(SOLD) Fender Japan '70 Precision Bass PB70-70US Olympic White 2004
Fender '[70 Precision, olympic white, crafted in Japan 2004-5. I love a creamy white Precision delight, and this one has some added bonuses: a bunch of cool sticker marks and honest play wear. It radiates swagger, with the worn white contrasting against a dark streaky rosewood board and the bold black CBS-era logos. The neck on these 1970 style models has a 40mm nut, around 2mm skinnier than a standard P but wider than a Jazz Bass, which I find very comfy indeed. The combo of an alder body and the USA pickup lend this plenty of clarity and spank to balance the growly mids and punchy lows, it really does sound great. There's a lot to like here, I like it a lot.
