One of the criticisms of Fender and other production-grade companies is the lack of consistency and high standards from bass to bass. In turn, that is routinely one of the things for which basses from Sadowsky, Nash, Valenti, etc. are praised. So, not having experience with any of these instruments (but strongly considering acquiring one), how do the Fender Custom Shop basses compare to the "Fender on steroids" basses put out by the other companies mentioned (and any other maker that I may have omitted)? Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
