MGR/John's review"Fender Active Jazz Bass Deluxe"

Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass [2004-current]
I got the bass through musicians friend as my second bass. For about 550 dollars.

It sounds great, it feels tight and precise. Makes for very easy slapping but doubles for nice deep tones. I really enjoy it.

Its awfully heavy but thats not too big of a deal. It also had a few problems with the screws. I had to make some modifications in my shop but its great now.

Like i said it had some problems with the screws and the bridge but easily fixable. And that is just the one i got i'm sure it varies from bass to bass. The neck feels great and the playing part of the bass is excellent.

The bass is awesome besides the bridge and screws. No doubt it was a good buy and i would buy it again. Its great bass that i will always use.

dams09's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A jazz bass that has big ..."

Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass [2004-current]
everything has been said ... A Mexican but with a violin that seems good level.


So as they say: "This is a jazz bass." So the neck is very thin and nice and access to acute is perfect. It does not sting the nose. Personally I find not particularly light, but it is no longer a dead donkey. In summary, ergonomics that I love, which is not at all exotic for a jazz bass.


I play rock, jazz, reggae, funk and pop. In any case we easily manage to find a good sound. The preamp not color the sound evil. It performs its job and corrections are effective. One can easily go from a very medium punk sound good for roots reggae. I always play with two microphones simultaneously. I think they complement each other very well, between the roundness of the neck pickup and dynamic pickup. The set provides a powerful and dynamic sound. In all cases, the sound is typical jazz bass but with more cumbersome. I think she should be able to cope well in a metal folder.
One caveat though: the noiseless pickups lack a bit of precision.


I played for 7 years extensively (my main bass). I recently grafted him a pair of vintage microphones benedetti. It gives him a new lease of life and it can be given more precision in sound, enhanced susceptibility to attack.
I tried a lot of bass before buying (other fender, cort telecaster, Warwick, Ibanez ...). I was looking for a versatile bass and I was and am still filled. A very endearing low, super comfortable. With new pickups I find it perfect. This is a bass that I will keep a long time. A highly recommended for those seeking a typed his jazz bass with a bit more cumbersome.

Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass [2004-current]
-It is a fender jazz bass mexico active (visit the site if you SOULLEZ fender precision more)
-Alder body with rosewood fingerboard in Saddle
-20 Box (we could have set 22 as the US but hey we will not cry)
Fender-standard rack (is shit)
Mechanical-standard jazz bass that takes the agreement
One has a volume, a pan pot (pickup selector) for the neck pickup or am easel or two, we have a mid boost of 18db, one to adjust the bass and treble that for a boost of 12db
One has a handle profile C
I put a 8 because of the bridge because it's really a piece of tolle


There was an end mache trs, trs soft to the touch for small hands is perfect, as the major
-L 'treble for CSTA does not pose a problem for me, the 20th box is affordable whether on the E string or soil
Ah la la-weight, it is quite heavy around 6 kg, when I'm sitting it tends to slide forward, except when we play there is no problem standing the balance is perfect. The shape is like any other standard jazz bass, but good to love the tastes and colors ...
-The sound is the best point, whether the finger at mdiator and slap, it sounds wonderful, in a neck pickup gives a trs clear with good bass and midrange, for the bridge we get a pretty funky finger and a mediator's punk metal


It suits me, that's exactly the sound I Charches, I play mainly red hot and I found exactly the same sound
I played on a 65 PL laney bass is way I bought it in 40 OCCAZ, but good for the price I'm not plaind
-C 'ets low trs versatile, it can play from jazz to metal with no problem


I have used it for 6 months
-I like its shape, I always have to have an RV, I really like the sound that typ trs is less I say the bridge for 819 euros, because they could metrre a badass and varnish trs is fragile, I have all of Petes.
Trs-quality good value price, you pay the brand
I gladly would do this choice, I suggest to all those that want an active in around 800

Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass [2004-current]
- Made in Mexico (mine in 2005) (see serial number MZ5xxxxx)
- Corp alder, neck Saddle
- 20 medium jumbo frets rosewood
- 2 Dual-Coil Ceramic Noiseless Jazz Bass Pickups with Nickel Plated Pole Pieces
- Easel Standard Vintage Style
- Brown Sunburst color (available in Black, Candy apple red, Arctic white)
- Controls: Master Volume, Pan Pot, 3-Band Active EQ with:
Treble Boost / Cut: + / - 10 db @ 8kHz, a shift in the cut frequency, and about a 2dB slope per octave. Mid Boost / Cut: +10 dB,-15dB @ 500Hz, and a wide band slope.
Bass Boost / Cut: + / - 12 db @ 40 Hz, with a 4dB slope per octave.

I noticed that the version available US rglage of the handle from the base of the handle, while the Mexican version, it is at the top, like on my home US).
Unless the version of an old silent US gnration ...
Amricaine version comes with a rigid fender tui (with and felt clbtr of nttoyage, sticker).
Mexican, it must be offered a saccoche. AND the tools like BTR, and much is at Leeroy merlin you find them


The neck is super enjoyable. trs cramped, not pais but
its handle is pais (1 mm) than my C4 CORT, but since it is narrower. It compensates.
I tell you the sweet p microphones. The spectrum of use is huge with the active elect. Excellent sustain. Real clear treble. Severe hot property, and round. Finally, there is something to do with rglages

The sound is the same United States version (I compared in stores) under the same conditions.
The violin is excelente invoice.

With it, the slap is more affordable. It sounds good, and not "force". She knows how to groove and make walking follies.


As I said above, it really covers everything that exists in bass sounds. almost all styles.

A great value qualitson / violin / prstige brand) price.

I can not describe the sound of fat, but it is trs clean, Dfine, whatever the rglages. Bewitching


I've had two days. I almost cracked a US OCCAZ passive with S1. it silent in 2003, and 210 euros more expensive.
Ba I do not regret my purchase. It replaced my Cort C4. even if the apprciais j,
I l trs a beautiful instrument that sounds like "big" sister US, which has exactly the same face. With the difference, I can consider to buy a Ampeg Amp) ... faster (well, still missing a lot).

The more I think and I wonder why I would have a US prices. Besides contributing to the salary of the worker who drives a US Ford F150, when the Mexican bike runs ...
I think the diffrence is mainly here and in our heads.

A if I forgot, as I bought a Fender Start US (the real) in 2003 (my son)
I noticed that the coupon quality control stamp on silent US stratum in box Tune / Test. While there has clearly been no control over my Mexican Jazz bass, since no buffer ...
As the bumper US strikes the box "Assembly", he, possde a real buffer, when the Mexican possde pen. (Sic) the limit is more craft in Mexico ;-)
