I am getting my Second Jazz bass (my first being a standard MIM) and I was wondering if you guys could help. I am getting an American Jazz bass but I am not sure if I should go deluxe or not. Any help would be great. What are the differences (other than one being active and the other being passive) What are the benifits of having a passive bass? Would active be the way to go since you get more flexibility? What about an American P-bass? Any help would be great.
