What a Guitar!

General What is your overall opinion of this product? Overall I think this thing is a monster. Only had it 48 hours, but I can sense the sonic possibilities! The pickups are hot and have tons of bass. I'm not a big fan of the humbucker by itself, but mixed with the middle is so far my favorite combo. She's heavy, but well balanced. The neck is comfortable and fast. I find it hard to believe that Fender did a setup before shipping this out. I fully expect to set up a guitar I order online, but this thing was unplayable right out of the box. The low E was flopping all over the place and is too light a gauge to be at pitch and stable. I've ordered a set of thicker flat wounds and am relativity certain it will remedy it. The bridge is impossible to intonate stock. Fortunately it is easy to flip it 180 degrees for enough space to intonate accurately. Bad design by Fender here, at this price point I shouldn't have to do this. All in all a terrific guitar!! Comes with a gig bag, which I was not expecting.

What is your overall opinion of this product? Been wanting one of these for a long time. Didn't want an ironing board for a 6 string bass. This is just what I want. Out of the box however, I had to make some adjustments to her (truss rod to take the severe bow out of the neck and heavier strings on the top). All in all I have been very, very happy with her. Fender should address the issues we consumers have about the setups and shipping as afore mentioned by other buyers of this guitar...
Very Cool Instrument!

Your general opinion of this product. I think it's really cool that this hard to find niche instrument is out for under $1000. Usually Bass VI reissues are very expensive and never made in USA unless it's CS and $4000 or so. This is great. Hopefully they make a XII next!
