Explore a New Sonic Dimension with Fender's 5-String D Bass!Ready yourself for this otherworldly beast of a bass. Your Fender Deluxe Dimension V 5-String electric bass packs a low-end boom with its ash or alder body, comfy C-shaped maple neck topped with a maple fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets, a cool 3-ply pickguard, a 5-saddle Fender Hi-Mass bridge, a Dimension 5-string humbucking pickup, knurled chrome P Bass control knobs, and an 18-volt preamp with active 3-band EQ. This baby delivers that warm and sought-after Fender sound -- with a modern 5-string touch -- and it'll always bring the heavy in any genre or musical style.
Get Solid Resonance with an Ash or Alder BodyIf you go with the alder body, then your Dimension V is going to have very present mids and lows. Many of Fender's guitars are rife with alder, so its tone is closely associated with Fender's long line of distinct sounds. Ash was a very popular wood for Fender's '50s guitars, and it brings out a slightly more twangy sound while still emphasizing your lows and mids in pleasant sonic fashion.
C Shaped Graphite Bar Reinforced Maple Neck and Maple FretboardResting invitingly in your hand is your Dimension's comfy C shaped maple neck -- proof that having a wider 9.5" radius to fit that fifth string in doesn't require any sacrifice in comfort. Also, this appendage's reinforced graphite bar offers assured stability, a longer lifespan, and more consistent intonation. This D Bass' neck is topped with a maple fingerboard. Maple gives your playing a pleasant snappiness without any overbearing twang, which is great when you want to get a little more melodic with your higher strings.
Modern Controls and 3-Band EQThere's virtually no limit to the span of tones available to your Deluxe Dimension Bass via its knurled chrome P Bass control knobs. The sonic possibilities afforded by these tone-shaping tools feature master volume, treble boost/cut, mid boost/cut and bass boost/cut control knobs to help you hone in on the precise bass sound you're looking for.
A Dimension 5-String Humbucking PickupCapturing your playing and projecting it through your Dimension's 18-volt preamp and active 3-band EQ system is a Dimension 5-String humbucker. This baby assures that your tone maintains a warm full-bodied sound from your melodic highs to your earth shaking lows -- all without any mud or overbearing brightness. Each note represents your playing with honest and pristine articulation.
