A great precision!

GrahamG, 05.12.2013
To be fair I'm not especially a fan of Nate's although I do like Foo Fighters but I really liked the look of this bass in the new Fender line-up.I've been looking to get a precision and this seemed to be great value. It sounds great with the SD Quarterpounder, Badass bridge and the worn Candy Apple Red and lacquer finish has a cool retro look. Like the narrow neck too. You can get a USA made model for similar money but personally I'm not hung up on where they are made, it's the instrument that counts.I have had Jap and Mex made Fenders as well as USA models and have not seen any great differences.

Back to the Dawning !!

After 26 years I buy it again a Fender Precision !!
And 'this is why I have so called review !!
What can I say .. a return to say the least exciting !!
Let's talk about this Nate Mendel !!
The instrument is well built and aged effect is utterly believable !!
Contrary to many reviews or slightly positive comments on the finish, I would say that Fender has done a great job !!
The "defects" aesthetic "these are in my opinion more than enough, even on an instrument of almost 50 years !!
Beautiful matte effect !!
Everything is fully lined, type effect washed car with brushes !!
Several dents and seals are present on the body while one sign is present on the handle.
The battipetta has a front slot that allows you to enter any picks.
Only the keyboard is immaculate and is a beautiful rosewood, one of the most beautiful I've ever seen on an instrument from 1000 euro !!
Mechanical also, bridge, pickups and knobs are well managed in terms of aging !!
The low once shouldered is well balanced.
My specimen is particularly heavy 4420KG .. !!
The Body is convenient when approached in the chest and the neck is really thin and more than comfortable width !!
It 'very smooth because of a tremendous and finish !!
My copy has a perfect touch probe !!!!!!!
The MI and the SOL can drop to limit their bridge saddle without emitting any type of frying !!
They could fall further, but we are already all the way !!
'Definitely a safe level to maintain if you want to get that beautiful sound that only a Fender can give us !!
A lower action, as far as possible, not give away absolutely the same sound !!
The LA and the RE will be accordingly adjusted according to the radius 7,25 (perhaps through a dedicated tool).
It 'still a more than good action and I say this as possessor of low status and violin making changes !!
Both the bridges and the mechanical adjustments allow precise and appaionio undoubtedly well made !!
electronic minimalist but very effective !!
The pot. Tone gives different tonal shades !!
The sound is warm and round and every note is defined and fist rich !!
The signal is strong, more than a few of my more expensive low active, and best of all, it is very quiet even with the shades all open !!
Beware the dimmers as return loud noise, which might lead us to think that the instrument is in any way at fault !!
Problems could make us believe that there is a bad grounding of the instrument; these noises fade away, in very good part, touching the strings and knobs simultaneously !!
So if you just want a great sound and a lot of clean signal completely turn off the light dimmers !!
Also on the slap I was very impressed !!
And 'the opposite of my very first Fender P Japanese who sleppava with a sound elastic type !!
This growls almost like my Jazz Bass but with the typical sound of a Fender P !!
His case is not the best in terms of "large" protection, but it's fine if we avoid dropping or let him take blows !!
It does not smell unlike what I read on the net and is still well done !!
It does not take into impiedi when it is empty as too light !!
It has enough pockets !!
The instrument comes with a plate stops with double FF handle for those who love the foo fighters (I do not even know them !!) and with various cards !!
Only a brugolina to adjust the height of the bridge saddles.
Only negative is the truss !!
You have to remove the handle to adjust the curvature or you only do damage !!
I will now give a good judgment Thomann who performed at no additional cost of a really nice tool setup !!
Fast shipping (3 days) and wrapping bumbling courier proof !!

What else to say .. Great nice tool and congratulations to Thomann !!
