I don't like maple necks on otherwise all black guitars. Otherwise I like it. BTW, what makes it a '51?

Yeah, what makes it a 51' besides of that it looks bad.
Looking for a new sig!

It's based on the Fender '51 bass, which featured a tele style headstock and a pickguard like the one on this guitar.

Sorry you guys feel that way. The guitar actually feels and plays really nice and offers a wide variety of sounds. Squier has come a long way and some of their guitars are still hit or miss, but this and my modifed Squier Affinity Tele are both exceptional guitars for the money.

I quite like how it looks, the combination of a black guitar with a maple neck is sweet

Yeah, especially the necks on the 51's are amazing; I'd say they rival MIM Fenders, easily (too bad the rest of the guitar is so cheaply made).

For a Squier, it rocks like all the minerals you studied at school. The pickup switching is wierd, though.
#16
Yeah, the pickup switching is a bit wierd. Maybe the original '51 bass employed a rotary switch. That's why I changed it to the Les Paul 3-way. It still has a coil tap (pull up on the volume knob).

The guitar sounds pretty good. The Paf Pro is a good choice for it. It gets as heavy as a stock Epi LP Standard but is a bit brighter because of the wood (basswood) and thinner body. Nice single coil tones.

all those nice features going in to such a shitty guitar. what a waste


They are actually nice to play and with good pickups I'm sure it sounds pretty nice aswell. Good job on the mod. I've been tempted to get one of these and mod it a bit.

Its a huge improvement on the original. However, I hate Tele's with a passion, so my opinion is somewhat biased. I like the black on black pickguard, though.
#21
i like the way it looks. Did you just paint the front of the headstock or painted the sides and back too?

it would look cool with a chrome lip stick or a chrome single coil pickup in the neck to match the control plate.
