Saw this at Sam Ash. Any ideas?
Never mind--it's the Rascal--that's why it looked sort of familiar
(i edited my original post--because after I posted it I saw while I was typing scourge answered)
They sound great. If it was 4 inches longer, I would seriously consider buying one.
Ah yes, the Fender Rascal.
I like the 30" scale, and the Seymour Duncan lipsticks are sweet sounding, and the master volume is a push/pull, so when you're in the neck position, pull up the knob and you have the bridge pick up too! And with the neck/mid position, you have all three pickups on.
I really dig it and I want to get one sooner than later, but it's on the wish list.
It's MIM, and has a 9-1/2" radius and medium jumbo frets.
It's got a cool look, and the only thing I would do is put on a black pearloid pick guard on it.
I liked it, my only issue was that the neck sticks out as far as a 34 inch neck. This means the short scale doesn't do a lot, and you had to reposition your entire playing technique to accommodate for it. I would move my hand to play over the bridge pickup, but hit the bridge saddle instead. whoops.
It makes no sense where they put the bridge. Even the guy in the video mentions that it is in the way. A lot depends on how the guitar hangs on you as to how far you have to reach. I went down to Alembic and played a Stanley Clarke model one day. It was very neck heavy and I was reaching to play in F like it was a long scale.
I'd buy it if you could adjust the truss rod without removing the neck!
