Comments about Fender American Deluxe J Bass V Ash 5-String:

I purchased this bass about 3 years ago, and could not be happier. Like any jazz bass, the sound is rich, full, and punchy. It plays really well, and the active electronics (although you will need to keep an eye on the double 9V's) makes an undeniable difference. My only gripe with this instrument is the fact that the low B string has to be tapered to fit into the bridge saddle. I suppose it keeps the string tight, however it limits you to the use of certain string types.
