"Just My Opinion"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Love it! Fender makes this quality instrument affordable by not having to pay its techs to take more time to do final detailed set ups such as adjusting bridge heights, tunings, or sometimes minor neck adjustments that we can do ourselves in ten or fifteen minutes once we have the product in our hands, which in turn saves the client several hundred dollars per guitar and gets this fine instrument into our possession. I'd say that's pretty cool. Once set up you never have to do anything else to it except play it, can't beat that with a stick. As for tone, balance and playability, one really can't ask for a more exemplary example than a Fender American bass or lead guitar, they just don't come any better no matter what brand or price range they're in, which is why 99 out of 100 bass players use Fender basses and 60% of lead guitarists use Fender lead guitars. They're pricey, but so is everything else that's worth having in this life including a good wife.Well that's about all I have to say, except to further say that you can rely on this bass to carry you through any kind of performance regardless of the pressure or genre, and you never have to worry about babying it. Can't speak on manufacturer support though.
