OVERVIEW

A new shape, powerful electronics and a super comfortable playing experience.

Enter a new dimension of Fender bass. 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 HH 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 dual Dimension Bass humbucking pickups are both powerful and nuanced, and its five-way switching, 18-volt onboard 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, and locking strap buttons. Available in elegant Natural, Black, Cayenne and Violin Burst gloss finishes. Hard-shell case, leather strap and 10' cable included.

    Comments about Fender American Deluxe Dimension Bass V 5-String HH Electric Bass:

    This bass guitar is so versatile! I can produce many tones with this and I know there are many of you out there who are way more experienced that I am. And because you can get many tones out of this, I am very sure you can use this in many genres. It plays and sounds great out of the box. I gigged mine once already without bring it for setup and I have no complains. Pair this with an SVT or any great bass amp and you will definitely enjoy it. Definitely far from how my Ibanez SR505 sounds. I played someone else's American Deluxe P-Bass and American Deluxe J-Bass. The American Deluxe Dimension V HH surpasses both, in my opinion.

    Comments about Fender American Deluxe Dimension Bass V 5-String HH Electric Bass:

    In my opinion the USA Fender Dimension is the best sounding stock Fender bass I have ever bought and I have and had many! I was a little worried because the overseas and Mexican ones I played before buying this was not that impressive! Musician Friend had a special of the American model so I thought I'd give it a try. The USA is totally different. Day and night difference! You can get a MusicMan, a P-Bass and Jazz sound from this Dimension model .... I bought the maple neck model... WOW! ... Love it!
