Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass V 5-String Noiseless PU Vintage White MIM 73531
Description (see more pics below)
This is a 2008 Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass V 5-string bass in Vintage White finish. Features include:
— Alder body w/ maple neck & rosewood board
— C-shape, 9.5” radius J neck w/ med-jumbo frets
— Active Noiseless pickups w/ 3-band active EQ & Pan control
The vintage white finish on this has yellowed to an awesome almost TV Yellow look. I’m not kidding when I say you can coax a ton of different sounds out of this bass. The EQ is extremely sensitive, so just barely moving the sweepable mid, gives many different and USEFUL tones. Same for the Hi/Low EQ. Pretty much any setting on this bass sounds great—and that is NOT true for most Fender basses. Most of them don’t have forgiving EQs. Also you get a Pan control for infinite adjustability between the pickups. I can’t say enough about the sound of this, so I’ll just shut up.
Cosmetically, it’s got marks on the finish (see pics) but I think it still looks amazing. Frets are in great condition. Weight is 9 pounds, 13 ounces. No case. Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing. Thanks for looking!

Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Thanks!
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 15 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "Still Kickin - How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
