    ..and here I was hoping.. :bawl:

    Oh well, might as well keep it, it wasn't that bad price, considering it has Duncan '59 pup, hardtail with strings through body and actually surprisingly decent build to be a MIC Squier. I guess I'm a guitar owner then :meh:

    Hey, it could be worse, it could have Floyd Rose on it :eek: Oh, it's a Squier Tom Delonge model.

  2. Was it some type of e-bay sale?


    personally I think the guitar looks nice.

    you're gonna get alot of crap from other TB'ers about it being squier and a T.Delonge...

    I like the M. Hoppus bass me self:)


    Rock on...

    (oh...and don't make the bass(es) jealous;)):oops:

    hehehe...you got hosed :p
     
  4. hmm, all I can say is that it looks pretty good for a squire. And I don't hate the other members of Blink182 other than Mark. I think Tom is a pretty good guitarist and the drummer is pretty tight. But mark sux, period.

    Yes, I'm such a sucker when it comes to basses ;)

    Oh, Osama, to my eyes it's rather a nice and simple strat that just happens to carry the name Tom Delonge on it's neckplate. Actually that's a nice bonus, I get to say "Hey Blink182 like totally rawks man! I dig them so much I bought Tom's signature guitar!!" :p

    It looks pretty decent so far, only negative thing I have found out is that the finish chips instead of denting - I already knocked a tiny bit off with a screwdriver while peeking under the jack. Looks like the body is solid wood too, not too bad deal for the $250 I paid with the replacement pup.
     
  6. dude...you can get one new from M.F for 180...are you crazy?


    you got jipped:)

    ;) :oops:

    Call is a super short scale 6 string piccolo bass. That's what I do with mine, it clears my conscience ;)

    I dig the DeLonge strat... it sounds awsome... and the hoppus bass is punchy as hell when you play finger style...
