UTILIZATION

I feared a little polish, satin gloss accustomed to;
But I must say that the feel is nice. I'm used to the radius 241 mm, I actually a fretless bass Aria Pro II with the same radius.
My fingers do not need time to adjust when I switch from one to another.
Ergonomics? Is precision. There is nothing to add, we like it or not.


SOUNDS

Fender is the sound For the type of music I play is very good.
Rock, country, stroll. I like the sound "Roger Waters" I'm so used.
I use it with a Fender Rumble 100 Combo.
I just need compression to improve the sound, and it should.
The tone control is quite effective and faithful to what the builder wrote:
"Rolls Off Highs Without Adding Bass


OVERALL OPINION

Before the purchase, I played on many models.
My first bass was a Fender Precision Bass Ryan imitation,
I also played on a Rickenbacker, a Fender Precision 70s (hence perhaps my choice.), Washburn, Ibanez and my students: Squier (whose little Bronco), Storm.
By choosing the Sunburn I wanted to reconnect with my past (nostalgia, when you hold us!)
It comes with a bag deluxe, handy when one must take the train, but for a tour, nothing beats good old hard case.
It is far from being a model at a discount. The finish is neat. Over time, we'll see if the varnish is not too late fragile. But when you're careful it can take as long as others.
I would do if this election? A few months ago I wrote that I would have preferred a standard type years 61's. But in practice, I have no regrets. It is a good model that has nothing to envy her sisters more expensive.
