    Default Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass

    Iím trying to find info on my mates Jazz Bass. Itís a 2012 Mexican Deluxe with active circuitry. Does anybody know whether itís just the EQ/preamp thatís active, or is it the pickups as well? Heís thinking of upgrading the pickups, and I donít know where to start!

    Any info/thoughts/ideas gratefully received.

    Thanks

    I think that was just an active tone circuit, and not active pickups.

    I have the Mex Deluxe P-bass (P/J Hybrid) and it has the active EQ. The pickups are N3 noiseless. I just took all of the active circuitry out (while retaining the pickups) and much prefer it as a passive.
