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.
MODERN JAZZ BASS NECK WITH "C" PROFILE
Duff McKagans 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
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
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.
