Alto Music is now selling the Supro Jamesport for $299 (white, bronze, blue)
This is the single pup model; think "LP junior". Bronze was a C.M.E. exclusive, but guess that don't matter now, lol.

-today is the last "safe" day to also take advantage of the Supro $130 coupon promo. Purchase must be made between 09/01 - 12/01

Got my Squier baby Mustang today. Went with seafoam
Good solid build, tuners holding firm and decent tone variety between the two pups and the tone knob.
So it's holding true as a good choice in this $100+ price range.
Only gripes are
-about four fret ends (just enough edge to them that you can feel with your fingertips)
-grimey/dirty frets. Might be the strings but won't hurt to polish the frets up while I do the re-string
I was going to go with my normal 10's and fully expected it to feel more slinky (due to it being a short scale guitar). But I may need to go out and buy 11's (think the current strings on there now are 10's).
Also got to try out the Ashdown amp, beyond just music streaming.
It's firmly in the practice/tabletop amp category, which is fine by me. If I want to rattle the walls, I'll hook up some extension cabinets or powered monitors.
(Pay no mind to the saran wrap... it's keeping the glossy faceplate safe from dirty looks)
All the wireless connections plus the ability to accept bass and guitar inputs at the same time were the big draws for me. Streaming music and connecting to a pc are bonuses.
So far, nice clean and clear sounds at all volume levels. Think it's a keeper (@$200, 650-NoThxU).
Actually lucky it works at all, considering the condition of the box
It was trashed all over. That hole on the "AL" of B-SOCIAL woulda been scary if it had been on the speaker side of the amp.
So what did the Great Omnipotent Turkey get you???
