I have 11 basses including a custom-made and a couple that are vintage. THIS is my favorite bass right now. It has a limited tonal range, but one which really cuts through the music. The front and rear pu's go from fat to growl and the neck is flawless. The ebonol fingerboard provides a smooth feel and a tight response. I cannot believe this bass is 300 bucks. It's almost unfair that anyone just starting out can have a bass that is high end professional quality. Where was this bass 20 years ago!? Kudos to Squire. You have officially eclipsed your big brother.

.I have never found a bass that is equal to this one. I play classical cello as well as electric bass, and I demand an exprressive quality from my instruments; this bass completely delivers. I can dial in any sound I want just with the active pickups, and the ebenol fretboard facilitates faster shifting. This is an excellent bass.

.I bought a slightly used all black Deluxe Jazz 4 string bass 8 months ago, and really like the way it plays and sounds. I did find out that Rotosound strings sound horrible on this bass! GHS Boomers are the way to go on this bass. I can say that once you put the right strings on this bass, it sounds like a million $$$ no doubt. I suggest that you get the all black version in that it is an absolutely knock-dead great looking bass! This bass is worlds better than the Fender MIM Standard Basses.

.This is one of the best basses that I have played (besides my Ibanez TRB 70)

The tone is amazing and the bass is well built too.

I have the sunburst version and it looks even more beautiful in person.

If your looking for a good bass without putting down a whole lot of money, THIS IS IT!!!!

Rarely would I buy another bass that is the same make and model. However, I had some gift certificates along with other types of certificates from this site and decided to use them to get another bass. I own the black version of the Active Deluxe 4 string and it is the best bass I have owned until I bought the Sunburst version of the Deluxe Active Jazz Bass. This bass plays better than its Black counterpart of which is nothing short of dying and going to bass guitar heaven!

.This bass is an incredible value. It sounds better than basses that cost 3 or 4 times more. I thought I' d give it a shot, not sure what to expect. As soon as I played it, whoa! It has that funk, pop, slap sound that I really only got from a Music Man before (it was borrowed & I had to return it). I have played a few higher end basses. Being a sax player mainly I don't have high-end money to spend (not on a bass, anyway). The sound of this thing is killer. Big, fat tones. And, absolutely perfect for slapping & grooving. I will be selling my Peavey Cirrus BXP (nice, smooth playing bass) because this is the only 4 stringer I need. I had it set up by my bass guru, put on some DR Fatbeams, and now it's the perfect bass for me. I have the 5 stringer on order & if it sounds & feels like this I'll be selling my Cirrus 5 string, too. Squier has done it this time. If you're not concerned about the name on the headstock, try this bass. You will love it!

.Sounds better than the fender jazz i picked up.
Squier Deluxe Jazz Bass IV Active Black
.OK, I'm not a real bass player, I'm still learning. But this Squier Bass fit my hand and seemed to have better action then all other basses in its price range and higher priced basses. I've tried several brands and bought this one.

.I've been playing for almost 10 years and everytime I would walk into a music store, I would immediately go to the expensive basses (I own a Fender P and Jag bass). Well this time I happened upon this bass, played it, and was blown away! I purchased it right away. It has an incredible range of tones from the active pickups (not just a preamp like other fenders), it can go from super gritty to big n thumpy and everywhere in between. The finish on the sunburst model is beautiful and the neck with ebonol board looks and plays incredible. It beat my Precision and Jag for main bass. The moment you get a chance, try this bass. Even if you don't buy it, just playing it will make the trip to the store worth it.
Squier Deluxe Jazz Bass IV Active Black
.I don't know why there isn't a rosewood fingerboard on this instrument. The ebonol fingerboard looked strange and felt stranger. If I decide to buy this instrument, I will get used to it, not a big deal really, it just surprised me.Other than that, I was extremely impressed! I'd played Schecter and Ibanez basses with active pickups - basses that cost much more than this one, and those sounded worse. The tones I could get with this bass, wow!! REALLY amazing!Other good points - finish was quite nice, and the neck felt pretty good. I tend to like Precision basses better, at least partially because of the necks, but the neck on this Jazz bass felt better than the necks on other Jazz basses. I don't own the instrument, so cannot comment on durability, but the sound and the overall feel and appearance.. outstanding!!
