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:

For sure, ShopRunner is great; I do get it for free through Amex, but paying $49 for 2-day shipping AND the 60 day no hassle returns (vs 30 Day standard) and a direct line to CS is definitely worth it as long as Iconian keeps posting these dang things... I think I'm 5 deep so far lol, definitely worth it if you're going that route.

If not, the Shoprunner is fine for the delivery aspect, unless they hook up the longer return period as well (not sure, I hardly utilize any benefits other than the Uber and Travel credits on the Amex but know I should).

Thank you, sorry I had no idea I had to actually "Subscribe" to this thread in order to get email notifications after I respond... I thought it happens automatically (still a newbie here I guess)...

Being that this was the 2nd time it was posted, definitely add a deal alert, I'm sure it will pop back up sometime if you're in the market.

Much love man and hope you get something you love.
