    Hello guys...
    Up for sale is a beautiful Fender Power jazz bass with fishman piezo!
    I've never played a jazz with piezo pickups, but I gotta tell ya that it sounds wicked! It covers Jaco growls to silky smooth
    mids.
    It's got a nice, vintage looking brown sunburst finish, reverse vintage tuners, FISHMAN piezo bridge, Rosewood board, maple neck with oil finish, brown tortoise pickguard, 2 Standard Vintage Alnico Magnet Jazz Bass Single Coil Pickups (Mid & Bridge)
    (4 In-the-Saddle Piezo Pickups)
    The bass is practically new... I used it for about Month and a 1/2 but it stayed home the whole time. I still have the plastic on the pickguard...

    Visit fender website for more details

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but is this still passive? I noticed a battery compartment on the Fender site but I presume that this is just for the Piezo pickup as there was no mention of active electronics. Is that correct?

    Also, do you happen to have any sound clips?

    Thanks.

    It's not a dumb question...
    To be honest, I am not sure if it's active or passive. The 2 volume and 1 tone config. are passive functions, but the piezo pickup controls (1 volume 1 tone) are definitely active
    I'd say it's a hybrid....for lack of a better knowledge
    BTW no sound clips. I don't have the equipment

    Is this a USA model? (The Fender site doesn't usually state the country of production for the various models it offers even though some are Mexican and some are Japanese.)

    Also does it still work if the battery is removed? (Obviously the Piezo won't but I was wondering whether the magnetic pups still work.)

    Thanks.

    It is actually MIM, but definitely comparable to a USA in terms of quality.

    If this is the same Fishman piezo system that is in my Bolin NS 5 then it sounds fabulous. It is a very open sound, sits REALLY well with acoustic instruments in a way that sometimes mag pickups just cannot.

    I have played one of these and I must say, this is a great bass. The piezo really adds some very cool tonal options...
