General What is your overall opinion of this product? Have loved Ps for years and always wanted a 5 string version Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? American Fenders have gotten very expensive over the years but, the quality is still there. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? The fifth string is tight and full sounding. I have another bass with SD Vintage pups and this thing has more mid punch to it. There is a reason why it is better to leave the factory pickups in these top of the line basses. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? It feels great. The neck is an 1/8" wider at the nut compared to my Music Man 5 but, it is a little better for slapping because of this. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Like I said the pups are perfect and give that classic P mid punch that is so cool. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? You can order any color as long as it is black. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? What is the saying "Expensive but, worth it" Playability How was the action out of the box? It was a little high but, I lowered it a little and am good to go.
