    Do you mean the fender american deluxe V with active pick ups? I wasn't aware that there was a mexican made version of this guitar. Or do you mean the jazz V? Do you have a pic?

    It's called the Standard Jazz Deluxe V, I believe. It is indeed a MIM bass. I played one a couple weeks ago, and it had a VERY nice B string. I was so impressed with it I almost bought it, but just couldn't justify it. Now, understand that to me this was a complete oddity, beings that I usually hate Fender, and Fender B strings even more. Not shabby for an MIM, I tell you that much.

    I dunno if the pups were active, but it had the full EQ (jack on the side) with 4 pots, one of which was a concentric pot .I can't remember which pot was which, but it was Volume/Pan/Bass+Treble/Mid or somesuch.
