This bass should really be called a Precision Bass, as the only things Jazz Bass about it are the body and tuners. Plays as good as any Mexican Fender, the 1/4 Pound P pickup is a big plus, I use these on all my P-basses, the single volume knob really makes this a great minimalists bass. My primary bass before I got this was a '95 American Standard P with similar electronics, but my Hoppus is a bit warmer, and has been getting more use. The bridge isn't the greatest, but at least it's string-through. I didn't buy this bass because of Hoppus, I bought it because I love the concept of the bass: a P-bass with a Jazz body. The price for new ones seems a bit steep, but all Fender has jumped in price in the last 2 years (and during a recession). It would be nice if they came with hardshells, but no Mexi does. On the plus side there, it's not difficult to find a decent Roadrunner case for WAY less then the ones that say Fender on them.I don't believe P-basses are for every style of playing, and this bass is no exception. Don't let the punk aspect of its design scare you, the tone is pretty straight forward P-bass, with a bit of brightness, and all tone pots really do is take tone out of your sound. If you need to adjust your tone, get an active bass or use your amps EQ.

The low rating I gave for this bass is not because I am not a Blink 182 fan. I don't like the band, but I like their music. This bass, is horrid. What it is, is a Mexican Jazz body with a string thru bridge (which is a good feature, usually it's only on American basses), no tone knob (only volume), and Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound pickups. I'm not a fan of the Jazz bodies, so I could easily get the exact same tone if I replace the pickups on my P-Bass with the Quarter Pounders. So, if you want Mark Hoppus's tone, buy a P-Bass, and slap on some Quarter Pounders, by doing that, you can go outside the square and get even more different tones. This is definitely not worth the price tag. It also doesn't feel like it's a solid bass, you know, loose ends here and there. This bass' main feature (the pickups) is available everywhere for cheap.

Amazing and sexy

By Ryan Mueller

from Sturgeon Bay, WI

Comments about Fender Mark Hoppus Signature Bass Guitar:

Just a fantastic bass. I have purchased the surf green transparent model, and I am considering buying the other model. I have been a HUGE blink- 182 fan for a long time, and Mark Hoppus is pretty much my idol.
This is a very awesome bass. I have been wanting it for a while and I finally got it at around Christmas time in 2011. I played it at a local music store a few times, and I fell in love with it. It's got an awesome tone to it, and it's pretty much the perfect tone for the music I play. Which happens to be pop- punk.
Good action, great tone, and it looks very sexy.
Definitley worth the price. It's a tad expensive, but it's totally worth the price.

Great Bass

By Bassman86

from Topeka Kansas

Comments about Fender Mark Hoppus Signature Bass Guitar:

I bought this bass new in 2004 from a local Fender dealer. The original genre I played was punk pop. Green Day, Blink 182, and Yellowcard. I now play mostly Alternative rock, grunge, and do a lot of 80's cover songs. If you want a bass that stands out not only in looks but sound, look no further.

Comments about Fender Mark Hoppus Signature Bass Guitar:

I got this bass used for Christmas, and I can tell you, it's a great bass. Whether you play it with a pick or your fingers (I do both) it still has that trebly, ballsy, pop punk sound. Of course, I play Blink 182 with it, but I play tons of other stuff, too, so it's versatile. But if you're looking for a simple but versatile bass, get this, but get it used. It may have some wear on it, but it plays just the same.

Don't even think it,just get it

By Asier182

from Spain

Comments about Fender Mark Hoppus Signature Bass Guitar:

This bass is really what you are looking for. It fits with any music style pretty well, I recently discovered that goes perfect with reggae music! I got my hoppus signature about a month ago, and it's totally incredible. Plays great, comfortable, awesome sound, light and responds to all your movements way too awesome. Also, it's pickguard are incredible, they catch the sound so great. It only has a volume knob, but you dont need anything more since you can control it from your amp so that's ok. Like i said, great for any music genre, but if you are looking for punk-pop/punk-rock music don't think about it, this is your bass. I have no words to describe how nice it feels to play it, you have to try it, that's all i can say. Buy it!!!

Comments about Fender Mark Hoppus Signature Bass Guitar:

Most people shoot this bass down, call it limited, cheap, tackey. Ive been able to play all kinds of styles with mine. From the punk rock that it was designed in mind for, to classic hard rock, garage, even alternative worship. I love the look, the pickups, and the feel. Once you get it set up the way you want it, theres no lettin ya down.

    Comments about Fender Mark Hoppus Signature Bass Guitar:

    Before purchasing, i tried Schector, Warwick AND some other Fenders. Oddly with only one volume control, THIS one felt and sounded great. Others can get too complicated with this and that but this is simple - TURN it up and GO! Don't listen to the other comments man, it's a Fender P so don't overthink it.

    Comments about Fender Mark Hoppus Signature Bass Guitar:

    I got this bass when It frist came out, for 589$ back in 2002-2003. It seems the older and more beat up It gets the better It sounds. I recommend getting this bass totally rewired. The original wiring was horrible, once you get that done. You offically own one of the best Mexican basses ever made. The thing I love most about my bass is, the vaule just keeps going up. ($.$)

    Comments about Fender Mark Hoppus Signature Bass Guitar:

    Im not a sound engineer, but iv always looked at this guitar and thought about buying it. So i did, and the second i plugged that into my new ampeg BA600 it was like my perfect sound, the tone i have been looking for. If you dont want to spend some seriouse cash but you want something that isnt overloaded with features but still has a truely good quality then you found your bass.

    well im not going to lie i dont like mark hoppus that much but as soon as i pick this thing up and played it i wanted it. Im usually a jazz bass player because precision necks are too meaty for me but having this lets me get the precision tone but it still feels nice. Great bass

    Amazing and plain = wonderful.

    By Blue-EUJsf

    from Anaheim, CA

    Comments about Fender Mark Hoppus Signature Bass Guitar:

    This bass is very similar to one that I designed that I am hoping Fender will one day work with me on. I seen this bass and knew it was the closest thing I would find to what I wanted for so long. I LOVE the Jazz shape; it's beatiful and perfect for a comfortable play. I love the Precision pick ups, an amazing rock sound to pull the strength of the bass together. Also great for classic rock, pop and punk. I may not like Blink 182 as a band, but that has nothing to do with this review. The bass itself is almost exactly what I've been waiting for... I would add a tone knob (maybe the option of a wah-wah bar) and yes, even a distortion switch on the bass itself. Maybe a smaller body like the Mustang bass, but keeping the smooth curve shape of the Jazz, Love the Precision edge it has though! Overall I give it an 8. Was it worth it? Every penny.

    Know your style

    By FenderBassGuy

    from North Carolina

    Comments about Fender Mark Hoppus Signature Bass Guitar:

    I just bought this bass today from a local shop, it is an amazing bass, but i say know your style because if you play with your fingers which is what i did right away it doesnt sound that great, but using a pick makes a world of difference. The sound is awesome, but it is that "punk" sound so if that what your looking for then you found it. The reason I marked the value down is because it is abit pricey for a fender mexi, but so far, to me, it is worth every cent

    A simple but sweet bass.

    By TemporaryMysteryBassist

    from Lakewood, Washington

    Comments about Fender Mark Hoppus Signature Bass Guitar:

    When I first got my black on black Mark Hoppus bass I had intended to use it as a display item however at the coaxing of one of my band mates I took it to a gig and was blown away by the pure versatility by such a simple bass. Running through a Peavy 810 cabinet I was able to bounce a glass of beer across a stage and get unbelieveably warm tones. When attacking a line with a plastic pic you get sharp, crisp tones and the precussive effects can't be beat. I'd recommend for higher scale players or collectors.

    Comments about Fender Mark Hoppus Signature Bass Guitar:

    I got this bass a couple months back. I gotta say I love the tone of those Seymour Duncans and the physical features of it make it such a beautiful instrument. It gives me an instrument as vibrant a alive as my Fender P bass and my Fender Mike Dirnt bass. Great for gigging and anything else.

    Comments about Fender Mark Hoppus Signature Bass Guitar:

    Ok let's start off with stating that YES INDEED IT DOSE NOT HAVE A TONE CONTROLL KNOB. It dosn't need it. The bass has amazing tone already. And if you want to adjust tone settings use your amp or do what I do and get a Sans Amp driver. The sound you'll get is amazing. The bass is very comfortable to play. Fast neck and not to heavy of a body. I have the Daphney Blue model and I love the mother of pearl pickgaurd. The sustain on this bass is amazing. And the string through body is a huge plus. The only way you won't enjoy this bass is if you slap. The bass is designed for pick play. Which the quater pound pickups just compliment the style of play to a whole new level. I would recomend this to anyone who love the look of a jazz bazz but the neck of a precision bass. It's worth every penny and you won't be dissapointed. I get so many compliments everyshow about the sound of the bass. Pick one up.

    Short and sweet. forget the negative reviews, you will not be disappointed with this bass. Pair it with a SansAmp and you will have one killer setup. I play an American Jazz as well, and this one is just as good for half the money.

    Comments about Fender Mark Hoppus Signature Bass Guitar:

    As innovative as the concept is, I happen to be a bigger fan of the Jazz Bass pick-ups and the Precision bass necks, as opposed to the other way around. Jazz Bass necks only have 20 frets, where the Precision bass bas 22. Oh, and what use is there in having no tone knob? I think even die-hard punk players are better off just getting a standard Precision Bass.
