I did it. I finally bought a bass guitar to learn to play. And it's a beauty.

She's a Squire Classic Vibe 50's Precision Bass in Lake Placid Blue. Big fat neck with tiny frets. Electronics are perfect. Aside from a few dings on the edges the finish is stunning in person. The picture doesn't come close to showing the sparkle it has in the sunlight.

Love those basses! Was heavily considering buying one when they first came out, but I went a different route instead because I had a great p-bass already.

Looks like an excellent instrument, time to play the snot out of it!

The CV50's Strat is a marvel. I had one for a while. The Toneriders in it are incredible. I didn't believe it, so I got a set of 65 Gray Bottom fresh out of a Custom Shop Fender Strat. I figured the skies would open and the angels would sing. They didn't. One month later, Toneriders went back in and Custom Shop pups got traded for a pair of Gibson P94.

Your not kidding. My bandmate is a big strat guy. He had a SRV style Partscaster with CS Texas specials in it as his #1, and a early 2000s Am Std. and a 70's lawsuit MIJ for backups. He got a beat up, spray painted CV50s for 75 bucks one day and it became the new #1.

Good for you on the new bass. I have a 60's CV Precision bass and I love it. They did a great job with the CV line. Congrats and enjoy!
