    Comments about Fender American Standard HH Dimension Bass V Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Bass Guitar:

    This is the third member of my bass collection. I have an entry level Ibanez that is used as a loner or as a backup to the backup. I have an American Standard P-Bass V that has been jack-of-all-trades for practice, Church bands, and a rock cover band. I was looking for another bass with better access to the higher frets and a bridge pickup to help with the early Duff McKagan-esque sound. I looked at several models of J-basses and Lakland basses. After reading quite a bit about the new Dimension bass, I was thinking that I may have found what I was looking for. The Ed Friedland review of this bass on Youtube was enough to convince me to rick buying one without playing it first. Here are the pros and cons based on two months of playing and performing.

    Pros:
    - Asymmetrical neck is extremely comfortable and easier on my slightly arthritic wrist.
    - Access to higher frets is much improved over P-bass.
    - Variety of tones is incredible (see aforementioned Youtube review)
    - Low strings are much clearer than 5 string P-bass (also leads to a con. See below)

    Cons:
    - Heavy (not sure of the weight, but it feels a lot heavier than the P-bass. Still have a sore shoulder after a long performance or weekend at Church)
    - Smaller gauge strings than P or J bass five-strings. I overlooked this in the specs when making this purchase. My fault. The B string sounds wonderful (much better than my P-bass). The smaller gauges, however, do not lend this bass to lower pitch tuning without excessive tweaking of the setup. My P-bass can tune 1/2 step down with or without including Drop D and not buzz anymore than in standard pitch. I have yet to find a sweet spot in the setup that will allow both tunings with this bass and not compromise the playability I desire. As a result, I have relegated this bass to daily practice, Church performances, and any other gig requiring standard tuning only. My P-bass is used for my cover band and anything requiring alternative tuning. Still, no regrets.

      Comments about Fender American Standard HH Dimension Bass V Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Bass Guitar:

      Bought this bass as an opened box/return. Was still in factory new condition with plastic on pick guard and tuners. This bass was a pleasant addition to my collection. I own a MIM Fender Active Deluxe 5 string, and a Lakland 55-01 Deluxe 5 string. This bass is as good quality as the Lakland, and better than the MIM. String height out of the box was high for me, but I have never gotten a new bass that didn't need a little love. The satin neck is a dream to play. Smooth and comfortable. I think the new neck shape really helps with this as well. The strings needed to be broken in to really get a good sound. They were bass was super trebly out of the box, and I did not like the sound of it initially. After a week of playing it warmed up and now has a great low end, and tons of growl, even more than I can get out of my jazz. The passive controls are ok. I pretty much play with everything wide open. I prefer Master Volume, Blend, Tone, probably will be switching to this setup down the road. The tonal possibilities are not as great as in my other two active basses, but that is to be expected I think when you go to passive. I do prefer the low B String on my other two basses, but this one is ok. Slap on this bass is fun, sounds like a good slap should. Came with the tolex case, strap and chord. I already had a molded case for my MIM so I will just use that when transporting the bass.
