(SOLD) Fender '62 Precision Bass PB62-53 Vintage White 2000
Fender '62 P, vintage white, crafted in Japan 1999-02. The white Precsion Bass... it's hard to imagine not getting along well with such an agreeable character. This one has seen a few things in it's time, but the creamy finish looks all the better for a few marks around the place. The classic tort/rosewood/white combo never goes out of style. This one is also amazingly light at 3.67kg; 8.08lbs for those stuck in the old ways... a good 20% lighter than a lot of Ps we get through. The body resonates with vibrant enthusiasm during play; it feels awesome and delivers a really tasty natural, balanced tone with a heap of nuance and sensitivity. If you're after a partner for hard work, this classically cool creature is surely a girl's best friend.
