    Nope, pretty sweet color though. From what I've heard, Squier has stepped up their Affinity line (if this is a new one, that is)

    I don't think it is. I think even the Affinity line gets gold lettering nowadays, this has the straight black Squier logo.

    I love that color. I'd buy it and put a better neck on it. Assuming the body is to your liking anyway.

    Butterscotch looks so dang good...

    No, those are part of the new Affinities being made in Indonesia by Cort. The serial suggests , 7th week in 2015. So new stock. Have at it!

    That's sure some funny looking rosewood.
     
  9. Yes, I saw this pack. The bass looks intriguing. Looks a bit like the VM P that I always wanted to try.

    Same here.
    Only thing that kept me going to pick it up at L&M was they are bloating the pricetag by including a practice amp that is not needed.
     
  11. Wait for a 15-20% coupon from GC or MF and then sell the amp.

    KEEP THEM COMING!

    Nice looking new bass. The wood grain is a little bit boring, but the color is amazing!

    This is a little late, but I bought one because I wanted an inexpensive sunburst/maple combo - hard to find! Good instrument, tweaked the neck dropped the action a bit and bingo. The body is a little light but it works. Neck is smooth and straight and the pickups are passable. Changed the pickguard to white (was black). Can't find these outside of the box set. Indonesian made..
