    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. :D (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".
