ICONIAN!

WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO US?!

As you know I purchased the Precision Elite when this unheard-of deal was last posted! I can't get enough of that bass.... from its neck profile to the way the 18v preamp dials-in a ton of different tones + the mix of the jazz bridge pickup and precision neck p/u... it's incredible!

I wanted to just jump in and share my thanks, and if anyone's on the fence, the Elite Precision can't be found at this price anywhere else... and it's a powerhouse, truly versatile. The TSA cases these come with are also overkill, they sell for $220 on their own (I know because before I found one here, I bought a used Elite at GC, which I returned)... it was listed *used* at $1399 without a case... and it arrived beat up (from Guitar Center), before being returned.

Thank goodness for Slickdeals... and Iconian's watchful eye on these deals.

PS I'm in for 1 on the 5-String Elite... you twisted my arm! Thanks as always!!

Does the P+J pickup configuration take away from the traditional p-bass tone (split pickup only)?

So, if you have big hands like 11,12's the extra 2 mm would benefits right?

The string spacing is perfect for me and I have large banana hands. It's true that others prefer smaller spacing, but as a funk player, I thoroughly enjoy being about to get in between the strings when I need to.

Remember that there's two basses listed, the 4 Precision and the 5-string Jazz, so it will vary. The neck on the 4 precision is extremely comfortable. I only play a 5 with my band, but the Elite V I played in the store really felt comfy to me... l can't wait till mine gets here.

Some folks like that tight spacing, especially if they grew up with the aforementioned Ibanez or Warwick spacing... for me, I grew up on a P-bass copy and then MusicMan Stingrays and Fenders, so the wider (normal) spacing is just right for me.

Ps I signed up for the VIP360 membership at Adorama (especially considering how many deals I've picked up through them) -- it's like their own "Amazon Prime" only better, and cheaper. $49.99 for the entire year, I get my basses/guitars or whatever else (cases, effects, lenses and other gear) in just 2 days to California - they come 2day air... there's also other benefits like 60-day returns, etc... great deal, especially if Iconian keeps this up...

Are you looking at the 4 or 5? Both are no-brainers at this price, but get what you love and love what you play Smilie

How does it compare to Shoprunner?

SR is free, and gives you free 2 day shipping from Adorama (and 100 other stores)

Here is 2 year of SR for free:
