I have the version of time she has 44 years old (1962)
For the characteristics of this model will see the site of fender but basically it's really the vintage:
-The handle is large even for low
-The bridge is a classic (the same as the other fender)
There is a micro-type precision (on my version there is a Dimarzio United States 70 years)
One-tone and one volume
-Despite the size of the handle, the instrument shows enjoyable to play. You can easily spend his plans but need a little practice left hand anyway ...
-Then the balance is not very good it looks to the head, but I found that with a good strap (not nylon), although it is better off. The unit is light enough.
It is easy to adjust its
So, for all that rock, blues, reggae and other styles that sounds very fond of a round is killing. It can also leave a more acute, which is compatible with a little help from time to time pick.
Personal-I play on a Trace Elliot GP7 300W double with his body and is downright huge. I would love to test it on an ampeg for example ...
It's been six months that I and other members of my group (rock) prevent me from playing on another bass. For rock, for example it is difficult to find more complete than it is at the look because you have to admit (I in sunburst) it has the mouth, and also in sound is really big ( practice to establish the rhythm very heavy ...)
That I'm really happy with cons I warn about one thing: it's a vintage instrument and the design is as old so he has to make small concessions on matters of comfort or it moves!
