What we say:Fender's Deluxe Active Jazz bass is one of the brand's most versatile basses. Jazz basses are naturally more versatile anyway due to the slimmer neck and choice of pickups: this model goes a little further than that!
Active basses are familiar things to bassists these days so it's goo d to have one in the iconic form of the all-encompassing Fender Jazz. The pickups on here vintage Noiseless models, capable of a great signal to noise ratio: no matter how much drive or fuzz you choose to employ, your ambient noise will still be super-low to non-existent. This makes things sound so much more professional.
The bridge is a nice, heavy Himass model: more metal equals more sustain. you don't always need lots of sustain but if you don't have it to begin with, you're going to have a tough time adding it in later. The EQ controls are all active so they are a powerful set of boosts and cuts for treble, middle and bass. This allows for some very powerful tonal decisions to be made right on the fly as you play. In a live situation this can be invaluable. All in all, this is quite a package: great looks, great feel, great vintage tone with modern EQ: what are you waiting for?
Powered by a pair of growling Vintage Noiseless™ Jazz Bass bridge pickups, this instrument's bright, full sound easily cuts through a mix, ensuring the bass is heard clearly while retaining punch and low end authority. Active/passive switching makes it easy to access both vintage-styled and modern voices, further extending this instrument's sonic flexibility. The robust control scheme includes a three-band active EQ with treble, mid and bass controls—each with boost and cut to accurately shape your tone—along with a pan pot for precision blending of the pickups' potent sound. The four-saddle Fender HiMass™ bridge improves every note's sustain and resonance, while enhancing the attack for lively tone that lets your sonic personality shine through. The "C"-shaped maple neck is comfortable for all playing styles and hosts a 1.5" synthetic bone nut and fast-playing 12"-radius fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets for a familiar playing feel.
The alder body bears a durable gloss polyester finish that looks great under the spotlight while being tough enough to shrug off the abuse of gigging and traveling. Classic Jazz Bass appointments include vintage-style black plastic Jazz Bass control knobs, nickel/chrome hardware, black pickup covers, pearloid dot inlays and a 3-ply B/W/B pickguard. Combining authentic design, modern performance and classic Fender tone, the Deluxe Active Jazz Bass rises to any playing occasion with style and sonic grace. Includes deluxe gig bag.
