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!
