UTILIZATION

This is the bass I always wanted Fender to make. The original Tele bass was cool, but very one dimensional with one single coil pickup. Later updates to the style added a big humbucker in the neck, which was a slight improvement, yet only allowed for one dark tone. This bass has a second humbucker near the bridge, and it makes a world of differece. With these pickups, high quality tuners and bridge, and a great finish, one can tell right away that Fender means business on this axe. The playability is a lot like an older 70s P-bass, yet with a bit thinner neck. The fretwork on this particular neck is very nice, as well.

SOUNDS

These two humbuckers are amazing! From playing around with it, I found that I could get all sorts of good tones out of this bas, from funky, to soulful Motown, to modern rock, sludge, doom, metal, country, jazz.... anything, really! The tones from this bass are monstrously powerful - you certainly FEEL every note, and the audience would too. This is really a bass with a lot of versatility to its sound, and it provides for an inspiring (and entertaining) playing session.

OVERALL OPINION

This is one of my favorite basses I've ever played. I love the style of the design, and the playing action on the neck really helps me play this bass with ease with any technique. The dual humbuckers has been standard fare on guitars for the past 50 years, but never caught on in the bass world for some inexplicable reason. Here it seems quite natural, and it allows for a huge range of great sounds. Highly recommended.
