    Fender Telecaster Bass [1971-1979]Published on 10/26/11 at 16:28
    The Fender Telecaster Bass (Vintage) is an American made electric bass, sharing the same name as the ever popular Fender Telecaster guitar. As far as I can tell, the comparisons end there, unless they share similar electronics as well but I don't think they do. It's got a single pick up with a tone and volume knob to control it.

    UTILIZATION

    The playability of the Fender Telecaster Bass is extremely high as it's a fun instrument to play with great action and overall feel. The bass feels great in your hands while still maintaining a strong and sturdy action. It's great for playing mid range bass licks as well, both in sound and feel.

    UTILIZATION

    The playability of the Fender Telecaster Bass is extremely high as it's a fun instrument to play with great action and overall feel. The bass feels great in your hands while still maintaining a strong and sturdy action. It's great for playing mid range bass licks as well, both in sound and feel. It's not hard to get a good sound from this bass, if you can play well of course, but if you don't like it's sound for whatever reason, the single pick up will limit you.

    SOUNDS

    I have to say that I'm in love with the sound of the Fender Telecaster Bass. It's a really woody sound that is perfect for tight bass lines. It's awesome for McCartney style bass parts as well as deeper sounds, so to say the least it's very versatile. It sounds great just as a DI but also will sound good through a variety of amps, including even guitar amps as I've used it with a Fender Deluxe Reverb in the studio and it sounded quite good for the sound we were going for. It's more versatile than you would think for a bass with just a single pick up - the tone knob can do a lot.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The Fender Telecaster Bass is a great bass for professional bassists or anyone looking for a versatile, top of the line vintage bass. A lot of people don't know about the Telecaster Bass, but for hardcore bass gear heads, this is very well regarded. I don't know what it would cost you to pick one up, and keep in mind that different basses are always going to vary even if they're the same model. Still, any Tele Bass that you come across is worthy of inspection!

    Low amricaine. 21 frets. Manufactured in the U.S. for mine. Date of 72 or 73. Body:? I do not know and handle mapple ... the: Mechanical: Fender Classic Fender pickups LMIS ... PSE against her by her weight! It's not a bass queer! Must be as sturdy Basseux!

    The finish is exceptional. Beautiful, simple, effective (a yes !!!). As "heavy" ...

    UTILIZATION

    Sleeves: a trick of "lumberjack"! It's not very late ... Must love Me but I have found excellent. Let's say it's like the Telecaster guitar, very manly, raw, rock anything!
    CASC is acute enough to ais.
    The ergonomics are excellent…

    The ergonomics are excellent I think the weight is but we know that we have a true low between the legs, was laughing at all!

    The sound: see more ... But the image of the bass heavy, good rock ...

    SOUNDS

    Me I play rock, funk, blues ... So for that nickel! It's a bass that is in "serious" ct sonority. It has beautiful bass, superb is the word! We hear all really Frequencies bass, medium rather presents are also ... For acute: forget ... Finally APRS with good qualisation, everything can get!
    Slappeurs: go your way, you're in the right sound "low" good fats ... It's destiny to be a fan of vintage rock, blues, soul ... Short music that ncessitent bass playing at the bottom ...
    What I bluff: the output level! Incredible! never seen a. .. It beats all active basses on the market I am sr! To give you an idea: take your bass sound current and multiply by 5! Bluffing ... As soon as you plug it, sends a timber as they say ... RPET I play in a small 65 w. Well when I plugged I plugged in "low" (because there is another cave high) because the level of output was too powerful for the "high" ... And during the RPET, I played 3 / 10 volume of local APRS windows shook! This means ...

    I put 10 because it's a crazy thing this sound: WOOOOOHHHHH I did!
