What is the difference between the Jazz Bass and the deluxe jazz bass?
The Deluxe has active electronics, the Jazz is passive.
And if you want to get REALLY nit-picky, the Deluxe comes with a tortoise shell pickguard, and the output jack is the side of the bass, as opposed to the control cavity cover. (As well as different finish options. Arctic white with a tortoise-shell guard... don't get much better than that.)
The deluxe also has a slightly different shape, most notably thinner "horns".
