    A friend of mine, bass player and teacher/research worker in university (musicology doctorate) just told me that it's historically the original configuration of the first precision bass ever.

    The pickguard is the deal breaker.

    That's pretty cool. Good job by Squire.

    For someone who wants more of a boutique take on a Tele bass, Chris Stambaugh has been building his "Fossil" design for a few years.


    He's said he's also built it as a singlecut for people that want that look as well as five and six string versions. The standard is an oil finish but you could also get it finished in any color you want for an upcharge. Matching headstock, blocks, exotic top, preamp etc are all possibilities as well.

    The three Aero single coils and five position selector make for a ton of tonal variation.

    Neat. Wouldn't buy it, not interested in more Squiers, don't have space for another bass, but I like the idea. That humbucker + bridge j one is crazy.
  19. I posted these on my facebook yesterday which spawned the discussion: Squier is working really hard to get my money, and I have no interest in another Fender bass because of it...

    These basses are AWESOME

    There are probably more Squier models that I'd like at the moment than there are Fenders.

    (Assuming I was in the market for a 4-string.)
