i own four Fender basses, two jazz abd two precision.
One is an Am. Std. Jazz bass.
Well this Am. Elite precision bass destroys, yes literally destroys them all to such an extent I now want to sell the others to buy an Am. Elite jazz bass.
The bass tone is a very warm precision tone with the actual possibility of buzzing it a little bit using the bridge pickup.
The passive tone is fantastic and in fact I play the bass mainly passive since the preamp is so powerful that you have to get well used to it in order to achieve a good control of the instrument when played active.
The bridge pickup is also powerful although not very suitable for a biting Jacoesque tone in my opinion.
The neck is very comfortable especially in the high range improving the bass use in the high register.
Guys give this bass a try!!
