Fender Precision Bass '57 Reissue Black 2006-08
Fender '57 Precision Bass in classic tuxedo B&W, crafted in Japan 2006-08. These '57 style Ps with the maple boards are a fair bit harder to find than the regular rosewood board models, and gee you notice the difference in tone. This sleek and classy girl mixes a nice dash of cut and attack into the classic P roundness and warmth. The light body and moderate neck are super comfy; this is an absolute breeze to play. The neck features some really stunning flame maple, which is a nice little bonus you don't normally get without spending a heap of cash! It's in great shape with only a couple of minor marks and includes the original ashtray cover, so you can pat yourself on the back for going this way instead of buying something brand new. What a classy operator!
