    I'm kinda liking that idea.

    I hesitate to call it a "new" idea from Fender/Squier but it's nice to see them try something other than the continuation of the P or J mold. Of the two of these models I would be most interested in the two pick up version simply because of tonal variety. Still there is something appealing about the single pick up version for it's 1-2-3 go kind of mindset. Just get up and play.

    I like these basses from first glance.:hyper:

    I wonder about neck dive though - probably nothing a good strap wouldn't fix, but the short upper horn would affect balance to some extent.

    32" scale...hmmmm.....
    Using the guitar body....hmmmmmm

    Using a blade selecotr on the humbucker equipped model, so you can't blend pickups....hmmmmm....

    Both models look cool. I too worry about the neck dive. I had tele-bodied MIJ bass for a while. It was short scale and had horrible neck dive. Sent it right back to the shop I bought it from...

    Looks really cool and I hope it plays well, because I might be interested in one in the future. Anyone knows what the price tag is on one of these?

    $499 retail is what the spec sheet says

    I'm feelin' it!

    RE neck dive, can't be any worse than a G&L ASAT, right?

    it doesn't look like a standard tele body..

    it's somewhat oversized a bit..

    kudos to squier on venturing on this design.. much like the 51' back then

    Yeah I would even be pretty interested if it weren't so small.

    If you mean the nut width, just because it's not J-bass sized, I wouldn't call that a screw up. Some of us do prefer the wider neck.

    Oh, the nut width. I think that would work well on a 32" scale neck actually.
