    I tried 3 models yesterday.

    2 were single pickup models
    Only about $750, so I guess not Made in the USA ?

    Played nice.

    Sound was NOT HAPPENING at all.
    A very weakened Music Man Stingray sound.
    No punch, no clarity.

    The 2 pickup model was a clunker.
    Didn't even bother 2 plug it in.

    0 out of 5 stars for me anyways.

    I personally DO NOT like ANY current Fender Bass, any model and definitely NOT for the outrageous and ridiculous pricing. For example a non correct period wise Geddy Lee Custom Shop bass costing MORE than an original (this has been discussed on other forums here, YES I know and CONCUR:D).

    Dollar for dollar the BEST bass Fender are making are the SQUIRE series.

    My opinion is based on the fact that I own and have played vintage and high end boutique basses for over 40 years.
    I personaly feel Fender has "lost it" and I just don't TRUST them any more ???? Way way too corporate ( greedy ).
    My 2 cents anyways :meh::meh:

    I played one MIA and one MIM and the MIM felt better though the MIA sounded better. I personally didn't like the feel of the neck (too thick) but that's typical P bass.

    I just got to play 2 of these at one of my local GCs. The first one was a Honeyburst Deluxe with the mids control ... a very nice bass compared to many I've held and heard. The second one was a used Charcoal Grey 'crafted in China' model that was absolutely one of the smoothest basses to play that I've ever touched ... for $500. I might have put a deposit on it if I didn't think the Wife would dispute the necessity of it (However I am considering the layaway plan to give me time to come up with a good explanation ;)

    I played a MIM a few months back and loved it. Sounded and played great. I almost bought it, but I quickly reminded myself that I was in the store to find a short scale...
