    It looks awesoooooooooome.

  2. Skip Davies

    It looks hideous and cheesy, and Tina Weymouth of Talking Heads did way more shizniz with the Mustang, stuck a J p-up in, along with the original P-style one…this is just a cash in on a band loved by 14 year olds that want a bass that feels like a guitar, becuase Mikey is a terrible bass player and this bass doesn’t make sense…its a vintage styled ss instrument, with aa bloody Humbucker? and the sparkly silver? euuuurgh? I love my classic Mustang, and this is an insult to it…seems like squire just have to build sigs for THE crappest bands…makes the moneey though I guess/rant over/.

    • I totale agree on the ‘ boy band’ commentaar here; no real bassplayer to be found here!! But I just can’t believe squier translates this into crappy basses.. The squier Cris Aiken = just one GREAT (!!) P-bass…

  3. Mathew Thomas

    Looks way too gaudy for my tastes. The only aspects of this bass that appeal to me are the humbucker and the rosewood neck.

  4. What next a Pete Wentz signature P bass? I think I just threw up a little in my mouth.

  5. I love and play short scale basses, but if I wanted humbuckers…I’m not thinking Squier (more like a Gibson SG) and certainly not with this chessy look. Click the words “Short scale” next “More” in the related articles section above to see some nice basses. I would however buy a Mustang Sized and Styled Jazz Bass in a nice solid wood with no pickguard, no matter who’s signature was on it.

  6. Seems like all we’re going to see on this one is a bunch of My Chemical Romance hate lol. No surprises there.
    I don’t like the bass, and don’t think that he needs a signature bass at all (his sound honestly is not a signature kind of sound), but he’s definitely not a terrible bassist IMO. He does the job, even if its not incredibly creative. Funny how I’m saying this as someone who used to hate the band for pretty much no reason. Anyways, to each his own.

  7. why does fender / squier have to make a stupid retarded useless shitty artist models for every unknown artist who I have never even heard of?

  8. You’re kidding, right?

  9. If you want short scale silver sparkle, get the VM Jaguar bass.

  10. Bogus. Mikey Way? I think Skip Davies said it best-hideous and cheesy.

  11. Get rid of the body and change the neck and you’ve got one helluva bass ;).
