just grabbed another squire 50s p bass,cool look'n butterscotch blonde w/black p/g..amazing bang for the buck,obviously not a hi end instrument but the build is excellent.they made improvements over the earlier model (p/u not as noisy,hardware is better).
time to leave the old p/bass home and lug this one around...

i will probably keep the l/p blue,i like it and i'm getting nothing but insulting offers on craigslist.
the new bass played and sounded good on 2 gigs over the weekend,a tad beefy neck but i got used to it quick.
only bummer was the p/u was noisy,especially w/ the bigger amp and neon signs all over, but no prob w/ small amp in a no-neon enviorment.i'll prolly put a fralin p/u in this to cut down the hum. i threw some t/i flats on it and tweaked w/ a sansamp and dialed in a real fat tone. i did a quick set up so no fret buzz'n and action is nice.
i'll use this one for awhile to see how the wood stablizes,hopefully it's a keeper

plus,it looks frigg'n cool as all get out !!.... almost makes me look 20 lbs thinner and 10 yrs younger,, (yeah,almost....lol)
