(SOLD) Fender Japan '70 Precision Bass PB70-85 Olympic White 1993
Fender '70 Precision Bass, olympic white, made in Japan 1993-4. I love these 70s style P basses, they're awesome. This has the Dee Dee Ramone aesthetic, with the big bold black CBS era logos, rosewood slab board and a strong reverse tuxedo black and white finish... funk as puck. The white has yellowed significantly to a buttery yellow with a few marks around the place, which combined with the aged hardware, black guard and streaky rosewood, looks awesome. The combo of an ash body and a USA pickup makes for a lively, bright and articulate take on the classic P-punch... it's clear and snappy, but never lacking for meaty heft through the low end. The slightly slimmer 40mm nut makes for a fast and comfy neck, and paired with a lightweight body, this is a really fun and easy bass to play. I really dig this, I hope you can give it a loving home.
