brass nuts should be stock

Roger Waters may not be Jaco on bass, but he knows tone and his bass sounds phenomenal live & in studio, always has...the new Live Wall bluray has the most unbelievably pure bass tone, I know he's used Ashdown, I've read that he used Ampeg on The Wall shows, so it's not the amp, you could plug this bass into a direct box and get great tone...the Seymour has been stock on he & Dave's axes since the 70's, so what's so special about the Waters bass ? the brass nut. the fat neck gets the bottom and that nut gets the punch, I haven't seen a brass nut on a stock bass since the 70's and once you hear it, you're going to want it. So much value compared to many overpriced Signature models. the Waters & the Geddy are two of the best deals from Fender, both are winners. Thanks to Sweetwater for posting pics, serials & weights for comparison, now that's service !! Sweetwater should petition Fender to make a Mex Gilmour, it would be the hottest guitar on the market if you stuck a $899 price tag on it...and it's possible, don't tell me a Strat needs to cost $5k (price jumps every year from Fender on Signature models) Squire never changes, so what's the difference ? Greed.

serious axe

before ordering i used to worry about the wide fingerboard, but not anymore... the beefy neck is amazing, playable and feels powerful (note that i dont have big hands). out of the box it was completely ready to gig. action, truss rod, intonation, all set.the spb3 pickups' output is so hot and they're a bit scooped at mids. but i love the tone. they're there to drive the PA like hell to blow the crowd away. at home or rehearsals you have to roll the instrument's volume back a bit if a less aggressive sound is desired.it's kind of a hot rod, '50s profile/modern sound.my complains are a deadspot on A on E string (i heard all the fenders have deadspots) and the pickguard which gets extremely scratchy very soon.love the F stamped neckplate.overall it's a serious axe for gigging, but for recording i may need a P bass with a more balanced output and spectrum (soundwise).

Waters Precision bass

Great sound and playability. Tone is more powerful than a normal precision but still clean. Great set-up by Sweetwater. It gets a 4 because Fender quality doesn't quite match the price. This MIM is, however, of better quality than the last two American-made Fenders I've had. A little different overall, in sound and appearance.
