anybody heard them yet? I think they're the first Fenders with Active pickups.
They deffinately aren't the first ones with actives. The Zone is just the newer version of the Precision Lite. Those played well, but I can't comment on the new Zone bass.
Ever heard of the Deluxe Active Jazz?
Preamp, not active pickups.
The MIM Zone is the one that is pretty much an updated P Bass Lyte, the MIA is a new design.

Kinda bass-ackwards way to get replacement Peavey pups, no?
Yeah, the MIM Zone is a P/J, pretty much a P-Lyte.

Ive only played one zone, it was an MIM, it had one feature that I actually liked and that was string thru the body, The neck was fairly thin and easy to play, but there was something about the tone that didnt do it for me, IMO the MIM jazz's are a much better bass compared to the MIM zones.
