Best New Style Bass

Comments about Fender Modern Player Dimension Bass:

Very comfortable and sounding bass. I bought mine from Fender and it was perfect from the start. In my experience of making online purchases, you really need to shop the independent stores or the actual manufacturer to get the best bass.

Swing And A Miss

Comments about Fender Modern Player Dimension Bass:

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!
