I would need the complete serial #s, this serial # would be a 1968. Fender did not manufacture a Deluxe (or active) Bass guitar line at that time.

Check front of headstock, rear of headstock. Neckplate on the back of guitar. If not, remove neck and check the heel and neck "pocket."

Mexico or "MIM" built Fenders are from Ensenada, Mexico plant.
Deluxe versions usually have active electronics (battery driven) and a few other "luxury" components.

fret wires are something that needs to be professionally done. i suggest taking it into a shop and have them do a fret job on it.

Try reversing the wires in your input jack. Please repost results. Thanks!

This sounds like either a bad guitar cable or a bad jack in the guitar. Possibly your friend is not as qualified to find these intermittent problems as needed? These jacks are really junky and often have riveting of the barrel come undone... especially if the retaining nut is overtightened. The LONG barrel like jacks are notorious for failing. You have all the information you need to solve this problem. First try a different guitar cable... (often they are broken or intermittent at the end where they flex). If that doesn't fix it, replace the jack in the guitar. Also verify that the conductive coating paint within the guitar is grounded. Sometimes the contact to it is destroyed when the volume control shafts or jacks become loose and they depend upon the shaft barrel to ground the paint.

I'm an engineer, not a musician. The device is a frequency meter set up to display the musical note input to it. If you pluck a C flat and it shows an A you need to tune your instrument till it shows a C flat. You will have to refer to the manual for operation and modes.

yes check the fuse . there is generally a fuse for power switch and that sounds like what your having trouble with. hope that helps you out.

Does it still have a hum/buzz when NOTHING is plugged into the INPUT? If so, you MAY have a tub going bad. If the noise is only there when you have your guitar/effects, etc. plugged in, then the problem is the guitar grounding or effects faulty...
FIRST: When the amp is "cool", UNPLUG THE AMP POWER CORD FROM THE WALL! ! ! ! Then CAREFULLY remove and reseat the tubes one at a time. Be sure to insert back into the socket correctly. You MAY just have a bit of corrosion on the tube "pins"....

SECOND:Don't plug anything into the amp, turn on and warm up. GENTLY tap one tube at a time with a WOODEN pencil. DO NOT USE anything metallic (like a screwdriver....) and be VERY gentle. If the noise increases or decreases, you probably have a tube going bad...

That's all I have. If this doesn't cure the issue, best take it to a repair shop . . . .

Fender Music | Answered on Sep 27, 2019

While it is possible (probable) it is caused by the AC mains modulating the output due to a power supply fault, it could be caused by inadvertently creating a hum loop due to poor grounding - check out the link below...
