Squier Deluxe Jazz Bass V Active - 3-Color Sunburst
I have had my Squier Deluxe Jazz Bass V Active - 3-Color Sunburst for about 3 years now and it is a legitimate alternative to a LOT of higher priced basses.
- I love the wide 2" nut width! No other in it's price can come close.
- Very good and quiet 3 band EQ
- Slap switch comes in handy. A gain pot on the underside would be a welcome addition to match the volume of IN or OUT. Also a 250 / 500Hz for the midrange would be awesome!
- Looks great and plays great.
- Feels like a much higher priced bass
- Ebonol fretboard is as good as ___________ whatever wood you want to fill in the blank with.
I see why they bumped the price $50. They could bump it $200 and it would still be competitive.
I also own a black version too. Purchased both used on-line and both do not disappoint.
Did I mention I LOVE the wide neck?!!
Looking to MOD one of them with pickups and electronics, just don't know which one to attack...:-D
