An active 5-string Dimension Bass built for the working player looking for power and versatility.
A bold entry into Fender’s legendary family of electric basses, the Deluxe Active Dimension Bass V brings upgraded features and components to the working musician. A true player’s instrument, designed for discerning bassists, this bass is ready to hit the stage with authentic Fender tone and standout modern style. Easy on the eyes (and the wallet) this instrument delivers at every level.
A pair of Dimension humbucking pickups powers this tonally diverse beast, offering rich, full-range sound with smooth highs, beefy lows and punchy mids that are just right for powering through a mix. The five-way pickup switch offers tons of tonal variety, allowing you to select any combination of pickups as well as using just the inner or outer coils. Combining the muscular 18V preamp and active three-band EQ with these versatile pickups unlocks a wealth of sonic variations that will match any song’s needs. The modern “C”-shaped neck profile is ideal for all playing styles and makes it easy to play fleet-fingered lines. The contoured neck heel allows you easily reach the upper registers, while the 12”-radius fingerboard with medium jumbo frets is designed for comfort and speed. The HiMass™ bridge creates increased sustain along with enhanced intonation accuracy and tuning stability. The sleek contours of the double-cutaway body are designed for ergonomic comfort, hugging the player’s body while showing its Fender pedigree.
The stylishly functional aesthetic appointments include knurled flat-top control knobs, nickel/chrome hardware, 3-ply B/W/B pickguard and pearloid dot inlays. Offering pro-level performance at an affordable price, the Deluxe Active Dimension Bass V is perfect for tonehounds who need a variety of tones night after night.
