Cool, although I'm not sure about the bridge description.
Scenesters will also love the stunning Burgundy Mist finish, vintage-style Jazzmaster bridge, large '60s-style headstock and metal control plate.
Looks like a TOM to me.

£343.00 @ this site, I couldn't get near the place @ NAMM.
Online stock status says "30 Weeks" in red:

I'm going to the liquor store to get some decent burgundy.

Looks great! I'd totally refinish that to something a little more edgy. Looks great as is though.

Some people not so knowledgeable about guitars refer to what we know to be the tremolo unit as "the bridge", as if everything behind the strings (including the real bridge) would be one thing.

I am into this Bass V 32 scale 4 string, but I am not a fan of the unnamed aspect of this. Just call it something. 10 out 10 would mudbucker.

I like it, except for the color and the bridge. Could be a real fun guitar to mod. I could see a Mustang bridge and Ocean Turquoise as the hot setup.

Looks like a kid's guitar to me. That thing appears to be tiny, like it would look like a ukulele on anyone over 5 feet tall.

The bass looks like a cross between a Telecaster, an Adam Clayton Jazz and a Rascal. If I got it I'd paint it a new color, but otherwise, nice.

Yes! If it's any good, I'm getting one. Thinking about replacing the humbucker with a hb-sized goldfoil :-)

The bass is basically a 4-string version of the infamous Bass V
