(SOLD) Fender Japan '70 Precision Bass PB70-70US Olympic White 2000
Fender Precision, white, crafted in Japan 1999-02. I'm a longtime fan of these 1970 style P models, they're a really terrific bass. First up, it looks awesome: creamy white finish, tastefully decorated with sticker fade marks, yellowing and light scuffs from play, accented by the black guard and bold black logos. The neck has a 40mm nut, putting it halfway between a vintage style P and Jazz in terms of width and profile. The slightly slimmer neck and the lightweight body make for easy playing: it's intuitive and comfy and never makes you work too hard. The alder body and USA pickup make for a tasty tone: fat and full, rounded lows, clear through the treble, plenty of punch. These win a lot of friends in the store and seldom last long, guess why?
