It got leaked to an offset forum a few days ago (same one who had the photos of the VM offsets), first retailer (same as last time) has the pre-order up.

A real Bass VI for < $400, I am about to cry.

$359 or thereabouts street

Black, white and sunburst? Wow shock me, Fender.

But I am probably in for a Black one. Always wanted to try one, never wanted to spend the money on it.

Like mfitzie, always liked the idea but never had the need or the opportunity to try one.

I think I will get one to see what they are like.

Yea, color choices are vapidly uninspired, but for three and a half bills, who cares.

Imagine how sweet those things would be in Surf Green, Sonic Blue, etc...

But like the Rev said, at that price, I'll buy a black one anyway.

I may not imagine, I have a guy who redoes the existing Squiers in alternate colors and it's in my price range.

Giving serious thought to having it done when they come out.

Fender had an orange back in the day that has been RI'd a time or too. It would look good in that orange too.

I'd kind of like to have one of these.

Don't think they've hit shops beyond a very limited few in Europe.

Fender *just* added these to the site on Friday.

Big retailers aren't showing them on their sites except Sam Ash, who has none in stock.

Sweetwater told me later in August.

What kind of amp would they sound good through? Most typical guitar amps, rather than a bass amp?

Guitar amps with big speakers usually.

Loud and clean does it for me with them.

If I want distortion, I'll add it with pedals.

Well, MF and Music123 have the Squire Bass VI on their site now for sale @ $349 to ship on 8/16.

I can't believe how I am gassing for one of these.

Nobody has them at the big chains, but literally any day.

I got one from a store in the middle of nowhere in Utah.

Sunburst, not Oly, but I'll live.

Will be here Friday-Monday depending on UPS pickup time.

Shop took me a photo of the beast. It exists.

Very nice.

I'm sure you'll play some cool Jazz on it.
