Fender Japan '70 Precision Bass Capri Orange 2000
Fender '70 Reissue P, capri orange, crafted in Japan 1999-02. Well, that's a loud finish! This bass usually only comes in olympic white, so it's certainly unusual to see this muscle-car-orange hue on offer. It's in terrific shape too, barely a mark on it for two decades of play. Aside from looking great, this has the deluxe touches that put it easily on par with any USA-made bass: alder body, USA pickups, rosewood slab board... it all adds up to a thick, rich tone with a heap of growl and thump; perfect-P goodness. The '70 style neck is a nudge slimmer than the more common '62 and '57 models, so it's conducive to quicker playing and feels effortless in the hands. If you're looking for a stage bass that'll shake booties and turn heads, surely the 'butter chicken P' is a winner!
