Reminds me of an unlucky, sad, butchered 70's telebass. Fender got closer IMO aesthetically & functionally with the modern player telebass. I dig the classic tele design, guard and control plate but that black single coil just kills it for me. I would want one if it was another bucker with a coil tap for instance. That would be the perfect combo of aesthetics and functionality for me.

This one fell out of the fugly tree. [smilie=cheeky-smiley-025.gif]

Love the look and that might eventually get me to buy one. (Used and cheap)
But looks alone never get me to keep a bass. Feel, tone and utility rule in the longer term.

I can dig it. If I got one, I'd be tempted to upgrade the Fender humbucker to a Gibson mudbucker and maybe something different at the bridge position.

Dave, I think this bass would be a fun "buy-to-mod-it" instrument. Yanno, pick it up for a song used like Mick said and build it bigger faster and stronger [smilie=cheeky-smiley-025.gif] I was thinking route the back for another matching bucker or coil tap, a tort guard and refin the head stock white. Maybe age the tuning machines and BA2 and we'd be having some fun! [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]

Might be cool refinned in CAR w/ matching HS & mint guard. Jeez I have a sickness.

I missed this one, altogether. A single coil Vintage Modified Telecaster Bass!

Image

Squier is very proud to introduce its new Telecaster Bass, which presents an exciting new sonic and stylish twist on a long-familiar design.

Its time-honored body and headstock shape are well balanced by a comfortable medium scale length (32") that will appeal to bassists and guitarists alike. Remarkable tonal versatility comes from a single powerful Duncan Designed™ PB-102 SCPB single-coil pickup and three-way switching among special tone circuits, which feature a modern bass sound (middle switch position, volume and tone controls), softer "double bass" sound (neck switch position, volume control only) and authentic tic-tac "baritone" sound (bridge switch position, volume control only).

Other distinctive features include black "barrel" switch tip, knurled chrome control knobs, vintage style bridge with two brass saddles, vintage-style tuners and strap buttons, and single-ply pickguard (white on Black model, black on Vintage Blonde model).

Been curious to try some flatwounds - haven't played them for years. That's proper justification for one of these, right? [smilie=coz.gif]
