    Hey Everyone!

    I recently bought a Squier Bronco Bass at a local guitar shop. It was there for almost one and a half year, but i never tried it out because it's a short scale model. I never played a SS bass before, because I always looked at these as a beginner bass. Damn I was so wrong.

    So last week when I was taking my Epiphone Thunderbird to the shop to set up the neck, I saw this bass one again. Asked the shop owner to try it out, and oh my god! It was fantastic! It plays like a dream! It has a fast neck, low string height, and a nice warm tone. It also has a Fender SCN pickup, which must be better than the original strat style one.
    So for approximately 60$, I couldn't left it there.
    Damn, I was so dumb to not try SS basses in the past. So it looks like I must change my current gear :roflmao:
    Here are some pics:

    I've had Precision and Jazz over the years, now I bought a Bronco and sincerely over the weight and short scale I found the bronco a all-around instrument with a great tone and punch ,with her lipstick is great.

    Nice catch!!!
    That baby would look good with a cream PG. I bought two Bronco to mod the heck out of, and the black one's PG had aged to cream.
