(SOLD) Fender Japan '70 Precision Bass PB70-70US Olympic White 1998
Fender P, '70 Reissue, aged olympic white finish, crafted in Japan 1997-00. The big bold headstock on these CBS era models has won many fans, and in combination with a classic reverse-tuxedo finish like this, it really does look great. The olympic white is showing some signs of it's two decades on the planet; it's cool to see the hours of play peeping through in a subtle way. These were a deluxe model in their day, so you get a USA pickup and an alder body, which adds up to a sweet well balanced tone with plenty of definition and punch. This will compete very favourably with USA-made models; it's a superb bass. P for 'proper cool'.
