Passive tone
Bass +/-

Blimey, that’s mad. It’d take me half an hour to get ready to play!

Oh yeah, I see the switch now. 8 fiddly things!

I’ve seen a beautiful used Fender MIM Deluxe Jazz Bass from 2012. It’s active. Anyone know if these are any good?

I really, really like Sire. I’ve got the V9 and it’s a monster - I love it. And, they all look very cool.

I’ve read where people have talked about the active electronics used in those models seemed to take away from the sound. Whatever that means.

Having said that, your ears are the best judge and preamps are replaceable if you like everything else about it.

I actually do love the J and P. Especially the P. I just like making fun of the Fender cult :slight_smile:
