I have always been looking for a bass with a deep dark low sound, a comfortable neck and oodles of style. I bought the ESP f155dx.Bought the Arctic White with Rosewood. Its a Fender Precision for gods sake! Added Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounders and a awesome II Bridge, and this turns into an out and out monster!


I had to special order it because the store didnt have it in stock. So it finally came and I pulled it out of the box hoping to play it. But the bass was literally unplayable the setup was so bad. The action was so low that the strings were dead the whole way up the fret board. Now I doubt climate change could affect the bass that much. But after a good setup the bass is awesome. Plays great, sounds great, and looks awesome. What else can you ask for? Besides better quality control. The guy who setup the bass said he's never seen a guitar or bass so bad right out of the box, and that upset me a lot.


Sounds Amazing!


Other than looking at the head stock, I'm not sure how to tell as to whether this is the Mexican made Fender or not... The Mexican Fender Precision I've experienced has Some of the best sounding pickups I've heard; suitable for recording with almost no EQ at all, which is unusual for stock pickups. Playability of the neck and fret intonation are excellent. Overall, this instruments offers a wonderful sounding combination of pickups and choice of wood. Though some versions of the Fender Precision may have more robust hardware, the tonal color along with excellent playability make this bass a great axe. I don't know how much of these qualities are up to chance, whether all recent Mexican Precisions are up to these standards, but it's definitely worth a try! Enjoy
