    Default Cool new Modern Player Fender - Dimension bass

    This one has been getting very mixed reviews on its looks over on Talkbass.

    I rather like it, but won't be buying one because I'm really set for basses.

    The triple-bucker seems a copy from the Ibanez ATK. However, the Fender has a much thinner neck than the ATK which I'd prefer.

    I think it's a pretty nifty idea all around.

    I really like that bass and the Triplebucker in general. My Marauder has the Triplebucker and I like all of the settings. I think the Triplebucker is a great pickup.

    I also think that the Musicman-style truss rod wheel is pretty neat.

    That's pretty cool. I don't like skinny necks, but it seems neat. Is there any tone adjustment or is it just volume and the pickup selector? The design reminds me of something...maybe a Les Paul Jr.?

    Default Cool new Modern Player Fender - Dimension bass

    Without a word of a lie, this is the first bass I've seen that got me thinking: "Damn, I should learn to play bass!"

    Gorgeous and smooth. Modern but classic. All-round excellent.

    You heard it first, folks--my first case of bass GAS!

    Being in the MIC Modern Player series, I think they are priced fairly low. That should help with your GAS!

    Have you played on, NWB? I'm curious about your impressions of them.

    GDamn! How cool is that 5-position pickup selector knob?

    I think the Triplebucker is a welcome addition. Five positions with zero clutter. The tonal palette may not be that broad, quite subtle really, but I do prefer the offset "Jr." vibe you get with that single pup and pickguard combo.

    If this came in copper, I'd be splashing my Visa around. Picture copper metallic with that black pickguard and black flames swirling about.

    Best excuse to take bass lessons ever!

    Eric, I haven't even seen one in the stores yet. While I think it's a pretty cool looking bass and I like the pickup configuration, I doubt that I'll even try one out since I'm content with what I have.

    Also coming down the pike are bunch of new Squier Vintage Modified basses including a Cabronita, 5-string P-bass, new colors of 5-string jazz, and a P/J.
