Don't get it. looks like a cheap ****ty gimmick bass to me. Get a Squier Vintage Modified or Classic Vibe instead.

Why do you want the bass is the question I would ask. The bronco is a really (and I mean really) cheap version of the Mustang. If you are set on the tone, there are probably better short scale options out there.

oh its not the tone...its the cheapness and the shortscale.
a gimmick i suppose
but i think itd be fun to play a shortscale bass. ive never done it!
im kind of excited.
plus then ill have a backup, even though its terrible, ill still have a backup
thats just a bonus though, haha

It's about as low-end as you can find and play in a guitar store.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

If you want a gimmick shortscale, get a Dano 63 bass. Much much cooler.
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite

if you really want a dirt cheap short scale, then get th Gretsch g2202. It's single pickup is actually position just right and has syrupy sweet tone. I've played it in shop quite a few times and love it.

Don't do it! It was my first ever bass and it was a decent piece of crap. Please upgrade to a different bass, you will most likely regret buying a bronco.

Please, for everyone's sanity, please get a real Mustang! If boutique basses represent all that is holy and good, then the Bronco is the dilapidated minion from hell bent on dooming us mortals to an eternity of ****ty single coils and cheap wood.

haha, passion makes music. Its not that I necessarily haaate the Bronco, its just that I'm pretty sure taping rubber bands to a log would make a more musically suited instrument

EDIT: on second thought, somebody please do that ^ it would be epic

And much better sound. Much much better sound. And since Dano has stopped production on the reissue, dirt cheap at your local GC or online outlet.

I think we've dicussed this before, I have no experience of the uprights but I have never encountered a stagg electric bass that wan't sh*te.

Fair enough. I never, ever talk out of my ass and can only talk about my experiences - the upright's solid and all maple, and other Stagg basses looked and felt solid in the store, but that's pretty much as far as I know.

If the verdict is brand-new $200 basses suck, then don't blame Stagg. There's a reason they're $200 new.

Although I DID meet a Stagg endorsee who was going on an on about how great Stagg basses sound and how Chinese basses are the wave of the future. I... disagreed. Long story short, after we discussed his love for passive Chinese basses and my love for top of the line active Western basses, he did the ol' TalkBass - asked my age and then said "you'll learn". He was 40, tops.

However, all was not lost - the store tech and I pretty much talked him out of (or at least got him to heavily consider) accepting the Behringer endorsement he was offered. He wanted to do his studio in Behringer gear, so maybe it'd be worth taking. He has a Peavey endorsement too... man, this guy is such a TBer. I bet if I talked with him longer he'd pull out the "law of diminished returns".

I don't know man, I hate squiers. They are pretty cheap and I find the quality is usally poor. In my opinion they are the worst second-line guitars I've come across. Save your money and buy a nice one!


Not completely true. the vintage modified and classic vibe series are great quality instruments for their price.
