A Whole New DimensionThe Dimension bass is new territory for Fender, who crafted the original body shape out of ash for a bass on the lighter side with plenty of resonance. Asymmetry is a theme throughout, with the body's slight tilt giving it a fairly vintage look.
The Dimension's asymmetrical neck heel makes way for players who like to reach all the way up the neck, and the body contour makes a comfortable groove for standing bassists. A five-bolt neck plate also makes the most of being off-center, providing a more stable neck joint.
Neck Sculpted for ComfortWhile playing an asymmetrical neck may sound like a arduous chore, the maple neck of the Fender Dimension breaks symmetry rules with a compound-radius rosewood fretboard. This design flattens out the fretboard toward the higher end for easy lead playing, while maintaining a more rounded profile at the lower half -- just where you'd want it when playing rhythm. The neck's overall profile is a "C" shape, popular with modern players who want to reach across as much of the neck as possible.
Explore the Sonic FrontierThough outfitted with a single pickup in the bridge pickup, the Dimension makes the most of its electronics to offer a huge range of sounds. That pickup -- a Fender Dimension humbucker -- gives off punchy, authoritative tone that comes alive when overdriven.
The pickup runs into an 18-volt onboard preamp offering a three band EQ with bass, mid, and treble bass/cut and master volume.
