I saw this at NAMM, and played it and decided I HAD to have one, especially for the Blues bands I am playing in. My buddy is a Fender Dealer and gave me a great price.
Just got it home last night and tested it with the factory strings (usually crappy). It has an enormous, thick, fat sound. It came with a great setup right from the factory. I can't wait to play it on a gig.
Although the neck is bigger and fatter than the tiny necks I like on my Peaveys, etc. it is extremely easy and fast to play.
The build quality is just amazing, it feels nearly as good in my hands as my '08 USA P. Good Job Fender!
32" Medium Scale - Better for my older hands, and the main reason I bought it.
Great feeling neck - Spec'd at 1.7" but it is smaller than that - around 1.6.
Humbucker at the neck for growly, fat sound.
Duncan J Pup at the bridge for highs and zing.
Smaller headstock for unique look and less neck dive.
Amazing build quality.
Heavy at 10.0 lbs.
I'll be changing the strings out today for a set of Sunbeams I ordered from www.basstringsonline.com
(Delivered the next day!) That should make the sound even richer.
Sorry I don't have the ability to record sound clips, but I think you should go check this one out.
