Fender Japan '70 Precision Bass PB70-75 Vintage White 1993
Fender '70 Precision Bass, made in Japan 1993, vintage white. These never last long when the land, it's hard to deny the simple appeal of this cool customer. First up, it looks good: the lightly aged vintage white finish is a creamy glory, and paired with a super dark choc rosewood board and the bold CBS-era logos, this is dressed sharp as a tack. These '70 style models have a 40mm nut, 2mm slimmer than a regular '62 or American Standard Precision but a little wider than a Jazz Bass, so that feels quick and slick and really makes it easy. The body is super light and very responsive, great for long sets and abounding in natural resonance. Plugged in, you get a punchy, thick and charming take on the classic P-thump with scrumptious mix of growly mids, snappy highs and tight, fat lows. If you're only going to own one bass to cover all your gigs and records, surely a tasty white P is an outstanding candidate.
