Great craftsmanship and playability. The necks on the Fender guitars have been outstanding since 2008-ish. The neck on my 2010 "P" is slick and quick and the neck on this is equally amazing. Wood on the three piece body is tight grained and matched exceptionally well. Looks like one piece. Fingerboard is beautiful. Intonation and action were spot-on out of the box. Fender's upgrade to the custom shop p-ups is a nice plus. Sweet tone. Thanks to Mark Bruhn for his exceptional service and assistance (as always) in the purchase of this fine bass.
