    Just picked this up

    [​IMG]

    For the equivalent of $83 (£50)


    It's..

    96 Squier Body
    Mighty Mite Precision Neck
    EMG Active Electronics


    :)

    Here's a soundclip for those inclined that way... Bass straight in to my focusrite interface.. no effects or post processing straight signal.. various playing styles included.. they're all fairly mediocre but it sounds nice!

    Looks and sounds fantastic! I'm so jealous. I paid almost $1,000 for that look and sound.

    I'm really chuffed with it!

    been fiddling around with the action more getting it just right... also adjusted the pickup height as they were really low and according the the EMG manual they should be much closer...

    the sound is much improved.. might sort another recording later if I can bring my self to do it :)

    I haven't had the Tanglewood for ages.. it was a beginner model so this wipes the floor with it I think personally :)
