Broooo! I got a smoothie coming this upcoming week! Stoked for that! How is yours?
Man that is cool!
I like it alot, but it is very different from any other stingray. The eq took some getting used to but I love it for what I use it for. I have flats on it for a more old school sound.
NICE! I was thinking about putting flats or tapes on mine. What strings are on your BFR? I think mine came with EB flats, but I'm gonna pop on some LaBellas.
Well, I thought my BFR fretless had GHS Precision flats on it because I think they have purple silks, but I just put some EB cobalt flats on my BFR fretted and noticed they have the same silks so I think that my fretless has the EB cobalts as well. I also might try some labellas on the fretless at some point. Likely the low tension ones.
I have the regular tension string through the body labellas on my old smoothie and they are great.
Haven't seen that one - is it a special edition of some sort?
Yes - it is a strictly MIJ limited edition; whatever this means. I already sent an e-mail to Fender in order to get an idea on how limited this edition is. I would guess something between 250 - 500 pieces ( was the same with the Sambora Black Paisley Strat back in 96). I pre-ordered mine at Thomann and as soon as I placed the pre-order it was listed as sold-out. So I assume that they only got one or two.
By the way - the also launched a limited run of a Strat and a Tele in the same black paisley finish. I was thinking of getting all three but since I also ordered an new Maruszczyk, my budget was somehow limited...
Oh yes! So much yes. Where did you find that?
Got mine from Thomann (sold out already)- I know Musicstore has another one available; I think I also saw one at Andertons but not sure if it was in stock
I thought that Fender Japan was discontinued - from the sound of this apparently not unless it is NOS.
True - the regular line was discontinued. They are only doing some special runs...don‘t think that these were NOS as they were just shipped over from Japan.
On the other hand i did not find any official announcement by Fender.
That's good - doing 'special' Fenders is what the Japanese do best anyway!
Newly resurrected 1967 Watkins Rapier short-scale 24 fret bass - Incoming resurrection project... '67 WEM/Watkins Rapier short scale
I would even say that any Fender the Japanese do is the best
Wow that is beautiful!
I think its done! I just need to let the epoxy cure...
Hey all! Here's my latest video. Checking out my Squier Paranormal Jazz bass. Enjoy!
It's odd that you have the only one that I've seen anywhere.
My hope is that it is a production model and not a prototype.
We will soon know for certain when they all start hitting the streets.
The truth is out there...
