Just received a Fender Standard Telecaster Precision Limited edition (MIM) from MF yesterday. I'm transitioning from my short scale Franken-bass I've been playing for about 5 years. I've always loved the look of the 50's P-Bass (Tele body and headstock - B.Blonde). Played about a half hour last night and fingers are sore, just out of the box - no real setup yet. Setup was not bad, frets clean, I was really surprised how nice it was. Like I said I love the look, but after my broke in SS there is a bit of transition. I wasn't expecting the size of the C-shape neck, was fatter than expected - but silky smooth finish. I'm going to take it to practice tonight and switch off between basses. I'm really torn, I love the look but don't want to keep a bass that is hard to play. Any suggestions to improve the feel? I'm thinking maybe going to lighter strings while I'm getting used to it (with a setup). The heavier string tension was a change as well (dang SS). I'm also seeing another trade-off with the Tele style body, no belly cut and a harder edge by my wrist. Just trying to decide if it's something that I'll grow into or maybe I should send it back and keep shopping. I'm thinking I should have one full scale bass. I realize its a personal choice, but wondering if anyone has had a similar experience. Unfortunately only MF had this special so there was no way to try it first.
