ooooh, very nice. Love the shape of those.
Is it medium scale? and what do the knobs do?

No, surprisingly she's a full 34".
The knobs are stacked concentric volume and tone controls.
So you've got Neck Pickup Volume 1 and Tone 1, Bridge Pickup Volume 2 and Tone 2.
The neck is really nice, 1.50” at the nut.
The Pickups are 1 Duncan Designed; split Single-Coil Precision Bass at the neck and a Single-Coil Jazz Bass Pickup at the neck.
Yet to have a chance to plug her in to an amp full noise, but when I do I'll let you know how she sounds.

Mrs still = :twisted:

A tone for each pick up is an awesome feature. And P/J is a great PU combo. IMO. Probably the best :)
Good luck with the Mrs

Wow, that looks cool, a bit simpler than the jaguar bass with all it's silly switches.

Hang on, wasn't it only a couple of weeks since your last NBD? We need a thread on how to hide new purchases from our better halves. If you think it is too dangerous to have it out in public, feel free to PM me with any tips :lol:

Nice looking bass. Squier is making some excellent basses in their vintage modified and classic vibe series. Looking forward to a review.

Nice, not too dissimilar from the Radian I'm getting soon :D big fan of the 'lesser-known' Fender shapes.

Haven't played that one, but I definitely agree on the quality of that range of Squiers. About the only one I didn't like was the Vintage Modified Jazz '77 - felt very 'brittle', both in build and in sound. GASsing for a Classic Vibe jazz in white...omnom. I wonder if they're going to extend the range to 5 strings?
