  1. Sorry about that, but I was weak! Frankly for the money, flip it!
  2. I have a Fender jazz Pro, I today tried the classic vibe range of basses. I today bought a classic vibe precision because it felt lovely, the country of origin or body didn't make a difference to me.
  3. Because I'm a tart and I didn't like the colour scheme!
  4. I went shoppng for a cheap backup bass yesterday, tried 3 squiers. The first, a squier contemporary jazz was a dog, heavy, brittle sounding pickups and a rough almost unfinished neck. Hastily handing this back I was given a Vintage modified jazz to try which was almost perfect. I could barely tell the difference in feel from my US jazz. Umming and arring I then tried another vintage modified in my preferred colour scheme and this left a lot to be desired. It was better than the first bass but nowhere near as good as the second. All the basses were made in Indonesia. I didn't come away with anything on this occasion but it goes to show the need to try before you buy on instruments at this price.
  5. I've had to put it up for sale unfortunately, not by choice! They just feel great to play.
  6. What is the nut width on these?

  8. Sire get a lot of love and cheaper than your budget.
  9. Hard on the fingers, eqt frets and die quickly but for those brief moments the Roto steels sound better than anything else out there for me.

  11. I shall be going to see if my local shop has these in stock. Is it fair to say they are effectively the replacement for the American Special basses?
  12. When you say US classic what do you mean? Is it the custom shop 60s that came in the US Standards?
  13. If this is the new American Special I'll be having a close look.
  14. 2011 US Special Precisions also have the commemorative neck plate.
