If you’ve been considering the purchase of a brand-new bass guitar that clearly has the look and sound of a vintage instrument, check out the Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass in Brown Sunburst. This bass is the direct descendent of the original dual-pickup Jazz Bass, but with modern features that can allow each and every player to custom-tweak their own signature bass sound. That’s because the Deluxe Active Jazz Bass has all the electronics onboard that will allow you to dial in your personal tone courtesy of a pair of Dual Coil Ceramic Noiseless Jazz Bass pickups with nickel-plated pole pieces. The active controls let you set the master volume, pan pot, and 3-band EQ with a 10dB treble cut or boost at 8kHz, a shift in the cut frequency, and about 2dB slope per-octave. The midrange cut or boost allows you to cut by 15dB and boost by 10dB at 500Hz, with a wide-band slope. Finally, you can cut or boost by up to 12dB at 40Hz, with a 4dB slope per-octave.
Brown Sunburst is very close to Fender’s 3-color sunburst, and it has the unmistakable look of one of music’s most iconic basses. The solid alder body is durable, but also light, so extended sets wont wear you out. The 20-fret maple neck has a modern “C” shape and a satin polyurethane finish plus a rosewood fingerboard. The bridge is a Standard Vintage Style Deluxe Jazz and the pickup switching is courtesy of a pan pot, which will let you dial in just the right amount of each pickup. The scale length is the 34-inch standard Fender. The Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass is the perfect combination of vintage looks and modern tone-shaping capabilities and it ships direct to your door in a well-padded deluxe Fender gig bag absolutely free via FedEx.
