Fender x MoFi PrecisionDeck Limited Edition Turntable Will Burst Your Mind

Did MoFi just collaborate on a $3,500 turntable with Fender? Indeed they did and excuse me while I kiss the platter and empty my wallet.

Sunburst that is. Did MoFi collaborate with Fender on a limited edition version of its PrecisionDeck turntable? Did Hendrix play left-handed?

Before you read the price and feel slightly depressed, understand that the plinth is exactly what you think it is. The Fender Custom Shop got rather creative on this project and I’m already missing my Fender bass with this exact finish.

MoFi and Fender will only be offering 1,000 units of this custom table for $3,495 each.

MoFi have kept some aspects of the turntable stock like the 10.5″ gimbaled arm and the MasterTracker cartridge which comes pre-installed. The 1.5″ Delrin platter is incredibly inert and manufactured in the United States. HRS feet have been on the MoFi tables since launch and you’ll find a set of 4 on this table as well.

Each exacting plinth on every PrecisionDeck is sourced, milled, and finished by Fender before it is sent to Mobile Fidelity Electronics’ Michigan factory for incorporation into PrecisionDeck.MoFi Electronics

Of course, unlike Fender guitars, turntables cannot be allowed to resonate. To ensure no such problems would occur and disturb the otherwise beautiful design and sound, Mobile Fidelity Electronics turned to acoustics expert Mike Latvis at Harmonic Resolution Systems.

His ingenious solution: Attachment points and resonance cuts on the bottom of the low-resonance plinth, performed to spec at the mill before getting sent to Fender. Those are just a few of the cutting-edge attributions that allow the 25.5-pound PrecisionDeck, based off of Mobile Fidelity Electronics’ award-winning UltraDeck model, to stand apart.

True to its name, PrecisionDeck arrives meticulously built, with every part and function having gone through extensive testing to ensure optimal performance. Equipped with the equivalent of a guitar pickup – in the form of Mobile Fidelity’s acclaimed MasterTracker cartridge – for easy setup and operation, PrecisionDeck is ready to go out of the box. Physically, it stands out via its super-sturdy, 1.3-inch, 6.8-pound Delrin platter that delivers deep-black backgrounds and a fantastically low noise floor. Delrin is chosen due to its natural impedance match with vinyl. MoFi Electronics

Speaking of being made for LPs: A 300RPM isolated AC synchronous motor offers excellent speed stability for stellar pitch accuracy and rhythmic drive. In addition, the constrained layer dampening build – consisting of three aluminum plates bonded to the MDF body – adds extra mass, eliminates coloration, and contributes to increased stability. It’s just another way PrecisionDeck takes its purpose to the extreme. Ditto its use of ester-based bearing grease, which lends to the ‘table’s extreme quiet.MoFi Electronics
