  1. I just had a look at their offerings,didn't see anything of interest. Looked at Thomann stock, the 55 P-bass in surf green looked interesting,then I saw the price tag :jawdrop:

    Even with 50% off it'd be near £2k . I'll pass :thumbsup:

    I forgot about the new MIJ Reissue Jazz Bass with ash body and 7.25" radius neck. DEFINITELY would get one of those! Still might get one without the discount!

  6. May I please have a 50% off coupon for a Wal, Jens Ritter, Carl Thompson, or Alembic? Even though the half-price would still be a reach for me.

    Bassman 100T head. As far as basses, I own a MIM Geddy Lee signature jazz and an MIM standard fretless jazz (modified) - so my needs there are covered.

    IDK man, I prefer the sound of J, but I absolutely hate the body shape, much prefer the P body. Sooooo that's largely why i don't own a Fender.

    Nothing. Fender's offerings for a left handed player border on a cynical joke, compared to what they offer anybody else. I already have a very nice '78 3TB P-Bass. And a burst finish P-Bass equals a sizable percentage of what I could buy new from them. I don't need or want another one; so, no thanks. You can have my 50% off coupon if you want. I'm sure you can find something you like ...:whistle:

    I'd probably want to order something from the Fender Custom Shop, maybe something like the Jamerson Funk Machine, but with normal setup/action. The only trouble would be that I would want a new instrument, and the Fender Custom Shop only seems to do relics these days. Admittedly, I don't follow Fender or the Custom Shop too closely, but when did they stop making new basses that look like new basses?

  20. Fender Mustang in Torino red. I'd keep it rather than flip it.
