Natural finish and true 70's looks for Fender's best modern bass. It has the looks and dimensions of a classic Jazz Bass, and it also sounds traidtional 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. The good news is that the low B is Fender's best so far, so in essence you get a traditional looking and sounding Jazz Bass with a tight and loud 5th string plus the ability to cut through any mix with the help of the active preamp. Great!
