Fender HM5

Recommended Posts

I just got this Fender HM5. Bought it online on the swedish version of Craigs list.
Can anyone tell me more about it?
I think it was made during 1988 to 1991 in Japan for the US market.

it has a five way switch, volume and TBX Tone.

That's an unusual one. I've often mused over building a 3 J pickup bass, be interesting to hear a demo of the 5 pickup positions if you ever get round to it.

I remember the Squier HM range from the early 90s.

I always thought that 'HM' stood for 'Heavy Metal', but according to this thread  https://www.talkbass.com/threads/fender-hm-bass-anyone-anyone.669678/ that may not be the case.

The Squier guitars were certainly aimed at young kids who wanted to play metal, all humbuckers, shiny finishes and pointy headstocks.
