The Fender Standard Dimension Bass IV bass guitar is an awesome model that may have a simple design and setup, but produces a rich tonality that is full of complexity. Whether you're new to the bass, or are a seasoned pro who is looking for a model that is affordable and well equipped to handle life on the road, then this is the bass you're looking for.
The body has been crafted using lightweight alder, a tonally balanced tonewood that has been favoured by Fender for decades. Alder holds its own well, producing bouncy mids with a forceful low-end, but retains a fantastic sparkle and articulation in the higher frequencies. The body profile is designed to make it as comfortable to play as possible, with deep double-cutaways that enable easy access to the entire neck and fingerboard. The stylish black finish completes the sophisticated aesthetic, whilst a slender but highly resilient layer of gloss polyurethane upholds the paintwork exquisitely.
Fitted to the body is a responsive maple neck, shaped to the slender "C" shape profile, which is perfect for executing your playing technique deftly. Married to the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is shaped to a 9.5 inch radius to accommodate fast-playing styles. The smooth hand-rubbed oil neck finish gives it a resistance-free playing feel, allowing you to soar unimpeded.
The Dimension's sonic abilities may look quite simplistic at first, equipped with a single bridge humbucker and controlled using a master volume pot, and a master tone pot. However, the vast arsenal of sounds that can be extracted from this arrangement will amaze you. Whatever style of music you play, you'll find your perfect tone with ease.
If you're looking for a superior electric bass that is perfect for studio recording, and is rugged enough to cope with life on the road, then the Fender Standard Dimension Bass IV bass guitar is perfect. Combining an unfussy setup with sublime tonality, at a price that everyone can take advantage of, is something that Fender is known for, but even this time they've outdone themselves.
