Fender Japan '70 Reissue Precision Bass PB70-70US Olympic White 2002-04
Fender P, '70 Reissue, aged olympic white finish, crafted in Japan 2002-04. 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. Olympic white is a dream finish on a P, it's just superb. The neck on this is marginally slimmer than the more common '62 model, and this one is sporting a particularly fine dark-chocolate rosewood board; it's easy on the eyes and the hands. The alder body and USA pickup offer bright, balanced, warm growl with a heap of roundness and class; it's a cut above the basic models and will easily rival any USA offering. Perfect starts with a 'P', you know?
