OVERVIEW

Fender's new Dimension 5-string in the American Elite Series.

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, Maple, Electric Bass Guitar:

This American Elite Dimension 5-string bass is everything I was hoping it would be. The tone is amazing, the playability is excellent and its incredible, and it's extremely versatile. It's got killer looks, solid electronics and great hardware. The pickups are stellar. The oiled neck feels so smooth; it's comfortable to play for hours. However, the second fret was nearly dead and the bass needed an extensive setup right out of the box. I don't mind doing certain maintenance but it did need a stop off at my local shop to get it to where it should be, which was quite a bummer. Still, I would absolutely recommend this bass. my issue was probably a fluke.

Comments about Fender American Elite Dimension Bass V HH, Maple, Electric Bass Guitar:

This is my favorite bass ever. I've had two custom built and this is my favorite.

1. Huge low end for my 3 piece band. Piano string clarity if you want it.
2. Tons of different tones,
3. The compound neck is the best. Low pressure but still taunt.
4. I had mine professionally setup before I took delivery so I don't know what the factory setup was like. mine has close to perfect intonation.
