Very good for a fender!

Fender Roscoe Beck Bass VPublished on 03/18/12 at 04:38
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
US manufacturing, more robust easel on normal models, handle 22 frets, two jazz double splitables in simple jazz series and parallle, Volume, Tone inverter (very appropriate I think ... ) .dropoff window All in liabilities.
Simple and effective. From memory, the handle is maple with paoferro key.

USE

The handle is VERY wide for a 5 string, the gap between the strings is the same as the 4-string models. That's what made me QWho Sparer me regret this super bass.
Otherwise, good ergonomics, relatively lightweight for a 5 string, good access to acute, handle fine enough, despite its width.
The sound is good, it's plug-and-play.

SONORITS

SONORITS

Fits all styles.
At this time, I was rock '70s, was going great. I think she must ensure jazz, funk, blues (yes, even when Roscoe Beck! ^^).
It's a great jazz-bass sound with a sound palette Largie and very simple contrles!
I was playing with a Warwick amp CL, which was very good to work with.

NOTICE GLOBAL

I used for 1 year and up from the width of the handle, I found great, but my little fingers could not endure for long. Too bad ...
What I loved most was its versatility, simplicity of its rglages, its sound palette.
What I liked the month was his too wide neck 5 string. I will have to take a 4 ...
For cons, I found it a bit chre ...
And then I discovered warwick, I fell hitch, so I will not repeat that choice, but it remains the best fender I had, I ralise after stroke (compare the Southwestern, std us, us deluxe ...).

very disappointed

Fender Roscoe Beck Bass VPublished on 06/20/14 at 02:09
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Made in USA, 2 humbuckers and split a selector, volume and tone

on paper, this is the perfect bass for me: simple, versatile and quality

UTILIZATION

wide but very practical handle
fender classic form: nothing to say
after 15 minutes, I no longer shoulder: I overlooked this detail by trying to store: it weighs two dead donkeys!
small split swiches are not very practical to handle, it is best to choose the defined positions and stick to not fiddle on stage. As against, very close tone knob, can actuate the turning unintentionally

SOUNDS

SOUNDS

Verily disappointed with the sound palette. certainly can be configured as desired, but I finally found two usable config: a fat (full) and ground (full split bridge + neck) other sound really small arms and the gain difference is unacceptable available.
Another HUGE problem: it buzzes in all directions: Amazing for Hambuckers
I check the masses: everything is OK

OVERALL OPINION

I returned to the store after four days and took a sting ray 5 instead: less versatile but more reliable for my taste

I think the versatility announced does not keep its promises, shabby finish (they do not test their products output string?) + pots with the game, it's really cheap for the price paid.

I do not recommend it, or it must test it better than I did before buying it (weight, buzz, finishes) to find a good

US-made, Easel more robust than normal models, 22 fret neck, two double jazz, jazz splitables in simple series and parallel, volume, tone, inverter (I find very relevant ...). While the liabilities.
Simple and effective. Memory, the neck is maple with key paoferro.

UTILIZATION

The neck is VERY large for a 5 string, the gap between the strings is the same as the 4 string models. That's what made me QWho separate, regretfully, this super low.
Otherwise, good ergonomics, relatively light for a 5 string, good access to acute, late enough round, despite its width.
The sound is good, it's plug and play.

At that time, I was'' 70 Rock, it was going great. I think she must ensure in jazz, funk, blues (yes, Roscoe Beck anyway ^ ^).
This is a great jazz bass sound with a wider sound palette and controls very simple!
I was playing with an amp CL Warwick, who was good at her work with.

OVERALL OPINION

I used it for 1 year, and apart from the width of the neck, I found it great, but my little fingers could not stand it much longer. Too bad ...
What I liked most was its versatility, the simplicity of its settings, its sonic palette.
What I liked the month was too broad in its neck 5 string. I have had to make a 4 ...
For cons, I found a cheap ...
And then I discovered warwick, I came a hitch, so I will not repeat that choice, but it remains the best Fender I've had, I realize after the fact (compared to mex, us std, deluxe us. ..).

Fender jazz bass 5 string type
Pickups can be single or double splitter coil and humbucking that make her real personality.

UTILIZATION

Very nice to play a little heavy still, the beast is balanced.
Question's you can really have fun is at ease in all the sounds were the sound and the sound slap Fender Marcus Miller. For my part I lowered the string action.

SOUNDS

Very oriented jazz and blues, it allows itself to think outside the box without problems even if I never pushed in this direction (distortion and other devastating effects).
the sound is clean and it's own extensive changes thanks to the switch humbuckers very well made.

I use this bass for 7 years I am fully satisfied and I always got the sounds I wanted it very versatile. it is an investment that I do not regret it.
