    Comments about Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass:

    This guitar is one of the best all around basses i've ever played. The look, feel and sound is second to none! Yes, it's a little big and a little heavy but anyone who knows about bass knows that's where the tone is. I have three other guitars that just hang on the wall alot now. I love it so much i'm trading one of those in for another one.

    Comments about Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass:

    "I bought one of these and it has such a nice warm feeling with a pair of rotosound flatwounds. real soft sound and good tone. i like active eq on it instead of straight volume controls. The only down sides are the short scale neck (20 frets only) and the heavy alder body. i find it frustrating when i go to set it downand it doesnt sit up evenly because of the awkward body shape, but if u can get over that and the decreased amount of frets its quite an amazing bass. the vintage noiseless pickups have a good feel too. basically it would be a perfect bass if the neck was a 34"" scale and the body was maybe a walnut top for better resonance. its a great buy."
