When Fender and Victor Bailey paired up to create his signature 5-string acoustic-electric bass, the great bassist graciously spent a great deal of time and effort on the collaboration. The result is a unique instrument: The Victor Bailey signature 5-string bass guitar features a beautifully arched back, figured dao back and sides, a laminated spruce top with a gorgeous dao veneer, an abalone rosette, tortoise-shell binding, a 34"-scale neck modeled on Bailey's signature Fender Jazz Bass guitar, satin gold Hipshot licensed lightweight tuners, Fishman electronics, and a deluxe gig bag. The Fender Victor Bailey Signature 5-String is a truly stunning acoustic bass.
Victor Bailey is the first-call session guy, solo artist, consummate sideman, acoustic bassist extraordinaire, and veteran of more than 1,000 recordings by groups and artists including Weather Report, Michael Brecker, LL Cool J, and Mary J. Blige.

Well built in China. Action is good. It buzzed like a piece of plastic. Missing the mellow growl I need in a bass. The intonation up the neck was way off. I was dissapointed and sent it back. Exchanged it for a Breedlove. My Lakeland has me spoiled.
