      Fender Select Active Jazz Bass (H92171)

Active electronics and a super comfy neck make this bass irresistible.

Like its passive-electronics 2012 predecessor, the Fender Select Active Jazz Bass takes this most versatile bass to new heights of elegance and power. Its alder body has a flame maple top and a beautiful hand-stained Tobacco Sunburst finish with gloss-lacquer topcoat. The modern "C"-shaped quartersawn maple neck has a comfortable contoured heel, satin lacquer finish and PosiflexTM graphite support rods; the compound-radius rosewood fingerboard (9.5"-14") has 20 medium jumbo frets and stylish white pearloid block position inlays.

Other premium features include dual Fender Select Jazz Bass single-coil pickups, active/passive mini-toggle switch, master volume knob and pickup pan knob, three-band active EQ (treble, mid and bass boost/ cut knobs), 3-ply parchment pickguard, high-mass vintage-style bridge (string-through-body or top-load), vintage-style tuners with tapered shafts, and Fender Select headstock medallion. Includes case.

  • Excellent.

    As reviewed by Scott Brown on 4/18/2014

    I own an 89 MM Stingray 4 and an 4003 Rick. I have owned an American made P Bass. I was considering a Sadowsky and played a few. This bass is equal to their quality. The P/U's are hot. If you want that fat P Bass sound favor the neck P/U.. Nasally Jaco tone..?? Roll it back to the bridge. I though my MM was awesome... Not even close.It is now hanging on my wall collecting dust. I can make this bass growl... You can make this bass sound like Marcus Miller's with flat settings... My MM needed new to newish strings to make it sound descent. Even with old strings this Jazz will impress you. Balanced neck that doesn't even think of going out of tune... Did I mention how awesome the pickups are... wow. I record with this bass into a Sans amp with some light compression... Awesome sound... If you wonder how your favorite artists get that nasty round cutting bass tone.. Get a Jazz Bass... And if you want to spend the extra cash to get a special one, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.

  • Amazing

    As reviewed by john szivos on 12/15/2013

    This bass is simply beautiful and well crafted. I was on the market and willing pay more than this for a great bass. The look is one positive aspect, but it is the feel and sound that make this truly a great bass. Sales and selection at my Guitar Center store was excellent, although the bass could have used a set-up for my personal style of play, but that is easily fixed. Overall, an amazing instrument and well worth the money. Thanks to the salesperson who helped with my purchase.
