(SOLD) Fender American Special Precision Bass Sunburst 2011
Fender American Special P, made in USA 2011, sunburst. This is all class and no fuss. The American Special was the slightly trimmed-down version of the American Standard line, so this has a few differences: lightweight tuners, satin finish slim profile neck, 70s style headstock, a 'greasebucket' tone circuit and usually a lighter bridge. The bridge on this has been upgraded to a Gotoh high-mass model, improving the sustain and adding some tasty punch and brightness to the sound. The tone is classic-P: thick, punchy, round and warm; the tone circuit also has a sweet signature treble-roll-off that's very user-friendly. The white guard has been switched for black, adding to the clean look. This bass spent a bit of time with overachieving Tassie punks Luca Brasi, but despite it's busy past, it's in great shape. This rules, you'll love it!
