    I'm currently at a giant fork in the road. I deffinitly want to buy a fender american jazz bass. im not sure if i should go with the american jazz deluxe (active electronics) or the just the american jazz (passive electronics). i was told that the deluxe sounds a lot cleaner, and is better for gigs. on the other hand i was told that the american jazz has a warmer sound, and is better for recording. i am sort of leaning towards the passive american jazz, because im running already mostly analog pedals and a tube amp.
    what do you think is better for an all around bass?:cool:
