Come il suo predecessore con elettronica passiva del 2012, il Fender Select Active Jazz Bass porta il nostro basso più versatile a nuovi livelli di eleganza e potenza. Il suo corpo in ontano presenta una tavola armonica in acero fiammato e una splendida finitura Tobacco Sunburst mordenzata a mano con rivestimento superiore laccato lucido. Il suo manico in acero a forma modern “C” con taglio quartersawn presenta un comodo tacco smussato, finitura in vernice satinata e barre di supporto in grafite Posiflex™; la tastiera in palissandro con raggio di curvatura variabile (9,5”-14”) presenta 20 tasti medium jumbo e con eleganti segnatasti a "blocco" color bianco perlato.
Tra gli altri punti di forza, pickup dual single coil Fender Select Jazz Bass, interruttore mini-toggle attivo/passivo, manopola volume master e manopola pan-pot pickup, equalizzatore attivo a tre bande (manopole di boost/taglio alti, medi e bassi), battipenna a tre strati in parchment, ponte high-mass stile vintage (con corde che attraversano il corpo o top-load), meccaniche stile vintage con pin conici e medaglione Fender Select sulla paletta.

I have to admit that I fell in love when I first saw it hanging in my music store. The flamed top is so nice! I plugged it in a SWR amp there, and the magic came out of it. The tone is so hot!! I love that "jazz bass" sound. Passive or active, it sounds good either ways.
I own it since a month now, and I think the oil finish on the neck is a little bit sticky, I need to rub it frequently... I suppose that the sticky effect will go away with time, but for now, it is a little annoying.
My biggest deception is under the pickguard: it is routed! I couldn't believe it when I removed the pickguard: I wanted to expose more of that marvelous flamed top, but under the pickguard, there's a big hole all around the neck pickup, and a route between the neck pickup and the electronics under the knobs plate. I cannot believe that Fender produces instruments like this one in the Select class, and don't make an effort on this. Since there is a layer on top for the maple flamed top, this could have been done easily. I'm really disappointed of this.
On the neck, I wish it had a binding, or the nice contoured heel, like the one on the Select Stratocaster HSS. But I like the nice rosewood finish and I'm really glad that Fender put the square pearl inlays marquers, it looks so good!
Other than that, I love it, it is not the heaviest bass I owned, I love the sound of it and I love to play it.
