    Stopped by the House Of Guitars in Rochester yesterday and walked out with this.
    Was not looking to buy anything. I could not turn down the deal they gave me.
    Did not think I would like the big neck but It feels great.
    Also got them to throw in a set of D'addario Chrome flats all for $800 out the door.

    Gonna put flats on it. I don't think it will be the D'addario's as I like GHS 45-105 Precision Flats.

    Looks great and I was considering one of these, but not at $924, thats absurd for a MIM Fender. $800 out the door is what these should be priced at. Congrats!

    Yes, there is no way I would have payed $924 plus 8% sales tax. I think it was a sweet deal at $800 out the door with a set of strings. Also it is the only MIM that comes with a hard shell case.

    I was looking at Musicians Friends stupid deal of the day the other day and they has a MIM P-J for $699 and no case or gig bag.

    The quality and workmanship is excellent on it.

    Bass is excellent. The Tweed with red lining puts it over the top.

    Put flats on it last night. I love this thing. I think it will be my #1 soon, and my Sire P7 will go back in the case.

    How thick/big is the 50's neck profile?

    I like Warwick necks, and P-bass necks and really like this model but I am worried it will be huge. I have absolutely no way of playing before buying either.

    Obviously it looks great, it's at the top of my list for gear, the very top.

    Great full C neck shape on these but not too thick. I like how it’s consistent up and down the neck. Congrats!

    Ive got the 2016 version of this in black - I love it too, and I didnt think I would like the thick neck or vintage frets but it plays great - sounds awesome. 8683760_800.jpg
