I'm glad to see that that pickup getting used.
thumbs up thanks again, will keep you posted when I get around to using the other parts!

Going back to the Squier classic vibe, I checked yesterday hoping there might be some sort of Black Friday/Cyber Monday deal and found the date got pushed back to March 2020

March?

Jesus christ


I'm still waiting for the tenor tele to even show up on a website.

I wanted one to take in my bag to ALBQ but looks like that ain't happening

It looks like the price of the Squier has been quietly raised to $399. Still not in stock. My excitement for this has gone from impulse preorder, to I’ll buy one once they’re actually in stores, to maybe buying one used if the right deal pops up.

The green ones are in stock now at Sweetwater and Guitar Center. There's one available on Reverb for $349 brand new.

I need a new bass and might just go for it... stay tuned!

I'm just a bit obsessed with natural finish guitars lately. Reckon I'm gonna end up with a house full of various cheeseboard looking Fenders.

White 3 ply pickguard and white pickup covers would make a bass that I could just sit, look and jerk off for hours at

LOL I bit the bullet on the Torino Red Bronco Bass instead. Should be here Monday. Have gigs the following Saturday and Wednesday. Dare I play out with the stock pup or stick with my McCartney thing?

Also, I got my daughter a Torino Red Mini Strat for Christmas, which is actually a great guitar (except for the fact that the 22.75" scale makes my wrist cramp). So whilst Fred builds an army of classy natural guitars, we're going a bit more flashy here at my house...

For those who want a Fender PJ mustang bass, Best Buy Canada has the sonic blue model for $575 Canadian dollars.

That's about $434 US dollars, or $35 more than the Squier Mustang Bass.

I have no idea if Best Buy Canada ships to other countries though, so this might only be available to Canadians.

Here's the LANK

The stock pickup isn't terrible, but with just one strat sized pickup it's easy enough to just drop a cool/hot rails pickup in it. Did you buy new or used?

I don't think I could ever justify selling my Bronco bass, I'd only get what I paid for it (about $75), and it definitely has more in value to me.
