The Fender Deluxe Active J Bass is packed with a pair of dual-coil ceramic Noiseless J-style pickups, delivering classic Jazz Bass punch and growl, but without the hum and buzz. A 3-band active EQ yields lots of modern sound-shaping options, but an active/passive switch ensures that vintage tones are comfortably within your reach. A pan pot allows for precision blending of the pickups. Finished with comfortable satin polyurethane, the Deluxe Active J Bass's cozy C-shaped neck is a joy to play, and its HiMass bridge exhibits excellent resonance and sustain. The Fender Deluxe Active J Bass is a workhorse bass for today's 4-string players.

Familiar tones with a twist
Onboard the Deluxe Active J Bass is a duo of Fender's Vintage Noiseless Jazz Bass single-coil pickups with nickel-plated pole pieces. These pickups deliver the Jazz Bass's familiar punch and warmth, but the Noiseless circuitry eliminates unwanted signal noise and hum, making the bass ideal for live performance and recording. The 3-band active preamp adds a wide range of tonal control with a switch to go passive if you so choose. And the alder and maple construction with a rosewood fingerboard is a tried-and-true combination that has proven itself over decades.
The perfect neck finish
Players are very particular about many aspects of their instruments, but none more so than the neck. Fender has incorporated a great-feeling satin finish on the Deluxe Active J Bass's neck. The back of this neck has a slick-playing satin finish that feels worn in and ready to go. The headstock has a tinted gloss finish, and the rosewood fretboard has been buffed to perfection. Once you play the Deluxe Active J Bass, you won't be able to go back to anything else.
