Surprisingly positive impression

The playability and sound is very good. Even my wife says this bass sounds very good. I am playing it through a Genzler Magellan 350 head connected to a Fender Rumble 410 cabinet. I am very pleased and happy. I do not regret buying this bass. It will be my main bass for sure. No doubt about that.

The bridge was not intonated properly from the factory in Mexico. Luckily I know how to intonate a bass. I experienced my clip on tuner was not giving the right tuning information espesially when intonating the B-string. A pedal tuner showed me to be good enough for the job.

The gear ratio on the machine heads (20:1) could have been better. Especially the B-string machine head is very sensible when tuning and intonating the bridge. Sometimes in the future I will probably exchange the machine heads to the compatible Hipshot HB7 which have better tuning ratio (27:1). Higher gear ratio allows the machine head to rotate in smaller increments. This gives better tuning control when tuning and intonating, especially the B-string.

Do I personally recommend this bass? Definitely.
With a bit of setup there is nothing that can beat this bass in this price range.
This bass is the right ticket for the 5-string bass world!

Everyone makes a better Fender 5-string than Fender

The bass is heavy, I mean, it's as heavy as my Ibanez SR 6-string. The neck is not the most comfy one. This one came with neck issues, it needed a shim to be playable and it still has buzzing on the upper frets. Those are the bad parts. The good part is that it sounds good. Not like I would expect a Jazz bass to sound, but it sounds good. If you want that Jazz-y sound, I suggest you try some steel strings.

Der Bass spielt sich super. Sound und Verarbeitung sind top und ich bin super zufrieden mit dem Kauf. Wer einen fünf saitigen Bass sucht ist mit diesem auf der sicheren Seite und wird viel Spaß mit dem Instrument haben. Der Bass weist den typischen Fender Sound auf und ist sehr durchsetzungsfähig und kann durch verschiedene Settings komplett unterschiedliche Sounds annehmen, die ihn zu einem echten Allrounder machen.

Première 5 cordes pour ma part et agréablement surpris.
Polyvalent, de par ses 2 micros et son bouton de tonalité, l'instrument répond présent dans beaucoup de genres musicaux (rock, funk, fusion, jazz, afro cubain, etc). Le Si grave est relativement bien défini, aussi.
Seul petit bémol, un poc sur le vernis au dos du manche. Je ne sais pas si c'est arrivé lors du transport ou non, car le colis était blindé +++ (merci Thomann).
Satisfait de mon achat, donc.
