Comments about Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass V Okume Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Bass Guitar:

Were you hoping for a $2000 class instrument at less than half that pricetag? Actually, this is not that far off. MIJ=just plain junk! MIA=unaffordable for working musicians! MIM=could be the one*

*Just needs two things to be your dream rig. 1] Find a tech that knows what he is doing, and have him set it up professionally to proper specs. My Deluxe Active Jazz Bass V arrived with an out of spec. concave in the neck and pickups not at optimum height. 2] Upgrade the pickups to something more akin to what that $2000 bass would have. For less than $200 you can have that dream '60s MIA sound, no fooling! I'm debating between a set of Bartollinis and EMG-VX. 3] I know I said 2, but do you realize how much difference you string choice can make? My very first move was to replace the stock strings that came with it to D'addario half-round pure nickel. An immediate improvement in tone and playability!
