has relied on its customary tonewood combinations for the Duff McKagan signature Deluxe Precision Bass. Sporting an Alder body, this balanced-sounding material ensures robust lows, lively mids and crisp highs - a great tonal foundation for the powerful pickup pairing.

The instrument's Alder body is joined with a black-painted "Modern C"-shaped Maple neck, bringing out more presence for a crisp tone when playing finger-style, slap or with a plectrum. The sleek Rosewood fingerboard adds some crucial lower mid-range warmth and provides a silky-smooth touch under the fingers, while the classy white pearloid block inlays will always guide your playing.

Punchy P/J Pickup Configuration

Duff’s signature sound comes from pairing a Fender vintage-style Precision Bass split-coil pickup with a punchy Seymour Duncan STKJ2B Jazz Bass single-coil bridge pickup. Giving you the rounded thump of a traditional P-Bass mixed with the clarity of a Jazz Bass, the Fender Duff McKagan signature model covers a lot of ground. Its thunderous tone can also be shaped precisely via the Fender TBX (Treble/Bass Expander) tone circuit.

Hipshot Bass Xtender

One of the Fender Duff McKagan Deluxe Precision Bass' coolest features is its Hipshot Bass Xtender. A must-have for live performance, this device allows you to instantly detune the lowest string by a whole step at just the flick of a lever. Drop D tuning has never been easier!
