    Fender sells guitars/basses to make money. That's pretty much it.

    If there's a market for something, someone is going to try to sell it, no matter how trendy or "frivolous" it seems. I'm sure there will be a line of Sum-41 being made and sold someday, for the same reason that there's already a Mark Hoppus bass, a Tom Delonge guitar, a Jerry Horton guitar, a Tom Araya bass, etc.

    Sum-41 will never be as popular as Blink-182. Their record sales have been good, but not mind-blowing.

    i hate to burst everyone's bubble, but you would be surprised at how well the hoppus sig plays-you just have to be able to see past the pink and the blue :eek:
  15. Yeah, I just got the new musician's friend today, and it has it's own inset. People are right when they say it'll probably sell a lot. I've not tried it yet, so I'm not going to judge how it sounds until I actually play one

    I'm not a Blink 182 fan by any means, but Blink 182's song Carousel actually has a fairly good bass line (for them, at least). It's just all the worse when someone shows they can play better than they do, but yet they hold back, just out of laziness.

    Another thing, I've heard from quite a few people that this is a good bass, so I wouldn't bash it just because of who plays it.
