I love this bass, just wish it were a tad lighter. I like to blend the P and J pickup tones, but it's nice to be able to twerk one over the other when slapping, picking, etc. Stays in tune really well, very rarely to actually have to tune during a set, and that's mostly after a lot of slap.
First of all, I've never been a Fender fan, and I just don't get why the hell people are so obsessed with the brand name on the headstock, but! This particular model (well, mine is a Japan non-export Dolphin Gray, but there's not a lot of difference apart from pickguard) is so damn good. The P/J configuration gives you a lot of settings, the slim neck, the light weight - everything is wery well balanced. Definitively a keeper!
This is my main 4-string bass. I've used it for everything from jazz to metal to pop-punk and have been able to get any sound I want out of it. Very gig-worthy and sounds fantastic. A little heavy so it's not necessarily the best choice for long gigs but still.
This bass is truly remarkable.
I bought it based on youtube videos and fender's videos, and I was blown away with how well crafted this piece is. It's been my main stage bass for three years running.
the tone is very focused; razor-sharp highs, super punchy mids and very controlled and focused lows. I love it.
I replaced the bridge (like we all do on Fenders) with a Babicz FCH4 bridge. Drove the mids home. Loads of sustain.
