Fender Dimension basses now take their place among Fender’s greatest bass designs as the modern pinnacle of bass style, power, and performance.

The company that originated the electric bass now brings you a brand new chapter in the 50-year history of the instrument. The American Deluxe Dimension Bass features an elegantly original body style that exudes both classic and progressive style. The double-cutaway body features the trademark Fender offset waist and sports a comfortable asymmetrical neck heel.  The maple neck of the American Deluxe Dimension Bass IV HH is carved into a comfortable asymmetrical "C"-shaped profile and features Posiflex graphite neck support rods, a convenient heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel, smooth hand-rubbed oil finish and five-bolt neck plate. The compound-radius (9.5"-14") maple or rosewood fingerboard has 21 medium-jumbo frets and a bone nut, while the headstock bears a gloss finish and Stealth "A" string retainer.

The dual Dimension humbucking pickups are both powerful and nuanced, and the 18-volt onboard preamp, three-band active EQ (center-detented treble, mid and bass boost/cut) and master volume deliver remarkable tonal versatility with any degree of muscle and finesse. The instrument’s sonic capabilities are unmatched.Other premium features include a three-ply black pickguard, knurled chrome control knobs, Fender Hi-Mass bridge, vintage-style tuners with tapered shafts, locking strap buttons, side-mounted oval output jack and rear-mounted battery compartment. A hardshell case, cable, strap, and straplocks are included.

Comments about Fender American Deluxe Dimension Bass IV HH:

First of all, I am and old school player, and have swore the fender company has not made a decent bass guitar since Leo left for music man. This bass says to me" they finally did something right". I was in the market for a music man sabre. And this bass changed my mind. Great overall gear

      Comments about Fender American Deluxe Dimension Bass IV HH:

      This was my second bass, and my second Fender. My first is a Fender Aerodyne a 4 string passive. I started shopping for an active bass and looked at all the ones in the showroom -- there are some nice ones from Ibanez and Warwick with active electronics and humbuckers. They just didn't blow me away ... until the Dimension came out. Here's my 2 cents:
      The build quality and finish are excellent. The cayenne red is even, showing grain and has a nice poly coat. The fret board is a standard medium brown with pearl circles. It weighs about 8 and 1/2 and the balance is good. The cosmetics may get you to look but the sound will hook you. With both humbuckers on, the sound is way out in front. One thing I didn't expect -- a very experienced bass player used it for a gig so I could listen to it and the bass punch stays strong all the way up the fretboard. Unlike my passive Fender Jazz, at the 9th and 12th frets, the Dimension still booms. The 5 way selector gives you neck only, bridge only, both pups, inner coils and outer coils -- if you want a more "woody" sound use the front, more Jaco use the bridge. Treble, midrange and bass controls let you dial in more. Overall, really happy with this one.
