Fender's design of tomorrow is here with huge humbucking power.
Dimension basses now take their place among Fender’s greatest bass designs as the modern pinnacle of pro-level bass style, power, performance and personality.
The company that invented electric bass now brings you an elegantly original body style with all-new pickups, electronics and other fine features that let you sculpt and personalize your tone as no Fender bass ever has before. It is a level of bass artistry unparalleled in Fender history, and it is the future of your Fender bass experience. In every way, it’s an entirely new Dimension in Fender bass.
The five-string American Deluxe Dimension Bass V is a phenomenal instrument, with an ash body in the completely new Dimension shape and featuring a comfortable asymmetrical neck heel. Its maple neck is crafted with a great-feeling asymmetrical “C”-shaped profile, Posiflex™ graphite neck support rods, a convenient heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel, smooth hand-rubbed oil finish and five-bolt neck plate. The compound-radius (9.5”-14”) maple or rosewood fingerboard has 21 medium jumbo frets and a bone nut, while the headstock has a gloss finish and Stealth “A” string retainer.
The instrument’s sonic sophistication is simply unmatched. Its single Dimension Bass humbucking pickup is both powerful and nuanced, and its 18-volt preamp, three-band active EQ (center-detented treble, mid and bass boost/cut) and master volume deliver remarkable tonal versatility with any degree of muscle and finesse. Other premium features include a three-ply parchment pickguard, knurled chrome control knobs, five-saddle Fender Hi-Mass bridge, vintage-style tuners with tapered shafts and a four-over/one-under configuration, locking strap buttons, side-mounted oval output jack and rear-mounted battery compartment. Available in elegant Natural, Black, Cayenne and Violin Burst gloss finishes. Hard-shell case, leather strap and 10’ cable included.
Enter a new dimension of Fender bass.

Comments about Fender American Deluxe Dimension Bass V 5-String Electric Bass:
The price is a little steep...I got mine during a promotion for a bit cheaper. This thing sounds and plays awesome and I fell in love with it immediately. I own an Ernie Ball Music Man Sterling 5H and this. Both are active 5 strings, both are red; the Fender is Cayenne and the Music Man is Translucent Red. The finish on this is slightly darker than my MM and the wood grain showing through really looks beautiful. My MM has a maple fretboard and this has rosewood; I don't really hear a difference from that. The 2 sound very similar and I like them both but I think you can get more sounds from this Dimension bass. This has an 18v active E.Q. vs. a typical 9v. There are cool options for tones to make it sound like just about any style you want to play. Just simply roll one or more of the knobs; they have notches in them to easily find the spot (almost like a pickup selector knob on a PRS). The neck is noticeably wider on this that my MM but it's still comfortable to play.
