    What's up with the bizarre headstock string retainer system Fender is using on these? That little arm coming off of the A string gear looks odd.

    It shouldn't take to long to fill up the club spots because Musicians Friend appears to have sold out. Ah shucks! :bawl: Like I really the scratch to get one. ;)

    I'll be in the club as soon as Fender does their offical release. I got my eye on a Blonde P with a maple neck. and LaBella flats.

  9. Looks like a genius idea, the A string causes me so much trouble.

    They're using them on the B-string on the 5ers too. They're marketing it as a "Stealth String Retainer"

    Looks and sounds like a good idea to me.

    You can see the stealth string retainer on the B string in the pics above. Pretty cool idea, but it seems to me that it would just be easier to put one of those straight-across bar-style retainers like Sadowsky and several others use.
  18. Beautiful bass!!!

    But am I the only person who thinks this particular color combo is SCREAMING for a tort guard? :cool:

    Haha! It really is! But I kinda like the simple black as well. IMO, it just adds a little attitude, like a goatee on a babyface. :eyebrow::scowl: Or maybe not. :smug:
  20. ooo these look pretty,cant believe u guys got some already
