OVERVIEW

Fender's 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 Deluxe Dimension Bass IV is a phenomenal instrument, with an ash body in the completely new Dimension shape (alder body on Black-finish model). Its graphite-reinforced maple neck has a comfortable "C"-shaped profile and smooth satin finish, topped by a 9.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets.

The instrument's sonic sophistication is unmatched. Its single Dimension Bass humbucking pickup is powerful and nuanced, and its 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 black pickguard, knurled chrome control knobs, Fender Hi-Mass bridge, standard open-gear tuners, side-mounted oval output jack and rear-mounted quick-release battery compartment. Available in elegant Natural, Black and Aged Cherry Burst gloss finishes. Deluxe gig bag included.

    Comments about Fender Deluxe Dimension Electric Bass IV:

    Been playing bass for over 50 years and still gig quite a bit. I have been looking for the best sounding bass for live performances that is reasonably priced...... A good working bass that you're not afraid to take out of the house or get banged up. This is the best I have found so far. Really good solid sound that cuts through. Versatile sound that makes it ideal for cover band work. 18 volt Electronics gives you lots of headroom. This thing is really bright.....decent lows but if you are looking for a fat / round sound, this is not the bass for you. Turn up the mids and it will really grind. Neck is somewhere between a jazz and P .......real nice. Feels like a Fender but doesn't sound like one. Set up out of the box was great.....only had to adjust string and pickup height. Neck and intonation were right on. This is a beautiful guitar. I purchased the natural finish. Fit and finish we're excellent.

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Dimension Electric Bass IV:

      I've owned classic Precision bass, Precison Lite Bass and sold them a few years ago when I got out of the band scene. I recently got back into a band and I needed a bass. I went looking for a Jazz or Precision and saw this beauty was coming out in November. So I waited. And waited. It finally arrived and I am thrilled with this guitar! It sounds great, feels great and looks great! (I got the Cherry Sunburst) I love the styling and the on board active electronics give this thing a range of tones that will cover everything you need.
      Nice to see something new from Fender that is different yet still has that distinctive Fender feel. Fit and finsih is flawless. I did have to adjust neck truss rod a bit but other than that she was ready to go! This MIM Fender guitar is a great value. I ran inot a few glithces getting the thing ordered but Musicians Friend customer service did a great job of sorting things out for me. Good job Fender and good job MF!

        Comments about Fender Deluxe Dimension Electric Bass IV:

        This bass really surprised me. Its tone and playability are just superior to any MIM fender. I compared its playability with a couple american fenders and this one played waaay better (even with dead strings) It has a very bright sound and really cuts through. I dont know what theyre doing at the mexican factory but its working. This bass put American fenders and Gibson basses to shame. I highly suggest this bass for anyone. Im very curious to see how the American dimension play!
