Fender Japan '70 Reissue Precision Bass PB70-70US Olympic White 2003
Fender '70 Precision, crafted in Japan 2002-4, olympic white. These CBS-style P Basses often attract plenty of attention owing to their bold styling; they're a very cool looking bass. They also come stock with a tasty alder body and a Fender USA pickup, offering a tight, defined and well balanced take on the classic P-thump. They compete very favourably in terms of tone and feel with all but the fanciest of USA models owing to their brilliant build quality and vintage specs. This one has had a colourful life that's included some stickers (since removed) leaving some fade marks and a slightly seasick mint guard; it's a cool look and fitting of a bass that's so perfect for playing punk. Also, the neck is a dream. It's got swagger, no?
