Anyone have any experience or heard anything about these? Found one in the local music shop and I'm heading down to play it tomorrow. Only 500 euro seems great for a brand new fender so I'm presuming there's a catch. I know they're made in China but it can't make that much of a difference can it? I'm liking the look of the double pups..

They seem to be the same ethos as the (now discontinued) Highway One series, Mexican standard parts assembled in East Asian factories (China I believe, in this case.) In which I have pretty high hopes for them. High mass bridges and real alder bodies and all for <£400 makes them pretty awesome. The pickups will be shit though, I can guarantee. Luckily, all of them are a standard shape, Dimarzio Willpowers in that Telebass will do.

damn. I was thinking about getting one of these, but that ruins it for me. I'm still kind of curious about the triple-coil pickup in the maruader though

When you break a bass string, that snapping sound is the sound of six dollars going down the crapper.

Guitar comments are welcome, surely. We're commenting on the quality, not the octave. Hardly a fail.

They're made in China and their pickups are "Modern Player" series so its anyone's guess how good they'll be. Personally, I can't see them being as good as the Vintage Modified series and certainly not as good as the Classic Vibe series from Squier. What they do have, however, is a decent* tonewood and "Fender" written on the head stock.

*(Something tells me they won't be using the choicest cuts.)

agreed.. the comment wasn't a fail... the fact that he didn't realize this is the bass forum, was.
