    it seems that the new Mustang reissue bass is out:


    i have had rumors about the new Precision and Jazz bass America Deluxe. 4+1 headstock and 18 volt preamp.

    can you confirm? something else on the new Frontline/Bass street?
    let us know and post pics if you can!!
  2. yep- Guitarist reviewed the 4 string versions- the neck joint is now a 5 bolt with a rounded heel- they've done similar neck joint mods on some Strats too.
  3. I have also been curious about the new 18-volt electronics. Personally, I kinda liked the 9-volt electronics, so if there's any improvement, then great! However, I've never had the time to sit for a while with a Fender, so I wouldn't have noticed dead spots and such.

    the local fender dealer said they are getting some.
    they are MIM's
    and will be priced around $320 or so.
    and some of them have the cool racing strip.

  7. Cool.I like the Mustang basses.

    I was just reading the Bass street flyer and saw them in there. :) Wonder how they will sound?
  8. The American Deluxe FMT 5 has a 4+1 headstock and A new 18 volt preamp, although I'm not sure if it's the same one or not.
  9. I really like the new 3-pickup Cyclones they're putting out--did someone say Adrian Belew? :D
  10. Musicians Friend's website has the new Precision Deluxe V. With the 18 volt electronics and the 4+1 tuners, the bass is looking pretty good. Still wonder what the B is like on those. No one around here has a new one yet.
