I ordered a new Fender Modern Player Dimension from Amazon when they were running the special for $293.21, and it arrived today. First impressions, I love it! I'm impressed with the fit and finish, the setup is almost perfect with a dead straight neck and low action. It may even be too low as I'm getting a little fret buzz. The intonation is slightly off, so I'll have to make some minor adjustments with the supplied allen wrenches. That in itself may raise the action slightly, enough to eliminate the fret buzz, but I'll wait a few days to allow it to settle. This is certainly a $600.00 bass, and a steal at just under $300.00, with free shipping. This is my first white bass, and I very much like the color, especially with the maple fret board. It balances very well on a strap, and weighs in at 9.5 pounds on the bathroom scale. Plugged in to my Ampeg Micro VR, it sounds great, not too far off from a Jazz, but with a sound all its own. Three of the five rotary switch positions rock, with the outside two sounding a bit thin. The only down side is the recessed output jack, which didn't allow me to use the angled jack on the cable. I'll post more impressions as I make the final adjustments to the setup and spend some playing time with it.
