We love Fender's update on their classic Jazz Bass. It has the looks and dimensions of a vintage Jazz Bass, and it also sounds traditional in Passive mode.
In active mode the new 3 band preamp adds punch and makes it much more versatile. The new N3 pickups are noisefree. You get a traditional looking and sounding Jazz Bass plus the ability to cut through any mix with the help of the active preamp. Great!
