    I like the white one without the stripes. Wonder how they sound like with those pickups.

    Yeah, I'm curious and a maybe a little skeptical on the pickup. I think I like the idea tho, short scale with that pickup in the middle, not up on the neck. Look forward to trying this and the new AVRI line.

    Edit- after watching the video I def want to try one.

    I'm bouncing back between TB and OSG, what AVRI line are you talking about?

    Just checked out the video. I prefer the Mustangs with Single Split-Coil Pickup.

    I love the idea--looks totally badass! At the very least would certainly be a great thumpin' mud machine:)

    So is this a split single coil (a la p-base) in a case or a true humbucker, I wonder?

    I'd like to A-B test it against an MIJ Mustang with its split-coil pup. I see that the fretboard radius is 9 1/2" on the new PS Mustang and 7 1/2" on the MIJ. I wonder if the neck front-to-back thickness is different as well. I really like the neck on my defretted MIJ.

    Best regards,
    Lou

    I had one of the originals as a kid. Of course, different pickups. Sure wish I had kept it. Had the same stripe.

    The Mustang design never appealed to me, until this one.

    Love the look and the sound but WOW @ that price...$1,079 MSRP...probably 7-800 street. That's pretty pricey.

    Looks pretty sweet and sounds good in the video. I think it is the same pickup from the Modern Player Telecaster Bass. Would be cool to try one out.

    Ya think? I think it's decent for what it is. Its not JUST a small scale/less tonally versatile version of p bass with that WRHB.

    I like the sunburst finish. At that price I assume that it's MIA.
