    That is a good looking bass - I just keep wanting to see a 2x2 headstock of something that looks more like a Gibson. ;)

    Hey all - I’m going to ask that anybody looking to join the club send me a PM going forward.

    It’s becoming a bit of a chore to keep up with requests in the thread, and I inevitably miss folks when I’m busy and not able to check all the time, but I want to make sure everybody gets s number!

    Anybody currently waiting also send me a PM :). Thanks!

    I have an American dlx Dimension HH V. It's a nice addition to my Fender family.

    I see most people
    Seem to go for the HH

    I feel like I am missing something by not having the extra pick up.

    The bridge pickup in the HH basses isn't in the same sweet spot that the pickup is in on the single.

    When I have time, I'll probably whip out my router and add a jazz pickup in the neck position on mine.

    Anyone know the reasoning why Fender decided to put the HH bridge pickup in a different position? Would have assumed they would be in the same place for the H and HH

    They just want you to buy both models.

    On the single pickup version, it's closer to the hallowed ground that is the P-bass pickup location. Not room to do that on the HH versions.

    Can any of you Dimension fans tell me if a 2008 American Jazz Deluxe neck (22-fret w/5-screw mount) will fit any of the Dimension Bass bodies? From what I can see in pics online, it looks like the neck might be compatible with the Squier Deluxe Dimension Bass body or the American Deluxe Dimension Bass IV body, but I can't come up with a clear answer.
    Thanks in advance for any advice!

    It also looks like the Fender Modern Player Dimension Bass body might work...

    *Edited to ad pics*
    Here is a pic of the neck and one of the bolt-hole pattern:

    I can't help you other than to compare what I have on hand, which is one squier affinity jazz neck and a mim dimension. So, dunno if it's helpful at all. 20190409_210824.
    that's with the nuts aligned, and this second photo is to compare contours at the heals. 20190409_210926.

    Seems strange, that The Stratosphere has dozens and dozens of Dimension bodies, and not a pickup to be had anywhere.

    Picked this up today used on a trade for my Fender Player Jazz. As you can see it has not been used AT ALL.
    Terrific bass.

    Good deal. Nice case too.

  18. I have the same Squier, and oddly I've been considering some changes seeing as it doesn't get much play these days - both BEAD and flats/pressurewounds were things I've been considering!

    Would you mind sharing some of your thoughts on the bass set up this way?
  19. Can anyone confirm whether or not the American Deluxe 5 string was offered in a natural/white guard/rosewood combo as stock? Single humbucker active model. Looking at buying used, but I only recall natural w/ maple.

    I’ve got the Squier Deluxe and looking to add the American Deluxe HH soon!
