Used Fender Precision Bass '62 Capri Orange CIJ

Fender P-bass, crafted in Japan 1997-00, in awesome capri orange finish. This bass looks fantastic! You don't see many orange P's around, it sure is eye catching. The PB-38 is a one of the more basic '62 reissue style models by Fender Japan, but a previous owner has upgraded the pickup with a passive USA Dimarzio, so it's packing plenty of punch. It has a big, warm growl with a nicely balanced midrange. The body is very light and resonant, it's very easy on the back! The neck has a nice matte-finish on the back, it's an effortless player that's hard to put down. This is a seriously cool P-bass with the tone to match.

Cosmetic condition notes: Light finish wear. There'a couple of worn patches/chips where the finish has come off near the input jack, as well as a ding approx 1cm long and 1mm deep on the back, both pictured. Some light discolouration on bridge and machine heads. Neck and fretboard very clean. Frets have some minor wear, there's plenty of life in them. All in all, good condition.

Playing condition notes: Action is low, neck is straight, intonation is good. All electrics tested and working properly. The body really is light, it's a very comfortable easy player. Set up with fresh 45/105s.
