This bass is a beast! It's basically a hot rodded jazz with American electronics and pickups. A 5 string jazz with lots of versatility. The sound youwant is in this bass. Lots of power! This bass sounds like a bass. When the back picup is favored or soloed it growls like an animal. Both pups on you get a well balanced mix of thump and growl. Neck pup soloed you get old school thud and boom. This bass is worth every penny. It's BIG and a tad Heavy but thats what gives it it's BIG and Heavy sound. Very well built, excellent craftsmanship. Smooth neck, and no sharp frets. I took the advice of some of the other reviewers and put on a set of strap locks. Changed the strings to DR SunBeams and did my own set-up on it. Plays awesome! I LOVE IT!

Thought this guitar would be the last one I'd ever need, but it let me down. It has terrible low end frequencies and plays like a battle axe...its also very heavy. The head stock also cracked on me and had to have it repaired. I do like the warm tones it produces.

    2ND TIME WAS A CHARM

    By Levi Montes

    from Donna, Texas

    Comments about Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass V:

    When I first ordered this bass it came in with some problems I didnt feel a new bass should have so I returned it and decided to wait for new one. Despite this experience I was very pleased with the quality and feel of the active jazz V, its slightly wider than the Ibanez im used to but i adapted. the action can be set comfortably low enough to play quickly and although it is a heavy bass it is worth the tone that results. I was not a fan of Fender and was planning for a while to get a Schecter or ESP but playing a USA jazz gave me a 180 in opinion on Fender and I quickly found the Deluxe Active Jazz V and got it. This is a great bass and is a good deal especially if you can get it on sale like I did.

    Comments about Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass V:

    Wow, this Bass is far more than I ever expected it to be! The active electronics are incredible and it is SOOO nice that they don't need a 9V battery to power them! This Bass sounds amazing!

    Dude, this thing is incredible

    By John

    from Atlanta

    Comments about Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass V:

    I would not have believed it in a dream. I got mine today and Fender got it right. Intonation and setup straight out of the box was great and there was even a battery in the compartment. Not to say it can't be tweaked, but I'd play a gig with it right now. Played it 5 hours tonight. I wouldn't have put it down except for that day job I have to attend on a fairly regular basis to pay the bills. If you are a working musician with not a lot of cash to throw at a guitar, get this one. I have an old hardshell case I got with another cheeeeep Peavey bass that is a Fender case I will use until I can get a nice tweed one. also will install strap locks. I don't wanna be dropping it. I lost my 1980 Rickenbacker 4001 to a stage accident a few years ago (the Peavey was a backup) and this guitar makes me forget about the Rick. The tone is better than I ever remember that Rick having. There are so many tones just waiting for you to enjoy in the guitar. unbelievable. I got mine for less than 750.. coupon for 15% off. What a steal. I should go to jail. :) Get it. It's a beast.

    Perfection, thy name is Fender Jazz

    By William Wright Harris

    from Knoxville, TN

    Comments about Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass V:

    I bought my 5 string J-bass five years ago and I could not have purchased a better instrument. It is an incredibly versatile bass that can literally play anything! Punk, metal, jazz, funk, name it and this bass can do it. Anyone claiming that this bass is not worth it more than likely just can't play. This bass is perfect for beginners and professionals alike. Also, when you pull this beautiful goddess out of her case everyone in the room knows that you are a serious player. I have played every bass imaginable and for your money you cannot find a better axe.

    Nice price, nice Bass and Excellent Service

    By PinoyRakista

    from Germantown, MD

    Comments about Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass V:

    First of all, i am the type of person who always reads reviews but never wrote any. However, this is an exception because I am very thankful to Fender for replacing the Neck of my Fender Deluxe. i did not get the chance to set-up the bass until 6 months of ownership and noticed that the truss rod cannot be adjusted. i explained to Fender the issue I was having and they replaced my neck with no hassle. One tip I would suggest to Mexico made Fender buyers is to take time and test several units. My bass guitar is by far a lot better quality than other mexico made units. Feels and sound like an american fender. In short, I have tested par quality mexico made Fenders, but once in a while I find gems that you should not be let go because they are so worth the $$$. My mexican Fender is a keeper. I own, a Warwick Jazzman and a musicman Sterling. This Fender Deluxe is less than half the price i paid with my other basses but it is very comparable.

    This Bass is a "Monster"!!!

    By Earl Grant

    from Richmond, VA

    Comments about Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass V:

    I bought this bass and can't believe how good it sounds. It's very responsive. Pick-ups are great. Wonderful tone and lots of low end. I only have to keep my controls on mid-way or less. A fantastic instrument. Never understood why people pay 3 or 4 thousand for a bass. That expensive hi-tech stuff is not necessary; besides you can't beat the tone of a fender. Mexican or American, the only diffrence is the price you pay. A great bass for any style of music.

    By Brett

    Comments about Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass V:

    Freaking awesome bass, it has a clean sound especially when u put DR strings on it. best 5 string ive had. Even though its not american made it has absolutly no buzz in any of the frets. the only time this bass really comes alive though is when you crank the mid boost knob all the way up, i never turn it down. Over all, awesome bass.

    Greatest Bass!!!!!!!!

    By Luis

    from Lynn

    Comments about Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass V:

    This Bass is one of the best out there. You can play anything with this bass from fingerstyle to slap to rock, anything really. You can get the sound you want from this bass. Also the batteries last a long time without running out. But for me this bass perfect because you get the nice slapping sound from this bass just by twisting a few knobs. For the price you just cant beat it!!!!!!
