Elegant and packed with versatile tones, the Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass V is ideal for 5-string bassists who need a flexible tone machine that looks great on stage. Fender's classic offset bass style is blended with powerful tone and smooth playing feel to create an instrument that punches well above its weight without breaking a working bassist's wallet. On stage or in the studio, the rich, timeless Jazz Bass tone will easily find a home in any style of music.

Powered by a pair of growling Vintage Noiseless Jazz Bass bridge pickups, this instrument's bright, full sound easily cuts through a mix, ensuring the bass is heard clearly while retaining punch and low end authority. Active/passive switching makes it easy to access both vintage-styled and modern voices, further extending this instrument's sonic flexibility. The robust control scheme includes a three-band active EQ with treble, mid and bass controls -- each with boost and cut to accurately shape your tone -- along with a pan pot for precision blending of the pickups' potent sound. The five-saddle Fender HiMass bridge with chrome-plated zing saddles improves every note's sustain and resonance, while enhancing the attack for lively tone that lets your sonic personality shine through. The "C"-shaped maple neck is comfortable for all playing styles and hosts a 1.5" synthetic bone nut and fast-playing 12"-radius fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets for a familiar playing feel.

The alder body bears a durable gloss polyester read more finish that looks great under the spotlight while being tough enough to shrug off the abuse of gigging and traveling. Classic Jazz Bass appointments include vintage-style black plastic Jazz Bass control knobs, nickel/chrome hardware, black pickup covers, pearloid dot inlays and a 3-ply B/W/B pickguard. Combining authentic design, modern performance and classic Fender tone, the Deluxe Active Jazz Bass V rises to any playing occasion with style and sonic grace. Includes deluxe gig bag.
