Black Friday has some deals on these (Squier classic vibe). The only used ones that come up are the older VM’s which have some issues. I've always had my eye on one of these to experiment, but it could be an experiment that goes horribly wrong. I’m considering though. Thoughts: 1) I write a lot of solo stuff in alternate tunings. Often dropping the low strings to B or A. This could be a cool thing to write for. I’m not jazzed about losing so much high end, but some weird hybrid bass/baritone tuning could be cool. 2) I’ve always wanted a baritone. I could string it up A-a and deal with the 30” scale (the JM baritone is also 30” and at B-b). I think it would be easier to dump and less of an investment if I don’t like it than a proper baritone. 3) I don’t have a bass with me at the moment. My bass playing is usually limited to jamming out to r&b and disco just for fun, or recording some dub style basslines on tracks. I’m thinking I could get by recording with it in a pinch. Especially if I put a humbucker in the neck. I’m a flats guy so I feel like that could take care of half the battle. The ability to put a jag mute on it for quick 60s sounds is also enticing. 4) The trem. Love offset trems. The 30” JM baritone doesn’t have it. I don’t think anything in the same price range does. I think the newer mustang style bridges on them solve some previous issues but I’m not sure. 5) I really need to know if it sounds like a sega genesis when you run it through octave fuzzes.
