    Comments about Fender Cabronita Precision Bass:

    I got very excited when I saw these on sale and ordered one immediately. When I received the bass, it looked great. I did a quick tune-up and set-up...then the wind went out of my sails. The action on E, A, and D was fine. The G saddle simply would not go low enough. I checked the neck and it was perfectly adjusted, so no issue there. The problem is the bridge's baseplate; it's WAY too thick. So thick that, even with the G saddle all the way down, the action was still medium-height at best. I've played bass both as an amateur and a professional for 30 years. I love Fender basses. They're THE STANDARD in my book. If all you do is crank the bass to 10 and pound it with a pick, then this bass will work for you VERY well. If you play a style that requires low action, keep looking. Such a shame...

      Comments about Fender Cabronita Precision Bass:

      I'm really a guitar player, but I needed a bass for recording and the occasional pickup gig. The 90' Dean bass I had wasn't working for me any more. I had recently purchased a semi-hollow Cabronita tele and was pleasantly surprised by it's tone and playability that I decided to try it's big brother out. Good idea! This bass is a top-notch instrument. Built well and can cover all the bases (no pun intended) tone-wise. Looks good, plays good, good balance and the tone is really nice out of the "Fideli'Tron" humbucker. Well done, Fender!

      Comments about Fender Cabronita Precision Bass:

      I bought this bass because of its visual appeal.
      At this price I wasn't sure how the quality would be. Was I surprised! Well built, solid, good set-up right out of the box. I got the sunburst and it is beautiful with no flaws. It feels like an old school P-bass, sounds like one and plays like one. The only modern touches are high mass bridge and pick-up and they're an improvement over the originals. Put flat wounds and a Fender thumb rest on and wow!
