First of all, I play Rock/Punk, But I fool around with other styles aswell. I LOVE the neck on the American Series Jazz, I got to play it and compare it to the Highway one for about 10 mins, WAY better than the highway 1...Highway one is kind of muffled. But I cant compare it to the American Delux. I want to beable to get close to the nice deep P-Bass . Will the Deluxe do that better than the American Series(With S-1 switching), because it is active? How many more tones can a Deluxe hit over a strait ole American series? Take into account that I like a lot of bass tones... forinstance, if I play a Music Man Stingray, the Bass Boost almost needs to be above flat.
