FENDER Squier Deluxe 5-String Active Jazz Bass - Sunburst
High-Quality High-Value Five-String
The Deluxe Jazz Bass® Active V (five-string) is perfect for either a burgeoning five-string player seeking active tones, or as a low-cost backup for any working musician. An active three-band EQ lets you precisely shape your tone for extra girth, punch or cut, while the easily-accessible slap switch easily switches between modern or vintage tones.
- Maple neck with "C"-shaped profile and 20-fret ebonol fingerboard
- Dual single-coil Jazz Bass pickups
- Master volume, blend control, three-band active EQ with "stacked" bass/treble control knob
- Mid-scoop "slap switch"
- Vintage-style five-string bridge with single-groove saddles
- Quick-release battery compartment
The slap switch activates the active electronics, boosting the bass and treble while slightly "scooping" the mids—this tone is ideal for funky slap-style basslines.
VINTAGE-STYLE BRIDGE WITH SADDLE GROOVES
This modern instrument offers a classic touch with a vintage-style five-string bridge with single-groove saddles, offering plenty of tuning stability and sustain.
"C"-SHAPED NECK PROFILE
The comfortable "C"-shaped neck profile of this instrument (the shape of the neck in cross section) is sculpted to impart a vintage-style playing feel. The most prevalent neck profile shape, it’s remarkably comfortable and is ideal for all playing styles.
