The latest addition to Fender's Modern Player line of instruments.

The Modern Player series now brings you a whole new dimension in Fender bass sound and style with the Modern Player Dimension™ Bass. In every way—from its distinctive body shape to its easy-access truss rod adjustment wheel to its single three-coil Triplebucker™ bass pickup and special electronics—it’s a bold new step forward in modern Fender bass for the bold modern player.

Modern Player Dimension Bass controls include a master volume and a special five-position rotary pickup selector switch that delivers enormous tonal versatility from the three-coil pickup (front coil alone, front and middle coil together, all three coils together, middle and rear coils together, rear coil alone). Other features include a maple neck with "C"-shaped profile and five-bolt joint, 9.5"-radius maple (Olympic White model) or rosewood (Candy Apple Red and Charcoal Transparent models) fingerboard with 21 jumbo frets, single-ply black pickguard and vintage-style black plastic Jazz Bass control knobs, and four-saddle Fender Hi-Mass bridge.

    As reviewed by Adam Sorokes on 5/4/2014

    Let me start by giving a little info about myself. I have 12 years of experience as a touring and studio guitarist/bassist, mostly in hard rock acts, but I've also played in blues, country, and metal acts as well. I own many different makes and models of basses and guitars but Fenders have always been my favorite due to their versatility and craftsmanship. When you buy a Fender instrument, you know you are getting a solid piece of equipment. Having said that, Fender really missed the boat on the Modern Player Dimension Bass. When I first read about this instrument, I was very excited that Fender was making a bass that was really designed to be a versatile, hard rock machine. I ordered one the day they became available online. When it came in, I picked it up, had it professionally set up then took it home to put it through its paces, and I was very disappointed. Pros: It's very lightweight. The neck is fast and easy to play, quite similar to a Jazz Bass. I like the body style as well, the sort of warped P-Bass is a nice look. Cons: The sound is very disappointing. The triple-bucker leaves a lot to be desired. It has a very think, but soft, bass sound, that I would compare to an upright bass. Extremely little treble, which was surprising from a hum bucker pickup in the bridge position. I anticipated a sound similar to that of a Stingray, given the type of pickup and the position of it. Although there are five positions that one can select using the selector knob, they are not all that different from one another. I found the third position (full triple-bucker) to be the best, but only marginally. Long story short, if you are looking for a bass to use in a hard rock setting, this is probably not going to suit your needs. I feel that it would be better used in a blues or jazz setting, where its soft but full bass sound could be more useful. For musicians looking for Fender bass intending to play hard rock, I would suggest a Blacktop Jazz or Precision Bass, Aerodyne P/J-Bass, or the Modern Player Jazz Bass. Hope this was helpful!
