Used Fender Precision Bass '57 Reissue Black
Fender P-Bass, '57 reissue in tuxedo style black-and-white, made in Japan 1993/4. Maple board '57 MIJ P basses aren't that common, as they were the high-end models that fetched a bit more when they were new. The maple-board/black-and-cream combo oozes class and mojo, it's a seriously great looking instrument. The tone is a little brighter and more defined than a standard MIJ P, it's got a really nice tight sound with plenty of rumble and nice little dose of cut. The neck feels awesome, it's well balanced and reassuringly chunky. The bass has a US Fender pickup and the spiral saddles, both are nice factory upgrades. You really can't go wrong with a good P, and this is one is very good indeed.
