    When I was first thinking of moving to five string basses (and JUST before I discovered Laklands) I had this picture on the wall of my office:

    fenderdimensionv_zpsd1c442ce.

    It was there along with a 5 string Conklin and a RIC as basses "I want to own"....

    I know this is a four banger but there was also a five string version. I thought it looked petty cool....never got the chance to play one....ever....never saw one live.

    I see the "new incarnation" of this bass recently came out (which I do not like the looks of).....

    Why do I not see these "older ones" posted or discussed here?

    Were they not popular?

    Any one know if they were decent quality?

    Anyone know about what happened to them or own/owned one?

    I am curious about them....

    thx.

    Peace:

    Doug

    I've got one. It's Fender's version of Ibby's SR. Plays really easily, almost plays itself. It's my favorite player. I think it sounds solid. Weight-wise, not very heavy. Body is significantly smaller than a P. Neck pocket is shallow, fretboard sits fairly high over the body. When working the upper register, I tend to wedge my thumb under the E. Has about .58" gap between the strings and body with low neck action. Perfect for me. I'm trying to set all of my basses with that nice string/body gap.

    I like my Dimension quite a bit.
