You are buying this bass for the sound!

I had been playing a $400 Ibanez SR370E SR Standard for the past 2 years (also purchased from honeychrome.net), so that"s what I"m comparing this Fender to. Immediately the clarity, beefiness, "roundness" and nuances in the sound of this Fender jumped out at me. Even when playing it without being plugged in I can hear the difference! How is that possible? I guess the maple fretboard. By comparison the Ibanez sounds muffled, even after putting new strings on it. I will certainly say that the Ibanez is more comfortable to play, and also I don"t think that"s just me being used to playing it for 2 years. One point that annoys me about this Fender is the screw at the optimal finish of the pickup. That will certainly take some acquiring provided to. I was disappointed in the fact that this Fender arrived via the intonation of all 4 strings being off by about 2 Hz. How did it make it past the factory and also this 55 allude inspection? Intonation was checked off on the inspection card but obviously nobody compared the 12th fret to open up string tuning with a tuner. Intocountry is among THE a lot of crucial things. At first I assumed that I got a lemon yet fortunately all appears to be well currently that I spent some time acquiring the intocountry adjusted. I will say that bereason this bass has actually so much clarity, even the ever before so slightly out of tune notes will certainly stick out. It doesn"t take yet a small bit of playing before a string moves slightly along the nut. Most human being probably wouldn"t notification. That"s coming from someone through a VERY discriminating ear for studio recording. Maybe Fender need to think about a neck locking mechanism favor some guitars have?
