General What is your overall opinion of this product? 100% Satisfaction! If you want "Vintage Vibe", you found it!! Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Thee best quality in the feel of the neck. (Big fat, true 50's style) The hardware is clean, simple, and durable for the road ready musician. I play country, classic and pop rock, adult contemporary, blues and bluegrass music. Being straightforward, it does what I need, and it cuts thru the mix. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? Yes! That 50's vibe, Fender original, Precision Bass is hard to mistake. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Chunky and smooth. Access is simple. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Bright and snappy, hot pick-up! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The paint is beautiful and flawless. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Definitely! I would go against anything in this price range + more! Playability How was the action out of the box? No adjustments necessary, dead on!
This is not your mom's bass!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Fender puts out a great product, we all should be able to agree on that, even if you would rather play a Gibson. Again, for the price...it is a good deal on quality. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The best feature is the neck. It is not the greatest of all time, but it plays well above it's price tag. Clean and easy is the way I would describe it. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? This is another area, were bass players tend to "fudge around" a little. I left it "as is", just did not seem to need anything, of course you are not going to be playing any Stanley Clark tunes on here, this a working bass, not a show off bass. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? This is the one area that I was most disappointed in. We have all seen Sting's bass...right? Well this looks nothing like his bass, nor does it have any of the "feel" of his bass. Look...I know that his bass is the "real thing"...some 50's special found on the front pouch, of some old grandmother, who had not touched it since her son died and did not come home from Vietnam and she just wants it out of her house and she took $20 bucks for it...hahahaha, we all know the story. But all Fender would have to have done, is put a sandblaster to the body for 2 sec's and it would have look at least something like the real thing...I know, because that is what I did and the bass looks GREAT!
