    If I had to guess, it'd retail for 699, just like the Geddy Lee and Mike Dirnt.

    I'm eagerly awaiting its arrival at the shop near my office, because I think I'd love a P/J bass with a Quarter Pounder P and noiseless J. I think it would be cool to be able to dial out some of the QP's boom, and have it filled in with J growl. I wish it had a P body, and maybe blue sparkle finish with pearloid binding, but I suspect I'm alone on the latter point! :D

    Anyway, the MSRP is $999, and I'm told it will sell for $699.

    The dealer gave me a copy of Fender's promo sheet for retailers, which is pretty funny. It suggests using these "buzz phrases": "The angry man bass;" and "Sling it low, and let the low end flow."

    Im curious to hear how it sounds with that pickup combination, but it looks kinda plain in my opinion.
