    I like the bass but for 6 grand id rather get a custom body made the same as it and a fender J neck buy a Rickenbacker 4003 and buy and Ampeg Svt and would prob still have change to go get drunk. Come on Fender you no this would make an awesome retail bass sort your self's out.

    At Summer NAMM in Nashville 08 I snagged this photo at the Fender display.


    :meh: ... Seems like their answer to the Lakland Decade?

    I've recently seen 60's LPB P-basses going for less than this new Fender.
  6. I dig it but not for $6,000. The CS has been a bit sparse too of late with their product line. I got a NOS 59 P-bass last year from the CS and just in time -- it was discontinued this year. I suspect the reason they've cut back is the economy.

    Ok, a nice USA Spector, and a pretty loud rig...that telelotto bass picture is starting to get blurry in my mind ;)

    I'll bet that bridge pup would brighten the tone up over a standard Tele bass.

    Same bass in "American Standard" quality for about $1500, and I would probably have another MIA Fender in my arsenal.

    That seems to be a bit much for a CS...IIRC, Master Built basses sell for around that range, but not your "standard" CS basses....

    $6000 would buy all of the 8 basses I play, plus the cabs and heads I own.
  12. looks great, but...
    (jumping on bandwagon) $6000 got me 12 months of rent last year. lol

  14. Really? It wasn't mine was it :)? I've just sold this "1961" LPB P Bass for about $2,000 ...


    :D OK, it was only a Fender CS model.

    I wonder if they used the same exact pickups from the Squier Telebass, or if the CS winded the reissues themselves.
  16. NOS with a BadAss bridge? (or are my eyes deceiving me?)
  17. Nope! Definitely a Badass II :smug:.

    for those wondering, exact same PUP as in the squier TB (you can purchase them for $89). I'm ordering a 2nd one, making a custom pick guard, and possibly going to repaint the body shell pink :) Gonna be sweet!
