    My favorite local shop has one of these listed, I'm gonna go try it out tonight (assuming it's still there). Anyone have any experience with one? I searched the forums and only found mentions of folks that owned one, there wasn't any info on their features and benefits or negative feedback.

    It's an alder body with maple neck and fretboard, with 'dual Modern Player Wide Range humbucking Precision Bass® pickups'.

    It is a serious kick ass bass those two humbuckers are super powerful. Well made for the price. In the end I sent mine back because of finish issues with the body and I have a '79 Tele, really didn't need another.

    I love Tele basses. But if I were buying one in that style, I would probably go with (and thankfully my lovely missus bought it for me for x-mas) the Cabronita bass.

    Tele bass style slab body with a killer Fidelitron pickup. I love the sound of that pickup slightly overdriven. Sir-crunch-a-lot!

    I am personally not a fan of those pickups. If you want some treble and definition in your sound, the single-coil or split-coil Precision pickups are better. If that is your preference, consider a '51 Reissue or a Squier Classic Vibe 50's Precision.
