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 five-string Deluxe Dimension Bass V 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, five-saddle Fender Hi-Mass bridge, five-in-line die-cast mini tuners, headstock “tunnel” string retainer (for A, D and G strings), 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 V 5-String:

          I'll start by saying I love Fender products, I have 3 US Fender basses, and a Strat. I wanted to add a 5 string to my collection so I tried this bass. I ordered one through my local shop and it wasn't long before I returned it. This bass was not up to the standard I've grown to expect from Fender.

          I'll start with the pros: The US electronics sounded good, very modern and snappy. That was about all I liked about it...

          Cons: Set up was terrible, couldn't get the strings even close to fender standard height without a shim. The finish on the neck was tacky and seemed to get clumpy and wear in spots after playing the bass for only a few days. The fret ends were very sharp and would have needed a good amount of filing. The battery compartments were cheap and felt like they were not going to last long. It was difficult to play the low B without it making contact with the pickup pole, causing a loud pop sound.

          As I said, I'm picky... but this bass had so many corners cut on it that it did not feel worth the cost. I know the mexican fenders are suppose to be intermediate level instruments, but I've played squiers that had been built with more care.

          I hope the american dimensions are made with more quality control, because the mexican one was very disappointing.

          Not Bad At All

          About Me Experienced

          Pros

          • Good Feel
          • Good Pick Up
          • Well Made Felt Good

          Cons

          • Needed Better Strings

          Best Uses

          • Rock And Country

          Comments about Fender Deluxe Dimension Electric Bass V 5-String:

          Played one today. Neck felt good. Comfortable in my lap, light weight. Played thru an Ampeg practice amp. Sounded terrible. Put it thru a B15 and it rocked. EQ is backwards to what play. Just had to look down. This is a great rock and country bass. Played with the mid-sweep for different tones. Good deeps and highs. Maybe not for funk or jazz. I will buy one soon and use it. Just change the strings. A good Med-light should work fine. Good buy for the price.
