    Comments about Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass V 5-String Bass Guitar:

    This bass feels good to play. The action is great but I am not crazy about the pickups and preamp. The bass is really quiet for playing live. I have to crank up my amp and i still do not have enough volume. I love this bass but I am thinking about changing the pickups and preamp.

      Comments about Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass V 5-String Bass Guitar:

      Whether you're running charts with multiple key changes for an improv jazz set, or blasting I-IV-V with a drop-tuned rock outfit, this versatile 5-string can do it all. Between the tone knobs and on-board EQ your tonal settings are virtually limitless. The incredibly comfortable neck and noiseless pick-ups make this bass ideal for any environment whether it be on stage or in the studio. Comes with hardshell case.

        Comments about Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass V 5-String Bass Guitar:

        The Fender jazz bass has been a go to for professional bass players for decades. It has always provided quality tone and a great neck that is easy to play. The upgraded electronics in the deluxe jazz bass offer a wide range in tonal options. Electric basses have a wide spectrum of tones, from extremely low to very high frequencies. The onboard equalization allows you to fine tune your tone for any genre of music. This versatile bass is great in any situation. From novice to pro, this bass will provide you with the classic Fender tone that has been enhanced for modern musical tastes. The included hardshell case offers great protection for this quality instrument. This is hands down one of the best American made basses you can buy at this price.

          Comments about Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass V 5-String Bass Guitar:

          The 5 string Deluxe will blow you away. The ash body provides you with great resonance and a great tone and your pick of neck types. Single coil Active noise less pick ups in both positions. Also includes a hard shell case. This is a real hands-on review from David @ Sam Ash Ontario.

            Comments about Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass V 5-String Bass Guitar:

            First off, the frets feel real smooth all the way up the neck. The N3 noiseless single coil pickups are truly quiet. From jazz, salsa, to the the hardest rock, this bass is perfect. That low B string does come in handy when you need it. The active electronics are great to have when you want to stand in front of the band and play your bass solo. The craftsmanship of everyone I have played is flawless.

              Comments about Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass V 5-String Bass Guitar:

              I have had many jazz basses but none compare with the sound this version produces. The noiseless pickups sound great for any style and the play ability and construction are of the highest quality. Came with a great case durable enough for traveling on a plane. A truly great 5 string that never goes out of tune.

                This is the fully loaded Escalade of basses. American made in Corona, California, 5 strings, active electronics with EQ right on board. If you're a professional bass player, you should have an active J bass and a passiv P bass in your arsenal, in addition to whatever else you play on.

                  Comments about Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass V 5-String Bass Guitar:

                  Fender pioneered the modern electric bass and this iteration of the J-Bass further burnishes the company's reputation. True Fender quality combines with advances in technology resulting in a wonderful instrument that offers lots of headroom while delivering great low-end response. The bass comes with a hardshell case and strap locks, among other accessories. This is a real hands-on product review from Gene @ Sam Ash White Plains.

                    Comments about Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass V 5-String Bass Guitar:

                    A true classic, the Fender Deluxe 5 Jazz Bass is easy and fun to play. Maple neck with the choice of either Rosewood or Maple fingerboards for either a warmer tone or crisper brighter edge. The Ash and Alder body provides great sustain while keeping true to Fenders famous tone. The N (Noiseless 3) pickups keep true to the Fender sound while eliminating all the hisses and hums that come along with single coil pickups. A beautiful looking and sounding bass. A real must have for any self respecting bass player. This is a real hands on product review by Sean@ Sam Ash Ontario.
