A Bassist's Best Buy

Fender's Modern Player Dimension Bass offers a great solution for a bassist on a budget. Whether you're a first-time buyer looking for a genuine Fender instrument or you're an experienced player looking to add to your bass arsenal, the Modern Player Dimension Bass offers a truly modern design that is versatile enough to add character to nearly any style of music.

One Triplebucker, 5 Pickup Combinations

The Modern Player Dimension Bass offers a refreshingly rich tonal range for a guitar with only a volume knob and a 5-way rotary selector. That's because the combination of a single triple-coil rail pickup with a five-way pickup selector switch allows for numerous tonal combinations in and of itself. The five pickup combinations are front coil, front and middle coils, all three coils, middle and rear coils, and the rear coil by itself. So just to recap: you get two distinct single-coil, two distinct double-coil, and one triple-coil pickup configuration all on the same axe!

- Fender Modern Player series electric bass guitar

5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Pleasantly surprised given the cost of the bass"
Overall: I bought this bass as backup bass to use because my regular C.F. Martin acoustic bass is at the Martin factory getting a neck reset. I wanted something fun to fool around with while my Martin was in thew shop - so this was purchased as something different to play on for a month or two. But the funny thing was it turned out to be a very likable and very easy to play bass that I really enjoy! The newly designed pickup is fantastic! Great selection of tones!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "As a first Bass...."
Overall: Big kudos to zZounds yet again for providing in-house financing. They have provided me with an excellent Gibson SG Special 6 string, and now this Fender bass guitar. I am a novice guitar player and a beginner on bass. The price-for-what-you-get is outstanding with this one, plus the candy apple finish is superb. The fretboard, neck, & body are all the right woods, plus I like the dot inlays. They seem to be less distracting than the larger trapezoids to learn finger placement with. The Bass is a bit heavy, which says good things about the woods, but the balance is really good when you play it. It does not nose dive like some of my 6 string guitars do. As to the sound, the triplebucker pickup has 5 preselects for tone control, compared to more expensive equipment with separate pickups. So far, there is a small limiting factor with this design, which may not be to every players's preference. However, as a non-pro and Bass beginner, this guitar suits me perfectly in every way that I had hoped it would. By comparison, an American Fender carries a substantially higher purchase price, with a greater range of sound control, but at this stage it would have been overkill for me, gear-wise, to validate a more expensive purchase. It helps too that I have a quality bass amplifier to work with this, because a lame amp can't make any guitar sound good. Conclusion: I am very happy with this instrument and with zZounds yet again.
Style of Music: Older and newer metal, rock
