A new dimension in bass excellence, the American Elite Dimension Bass V is an active 5-string bass that melds our most modern innovations with powerfully punchy tone, sleek style and smooth playing feel to create an unparalleled bass playing experience. Engineered for 21st-century bassists who desire flowing modern aesthetics and tone that matches any genre, this bass is ideal for those who define the vanguard of modern music.
Dimension Bass humbucking pickups are loaded with powerful, responsive tone and responsive dynamics that respond to every nuance of your playing. These burly pickups are fueled by a powerful 18-volt preamp with three-band EQ to cut through a mix with even more chest-thumping tone and plenty of bite. Designed for comfort, the asymmetrical neck profile is slightly thicker on the bass side for easy gripping while performing fret hand gymnastics. The hand-rubbed oil finish on the back of the neck provides a fast, smooth playing feel with effortless position changes while Posiflex™ graphite support rods run the length of the neck, adding stability to the neck and resisting temperature- and humidity-induced warping. The HiMass™ bridge increases note attack and resonance for thunderous basslines with massive punch and boundless sustain. In a vintage-inspired touch, the truss rod adjustment wheel—matching gold/zinc-colored on maple-necked models—is located at the butt end of the neck for easier access, making neck relief adjustments a snap.
This bass is packed with stylishly modern aesthetic touches—from the ergonomic contours to the durable gloss finish this instrument will astonish the audience with elegantly functional style. The American Elite Dimension Bass V is a daringly innovative bass for adventurous players who need an instrument that can push the boundaries of possibility. Includes a redesigned Elite Molded Case with body-hugging contours to provide increased protection for your cherished instrument and TSA locks.

Comments about Fender American Elite Dimension Bass V HH, Rosewood, Electric Bass Guitar:
The way I came to get this bass is a very long story, but let's say that I truly loved my American Elite Jazz and wanted the same feel and playability in the next bass. I also wanted a 5 string Fender and while shopping I came across this bass. I was captivated by the Cayenne burst color and decided to give it a try. While waiting for it to arrive, I wondered if I had made the right decision. Maybe I should have gotten a different fender? Maybe something else. Once I saw it, the color did not disappoint-- just beautiful! Then, I played it, and wow! The P/U selector switch makes changing tones so simple. Then there is the tone of the double humbuckers-- can't say enough about the tone. Great growl and true Fender tones from P to J and lots of others too. I really think the tonal possibilities are endless. I am still exploring this instrument, but it is an excellent bass on many levels.
I am admittedly a Fender fan. I can say without hesitation that if you are considering a new bass, with HH or not, that this one is worth a try.
