    Hey - did they stop making the Squier VW Precision TB bass?

    I was just punting around on fenders website for a while. Didn't see that version.

    I bought one about 5 yrs ago - it's an amazing BOOMING powerhouse of a bass. A friend was looking into getting one and couldn't find one. When I took a look, neither could I.
    If they stopped making, it's a shame. Was a great value.

    I believe Fender have stopped making some models in the the Squier Vintage Modified series. I have been trying to buy a Butterscotch Maple VM Precision but they are out of stock here in Australia. Fender told my local dealer they've stopped making certain colours. Dang! I think they're pushing the newer lines like the Cabronita too.

    My local store has two. Will get one later today and post pic. For now the intention is for the few reggae songs I cover. For my other stuff will use my more versatile fender jag.

    Can't wait for later!

    Damn, 499 msrp on the fender site! I paid about 240 - and it was/is a GREAT value. Deep, booming tone. Like a lot of reviews say, not the most versatile bass, but a back to basics workhorse. Put in many a club/bar all-nighter with it.

    I played Fender telebass (not the Squier and not the theme subject,I know) and that thing were incredible! It was an old tb from 70s...I mean - ground shaking!

    There is one for sale near me. I want another one to go fretless with. My wife seems to think I've spent enough. I want that second one so bad!

    Edit: Yes, they are getting somewhat difficult to find. Ebay doesn't have them quite as often as it used to, yet you can find the 70's Tele II all the time.
